It also stated in letter that JUI-F is continuously raising its voice against ‘rigging’ during 2018 general elections in Pakistan that’s why has been banned. It was further stated in the letter, sent to, international rights organisations, including Amnesty International, that being a political party to hold protest was its constitutional and democratic right but Pemra wanted to gag its voice and therefore world organisations should raise the issue at international fora
