IHC orders religious parties to end sit-in

ISLAMABAD:The Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Thursday ordered the religious parties to end their sit-in at Faizabad Interchange.

Two religious parties have been staging the sit-in against a change in the Khatm-e-Nabuwwat affidavit for the last 10 days.

Hearing the petition filed by Maulana Allah Wasaya against the amendments to the clauses related to the finality of Prophethood in the Elections Act, 2017, Justice Shaukat Aziz Siddiqui remarked that the petition will be taken up on the condition of ending the sit-in.

He observed that the people from all sections of the society are badly affected by the protest. “If a good deed is done wrongly, then it becomes a wrong act.”

Maulana Khadim Hussain Rizvi had demanded to expose those responsible for a change in the affidavit.

The court summoned the Islamabad police chief, chief commissioner and an interior ministry official in person at the next hearing and adjourned the case until November 29.
