The Islamabad High Court on Saturday issued a written order on the registration of an FIR in Pakistan after the Masjid-e-Nabwi incident last month. Most of the complaints received by the police were against PTI leaders and PTI’s Fawad Chaudhry had filed a petition in the Islamabad High Court seeking an injunction.

In a written order issued on Saturday, the Islamabad High Court said that the authorities have accepted that the “leadership of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf was not present at the place where the incident took place”.

The court said the Saudi authorities took cognizance of the “disgusting” incident and initiated proceedings, but the Pakistan government had not received any information from them “suspicion of the involvement of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf leadership”.

The court then emphasized that under Article 7 of the Constitution, it was the obligation of the state to “take appropriate measures to ensure that religion is not exploited and used for personal or political gain.”

The court observed that “it is an indisputable fact that religion has been exploited by the organs of the state in the past and such exploitation has put the lives of innocent persons at grave risk.”

The court also referred to the mob lynchings of Mashal Khan and Sri Lankan national Priyantha Kumara and said that “exploitation or use of religion and religious sentiments for personal or political gains in itself is blasphemy.”

The order said, “The Federal Government is directed to ensure that no case is registered against the leadership of Tehreek-e-Insaf unless there is credible and verifiable evidence of their involvement in the incident.” Don’t know.”

The court has adjourned the hearing till May 26.
