ISLAMABAD: The original draft of the 1973 Constitution, a very important document of the country, has been lost and the parliamentary sources have confirmed that the original document of the 1973 Constitution is not available in the record and archives of the National Assembly. The officials are struggling to find out when and how this very important document had been robbed or stolen. During the late Zulfikar Ali Bhutto's first government, the National Assembly of Pakistan had approved the first constitution of the country on April 10, 1973 and on April 12, 1973 the National Assembly, in its special session in the State Bank Building, Islamabad, had marked the signing ceremony on the new constitutional draft.

According to the record, after signing the document, members of the National Assembly, headed by Abdul Hafiz Pirzada, law minister of the time, went to the President House in Rawalpindi where Zulfikar Ali Bhutto (President at that time) put signature on the new Constitution. The parliamentary sources say that the original document of the 1973 Constitution had never been seen in the record of the Parliament House since then. When Speaker National Assembly Dr Fehmida Mirza at the time of approval of the 18th Amendment wanted to see the original document of the Constitution, it transpired that the same was not present in the record of the Assembly.
