Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (Pemra) was directed to decide on the complaints within 15 days.
A three-judge bench of the Lahore High Court (HC) was hearing petitions against alleged contemptuous speeches by PML-N leaders since Sharif was ousted from office in a graft case July 28, 2017.
Naqvi said that while Article 19 of the Constitution allowed fair criticism of the judiciary, not every person should be allowed to criticise the courts just for the sake of exercising the right, The Express Tribune reported.
"It can't be that anyone out there goes about denouncing judicial matters and decisions in the name of fair criticism", he remarked, adding that it would make sense for an expert or lawyer to dwell on judicial matters but not everyone can be allowed to do so.
PEMRA's counsel told that the authority gave a verdict but the judge said that the petition was later dismissed by PEMRA on technical grounds.More news: Apple Warns About Media Leaks-In a Leaked Memo
The petitioner said PEMRA did not block these hateful and ridiculing remarks passed against the judiciary. "Should publishing of such a notice be considered a minor mistake?"
Subsequently, the court directed PEMRA to strictly monitor the speeches. Safdar was present in the court for the hearing.
He said the court orders should explain what it means by speech against judiciary.
Advocate Amjad Pervez, resumed cross-examination of star witness Wajid Zia, head of the Panama Joint Investigation Team where he had left off a day earlier.

Sharif called for an end to muzzling media and individuals.
"So the court's decision is correct, but it will still be hard to implement".
Sharif said patriots have became traitors today, adding that he wanted all to get along.
It was discussed how much the decision will impact the PML-N movement with the motto "vote ko izzat do" in near future. "But the other side should also have moved on".More news: ATMs across country go dry, Arun Jaitley says 'temporary shortage'
