Earlier, Advocate Arif Gondal filed a petition in the LHC on Thursday seeking ban on the website. The petitioner maintained that the โ€œdisclosures are aimed at destroying peace in Pakistan and defaming all institutions, like the army, and important personalities.โ€

The apex court dismissed the plea, saying the website was operative in more than 170 countries and could not be blocked in Pakistan.

Justice Azmat Saeed, during the hearing, remarked that one should have the courage tolerate criticism for the sake of national development.

Taking the veil off from the faces of some persons would benefit all, he added.
