Mr. Khan wrote: Although IHC recognizes peaceful protest as a fundamental right under Articles 15, 16, 17 and 19 of the Constitution in its decision on our petition; and despite being a demonstration in support of the Constitution and the rule of law, the ICT police unleashed violence against our women and men.
