ISLAMABAD: Denouncing the decision of the Supreme Court (SC) to give relief to former premier Imran Khan on corruption charges, the ruling alliance, Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) announced staging a protest in front of the SC building in Islamabad on Monday.
According to reports, this was announced by PDM chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman while talking to the media after the meeting of the alliance under his chairmanship in Islamabad.
In the meeting, self-exiled former premier Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam Nawaz participated via video link.
Maulana Fazl declared the SC’s decision to grant bail to Imran Khan beyond the constitution and the law of the country. He said instead of bringing the criminal to the court of justice, he is being protected.
He categorically stated that they were not ready to accept the decision of 2-3 judges of the SC. He also said that the Supreme Court should be told that she is the ‘Mother of Law’ and not a ‘Mother-in-Law’.
The PDM chief also said that everything has been put at stake for Imran Khan and all reliefs and concessions are being given to him.
He made a complaint that was such concessions given to three-time prime minister Nawaz Sharif and Faryal Talpur. He added that Nawaz Sharif was not even allowed to call to inquire about the health of his sick wife.
Maulana Fazlur Rehman directed all workers to leave every work and reached outside the SC building on Monday. He also appealed to the nation to gather outside the SC against its decisions.
The PDM chief warned that if someone tried to stop them will face a very hard reaction.
