Operation postponed for 24 hours:Islamabad protesters refuse to end sit-in

ISLAMABAD -UNS – Federal Interior Ministry on Saturday has directed the local administration to postpone operation against religious parties, who are staging sit-in in Faizabad area, for another 24 hours.

Ultimatum of Islamabad High Court (IHC) given to protesters in the federal capital belonging to Tehreek Labbaik Ya Rasool Allah and Sunni Tehreek has expired at 10:00pm on Friday after which contingents of Pakistan Rangers and Frontier Corps (FC) have been deployed at the sit-in site for operation.

Amid fears of crackdown hundreds of activists and supporters of Tehreek Labaik Ya Rasool Allah continued to occupy the Faizabad Interchange on Saturday despite the Islamabad High Court (IHC) order and the Interior Minister’s final warning for calling off their protest.

The protesters have blocked the Faizabad Interchange, which connects Rawalpindi and Islamabad, multiplying hardships of the people of the twin cities.
