ISLAMABAD: The National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) has blocked Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) senior leader and senator Hafiz Hamdullah’s CNIC by terming him a “confirmed alien as he is not a citizen of Pakistan.”
It further stated that the NADRA vide its orders U/S 18(1) and 17(2) has cancelled and digitally impounded the CNIC issued to Mr. Hafiz Hamdullah Saboor.
Moreover, Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (Pemra) has also directed TV channels not to invite Maulana Hamdullah as a guest in their TV shows.
The media watch dog’s notification referenced a NADRA letter dated October 11 that affirmed that the JUI-F leader was not a citizen of Pakistan.
According to the notification, the CNIC of the JUI-F leader has been cancelled. This would mean that the former senator is no longer a citizen of Pakistan.
