Byline: ANI

Karachi, Mar. 28 (ANI): A constitutional petition has been filed in Sindh High Court challenging the alleged meddling of US diplomats in Pakistan's internal affairs during the political crisis in the country.

In his petition, local lawyer Sohail Hameed claimed that after the invading Iraq and Afghanistan, the US government was now meddling in the internal affairs of Pakistan by using indirect methods.

The US is trying to control political parties through their influence, forcing the government of the day to enter into a compromise on the terms dictated by the opposition, he alleged.

He stressed that as per the Constitution of Pakistan, the government is bound to defend the territorial integrity of Pakistan and ensure independent governance as per Islamic ideology.

The petitioner stated that a series of meetings by US diplomats in Pakistan, are aimed at fanning political turmoil.

The petitioner has sought a court direction to the respondents, which includes the president of Pakistan, the prime minister and interior and foreign secretaries, to ensure independence of the country.

Hameed also urged the court to direct the respondents to file a case before the US courts of law against US officials intervening in Pakistan's political and other affairs. (ANI)
