    Supreme Court suspends Farahnaz Ispahani

    ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court has suspended the National Assembly membership of Farahnaz Ispahani.

    The apex court was hearing the dual nationality case during which documents pertaining to Farahnaz's US nationality were presented.

    During proceedings, Justice Jawwad S. Khawaja remarked that Farhanaz Ispahani had taken oath that she would hold a gun if need arose for the defence of the United States.

    The Supreme Court said that Ispahani had confided that she was an American citizen and it would be in the greater interest of the people if the membership of parliamentarians holding dual nationality be suspended.

    According to the Supreme Court, Ispahani had not informed the Election Commission about her dual nationality.

    Farahnaz Isphani who is the wife of Pakistan’s former ambassador to the United States Husain Haqqani was elected on a PPP-P reserved seat ticket.

    Also during proceedings, the counsel for Interior Minister Rehman Malik on behalf of his client requested for more time to present the certificate of Malik forfeiting his British citizenship.

    The hearing of the case has been adjourned till May 30.

    In earlier proceedings of the case, the Supreme Court had issued notices to Rehman Malik and Farahnaz Ispahani.

    The case is being heard by a three member bench of the Supreme Court headed by Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry.

    Dual National must be banned from holding any public office, Only the people who have 100% stake in Pakistan must be allowed. If any dual national wan to serve the country he/she must surrender foreign nationality and must wait at-least for 2 years.

    I ain't getting my hopes up this time, Fehmida Mirza will veto it again.

    So, the decision of a 7 member SC bench can be overturned by the Speaker in just a flash, just like that!!

    Sometimes, democracy sucks!!!:)

    A member of Parliament, Provisional Assembly, Leader of Party , President and Prime-minister and all other high level post MUST have requirement to surrender any other nationality.


    Otherwise conflict of Interest will always arise.

    I think this decision is correct though. She has taken an oath to defend the US with guns if threatened. Conflict of interest for me, if you're in the NA with NATO blockade

    Exactly. If we ever go to war with them, a dual national has an oath to defend the other country too

    for her and many other American citizens sitting in our Legislative assemblies..not helping USA in their hour of need is an act of treason against USA and doing anything against Pakistan is also treason.

    Which is a conflict of interest. But I thought only the speaker could suspend people or that it went through her?

    Now where is the constitution.

    If a big majority of parliamentarians are found to be holding dual nationality i will not be surprised.

    Oath of Allegiance (United States)

    "I hereby declare, on oath, that I absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state or sovereignty, of whom or which I have heretofore been a subject or citizen; that I will support and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I will bear arms on behalf of the United States when required by the law; that I will perform noncombatant service in the armed forces of the United States when required by the law; that I will perform work of national importance under civilian direction when required by the law; and that I take this obligation freely without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; so help me God."

    Same goes for thsoe holding UK passports

    If they cannot fulfil the requiremnt of the constition of Pakistan which they supposedly are trying to save then the right justice should be that these people be hanged for holding dual nationality and having seats be it parliamentarians or President or Prime Minister or minister as they are all spies.

    Then only will we say that constitution is being implemented.

    Otherwise one more slap on the citizen that constitution is not for the good of the citizen but for the good of the politicians and their respective chairs only.
