ISLAMABAD - Supreme Court of Pakistan faces a unique and first ever case of such kind in the legal history of Pakistan.

She has petitioned to remove her father’s name from birth certificate and other related official documents.
The girl prays, “If parents can disown children, why can’t children do so?”
A three-member bench, headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar and comprising Justice Umar Ata Bandial and Justice Ijazul Ahsan, heard the unique case filed by 18-year-old Tatheer.
The girl went on to say, “How a person who she had never seen can be called her father?”
