Making his argument before a 17-member full bench of the Supreme Court (SC), headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Nasirul Mulk, hearing petitions against 18th and 21st Constitutional Amendments, Pakistan’s Attorney General (AG) Salman Aslam Butt on Thursday said that terrorist organisation Daish’s name will be included in the list of banned organisations.
On the occasion, Butt presented a list of 221 banned organisations in court. He also submitted record of 21st Amendment and Army Act record regarding military courts.
Earlier, Justice Jawwad S Khawaja had asked the AGP if Daish’s name was included in the list of banned organisations.
Responding to Justice Khwaja’s query on Raza Rabbani’s statement on 21st Amendment, AG Butt said that Rabbani was elected Senate chairman after the statement.
Butt argued that the 21st Amendment was passed by the Parliament after lengthy debate by parliamentarians’ belonging to different political parties of the House. He said that Army Act was approved in the Senate while the president of Pakistan signed both the Army Act and the 21st Amendment at the same time.
Later, the court directed the AG to complete his arguments by 11am Friday and adjourned the case hearing till today.
