IHC has ordered a religious group to end its sit-in on the Faizabad intersection

The Islamabad High Court (IHC) has ordered a religious group to end its sit-in on the Faizabad intersection — the main link between the twin cities of Islamabad and Rawalpindi, Express News reported on Thursday.

Around 2,000 protesters led by a Lahore-based firebrand cleric, Khadim Hussain Rizvi, have kept Faizabad blocked since November 8, agitating over an amendment in the Khatm-e-Nabuwat clause.

The cleric’s main demand is that the government identify and punish those responsible for the recent controversy surrounding change of Khatm-e-Nabuwat clause in the election law.

During the hearing of a petition by the religious group’s lawyer Maulana Allah Wasaya, who claimed the Elections Act, 2017 promulgated on October 2, had repealed several laws through its Section 241, IHC judge Justice Shaukat Aziz Siddiqui said the young, elderly, employees and students were being affected due to the sit-in.
