When the court asked the regulatory body why it had dismissed the petitions, Pemra's counsel Salman Akram Raja said the allegations against the government agency were baseless. "A person dissatisfied at a verdict should file a review petition", he said.

In a reference to Lahore High Court's orders to PEMRA against airing his speeches, he said "We will win no matter how much restrictions are placed".

Munir Ahmad, Amna Malik and a number of other citizens had moved the court against contemptuous speeches by the PML-N.
