LHC Halts Notifications of Rana Sana’s Victory

Lahore (August 06, 2018): The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Monday stopped the electoral commission (ECP) from issuing the victory notification of former Punjab law minister Rana Sanaullah in NA-106 Faisalabad constituency.

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) candidate Dr Nisar Ahmed had challenged the victory of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Rana Sanaullah from NA-106 pleading that the former law minister had allegedly caused harm to the sanctity of Islam by saying that welcoming Nawaz was a bigger task as compared to performing Hajj.

A resident of Faisalabad’s Ghulam Muhammad Abad area named Javed Arshad last week had also filed a petition against Rana Sanaullah over hurting religious sentiments.The petitioner alleged that Rana Sanaullah hurt sentiments of Muslims by terming Nawaz Sharif’s reception as biggest and more sacred act than Hajj [annual Islamic pilgrimage to Makkah]. The petitioner further accused Sanaullah of sacrilege.

The petition sought registration of case against the PML-N stalwart and initiation of legal action against him.
