Chief Justice of Pakistan, Qazi Faez Isa, stated that if the court’s verdict on the 2017 sit-in by the Tehreek-i-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) at Islamabad’s Faizabad had been implemented, future serious incidents could have been prevented. During a hearing, various parties, including the defence ministry, PTI, and Ijazul Haq, withdrew their pleas challenging the court’s original verdict. The Attorney-General for Pakistan assured the court that the decisions of the Faizabad judgement would be implemented. The original judgement had called for penalties against personnel who violated their oath and advocated hate, extremism, and terrorism to be prosecuted. Criticism was also directed towards government departments for causing inconvenience to the public during the sit-in. Various parties filed review petitions against the verdict, but some have now withdrawn their pleas. The court has adjourned the hearing until November 1 and has requested written responses from the remaining respondents. The Chief Justice expressed surprise at the withdrawal of the pleas and questioned the reasons behind it. The court will keep the withdrawal pleas pending and urged those who wish to say anything to submit it in writing. The Chief Justice also highlighted the importance of protecting fundamental rights for the development of the country.
