Nisar defends permission given to DPC for Islamabad event despite Section 144

Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar on Thursday defended the government’s decision to permit a Difaa-i-Pakistan Council (DPC) gathering in the capital despite imposition of Section 144 in the run-up to the Nov 2 ‘lockdown’.

The interior minister, addressing a police function in Islamabad, said the organisation sought approval from the administration and adhered to conditions specified by the administration before it was permitted to do so.
