Journalist Imran Riaz Khan Arrested at Lahore Airport Before Hajj

Imran Riaz Khan, a well-known Pakistani journalist, was arrested today. Reports on X (formerly known as Twitter) indicate that he was taken into custody at Lahore International Airport by both uniformed and plainclothes officers. Although a court had previously allowed Imran to travel for Hajj, he was stopped before he could board his flight.

Imran’s team posted on X condemning the arrest, stating that he was treated rudely. They mentioned that during the arrest, Imran kept reciting prayers.

Imran Riaz Khan is a famous journalist, TV host, and YouTuber in Pakistan. He is known for his candid opinions on social and political issues, often criticizing the Pakistani military and government. He has worked with various Pakistani news channels, hosting shows and commenting on current events.

Besides his television work, Imran has a strong online presence, especially on YouTube, where he has many followers. Imran was previously arrested on March 7 and was placed on judicial remand by the Anti-Terrorism Court (ATC) in Lahore. He had been granted bail earlier in a corruption case by an anti-corruption court. The Pakistan Federal Union of Journalists (PFUJ) and the International Federation of Journalists (IFJ) have urged the government to drop the charges against him and allow him to resume his work.
