By Super Admin

Islamabad, Apr.14 (ANI): Qazi courts have started functioning with full authority following the National Assembly's nod to implement the sharia law in the Malakand division, The News reports.

The sharia courts were already functioning in Barrikot, Kabal, Matta, Khawazakhel, Bahrain and Babuzai tehsils of Swat from March with limited authority, but after the approval of Nizam-e-Adl regulation they now have full authority to decide over different matters.

The National Assembly had gave its green signal to a resolution asking President Asif Ali Zardari to sign the sharia regulation to be implemented in the Malakand division of the North West Frontier Province (NWFP) according to the peace accord inked between the NWFP government and the Tehreek Nifaz-e-Shariat-e-Muhammadi (TNSM).

Following the National Assembly's nod, Zardari also signed the sharia law deal to be implemented in NWFP's Swat region. (ANI)
