IHC reserves verdict on plea seeking ban on airing Nawaz's speeches

IHC reserves verdict on plea seeking ban on airing Nawaz's speeches
October 6, 2020

ISLAMABAD (92 News) - The Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Monday reserved a verdict on a petition seeking ban on airing of former premier Nawaz Sharif’s speeches.

An IHC bench reserved the verdict on the maintainability of the writ petition after an initial hearing, which is likely to be pronounced today.

In the petition, the petitioner stated that Nawaz levelled false allegations against state institutions to defame them.

“The speeches made by Nawaz Sharif can not in any way be termed as fair criticism or within the parameters of the fundamental right of freedom of speech. The fundamental right of speech guaranteed by the Constitution is not an absolute right but is subject to reasonable restrictions,” the petitioner contended.

He demanded that the government ban the broadcast of any such speech or statement of Nawaz.

In the petition, the petitioner cited the PML-N quid, opposition leader Shehbaz Sharif, the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (Pemra) chairman and others as respondents.
