Pakistani police has booked Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif for allegedly provoking people and creating hatred against the armed forces on the basis of a video clip forwarded using WhatsApp.

The complaint was lodged in Rawalpindi on Wednesday by advocate Ishtiaq Ahmed Mirza, who claims to be the chairman of IM Pakistan party.

The one-page complaint registered by the police is not the same as an FIR and is known in local parlance as a roznamcha, The Dawn newspaper reported.

Mirza claimed he had received a video clip via WhatsApp which purportedly showed Sharif making a speech provoking people and creating hatred against the armed forces.
