Muslim League (AML) chief Sheikh Rashid Ahmed said on Friday that May 9 was the darkest day of Pakistan's history and it should be condemned in strongest words.

Talking to the host on a Samaa TV show, Sheikh Rashid said he wanted general amnesty for all people linked to the May 9 violence. He said the Pakistan Army and General Asim Munir should pardon all ordinary citizens for what they did on May 9, but they should deal with the planners of the May 9 riots under the army law. 

Answering a question about his sudden disappearance, Sheikh Rashid said he had gone on a religious journey and he could not even inform his family members before leaving. He said he stands by the Pakistan Army and he has always been with the army. He said that Pakistan was too weak to move forward without the support of the institutions. 

Answering a question about PTI leaders behind the May 9 violence, Sheikh Rashid said that people like Shahbaz Gill, Hammad Azhar, Shireen Mazari and Zulfi Bukhari were the ones who prepared the ground for confrontation with the army. He said there was no point in going for confrontation with the army. 

Responding to the question that why did PTI Chairman Imran Khan launch an onslaught on General Asim Munir, Sheikh Rashid said it was a mistake of Khan and his allies to begin a confrontation with Gen Asim.
