IHC stops police from registering cases under blasphemy laws

ISLAMABAD: The Islamabad High Court (IHC) has on Tuesday rejected petitions seeking disqualification of three women Members National Assembly (MNAs) from Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI).
According to details, three petitions had been filed against the eligibility of PTI’s Maleeka Bokhari, Tashfeen Safdar and Kanwal Shauzab by Shaista Pervaiz, Abdullah Khan and Begum Tahira Bokhari.
It was alleged in the pleas that the PTI lawmakers concealed factual information from the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) at the time of filing nomination papers.
Justice Aamer Farooq announced the verdict, which was reserved in December last year, and declared the PTI MNAs eligible while turning down the petitions against them.
