Mazar-e-Quaid board submits plea against Maryam Nawaz in court

Mazar-e-Quaid board submits plea against Maryam Nawaz in court
November 13, 2020

The petition requested from the court to order action against Maryam, Safdar and other leaders for violating the sanctity of Mazar-e-Quaid over sloganeering at the tomb under the Quaid-e-Azam’s Mazar (Protection and Maintenance) Ordinance.

The petition also stated that on October 8, Safdar Awan and others violated the rules by chanting slogans at Mazar-e-Quaid. The court has been asked to take action against Maryam Nawaz, Safdar Awan and others under the provisions of the law relating to protection and sanctity of Mazar-e-Quaid.

The court, however, returned his plea raising an objection to it and asked the applicant to submit it again with a power of attorney. The application will be fixed for hearing once he removes the objection.

Earlier on Monday, the police filed a challan declaring the FIR against Maryam and her husband over violating the sanctity of Mazar-e-Quaid as “fake”. The investigation officer concluded that neither the complainant, Waqas Khan, joined the investigation nor the veracity of his claims could be established.

The charge sheet stated the complainant was not present at Mazar-e-Quaid at the time of the purported action, nor was he spotted in CCTV footage. Besides, the entry of citizens to the tomb was banned during Maryam’s visit.

On October 19, PML-N vice president Maryam Nawaz’s husband was arrested from a private hotel in Karachi on charges of sloganeering at Quaid-e-Azam’s tomb and later released on bail.

A civil judge had approved his bail against a surety bond woth Rs100,000.
