The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) sent letters on Wednesday to special representatives of the United Nations against the alleged abuse of the blasphemy law by the coalition government against the leadership of PTI.
The letters were written by the ex-federal minister of human rights, Shireen Mazari.
In correspondence to the UN rapporteurs on freedom of belief and freedom of expression as well as the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, said that the state is using religion cards against its political opponents.
The unpopular government wants the continuation of its rule through fascist acts with the sole aim of pushing the country into anarchy, said Mazari.
The PTI decided to write the letters after the launch of over 150 FIRs across Pakistan against the PTI leadership. The cases were registered in accordance with Articles 295-A and 295-B of the Pakistan Criminal Code. These sections speak of blasphemy and the attack on religious sentiments.
On Monday, the Islamabad High Court ordered authorities not to nab PTI leader and ex-SAPM Shehbaz Gill after his return from the US. It also called on the police to take no action against former interior minister Sheikh Rashid until the next hearing on 9 May.
The court heard on Sunday an application filed by Pakistan Tehreek-e-insaaf (PTI) challenging the FIR registration against its leadership regarding the Masjid-e-nabwi incident.
