Lahore, Sep.17 (ANI): A Pakistani woman has filed a petition in the Lahore High Court (LHC) seeking Pakistani citizenship for her Indian husband.

Justice Mian Saqib Nisar admitted the petition filed by one Shazia Zia, and referred the matter to the High Court Chief Justice.

Zia, in her petition, said she has married an Indian national named Majid Ali, but the authorities have denied giving her husband a Pakistani citizenship despite repeated appeals.

She alleged that there was no legal justification for this refusal and submitted that it was gender discrimination which has no provision in the constitution

"A foreigner woman married a Pakistani man and got Pakistani nationality, but my husband is being refused the same," The Daily Times stated the petition, as saying. (ANI)
