Review Petition Withdrawn by Pemra in Faizabad Sit-In Verdict Case

Faizabad Sit-In Verdict Case

ISLAMABAD: On Wednesday, the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) submitted a petition to the Supreme Court, stating its intent to withdraw the review petition challenging the ruling in the Faizabad sit-in case.

PEMRA has filed a petition with the Supreme Court, stating its intention to no longer pursue the lawsuit.

The change in PEMRA’s stance comes a day after the Intelligence Bureau (IB) informed the Supreme Court of its decision to withdraw a plea requesting a reconsideration of the court’s 2019 decision regarding the Tehreek-i-Labbaik Pakis¬≠tan (TLP) sit-in in Faizabad, Islamabad.

Just two days before the review petitions were scheduled to be heard by a three-member bench led by Chief Justice Qazi Faez Isa and comprising Justice Amin-Uddin Khan and Justice Athar, PEMRA submitted its plea.

Verdict of Faizabad

On February 6, 2019, the Supreme Court (SC) issued a written verdict ordering action against extremist elements in the Suo-moto case related to Tehreek-e-Labbaik’s (TLP) 2017 Faizabad sit-in.

In addition, the Tehreek-i-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) conducted a weeks-long protest at Islamabad’s Faizabad Interchange in November 2017 in response to a minor change in the oath taken by lawmakers. The court took Suo moto notice shortly after the protests.

The National Assembly had amended the Finality of Prophet-hood (Khatm-e-Nabuwwat) oath for electoral candidates, leading to protests from religious groups in the country. The government had subsequently revoked the amendment, which had triggered widespread controversy.
