Message

The primary mission of the AJK Shariat Court is to provide a fair and impartial forum for the resolution of disputes. Fairness includes the opportunity to be heard, the chance to have the court process explained, and the right to be treated with respect. Impartiality requires that court decisions be based on the law and facts of a given case, not on the political convictions, personal views, or religious beliefs of those involved – or on such factors as a party’s race, gender, economic circumstances, or social status.
