JUI-F officially applies for permission to hold ‘Azadi March’
ISLAMABAD: The Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) formally applied for permission to hold their ‘Azadi March’ on Tuesday.
The party’s chief, Maulana Fazlur Rehman, has announced a protest march against the government which will culminate with a sit-in protest on October 27.
The maulana has warned the government that the march would end with its fall.
JUI-F leader Maulana Abdul Ghafoor Haideri submitted an application with the chief commission of Islamabad through his counsel Kamran Murtaza.
“The JUI-F wants permission to hold the Azadi March on October 27, 2019, at D-Chowk in Islamabad,” read the application.
A copy of the application was shared by The Express Tribune in its article.
A few days ago, the Islamabad High Court (IHC) had stated that no organisation can hold a protest sit-in without the permission of the city’s administration. The IHC was hearing a petition filed against the JUI-F for conducting its sit-in.
In his press conference from a few days ago, Fazl had urged the city’s authorities to ensure foolproof security arrangements as he said that thousands of people from all walks of life would partake in the march.
