ISLAMABAD: The Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Thursday adjourned hearing into a plea seeking a ban on Pashtun Tahaffuz Movement (PTM) till July 16.
Justice Amir Farooq was hearing the case.
Barrister Shoaib Razaq in his arguments said that PTM is not a registered party and pleaded the court to pass a ruling to slap a ban on it for making anti-state statements.
The social media accounts of the PTM leaders namely Manzoor Pashteen, Mohsin Dawar, Ali Wazir and Gulalai Ismail should be banned, he continued.
No one would be allowed to give seditious statements under the name of freedom of expression, the court observed.
The court has summoned replies from PTM leaders including, Manzoor Pashteen, Mohsin Dawar, Ali Wazir and Gulalai Ismail.
A petition was filed in Islamabad High Court (IHC) against PTM for speaking against national institutions, including Pakistan Army, in the wake of 10-year-old Farishta Mohmand’s rape case in the federal capital.
