The Islamabad High Court directed the office-bearers of the bar association on Tuesday to meet the Faizabad protesters and inform them about the court's orders to end their blockade.
Justice Shaukat Aziz Siddiqui summoned the office-bearers of the Islamabad High Court Bar Association (IHCBA) to resolve the issue, Express News reported.
IHCBA General Secretary Arbab Alam Abbasi and other office-bearers appeared before the court. The judge told them that they had been assigned a major task and perhaps their efforts would help in bringing the prevailing crisis to an end.
Khatm-e-Nabuwat clause back in its original form
Justice Siddiqui added that though the cause of Khatme Nabuwat was a noble one, the participants of the Faizabad Interchange protest were unaware of the damage they were causing.
The court ordered the protesters on November 16 to end their sit-in, however, they remain defiant.
Around 2,000 protesters led by a Lahore-based firebrand cleric, Khadim Hussain Rizvi, have kept Faizabad blocked since November 8, agitating over an amendment in the Khatm-e-Nabuwat clause in the electoral reforms law.
Their main demand is that the government should sack the law minister over the change in the clause.
