PPO Buzz promo
Afrasiab Khattak

Awami National Party (ANP)

The Senate of Pakistan will resist laws violative of human rights given in the Constitution.


Syed Raza Ali Abidi

Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM)

Do you know, that by this PPO of PML-N, each one of you is vulnerable to be shot at sight or held captive for 90 days’ detention by LEAs.


Nafisa Shah

Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP)

All political parties in the Parliament – PPP, PTI, MQM, JI and govt allies JUI-F – had severe objection at undemocratic way in which the PPO was passed.


Naz Baloch

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI)

PPO 2014 is irrational & a violation of the sanctity of citizens, as it authorises LEAs to break into any house without a search warrant.


Nabil Gabol

Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM)

Hypocrisy, isnt it? Zahid Hamid, once Musharaf’s Minister for Law; today the same Zahid Hamid is made minister by MNS as he presented the PPO bill in the NA.


Arif Alvi

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI)

Disgusting black day in NA. Protested against the PPO. Was ready to move my (31) amendments which the Speaker disallowed. Bill Bulldozed Brutally.


Marvi Sirmed


Waiting for my arrest. RT @MaverickIR: Now those who will talk against #PMLN talks with TTP or its misgovernance will be booked under #PPO.


Cyril Almeida

Columnist, DAWN

Also, enjoying the quintessentially Pakistani twist that alleged author of army-dictated PPO Amendment is the same guy prosecuting Mush.


Fifi Haroon


Highly dubious this #PPO – this govt is closing in on everything that suggests critique or debate. Be it digital rights or political dissent.


Taha Siddiqui


Army was already abducting civilians, but 1st this law & now PPO will give them legal cover for human rights abuse. #SayNoToExtraJudicialActs
