Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal reaches IHC | Pakistan

ISLAMABAD: Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal arrived at the Islamabad High Court on Monday for hearing of the Islamabad protest case. 

The minister had been summoned a contempt notice over the government’s failure to implement court orders directing the shifting of the Faizabad protest to the Parade Ground. 

Workers of a religious party have been protesting against the government at Faizabad Interchange of the capital for around three weeks.

As today’s hearing went under way, the deputy attorney general told Justice Shaukat Aziz Siddiqui that he was informed of the agreement between the protesters and the government from the news channels. 

He said the minister will inform the court of the agreement’s details in person when he appears. 

During today’s proceedings, the chief commissioner informed the judge that the sit-in will be cleared as the two sides have reached an agreement. The judge then directed the counsel to read out the judgment and questioned the guarantee of the sit-in ending. 

At the last hearing, Justice Siddiqui had directed the interior secretary to submit Senator Raja Zafarul Haq’s report before the court.

The ruling party has formed an inquiry committee under Haq that will identify those responsible for the ‘clerical error’ that led to the change in the oath of the Finality of Prophethood for electoral candidates.
