Islamabad (HRNW) The Islamabad High Court reserved its verdict in the petition challenging the Aurat March.
The lawyer of the man who filed the petition asked the court to ban the march, which is held to mark International Women’s Day. To support his claim that the march must be banned, he presented three slogans chanted at the march before the court.
Chief Justice Athar Minallah said that if the march is against the law, there will be legal action against it. But there are a number of things happening in society that are against Islamic law, said the judge. The court hopes that the petitioner also approaches it for the enforcement of all these Islamic laws, he said.
Justice Minallah said the slogans being chanted at the Aurat March are the same as the rights guaranteed to them in Islam. Can we interpret them ourselves, he questioned.
