Mobile Service to Remain Suspended In Lahore, Twin Cities and Gujranwala

Mobile phone services, including the wireless data services, will remain suspended in Lahore, Islamabad, Rawalpindi and Gujranwala, starting from 8AM on Friday till 7PM in the evening.

This was revealed by Mr. Fawad Chaudhry, the Information Minister in a tweet he shared a while ago;

Decision is taken at a time when protestors have given a country wide call for strike on Friday, November the second, 2018.

Not to be mentioned, mobile services were already blocked in parts of Lahore and Rawalpindi, Islamabad for at least 36 hours.

For instance there is no cellular coverage in a circumference of 5 kilometers around Faizabad, Rawalpindi – a strategic location where protestors are likely to reach for a sit-in on Friday after the acquittal of Asma Bibi.

The stretch of cellular suspension could expand, depending on the law and order situation in other parts of the country.

Prime Minister Imran Khan had warned the protestors to not to take the law in hands or the state would react.

Negotiations between the protestors and the government, that started late Thursday, remained unsuccessful and reportedly the federal and provincial governments are prepping to take on the protestors to get the situation back to normalcy.

        Ahan as far as i can say he used to say protest is a beauty of democracy and everyone has a right?

          There is a very clear difference between protest and fasaad my friend. However, I agree that suspending cellular services is not a good step and definitely not helpful one.

            First read out the verdict and then let me know why they exactly did that?

          This is what he’s saying. You can protest peacefully.
          But if you see the channels, Gullu Butts everywhere burning things up.

          I am pretty sure opposition parties have decided to spread this in the country to de-stabilize it. Mind you, do I even need to mention the original Gullu Butt incident? They started to burn property and break car windows EXACTLY like it was being done in current situation a few days ago. It’s preplanned anarchy.
