The Federal Shariat Court (FSC) on Monday dismissed a petition seeking an order against the marriage of Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan on the basis of ten questions related to Islamic laws and constitutional provisions, reports Malik Asad for Dawn.

A three-member FSC bench declared the petition as non-maintainable with an observation that the petition was “not filed in accordance with the Federal Shariat Court (Procedure) Rules 1981”.

The court order mentioning the 10 questions asked by the petitioner stated that some questions were “absurd, derogatory and absolutely irrelevant”, while two questions that were related to Nikkah were “ambiguous, inconceivable and not understandable, rather [they] were not supposed to be framed at all.”



The questions put forward in the petition were in relevance to Khula and the dissolution of marriage.

The order stated that the petitioner had “not specified any specific provision of law being repugnant to the injunctions of Quran and Sunnah as required by the Constitution, as elaborated in the Federal Shariat Court (Procedure) Rules, 1981. Subse­quen­t­­ly, it dismissed the petition declaring it as non-maintainable”.
