NRO, Lal Masjid operation will be challenged in court: Imran

By Super Admin

Lahore, Mar 17 (ANI): Former cricketer and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan has said the National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO) was against basic human rights and would be challenged in court.

A private TV channel quoted Khan as saying that incidents like May 12 and the Lal Masjid operation would also be challenged in court.

He said Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry had been reinstated through the people's power and would stand by the people.

Khan warned that the nation would not accept any move to curtail the powers of the CJP, the Daily Times reported.

He also said the people had a one-point agenda of restoration of the judiciary, and dispelled the impression that they wanted to destabilise the government.

The NRO was signed between then President Pervez Musharraf in 2007, paving the way for a power-sharing deal with former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto.

Musharraf signed the ordinance giving amnesty to Bhutto and other political leaders -- except exiled former premier Nawaz Sharif -- in all court cases against them. (ANI)
