LAHORE: The Supreme Court (SC) has been moved against Lahore High Court orders banning Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain’s broadcast of speeches and statements.

Asma Jahangir, counsel for Altaf Hussain took the plea in the petition that LHC’s order is unjust and unreasonable as the verdict was given without hearing the counsels. The petition also states that the verdict came on a non-maintainable plea.

The petition further states that the ban on broadcast of speeches and pictures is against Article 19.
