PTI to Move High Courts over Harassment of its Social Media Activists: Asad Umar

Azhar Mashwani, the former focal person for digital media in Punjab said that the Islamabad High court has removed the PECA ordinance last week which also means that what FIA is doing is illegal. He further asked the party leadership to take this matter to the courts.

The PTI-affiliated Insaf Lawyers Forum also called on party chairman Imran Khan to express their deep concerns over the harassment of PTI social media workers.

Not only this but the home of Dr Arslan Khalid, Khan’s focal person on digital media, was raided in Lahore by 11 unidentified men on Sunday. PTI leader Dr Shahbaz Gill had said that the raid was expected and so Dr Khalid was sent somewhere else.

Similarly, the armed forces have come under criticism this week on social media forums. Twitter trends against the military and its leadership have seen intense activity.

Army chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa also chaired a formation commanders conference yesterday to take note of the recent criticism directed at the institution on social media. The ISPR statement said

“National security of Pakistan is sacrosanct. Pakistan Army has always stood by the state institutions to guard it and always will, without any compromise”.
