MNA Ali Wazir has been granted bail in a hate speech case nearly a year after his arrest!

On Tuesday, the Supreme Court on Tuesday granted bail to Pashtun Tahaffuz Movement (PTM) leader in a case related to making incendiary remarks against state institutions.

A three-judge bench, headed by Justice Sardar Tariq Masood and comprising Justice Jamal Mandokhail and Justice Aminuddin Khan heard  Wazir’s appeal against the Sindh High Court’s (SHC) judgment earlier this year that had dismissed his bail application.

The apex court set bail at Rs400,000.

Peshawar Police arrested MNA Ali Wazir last year on Dec 16, at the request of Sindh Police in connection with a case registered against him and several leaders of the Pashtun Tahafuz Movement (PTM) in Karachi after a recent public meeting.

They were accused of committing several offenses, including hatching a criminal conspiracy and passing derogatory remarks against state institutions.
