The Lahore High Court (LHC) has summoned Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar to appear in person on Monday in a case pertaining to the alleged publication of the Holy Quran by the Ahmadiyya community, a news outlet reported on Friday.
According to the report, Justice Shujaat Ali Khan also summoned other parties related to the case for getting their comments in the matter as the police and Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) officials were shifting the burden on each other during the hearing.
Justice Shujaat summoned the chief minister to ensure the implementation of the court’s previous order in the case, in which the court had passed 18 directions for the authorities concerned that include the availability of a standard copy of the Holy Quran along with its literal meaning at federal, provincial, district and tehsil levels duly approved by the respective Quran Boards to use it as a specimen to determine as to whether any subsequent publication qualifies the test of authenticity of the original text of Holy Quran and its literal meaning or not.
Earlier, a petitioner namely Hassan Moavia had filed a petition claiming that the members of the minority community were not only publishing the Holy Quran with “distorted text and mutilated translation” but also sending its copies abroad.
Now Hassan has once again approached the court, claiming that the authorities concerned are not implementing the court’s directives.
