Why CJP refuse to accept Rs 8 crore in Diamer-Bhasha Dam fund?

*LAHORE - Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Mian Saqib Nisar refused to accept the donations for the dam fund by a person who according to his wife has been suffering from a mental disorder.*

Few days earlier, a man named Sheikh Shahid donated his property worth Rs80 million to the Supreme Court of Pakistan and the Prime Minister of Pakistan Diamer-Bhasha and Mohmand Dams Fund.

On Sunday, the wife and three sons of the donor approached the Lahore registry of the apex court, complaining that Mr Shahid had donated the property without family’s consent.

Owing to his disturbed mental state, Mr Shahid took the step of donating the property for the fund without asking any family member, they added.

To which, Justice Nisar told the family that their property would not be accepted as a donation for the dam fund, because under the Sharia law, it was the right of the heirs.
