Army to be Deployed Across Pakistan for Muharram Security

Islamabad: The federal government has approved the deployment of the Pakistan Army and civil armed forces nationwide as a security measure during Muharram.

According to a notification issued by the Ministry of Interior, the government has requested the deployment of the army to maintain law and order during Muharram. The notification states that details of the deployment will be finalized with the governments of Gilgit-Baltistan, Azad Jammu and Kashmir, and Islamabad, and this deployment will be implemented for a specified period.

Furthermore, the notification mentioned that the date for de-requisitioning the deployment will be decided through mutual consultation among all stakeholders.

It is noted that provincial governments, including Punjab, have requested the federal government to suspend social media platforms for a week to curb the spread of hateful content on the internet.

According to a letter from the provincial home department discussed in the Cabinet’s standing committee meeting on law and order, the government has decided to suspend social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, YouTube, TikTok, and Instagram from 6 AM to 6 PM.

However, the federal government has not yet made any decision regarding the suspension of internet services during Muharram.
