Sh Rashid threatens to tear Sect 144 into 144 pieces

Staff Reporter

Rawalpindi—In response to Islamabad administrator’s decision to ban public rallies and protests in the capital, Awami Muslim League (AML) chief Sheikh Rashid said he would “tear Section 144 into 144 pieces tomorrow.” Reiterating Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan’s words, Rashid said, “Rawalpindi will be closed down on November 2, no matter what. “From Chandi Chowk till Islamabad, people will come out on the streets,” the AML chief told reporters on Thursday. Congratulating Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif in a rather sarcastic tone, Rashid said, “You have started the game, but now we will be the ones to end it for you.” Challenging Islamabad High Court’s orders, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan on Thursday announced that the Islamabad protest scheduled for November 2 will be held at any cost. Addressing the media in Islamabad, the party chief said, “It is my legal and constitutional right to hold a peaceful protest and I will exercise that right.”
