JUI Chief Fazalur Rahman faces the worst blow
ISLAMABAD - The Lahore High Court whilst hearing arguments in a sedition petition filed against Maulana Fazlur Rehman, leader of Jamiat-e-Ulema Islam (JUI-F) today, sought tangible proofs.
The court demanded a transcript of all the speeches deemed seditious by the filer of the petition to be presented as evidence in the court of law.
A formal investigation in the matter would then be kicked off if the evidence is deemed satisfactory.
A civilian who took the matter to court against the political and religious leader claimed that the religious cleric had made speeches against the state and had incited seditious action against it.
Calling the Maulana's speeches firebrand, and capable of plunging the country into anarchy.
