A case has been filed against Pakistani fast bowler Wahab Riaz for violating “one dish” rule at a party he arranged in connection with his wedding at his residence here. A police team raided his Garden Town residence and filed an FIR under section 188 of Pakistan Penal Code against him for violating a ban on more than one dishes at marriages. Wahab Riaz‘s nikah is planned for November 28.
In Punjab, a province of 90 million, the govt has banned serving more than one dish at marriage events that could not last 10pm. “How could police raid and register a case against my son when we were holding the marriage function inside our house,” Wahab Riaz’s father Sheikh Sikandar said. He said a police official heading the raiding team wanted “some money” and when his demand wasn’t met he filed the case on the pretext of violating one dish law.
