Civil Disobedience Challenged

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan’s announcement to launch movement of civil disobedience against the government has been challenged in the Lahore High Court (LHC) Monday, news reported.

In his application, the petitioner stated that Khan has taken an unconstitutional step by announcing the disobedience. He prayed to the court to take action against the PTI chief.

On Sunday, Khan called on thousands of protesters rallying in Islamabad to launch a civil disobedience movement against the government, as Dr. Tahirul Qadri declared that only a “revolution” would bring about change.

Addressing the protesters he had led to the capital from Lahore, Khan appealed to the people to stop paying utility bills and taxes to the current government, accusing Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif of plundering national wealth to furnish his business empire.

“I am giving a two-day deadline to the government,” he said, without expanding on the nature of the deadline.

Khan added that after two days he would not be able to stop his workers from marching on the prime minister’s house in the “Red Zone”, where government buildings and embassies are located.
