IHC Rejects Petition Seeking PM Imran Disqualification

ISLAMABAD: Islamabad High Court on Monday (today) has rejected a petition seeking disqualification of premier Imran Khan.

The IHC bench comprising Chief Justice Athar Minullah heard the petition asking to declare Prime Minister Imran Khan disqualified from his post.

A citizen Hafiz Ahtasham filed the petition in the IHC and demanded the Prime Minister disqualification in Tyrian White scandal.

The petitioner had sought to argue that Prime Minister Khan should be disqualified for ‘concealing’ his alleged parentage of Tyrian Jade Khan White in his nomination papers for the 2018 election.

However, the judges refused to dwell on the arguments and admonished the petitioner for not understanding the law or respecting Islamic teachings about respecting others’ privacy.

The IHC Chief Justice Athar Minullah rejected the petition citing article 63 (H) and remarked that the mentioned article is about moral matters and explained that Islam’s first principle is to hide someone’s personal life.

The IHC CJ further said that if this sought of the petition filed again then fines will also be charged on the petitioner.
