On Saturday, a district and sessions court in the federal capital of Pakistan declared a petition against the alleged un-Islamic Nikkah of PTI chief Imran Khan and Bushra Bibi inadmissible. The ruling was announced by Civil Judge Nasruminallah, who stated that the case did not fall under his jurisdiction as the Nikkah was solemnised in Lahore.
The alleged un-Islamic Nikkah came to light after a petition was filed by Muhammad Hanif, a citizen of Pakistan, in a court in the federal capital. The petitioner’s lawyer Raja Rizwan Abbasi argued that the Nikkah was performed during the “Iddat” period of Bushra Bibi, which is unlawful according to Pakistani laws. He further added, “Why they held the Nikkah ceremony twice if the first one was legal,” referring to the first event held in Lahore.
However, after hearing arguments, the judge announced the ruling, declaring the petition against the former premier’s Nikkah inadmissible. This decision has put an end to the controversy surrounding the Nikkah ceremony.
Bushra Bibi has been denying the claims. Responding to questions about her “Iddat,” Bushra Bibi had once clarified that she left the house of her former husband, Maneka, after completing the “Iddat” period. Her response indicates that the Nikkah ceremony was performed legally and according to Islamic laws.
In conclusion, the district court’s ruling has settled the issue of the alleged un-Islamic Nikkah of Imran Khan and Bushra Bibi. Despite the controversy, the Nikkah was performed legally, and there was no violation of Pakistani laws. This ruling is a significant development, and it sets a precedent for similar cases in the future.
