The Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Thursday ordered the capital administration not to place any containers or block roads during the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI)’s scheduled “lockdown” of Islamabad on November 2. Justice Shaukat Aziz Siddiqui, while hearing the case, directed the capital city administration to ensure smooth running of daily business in Islamabad on Nov 2.The administration should ensure that hospital, schools and markets remain open on the day and no containers are placed to block roads, the court said.”We will not let rights of citizens be violated,” Justice Siddiqui remarked.He asked the administration to inform the PTI about the restriction of holding protests in democracy (parade) ground.The court directed government authorities to follow the legal course in case the protest is held anywhere in the capital other than the designated spot called “Democracy Park and Speech Corner”.The space was designated by the Capital Development Authority (CDA) in 2014 for political activities such as sit-ins and protests.
