MANSEHRA – In an FIR filed against Jamiat Ulema-eIslam-Fazl (JUI-F) leader Mufti Kifayatullah, the Anti-Terrorism Court in Hazara has struck down various sections of the 1997 Anti-Terrorism Act.

Yasir Huda Swati, Kifayatullah’s counsel, said on Wednesday that “the court in its judgment dismissed the anti-terrorist section that included my client in the FIR and declared that they are against the right to freedom of speech as stated in the country’s constitution”.

He said that the Hazara Anti-Terrorism Court judge, Mr. Sajjad Ahmad Jan, after listening to the counsel of both parties, transferred the case to the district and judge in Mansehra for further proceedings of the case registered by the government on December 31, 2020, at. Baffa police station.

“He will now appear before the District and Sessions Judge on January 30,” Swati said, adding that ATC sections 6 (7) and 11(X) 2(3) have been deleted from the FIR.
