Prime Minister Muhammad Shehbaz Sharif says dialogue is deeply embedded in the political process, which helps democracy mature and evolve.

In a tweet today, he said many political and constitutional breakthroughs occurred when political leaders sat across the table to craft a consensus.

The Prime Minister, however, said there is a difference that the anarchists and arsonists, who wear the garb of politicians and attack the symbols of the State do not qualify for a dialogue.

He said they should rather be held to account for their militant actions and this is the prevalent practice even in developed democracies.
