LAHORE (Dunya News) – Lahore High Court (LHC) will hear the petition against sit-in of Pakistan Awami Tehreek’s (PAT) women wing on Mall Road in Lahore today (Wednesday).

A petition was filed in LHC by advocate Asad Manzoor Butt on the behalf of Mall Road Traders Association (MRTA) to stop PAT Chief Tahir-ul-Qadri from arranging sit-in on Mall Road. The plaintiff said that a protest on Mall Road will badly affect business activities.

On the other hand, PAT has made all the arrangements for the sit-in despite court’s restraining order.

It is to be mentioned here that the high court had already banned protests and processions on Mall Road and the provincial government had also imposed section 144.

PAT had earlier announced to carry out sit-in against the injustice in Model Town massacre at the core of the city on August 16. They demand justice over the Punjab police operation at Minhaj-ul-Quran office which not only injured several people but also damaged property and resulted in the loss of over a dozen lives.
