IIU stopped from deducting allowance from salaries of lecturers
Islamabad: Justice Noorul Haq N Qureshi of the Islamabad High Court (IHC) here on Thursday
stopped the International Islamic University (IIU) administration from

university was not a profitable corporate institution but it is an
educational institution therefore it is difficult for its administration
