Lahore High Court (LHC) - File Photo

LAHORE: The Lahore High Court (LHC) has issued notices to Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) and the federal government for the incomplete blocking of the Internet links to the anti-Islam film here on Wednesday, DawnNews reported.

During the hearing, the lawyer representing the applicant, ‘Aalmi Majlis Tahaffuz Khatam-e-Nabuwat’ said while presenting his evidence that PTA has behaved irresponsibly by not completely blocking the internet links to the anti-Islam film.

He requested that the court take action against the responsible officers of the PTA.

Justice Ijaz-ul-Hassan remarked that this issue is sensitive and important. Therefore, if needed, a larger bench would be formed to hear the case.

The court has issued notices to the Federal Government, the Federal Interior Ministry and the Ministry for Foreign Affairs for Oct 5 and ordered them to submit detailed replies to the court by then.

Furthermore, the attorney general has also been summoned to court for the next hearing for judicial assistance.
