Review Petition on Imran Khan’s Marriage to Be Heard by FSC on October 2
ISLAMABAD: The Federal Shariat Court (FSC) has scheduled a hearing for a review petition concerning the marital status of PTI chairman Imran Khan.
A three-member bench, led by FSC Chief Justice Iqbal Hameedur Rahman, is set to consider the review plea on October 2.
The other two judges on the bench are Justice Khadim Hussain M Shaikh and Justice Dr. Syed Muhammad Anwer.
On February 7, 2022, the FSC had rejected a petition filed by Shahid Orkazai, deeming it non-maintainable and observing that it did not adhere to the Federal Shariat Court (Procedure) Rules of 1981.
The petition had sought a judgment against Imran Khan’s marriage based on ten questions pertaining to Islamic laws and constitutional provisions.
The court had noted that some of the questions were “absurd, derogatory, and entirely irrelevant,” while two others were “vague, incomprehensible, and not clear.”
However, Orkazai has now lodged a review appeal challenging the court’s previous decision.
