The Islamabad High Court on Monday threatened to issue contempt of court notices to the prime minister, interior minister, and religious affairs minister if the Raja Zafar-ul-Haq report was not presented during the next hearing.
Proceedings of the Faizabad dharna case were underway at the high court. Despite the court’s orders, government representatives were not able to present the report today.
“You were told to submit the report today without the interior minister’s signature if it came to that,” said Justice Shaukat Siddiqui. “Why should we not hold those responsible in contempt of court today?”
Justice Shaukat Siddiqui sternly warned deputy attorney general not to play games with the court and said that if the government did not comply with court’s orders, why would others.
