ISLAMABAD: The newly reappointed Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting, Fawad Chaudhry, said that no-one can be allowed to challenge the writ of the state. HE further added that the situation has returned to normal after the country-wide protests by the Tehreek-e-Labaik. 

The comments came while he spoke to the media in Rawalpindi on Saturday after visiting injured police officers in the protests. The federal minister had also congratulated the interior ministry, religious affairs ministry and provincial governments for jointly taking action to successfully control the protests and “it was once again firmly established that state writ can’t be challenged”.

“Pakistan’s state is not a weak state at all and no one should make the mistake of misunderstanding this,” he said, adding that Pakistan also had the “biggest defence system and army” in the Muslim world. “So those who wanted to undermine Pakistan should remove that misunderstanding of theirs,” he said.

He further added that in democratic systems there are always different points of views and no one can be allowed to blackmail the government through force. “The situation in all of Pakistan at this time has become normal,” said the minister and further expressed his regret that the social media access had to be restricted for a few hours yesterday. 

Similarly, yesterday the Interior Minister Sheikh Rahseed had expressed his regrets and apologised that the government has to limit social media access for a few hours to control the situation.
