Supreme Court Orders Closure of Monal and All Restaurants in Margalla Hills

The Supreme Court issued a directive on Tuesday to shut down all restaurants within Margalla National Park, including the popular Monal restaurant.

The court dismissed the Capital Development Authority’s (CDA) report on Monal and summoned the Chairman of the Authority to appear in court immediately.

During the hearing of the Monal Restaurant case, Chief Justice Qazi Faez Isa noted that the apex court had requested a report on several other restaurants as well. He mentioned the inclusion of the Sports Club Pak-China Center and Arts Council National Monument in the report, praising the honesty of CDA officials.

Justice Isa questioned whether the SC building and the CDA office also fell within Margalla National Park, suggesting that if they did, it would be preferable for the Authority to demolish its building. He criticized the CDA for seemingly being unaware of the proliferation of restaurants near Monal, which is widely known worldwide.
