The Islamabad High Court has rejected the petition filed by former human rights minister and PTI leader Dr Shireen Mazari challenging Section 124-A of the Pakistan Penal Code, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

IHC Chief Justice Athar Minallah on Saturday heard the petition and threw it out declaring it non-maintainable. 

PTI leader Dr Mazari petitioned the court to declare the Section 124-A of PPC under which sedition cases are filed null and void. 

During yesterday’s hearing, Chief Justice Minallah remarked that legislation was parliament’s prerogative and the court could not intervene in it.
