  • PML-N leader Muhammad Ali named 11 in attempted murder case.
  • House attacked, fired upon with intent to kill, says the FIR.
  • Wajaht, Moosa already booked in a terrorism case. 

Pakistan Muslim League Quaid (PML-Q) leaders Chaudhry Wajahat Hussain and his son Moosa Elahi have been named along with nine others in an attempted murder case by a Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) leader Muhammad Ali.

The case against the PML-Q leaders was filed at the Karianwala police station of Gujrat.

In the FIR, plaintiff Muhammad Ali accused 11 people including Chaudhary Wajahat and Moosa Elahi of attacking and firing at his house in an attempt to murder him on January 23.

The PML-Q leaders are already booked under terrorism charges after an audio leak allegedly plotting to kidnap a woman lawmaker.

In the audio the duo could be heard planning to threaten the lawmakers, forcing them to go underground. The complainant said that following the audio leak, Moosa and Wajahat appeared in Kotla Arab Ali Khan with nearly 25 armed men and terrorised residents at gunpoint.

In the complaint, it was alleged that the armed men allegedly thrashed many locals and threatened elders of the area with kidnapping and killing them. They allegedly opened fire on the elders and then fled.

It is to be noted that after the emergence of apparent differences within the party ranks the PML-Q’s general council removed Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain as the party chief and replaced him with Chaudhry Wajahat Hussain. 

Rally against a police raid on Elahi’s residence

Muslim League-Q supporters staged a rally against a raid at Parvez Elahi’s house in Gujrat on Wednesday.

The Punjab Police raided former Punjab chief minister Parvez Elahi’s Gujrat residence to arrest Chaudhry Wajahat Hussain on February 1.

The rally, taken out from Muslim League House to Press Club on Davis Road, was led by PML-Q Punjab President Khadija Umar Farooqui.

Umar termed the raid an incident of political victimisation, urging the Supreme Court to take notice of the ‘attack.’

The PML-N session, which was planned for today and involved the party’s leaders, has been postponed. This decision was made as party president Nawaz Sharif engaged in extensive discussions with Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif and CM Maryam Nawaz on the issue, according to sources.

Consultations were also attended by Deputy Prime Minister Ishaq Dar. According to sources, the group extensively deliberated on all facets of the highest court’s ruling regarding reserved seats.

The party leaders’ scheduled consultation session for today has been postponed due to Muharram.

Nawaz Sharif has personally engaged in consultations with party leaders, conducting meetings with certain individuals and maintaining telephonic communication with others to deliberate on different possibilities about the situation.

PML-N leaders have voiced their concerns with the ruling and have called for a parliamentary response.

According to party insiders, a consultative conference of the PML-N will be called in Lahore in the near future.

According to sources, Shehbaz Sharif would provide a detailed explanation of the future plan to the People’s Party and other partners of his government.

The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) achieved a significant legal triumph as the Supreme Court of Pakistan reversed the decision to deny reserved seats to the PTI-supported Sunni Ittehad Council.

The Supreme Court issued a divided ruling with an 8-5 split on a petition filed by the Sunni Ittehad Council (SIC) about the allotment of special seats.

In the Sunni Ittehad Council (SIC) reserved seat dispute, the government would respect the majority ruling of the Supreme Court, according to PMLN senior leader and advisor on political affairs Rana Sanaullah Khan.

He stated that after examining the decision, the government’s legal team would react appropriately. According to Rana Sanaullah, the legal team would determine whether or not to submit a review petition.

“SIC petitions were rejected but PTI was given that relief which was neither asked in the petition nor contest during the proceeding,” asserted Rana Sanaullah in response to the ruling.

He argued that because parties established administrations with a simple majority, the PMLN-led unity movement did not have a two-thirds majority.

According to Rana Sanaullah, PTI should challenge election tribunal rulings, with the government carrying out the rulings.

According to sources, PTI officials convened with imprisoned party founder Imran Khan on Thursday to make a decision over Marwat.

The party authorities alleged that Sher Afzal Marwat had been consistently breaching party discipline over the past month.

“In the meeting with Imran Khan, it was mutually agreed that no leader holds a superior position within the party, and any other leaders who deviate from the party’s stance will face similar consequences,” they stated.

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf has recently issued a show-cause notice to Sher Afzal Marwat due to his irresponsible utterances.

The notice, issued by PTI Secretary General Omar Ayub Khan, requires Marwat to provide an explanation for his utterances within a three-day period. These statements have been considered harmful to the party’s reputation.

The notification declares that making such utterances goes against the party’s code of conduct and contravenes the explicit directives of the party’s founder, Imran Khan, who has underscored the significance of accountable conduct.

Marwat was cautioned that if they fail to react or offer a satisfactory explanation, it could result in additional disciplinary measures.
