The full bench is comprised Justice Shahid Hameed, Justice Anawar Ul Haq and Justice Qasim Khan.

The march was challenged in LHC with the demand that the court should issue orders to curb the march.

According to reports, the court is likely to take up the petition next week.

The petitioner has expressed concern in the plea that the Raiwind March can lead to a civil war.

Senior lawyer A.K. Dogar filed the application stating that Khan was making hate speeches causing confrontation among various sections of society.

The petitioner-lawyer asked the court to stop the PTI chief from launching this “unconstitutional” activity that may result in clashes between PTI and PML-N workers.
