The Islamabad High Court dismissed the petition filed to bring back the stranded Pakistani pilgrims in Iran.
Chief Justice of the Federal Capital Court Athar Minallah heard the petition filed by the Majlis Wahdat Muslim (MWM) for the return of the stranded pilgrims to Iran.
During the hearing, the lawyer told the court that hundreds of such visitors have been trapped in Iran and Iraq whose visas have expired.
On this, Chief Justice Athar Minallah said that this is a govt related matter and the court cannot interfere in it. You should contact the executive authority.
Later, the court dismissed the petition as unfit for hearing.
It was held in the petition that thousands of Pakistani pilgrims have been trapped in Iran whose visas have expired or are about to expire, visas have been issued to visitors but now they are not allowed to return to Pakistan.
It may be recalled that a large number of Corona cases that have reported in Pakistan came from Iran, while the first case reported in Sindh on 26 February had travelled to Iran.
