Mehdi Kazmi’s petition was heard by a three-member bench of the supreme court.
The Dua Zahra case is resolved by the SC!
The event occurred on Thursday when the father’s attorney asked to withdraw the appeal of the Sindh High Court’s decision regarding the adolescent’s recovery.
The petition was considered by a three-judge panel at the Supreme Court’s Karachi registry, which was made up of Justices Muneeb Akhtar, Sajjad Ali Shah, and Muhammad Ali Mazhar.
In their observations, the bench stated that Dua was a human and that she should be treated as such rather than herded like a herd of livestock.
Since Dua Zehra had already married the lad of her choosing, the top court commented that they could do nothing to forward the case at this time.
The supreme court made it quite apparent to the father of Dua Zehra that his daughter’s situation was in no way one of “kidnapping” or “harassment.”
The SC judges also informed Mehdi Zazmi that her Nikah was still legitimate even if a girl under the age of 16 entered into a marriage contract.
The bench said, adding what they could do when her girl had refused to travel with him even after the meeting, that it is still legal even under the statute established by the Sindh Assembly.
Kazmi was also told by the highest court to contact the proper forums if he wanted to establish a medical board.
The SC informed the petitioner that the matter was outside of its purview.
Jibran Nasir, Mehdi Kazmi’s attorney, eventually acknowledged in a media interview that Dua’s nikah nama was genuine.
It hasn’t been proven to be phoney anywhere, he claimed.
“He and his client could contact the relevant venues for the formation of a medical board,” he continued.
He declared, “We will bring up the girl’s age factor at the trial court once more.”
“We will ask the secretary of health for a new board to be formed. And we are fairly confident that its findings will support us,” said Jibran Nasir.
