Police Expenses Exceeds Twelve Crore Due To Faizabad Protest!
Three things which are important for any protest are Time, Manner and Place. As they matters a lot for any protest Faizabad Protest is at wrong place but that is there legal right to challenge unjust Law that’s what it is said. Daily life in Islamabad has been damaged for approximately two weeks by protesters belonging to religious parties including the Tehreek-i-Khatm-i-Nabuwwat, Tehreek-i-Labaik Ya Rasool Allah (TLY) and the Sunni Tehreek Pakistan (ST) who are calling for the dismissal of Law Minister Zahid Hamid and strict action against those behind the amendment to the Khatm-i-Nabuwwat oath in the Elections Act 2017. The amendment had earlier been deemed a clerical error and has already been rectified. The parties are highly hurt from the amendment and want to protest for their religious right.
The protesters had occupied the Faizabad Bridge which connects Rawalpindi and Islamabad through the Islamabad Expressway and Murree Road, both of which are the busiest roads in the twin cities and if we better understand the importance of Faizabad Bridge it’s like Shahra-e-Faisal in Karachi. The deadline for ending the protest is now till Nov 23, Iqbal said, addressing a press conference after a court hearing on the matter today.
Interior Minister, Ahsan Iqbal on Monday announced an extension granted by the Islamabad High Court (IHC) in the deadline for religious parties to end their sit-in at Islamabad’s Faizabad Interchange. Police expenses crossed over 12 crore if this protest continues the expenses can reach higher.
According to the Sources: “Police officers are constantly highlighting issues they are facing regarding their job to their high officials, moreover Islamabad Police is still not paid even a single Rupee uptill now from Finance Ministry.”
