Petition filed in SHC to ban 5G over health risks

On Monday the Sindh High Court issued a notice to the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) against a petition file to ban the 5G technology in Pakistan.

A  2-member bench of the SHC chaired by Justice Muhammad Ali Mazhar took up the plea. Justice Amjad Sahito of the bench asked the petitioner whether the government has issued the 5G technology license. On which, he answered in negative.

The court then issued a notice to the national telecom authority to file its response to the plea against 5G.

The petitioner argued that 5G technology, which works with higher multi-Gbps peak data speeds, not only health risks to human beings but it also affects the ecosystem. 4G technology too poses various risks but that is less dangerous than the latest 5G, he mentioned.
