ISLAMABAD: The Islamabad High Court (IHC) has allowed the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) to set up a screen for a rally at Fatima Jinnah Park (F-9 Park) located in the federal capital.
According to the details, a hearing was held in the Islamabad High Court on the request of PTI heard by Chief Justice (CJ) Athar Minallah. The Chief Justice remarked that the court hoped that the fundamental rights of the people would not be affected.
PTI Islamabad President Ali Nawaz Awan had named Interior Ministry, Deputy Commissioner and IG Islamabad as parties in the petition filed in the Islamabad High Court. The petition requested that the Lahore rally be allowed to be shown on the screen in the park and live broadcast be allowed on the big screen of the rally in Lahore.
Additional Deputy Commissioner (DC) Rana Waqas appeared in the court on behalf of the district administration. The court asked, “If they are protesting peacefully, what is the problem?”
The Additional DC said that the request for PTI has been received for 4 to 6 weeks, therefore permission cannot be granted. Talking to PTI lawyers, he said that on the day of protest, the district administration would have to submit an application.
The IHC directed the district administration to allow the PTI to hold the meeting, to which the Rana Waqas said that there was a request that it would be better for the PTI to file a fresh application.
The court dealt with the PTI’s request directing the administration to allow the meeting, the chief justice remarked, adding that the court hoped that the basic rights of the people would not be affected.
