The Lahore district government of Pakistan has refused to grant permission to the women’s rights organization, Aurat March, to hold a public rally to commemorate International Women’s Day on March 8.
The organization requested permission from the local government to hold the rally but the Lahore Deputy Commissioner declined the request, citing threat alerts from security agencies as a reason.
The Aurat March organizing committee in a statement condemned the Deputy Commissioner while reacting to the decision and claimed that Jamat-e-Haya Islami’s March was to blame for the NOC being rejected.
The statement read: “The DC herself acknowledges that the Jamaat has launched a programme against the March, but the March is the one being denied its constitutional rights, not the organization inciting violence.”
