Justice Azmat Saeed Khosa heading a three-member bench remarked that the plea was inadmissible.
The bench said the Turk government had also declared PTICEF a banned organization. Justice Ejazul Hassan said other 40 countries had also banned the outfit.
The lawyer representing the firm said the organization was being funded by none other than Turkish people. He said these schools were not shut down in Malaysia. “You can also leave for Malaysia [if you want], remarked Justice Khosa.
He said other terror organizations could also open institutions in the country.
Justice Khosa stated that the administration was funding money laundering and terrorism in Pakistan. He referred to the lawyer that “you can not defend a terror outfit in the court.”
