    The Supreme Court’s recent decision to strip the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party of its iconic election symbol, the ‘bat,’ has sent shockwaves through the legal and political communities. The verdict, announced just before midnight, has been described as “excessive, punitive, and a huge blow to our fundamental rights” by lawyer Reema Omer. Another lawyer, Jibran Nasir, expressed regret that the decision would disenfranchise “tens of millions of voters across Pakistan.” The ruling has also been criticized by Barrister Asad Rahim Khan, who called it “utterly ludicrous,” and activist Ammar Ali Jan, who deemed it “not just a defeat for PTI but a defeat for democratic norms in Pakistan.” The decision has raised concerns about its potential impact on the democratic process and the fundamental rights of the citizens.
