Karachi, Mar.14 (ANI): The former Pakistan Prime Minister and PML-N chief, Nawaz Sharif and his brother, sacked Punjab Chief Minister, Shahbaz Sharif may have garnered huge public support against the PPP led government and especially against President Asif Ali Zardari, but their voracious verbal attack on Zardari and continuous call to defy the governments orders has now seen a case filed against them in the Sindh High Court (SHC) on charges of orchestrating a mutiny.
Pakistan Awami Himayat Tehrik leader Maulvi Iqbal Haider has filed a petition against the Sharif brothers for provoking people to disobey official orders.
PML-N leaders were provoking people to disobey official orders, which is similar to treason, therefore a treason case should be registered against them, the petition stated.
The federal secretary interior, Sindh government and Sharif brothers all have been made respondents in the petition, The Nation reports.
After their disqualification by a bench of Supreme Court, both of them had delivered contemptuous speeches and maligned the judges of the superior judiciary. Both Nawaz and Shahbaz exceeded all limits and defamed the entire judicial set up which amounts to sedition, Haider said.
Haider also pleaded the SHC to order the federal interior ministry to take immediate action against the leaders. (ANI)
