ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court of Pakistan on Thursday decided to constitute a five-member larger bench to hear the case of Forgiveness in the name of Allah Almighty.

A three-judge bench headed by Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry was hearing the case in Islamabad on Thursday.


During the proceedings, the Chief Justice said killing was not a big matter for rich people. The murderers are forgiven without begging for it.

The Chief Justice said the people should benefit from the principles of Quran and Sunah and wrong usage of these values be halted.

The CJ Iftikhar said Shariah provides golden rules to end land dispute, however, such laws should be used appropriately. He said legislation is parliament’s job.

Justice Jawwad S Khawaja said the state could enforce Tazir Pakistan (Pakistan Panel Code) even if the heirs of deceased forgive the murderers. He said there were limits for the heirs in Qisas.

Later, the court adjourned the hearing till October 13.
