A district court in Islamabad has reserved its decision on a plea for physical custody of PTI leader Fawad Chaudhry.
Fawad Chaudhry, a senior leader of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), was produced in the court of Superintendent of Police Naveed Khan.
During the hearing, Fawad Chaudhry asked the magistrate to allow me to speak to the family for 5 minutes and the same number of minutes to my lawyers.
The PTI leader said in front of the judge that there are 1500 policemen outside, but still I am handcuffed in the courtroom. I am a Supreme Court lawyer, I have been handcuffed in court.
Election Commission lawyer Saad Hasan read out the text of the case and told Fawad Chaudhry that the state of the Election Commission is like that of a secretary at present. On this, Fawad Chaudhry said that the position of the Election Commission is in shambles.
The lawyer of the Election Commission argued that the Election Commission is a constitutional body, the Election Commission has all the powers to conduct elections, the Election Commission is brought under a well thought out plan. The purpose of Fawad Chaudhry’s speech was to excite everyone, he said that the election commission will reach people’s homes.
The counsel for the Election Commission also said that Fawad Chaudhry wanted to incite hatred against the Election Commission, there was enough electronic material against the accused. I was reading the charges in court and Fawad Chaudhry said, Inshallah and Masha Allah, the accused has accepted whatever he said in the speech.
The lawyer further said that it is not right to take a decision on Fawad Chaudhry, the people behind the speech of the accused should be identified. A campaign is underway behind Fawad Chaudhry’s speech, the police are yet to investigate the statement of the accused.
Fawad Chaudhry told the court that in the case the sedition element was also imposed on me, I was taken in the ranks of Bhagat Singh and Nelson Mandela. The same was said against freedom fighters, I was not giving a speech, I was giving a press conference, my words have been misquoted.
The PTI leader said that there is no case against me, the plaintiff’s lawyer wants to say that criticism is sedition, then democracy will stop, no one can criticize. Can’t criticize anyone. He said that I am the spokesman of Tehreek-e-Insaaf, what I speak about is the policy of my party, what I speak about is not necessarily my personal opinion.
Fawad Chaudhry said that it is a pity that cases are filed against opponents in the country’s politics, sometimes we are at the top and sometimes at the bottom.
Later Naveed Khan reserved the decision of the duty officer on the demand for physical custody.
