LHC accepts treason case against Rizvi, Fazl for hearing


LAHORE: The Lahore High Court Friday accepted petition for hearing to initiate treason proceedings against Tehreek-i-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) chief Khadim Hussain Rizvi and the chief of the Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam-Fazl, Maulana Fazlur Rehman, for issuing anti-state statements.
The petition was filed by advocate Syed Mohammad on behalf of Shabeerullah, which was heard by Justice Ali Baqar Najafi. The court would take up the petition for hearing on Monday.
The petitioner has argued that Rizvi and Rehman criticised the apex court’s judgement in the Aisa Bibi case, issued anti-state and anti-military statements and incited people to violence and should thus be prosecuted under the law.
