PESHAWAR: The Peshawar High Court (PHC) has set aside the order of deputy commissioner of North Waziristan tribal district over banning the entry of the Pakhtun Tahaffuz Movement (PTM) leader Mohsin Dawar in the district.

The deputy commissioner had banned the entry of Mohsin Dawar in North Waziristan few days ago through an order. A letter issued from the deputy commissioner’s office stated that the ban was imposed under Section 5 of Maintenance of Public Order against disturbing peace and instigating people against the state and its institutions. The letter said Mohsin Dawar was instigating the people through provocative speeches against the state and its institutions.

The PHC in its short order on the petition of Mohsin Dawar on Thursday set aside the order of the deputy commissioner of North Waziristan.

Mohsin Dawar hailed the PHC decision in a message on the social media.

“The order of banning my entry into North Waziristan by Deputy Commissioner/political agent North Waziristan has been set aside by d Peshawar High Court. I am extremely thankful to our mentor & the living legend Lateef Afridi Lala for his legal and moral support. God bless you Lala,” he said.
