Lal Masjid cleric approaches SC on imposition of countrywide Shariah law

ISLAMABAD:  Maulana Abdul Aziz, cleric of Lal Masjid, has approached the Supreme Court for imposition of Shariah Law across the country.

In a petition filed through his counsel Tariq Asad , Aziz urged SC to “direct federal and provincial governments to take steps as required under the Constitution in order to enable the lives of Muslims in accordance with the

The SC was requested in a petition to “direct the state under Article 25-A to provide free and compulsory education to all children between ages of five to 16 years.”

Last month, Maulana Aziz had given the government “two weeks” to fulfil his demands, and warned of protests in case of non-compliance.

One of the main demands include recovery of his son-in-law who has been missing since June 2014. Maulana Aziz has also demanded that a ban on his movement be lifted and that no barriers be placed in his campaign to enforce Sharia in Pakistan. Yet another demand by him is that an FIR registered against him last year be quashed and he be provided police security.

On November 13, Maulana Aziz had resumed his campaign to enforce Sharia and gave a sermon at Lal Masjid in this regard.
