IHC hears petition against JUI-F’s Azadi March


ISLAMABAD (DNA) – Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Wednesday has conducted hearing on the petition filed against Azadi March of Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F).

During the hearing, Chief Justice remarked that no court can abolish right of protest.

Earlier, an application was also filed by advocate Hanif Rahi against the participation of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) in Azadi March. Interior secretary, JUI-F chief, PML-N and Deputy Commissioner Islamabad were made parties in the plea.

The application to IHC stated that PML-N leaders are facing National Accountability Bureau (NAB) cases and ex-prime minister Nawaz Sharif had written a letter to PML-N senior leadership from Kot Lakhpat Jail which is tantamount to pressurize the anti-corruption watchdog.

The application further added that Supreme Court and IHC had already given a verdict regarding holding of sit in on specific places.
