Sheikh Rashid Ahmed, leader of Awami Muslim League (AML) and a former interior minister, filed a petition with the Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Saturday to stop his move from Islamabad to Karachi.
Sheikh Rasheed claimed that he was referring to the remarks made by PTI chairman Imran Khan, who claimed that PPP co-chairman had plotted his assassination.
His statement had no immediate impact on the complaint, but he encouraged the court to refrain from hearing any other cases based on political utterances.
Additionally, Sheikh Rasheed halts the legal actions brought against him in Aabpara, Murree, and Karachi.
In order to wait for the outcome of this case, he asked the court to halt his relocation to Karachi.
Awami Muslim League (AML) leader and former interior minister Sheikh Rasheed was previously detained by the Mochko police after allegedly using derogatory language towards Pakistan Peoples Party chairman and FM Bilawal Bhutto Zardari.
Sheikh Rasheed, the head of AML, was charged with three offences: 120B (criminal conspiracy), 153A (instigating hostility between groups), and 505. (Statements conducing to public mischief).
PPP divisional president said in the FIR that the AML chief attempted to disparage a former president and put the PPP co-chairman and his family in “permanent danger”
The FIR also stated that Rasheed wants to disturb the peace of the nation with his provocative charges by starting a conflict between PTI and PPP.
PPP leader further mentioned that the AML chairman had allegedly claimed to know crucial details about a “plot” to kill PTI leader.
