He said that the family court of Pakistan couldn’t decide the kids’ custody dispute. The lawyer also gave the reference of top court’s verdict in similar cases in which children were handed over to the mothers. He prayed the court to grant the custody of kids to his clients.

The lawyer said that one of his client woman had embraced Islam in 2005 before her marriage. However, the other woman told the court that she had not married the said Pakistani citizen and she had not embraced Islam. She said that the children were studying at a Poland school.

The court was told that the children were also going to school in Rawalpindi. Muhammad Saleem, the father, adopted the stance that the court could take the opinion of children who were more than seven years old.

The AAG said that it had to be viewed with whom the children were staying at last time. He requested the court to decide on the legal guardian of the children. He said how the religion of six-year-old children could be changed.

To a query of the bench, the father said that the women could meet their children anytime and he was ready to bear their travel expenditures. The woman also said that the father could meet anytime if they were granted the kids’ custody.

After listening to arguments from both sides, the court ordered them to hand over the children to the mothers and instructed them to remove their names from the ECL. The court said that the children could meet their father anytime in Pakistan and women had to ensure this. The court disposed of the case.
