Pillion Riding Banned Again in Karachi

I want to drag your attention towards the recent announcement from Government of Sindh that "pillion riding has been banned", the interior minister Manzor Wassan said that this step has been taken after reports that activists would attempt to disrupt peace in the city during the holy month of Muharram. He added that the ban would be in place for 10 days.

 However it is already stated by leading lawyers and other senior citizens that the Ban on Pillion riding is an
un-constitutional act as it is in contradiction of Article 8 that is discussed Fundamental Rights of Citizens. 

According to Article 8 clause (1) of the Constitution of Pakistan;

 Any law, or any custom or usage having the force of law, in so far as it is inconsistent with the rights conferred by this Chapter, shall, to the extent of such inconsistency, be void.

 & clause (2) of the same article stated that;

 The State shall not make any law which takes away or abridges the rights so conferred and any law made in contravention of this clause shall, to the extent of such contravention, be void.

So it is clearly stated above that State has no right to implement such laws that will abridge the rights of Citizens of the Pakistan. Pillion riding is a right of every citizen of Pakistan and banning this right is an un-constitutional act, Government will have to take serious actions to remove weaknesses of Police Department so that crimes could be minimized and not to implement such laws that will affect poor public that already facing crises of electricity break down and over pricing.
