A new unified anti-government movement has emerged in Pakistan amid a worsening economic crisis. The movement has been trying to oust Imran Khan from his position and undermine the army.
According to Indian Express, The PDM was formed in September by the leader of the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam, Fazal-ur-Rehman, but constituted by 11 political parties, representing virtually the country’s entire political spectrum in Pakistan.
It has brought together the two mainstream but rival political parties, the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) led by Bilawal Bhutto and the Pakistan Muslim League (PML) led by the exiled Nawaz Sharif, but currently headed by his daughter Maryam.
In early October, 11 of the country’s opposition parties held their first unity rally as the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM), banding together to take on Khan’s Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf party.
Later, It has held three massive political rallies, in Pakistani Punjab’s Gujranwala on October 18, in Karachi two days later, and in Quetta on October 25.
