A Pakistani singer and politician, Abrar ul Haq has a case of chairmanship for Pakistan Red Crescent Society. He visits court on an off for this petition. In the previous hearing of the case, Islamabad High Court suspended Abrar’s chairmanship for 3 days. However, there is another development in this case.
On Friday, Islamabad High Court extended the suspension of the chairmanship of the singer for Red Crescent Society till the next hearing. The court gave this order while hearing for the petition which the outgoing chairman of PRCS filed against Abrar-ul-Haq.
Former chairman of PRCS
Dr.Saeed Ilahi was the former chairman of the Pakistan Red Crescent Society. He filed a petition against Abrar ul Haq saying his appointment an illegal act. According to the verdict of Saeed Elahi, he was appointed for three years. His tenure will end in March 2020 but they removed him from the chairmanship before time. Also, he said that no one notified him about his removal prior to the act.
Additionally, in the recent hearing of the case, Abrar ul Haq appeared in the court. Along with him, his counsel also appeared. Abrar’s counsel made sure to satisfy the court saying that this petition against Abrar to suspend his chairmanship is not maintainable. Similarly, the chief justice of Islamabad High Court Athar Minallah adjourned the orders of his appointment. Justice said that “law cannot be violated by anyone”.
Moreover, the court gave another week to the federal government to submit the response. Till then, they have extended the suspension of Abrar ul haq’s chairman.
We have been following the news since its beginning. Prior to this development, court suspended him from the chairmanship for three days. The former chairman, Saeed Elahi claimed that Abrar leads the Sahara Foundation. Hence, there must be some lack of interest for him to work on this Society.
