Musharraf rejects Ghamdi’s resignation
By Mohammad Imran
ISLAMABAD: President Pervez Musharraf has refused to accept the resignation of Javed Ghamadi from the Council of Islamic Ideology (CII).
Dr Ghamdi had resigned from the CII in September as a protest against the government for bypassing the constitutional body on the Women’s Protection Bill by establishing an ulema committee.
“President Musharraf has informed the CII that he has rejected Dr Ghamdi’s resignation,” CII Chairman Dr Khalid Masud told Daily Times, adding that the CII would discuss the issue with Musharraf in a meeting likely to be held when the bill would be tabled in the National Assembly.
