The Islamabad High Court lifted the ban on broadcasting Imran Khan’s live speech

The Islamabad High Court has lifted the ban on broadcasting Imran Khan’s live speech.

On Monday, Chief Justice of Islamabad High Court Athar Minullah ordered to lift the ban while hearing the petition filed by Tehreek-e-Insaaf.

On August 20, Imran Khan addressed senior police officers of Islamabad and Additional Sessions Judge Zeba Chaudhry in a speech and said, “Get ready, we will take action against you too.”

Addressing a public gathering at F-nine Park Islamabad, Imran Khan said, “Shehbaz Gul was picked up as if he were a big traitor, IG, DIG of Islamabad, we will not leave you.” We will file a case against you.

Addressing the lady magistrate, Imran Khan further said, “You knew that he (Shahbaz Gill) had been wronged and yet you did not grant him bail.”

Magistrate Ziba, you also get ready, we will take action against you too.

After this speech, Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) issued a statement late on Saturday night in which it directed all TV channels not to telecast Imran Khan’s live speech and address, however the recorded speech of Imran Khan. Can be broadcast.

The statement further said that Imran Khan’s speech has been banned under Section 27 of the PEMRA Ordinance 2002.

Imran Khan’s recorded speech can be shown only under the time delay mechanism to enable monitoring and editorial control of these speeches as per PEMRA rules.

Meanwhile, a case was also registered against Imran Khan under anti-terrorism laws for threatening police officers and a female judge. In this case, Imran Khan has also been granted bail till September 1.

The ban on live broadcast of former Prime Minister Imran Khan’s speeches was challenged by PTI in the Islamabad High Court.

Shaukat Tarin’s leaked audio, war of words between government and PTI

Finance Minister Miftah Ismail has criticized former Pakistan Finance Minister Shaukat Tareen, who belongs to Tehreek-e-Insaf, after the audio of his conversation with the finance ministers of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Punjab was leaked.

On Monday, Pakistan’s private TV channels aired the audio tapes of the conversation, while Tehreek-e-Insaf leaders called the phone recording illegal but defended the conversation.

Describing the audio as a conspiracy against the country, he said, “You have crossed all the limits and have committed a depraved act.”

He also said that the question that Mohsin Laghari asked Shaukat Tareen in the audio regarding the ‘loss of the state’ should be asked by PTI to its leadership as well.

Finance Minister Miftah Ismail reacted strongly to the audio (Photo: Twitter).

PTI leaders’ defense of audio

Tehreek-e-Insaf leader Asad Umar said in a press conference in Islamabad that “there is nothing in the audio call of Shaukat Tareen that is being raised”. He is telling the finance ministers in the call that you guys should tell the federal government to demand from the IMF that it is not a normal situation due to floods, so give concession. Isn’t that a good suggestion?’

He said that “Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif is asking for help from the whole world, so we should ask the IMF to give enough space for flood expenses so that we can use our own money.”

Asad Umar said that Shaukat Tareen’s audio was cut and pasted. They have been doing cut-paste work in audio before.

Shireen Mazari said that there is nothing illegal or wrong in the conversation heard in the audio (file photo).

Tehreek-e-Insaf leader Shireen Mazari also confirmed this audio call in one of her tweets and wrote that the audio call of Tareen and the provincial finance ministers was leaked. There is nothing illegal or wrong in the conversation. We have publicly opposed the terms under which the imported government is borrowing from the IMF. But wiretapping conversations without a court order is illegal.

Shaukat Tareen can be heard saying to Punjab Finance Minister Mohsin Leghari that ‘the commitment given to the IMF of 750 billion, now you have to say that the commitment we gave was before the flood. Because we will have to spend a lot of money. Now we will not be able to fulfill this commitment.

In the call, Shaukat Tareen is pressuring the finance ministers of Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa to sabotage the IMF deal (Photo: AFP).

Mohsin Leghari asks Shaukat Tareen that ‘there will be no harm to the state by doing this?’

In response to which Shaukat Tarin says after a little hesitation that ‘the loss will be obvious but the state is also suffering from what they are doing with your chairman (Imran Khan)’.

Stating the reasons, Shaukat says that the federal government is making terrorism cases against us. We will make such a scene that it is not seen that we are harming the state.

In the second audio tape, Shaukat Tareen is giving similar instructions to Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Finance Minister Taimur Zafar Jhagra that the excuse of floods should be placed first in the letter. On which Taimur Zafar Jhagra says that this is a blackmailing strategy, I will not leave a single rupee.

Shaukat Tareen says that ‘write the letter first and then we can hold a press conference as well.’

