ISLAMABAD: Supreme Court of Pakistan on Tuesday heard an unusual petition of a 10-tola gold dispute between a woman and her former daughter-in-law.
Sabeeha Khanam filed a petition against the decision of the high court, which ruled in favour of providing 10-tola gold to her ex daughter-in-law. The case was heard by a three-member bench led by Chief Justice of Pakistan Qazi Faez Isa.
During the proceedings, Justice Isa directed questions to the petitioner’s lawyer, Zulfiqar Naqvi, seeking clarification on the intricacies of the family dispute between the two women. The lawyer informed the court that the conflict revolved around a disagreement between a mother-in-law and daughter-in-law regarding the custody of the gold.
Justice Isa further inquired about the marital status of the daughter-in-law and her Haq-e-Mehr, to which the counsel revealed that the woman had been divorced and had three children, with an alimony of Rs2,000.
The Chief Justice questioned the reluctance in providing 10-tola gold to a mother of three children and dismissed Sabeeha Khanam’s appeal to overturn the high court’s decision.
