Plea for treason case against ‘Move on Pakistan’ proponents filed in SC

Islamabad—Plea urging for action against those inciting Pakistan Army through banners and flexes in different cities to topple democratic government has been filed in the Supreme Court on Friday. The plea urges the court to pursue a treason case against the alleged endorsers of a coup. Former president of Pakistan Federal Union of Journalists, Afzal Butt has filed the plea that holds Move On campaign leader, chief of Awami Muslim League, Sheikh Rashid Ahmed, television anchorperson Dr Danish and government as parties.
The plea states that the army has sworn to not take over the country and sabotage the democratic establishment and inciting Chief of Army Staff, General Raheel Sharif to seize the Parliament is synonymous to treason.
Those who are provoking anti-democratic and pro-coup sentiments are not true patriots, the plea states.
The Supreme Court has been urged by Afzal Butt to take action against the alleged culprits under Article 6 of the Constitution.—APP
