Court didn't bar Nawaz, Maryam from making speeches, explains CJP

Lahore HC bans airing anti-judiciary speeches of ex-PM Nawaz Sharif

The Attorney General read out the LHC verdict in the courtroom, saying it had directed the Pemra to stop news channels from airing speeches against the judiciary and judges. Justice Mazahir Ali Naqvi, who headed a three-judge bench, said the court would monitor the regulatory body's actions in the next two weeks.

Representing the regulator, Advocate Salman Akram Raja argued that the petitioners were raising unnecessary objections against the regulatory body's authority, which was taking steps to decide all the complaints on the matter.

Disqualified premier Nawaz Sharif on Tuesday stressed the need for respecting the "sanctity of vote" as it was linked to security, prosperity and development of the country.

The ousted premier said Pakistan belonged to everyone equally and every citizen had the same rights.

PML-N President and Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif called on his elder brother and party Quaid Nawaz Sharif at Jattiumra yesterday.

Multiple petitions have been filed in different courts against them over alleged contempt of court.

"Meanwhile in a statement, the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Maryam Nawaz said 25 years had passed since Nawaz Sharif delivered a historic speech in which his words "I will never take the dictation" changed the political history as well as social behaviors".

"Elected governments made historic decisions, including the atomic tests which were completely conducted by the civilian government", claimed Nawaz.

The former PM was addressing a "Vote Ko Izzat Do" seminar in Islamabad on Monday.
