Unexpected Twist: JUI-Fazl Withdraws Iddat Case Against Imran.

1 minute, 3 seconds Read

The Peshawar High Court in Pakistan has dismissed a petition seeking the disqualification of Imran Khan, former prime minister and chairman of the PTI political party, from taking part in the national and provincial assembly elections. The challenge was made by two members of the Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam-Fazl, who later withdrew their case, claiming that Imran Khan was not qualified under Article 62 of the Pakistani Constitution, which stipulates that candidates for public office must be ‘Sadiq’ and ‘Ameen’ (truthful and trustworthy), among other criteria. The petitioner’s lawyer alleged that Imran Khan had violated Islamic principles by marrying his current wife, Bushra Maneka, during her iddat, or the four-month and 10-day period of mourning following a divorce from her previous husband.

However, the Chief Justice of the High Court, Musarrat Hilali, and Justice Shakeel Ahmad dismissed the case, stating that the issues raised by the petitioners were political in nature and not relevant to the issue of Imran Khan’s eligibility. The petitioner’s also claimed that Mr Khan’s personal conduct, such as affairs mentioned in a 2018 book by his former wife, Reham Khan, showed that he was not of good character under Article 62. However, the case has now been closed.
