*ISLAMABAD: Pashtun Tahafuz Movement (PTM) leader Gulalai Ismail has been placed on blacklist over accusation of anti-state speeches.*

Gulalai Ismail could be arrested if she attempts to leave the country after being placed on blacklist by the authorities following cases against her under the Anti-Terrorism Act (ATA).

Moreover, the Islamabad High Court (IHC) issued notices to Pashtun Tahafuz Movement (PTM) chief Manzoor Pashteen, MNAs Mohsin Dawar and Ali Wazir in a plea seeking a ban on PTM earlier in the day.

Justice Amir Farooq heard the case.

At the outset of the hearing, Barrister Shoaib pleaded the court to pass ruling to ban PTM leaders’ social media accounts and slap ban on the party as it is not registered and involved in creating anti-state sentiments in the country.

To this, the court issued notices to Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA), Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) secretary interior and defence to submit their reply within two weeks in this regard.

The IHC also served notices to Manzoor Pashteen, Mohsin Dawar and Ali Wazir and later adjourned the hearing for two weeks.
