Saad rejects opposition’s claim of removing Finality of Prophethood clause from Election Bill

ISLAMABAD: Minister for Railway Khawaja Saad Rafique Tuesday turned down opposition parties’ claim about removing the clause Finality of Prophethood (Khatm-e-Nabuwat) from the Election Bill 2017.

The minister, in his Tweet, said, “People should not be misled by telling lie and using the name of last Prophet Hazrat Muhammd Peace Be Upon Him (PBUH) that a clause of Finality of Prophethood had been removed from the bill.”

The minister said a copy of Election Bill 2017 had been available at website of the legislation section of the National Assembly since October 2, and the propaganda in that regard should be avoided.
