PESHAWAR -Peshawar High Court gives important verdict over JUI - F Chief Fazalur Rehman Azadi March.
Peshawar High Court (PHC) issued directives to the local government on Tuesday asking them to ensure no roads or highways are forcibly shut down for “Azadi March".
The PHC instructed the officials concerned to keep all roads open till the city of Attock and stop those trying to install containers to hinder traffic flow.
The court also remarked that it is the media's responsibility to give both, the government and the opposition equal amount of TV time to highlight their grievances.
The orders further asked the participants of the march to exercise restraint and make sure that the protest remains peaceful.
The court expressed dismay over absence of representation from the attorney general's office to attend court proceedings on the matter.
On October 27, the “Azadi March" kicked off from Karachi under the leadership of JUI-F chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman. The march passed through Hyderabad, Sukkur and other cities of interior Sindh before entering Punjab.
The “Azadi March" reached Multan on Tuesday where JUI-F chief will address the participants.
Meanwhile, the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz and Pakistan Peoples Party have completed arrangements to welcome the “Azadi March" participants.
