Islamabad High Court announces verdict on JUI - F Hafiz Hamdullah nationality cancellation

ISLAMABAD - Islamabad High Court announces verdict on JUI - F Hafiz Hamdullah nationality cancellation.

The Islamabad High Court on Tuesday suspended National Database and Registration Authority's (Nadra) decision to cancel the citizenship of Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) senator Maulana Hafiz Hamdullah.

IHC Chief Justice Athar Minallah heard the petition filed against the cancellation of JUI-F leader's citizenship.

During the hearing, Justice Minallah inquired where Maulana Hamdullah’s children were. “Do the children also have Pakistani National Identity Card (NIC)?” Justice Minallah remarked.

To this, the Nadra's counsel replied that Hamdullah was first told through a letter that his NIC had been blocked. “The district level committee was informed and Hamdullah appeared before the committee. He was asked to present documents which turned out to be bogus,” Nadra's counsel told the court.
