Lahore HC rejects plea to ban Wikileaks

Lahore, Dec 3 (ANI): The Lahore High Court has reportedly dismissed a petition registered by one Arif Gondal seeking a ban on the Wikileaks website, which created a huge controversy because of its release of secret US cables this week.

According to the Dawn, in his petition, Gondal termed the leakage of secret information by the whistleblower website 'WikiLeaks' - a conspiracy to create a rift among Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and other Muslim and Western countries.

However Lahore High Court's Justice Sheikh Azmat Saeed dismissed the petition, calling it non-maintainable.

We must bear the truth, no matter how harmful it is, Justice Saeed said. (ANI)