According to Asad Umar, ‘there is nothing in Shaukat Tareen’s audio call that is being made noise’ (Photo: APP)

It should be remembered that the final meeting of the IMF to release one billion dollars of funds to Pakistan is also being held on Monday. The government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa has informed the federal government that it will not bear the financial burden on the province as a result of this deal, but no such announcement has been made officially by the Punjab government.

Shaukat Tareen can also be heard saying in these audio tapes that the only option left to the federal government when the provinces refuse is to come up with another mini-budget and increase taxes further.

Pakistan flood victims pleading for help

Hundreds of people are stranded across the river in the Manoor valley of Pakistan’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province after a flash flood hit the region on Friday, destroying at least 10 bridges and dozens of buildings.

“We need supplies, we need medicine and please rebuild the bridge, we are left with nothing now.” Those are the contents of a handwritten note villagers throw to our team when we visit.

The Manoor valley is located in the mountains of Kaghan – a famous tourist destination in Pakistan. The valley has been hit by a torrential flood that killed at least 15 people, including women and children.

Flash floods swept away the only concrete bridge connecting the scenic valley to the main city. Since then, all the villages on the other side of the river have been cut off and residents are waiting for help.

The BBC team reached the valley after a dangerous one-hour drive along a road that was damaged at many points by the flooding and landslides.

In Manoor, two bridges have completely collapsed and a temporary wooden crossing has been erected. Here, we meet a woman sitting with her belongings. She tells the BBC she can see her home but is unable to reach it.

“My home and my children are on the other side of the river. I’ve been waiting here for two days now thinking the government might come and repair the bridge. But authorities are telling us that we should start walking around the other side of the mountain to reach our homes. But that’s a hike of eight to 10 hours. I am an old woman. How can I walk this much?”

She waits for a few more minutes and leaves when the rain starts again and water flowing underneath the temporary wooden bridge begins to swell up.

We see men, women and children sitting outside their mud houses on the other side of the river. They wave at us thinking we are government officials.

It is then that some of them throw us a piece of paper, packing it into a plastic bag filled with stones in order to throw it to the side of the river where we are filming. This is the only way they can communicate with the other part of the village these days. Mobile networks do not operate here.

The handwritten letter carries information about the losses they are coping with and also requests supplies and medicine for the stranded villagers.

“Many people are sick and can’t leave the village on foot. Kindly get the bridge built, it’s the main connection with the city,” the letter says.

 

“We need supplies. We need a road,” Abdul Rasheed, 60, tells us while speaking of his ordeal. He has lost his wagon to the flood – his only means of earning money to feed his family.

“There are many other people who have lost their property and means of income,” he says. “They need help. They need food. There was a small market here which was swept away. Shops had all the food and supplies.

“My home is on the other side and now I’ll have to walk for eight hours to reach my home. How can I do that in such an old age?” he asks.

Many shops and hotels have been destroyed here. Soheil and his brother have lost their mobile phone repair shop to the flood.

He tells the BBC he has three families to feed and is uncertain about his future now. “I don’t know what to do. No one has come here to help us as we deserve. Every shopkeeper here is worried. They are all poor people who have big families to feed,” he says.

The inside of a restaurant damaged by the floods

“These authorities and politicians come here for photo sessions and fun. They come, take photos and leave. No one is helping us.”

 

But the deputy commissioner of the district tells the BBC a comprehensive rescue and relief operation was carried out immediately in the area and all the hotels have been evacuated. He adds that an assessment has already been made about property damages.

“We have completed the assessment and flood victims will be compensated soon,” he states. “Work has already started regarding reconstruction of the bridge, but it will take some time.”

While the government blames climate change for the flooding, communities are criticising government and local authorities for allowing builders to construct hotels on the banks of the river.

“These hotels and markets blocked the natural waterways, and so we are witnessing much bigger losses due to the floods which could have been avoided easily,” says another resident in the main market of Kaghan.

Many hotels are built on the banks of the River Kunhar in Kaghan and the adjacent valleys. Floods have destroyed some of them, along with a police station and a religious school.

A few hundred metres from the police station, a family sits in a temporary tent right on the river’s bank. They say eight members of their family were washed away by the same flood.

Heavy rains and floods are wreaking havoc across Pakistan.

More than 1,000 people have been killed while millions have been displaced. Officials say at least 700,000 homes have been destroyed.

With millions waiting for food, drinking water and shelter, rescue teams are struggling to reach these cut-off communities. Provinces like Sindh and Balochistan are the worst affected but mountainous regions in Khyber Pakhtunkha are also badly hit.

Pakistani troops have also been called in to assist aid agencies in reaching the flood-affected areas as road links have been damaged and the only way to reach most communities is with helicopters.

Pakistan’s government is also appealing to friendly countries, donors and international financial institutions to assist them in coping with the calamity.
