The Case Hearing in Lahore High Court Seeking Damages for Destruction of Property in Protests

0 96

The petition seeking damages for the devastation of public property during protests led by the far-right Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) was fixed in Lahore High Court for hearing on Monday.

Tomorrow the case will be heard by Justice Aatir Mehmood.

The Protests broke out across the country after the Supreme Court on October 30th 2018 acquitted Asia Bibi, a Christian woman penalized to death on blasphemy charges in 2010.

Pakistanis welcomed an uncertain return to routine on Saturday following a settlement between the TLP and the Government after three days of fierce protests disappointed numerous cities and strangulated economic activity.

On Friday, a citizen submitted an appeal in which he stated that the TLP protests caused large damage to public and private property.

The petition stated that the fortification of the lives and wealth of citizens is the first obligation of the Government and auditioned that not doing so had been a defilement of citizens’ essential rights.

It asked the court to direct the Government of Punjab to compensate for all harm caused to citizens.

Distinctly, four, First Information Reports (FIR) have been registered in Islamabad against multitude violence in the capital city.

The FIRs were registered against more than a hundred people; of whom twenty are the members of religio-political parties.
