LAHORE: A petition has been registered in the Lahore High Court (LHC) against Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam Fazl (JUI-F)’s anti-government protest that will be held in Islamabad.
Advocate Nadeem Sarwar filed the petition against JUI-F Cheif in the high court, stating that Maulana Fazlur Rehman was willing to lodge sit-in in Islamabad to void the process of everyday life.
The petition stated that a government could not be ended before completing its tenure of five years in accordance with the Constitution of Pakistan.
It was also stated in the petition that armed groups have been created by the JUI-F supremo in the name of the security of the protests.
The petitioner inquired the high court to order the authorities to stop Maulana Fazl from organising the sit-ins.
In the same regard previously on 16th October, the Islamabad High Court (IHC) dismissed all the petitions filed against the anti-government protest.
According to IHC, peaceful citizens could not be deprived of their right to protest, but the state may restrain a person from exercising this right on the grounds of national security.
JUI-F chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman on 3rd October announced the “Azadi March” that will begin on 27th October after staging sit-in protest against the government.
