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

Ms. Maryam in her address had said: "The SC judges had asked Imran Khan (cricketer-turned-politician and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chairman) to file a petition so that they could oust Nawaz Sharif as he (Khan) had failed to make that happen through protest movement".

The Lahore High Court on Monday temporarily barred TV channels from airing alleged "anti-judiciary speeches" delivered by PML-N supreme leader Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maryam Nawaz, Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi and other 14 PML-N leaders.

Earlier in the day, Nawaz had asserted that uncivilised restrictions could not be placed on anyone in the country. She said in Pakistan vote bank belonged to PML-N.

The bench referred the petitions to the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (Pemra) and gave it 15 days to remove anti-judiciary content as well as decide the complaints pending with it regarding the alleged contemptuous speeches.

Talking to reporters outside the accountability court conducting corruption proceedings against the Sharif family, Nawaz said, "We can not restrict someone from speaking".


He went on to add that he had time and again stressed the importance of respecting the Constitution, law and people's mandate.

"I see widespread discord if the people's aspirations are not adhered to", he said further.

Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif pictured with his daughter Maryam Nawaz outside an accountability court in Islamabad. "In case of a live transmission, no one can predict what a speaker is going to say".

Sharif said his opponents may be happy over his disqualification but past nine months had seriously damaged the process of development in the country. He stressed the importance of overcoming the challenge.
