Islamabad bar suspends notification asking lawyers to submit faith affidavits

Share

The Islamabad Bar Council (IBC) on Thursday suspended a controversial notification issued by the Islamabad Bar Association (IBA) that made it mandatory for lawyers to submit affidavits regarding their faith.

Mr Khokhar was elected earlier this month. On Jan 15, he issued a notification asking IBA members to submit an affidavit regarding their faith by Jan 31. He warned lawyers that their membership would be suspended if they did not submit the affidavit.

Should religion be part of the law?

The relationship between state and religion differs from country to country. And in Pakistan religion is given the highest position. Constitution is under God, however, the constitution is suspended whenever the current govt deems it’s coming in their way. But religion has always been used in Pakistan for politics and popular support. Moreover, religion in Pakistan has a power that no one else does. But the religion is segregated.Pakistan cannot even come to conform all the sects!
