ISLAMABAD - Supreme Court (SC) has announced verdict in the case of Arabic language as the compulsory subject.

SC on Wednesday while approving the Punjab government s plea challenging the verdict regarding making Arabic language as compulsory subject, dismissed the judgement of the federal sharia court.

A two-member bench of the apex court headed by Justice Musheer Alam conducted the hearing of the case.

During the proceedings, Prosecutor Qasim Chauhan on behalf of Punjab government while presenting his arguments said that it was not jurisdiction of Sharia Court to make a decision in this regard.

However, the prosecutor further added that religious observances can be imposed but the matters cannot be imposed forcefully.
