November 19, 2019

LAHORE: The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Monday sought a reply from the federal government on a petition challenging Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) Plan-B to stage countrywide protests.

LHC Justice Ameer Bhatti issued notices to the federal government and others on a petition filed by a citizen Irfan Ali. Advocate Nadeem Sarwar, the counsel for the petitioner, submitted that JUI-F chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman was going to launch countrywide protest after his Azadi March against the government. He argued that the party had announced blocking highways and roads in various parts of the country, adding it could paralyse the system. He pleaded the court to take action against the JUI-F leadership.

After hearing the arguments, Justice Bhatti issued notice to the federal government and sought a reply about its plan to deal with the JUI-F protest across the country.
