Q1. Aslam is a young businessman who has just graduated from University. He decides to start up a business, which organizes marriage functions within Lahore — seeing an opportunity in a local market. Aslam approaches Bank for obtaining a loan to secure office premises. The bank is impressed by his business plan, but given his inexperience, is only willing to lend him Rs.20.00 Million, if the loan is guaranteed.
One evening, Aslam and a representative from Bank go to visit Aslam’s mother in a village. Aslam’s mother (Sakina) is seventy years old and she has been in the village for nine years after a car accident in which her husband was killed. As a result of the accident, she suffered a major brain hemorrhage and has lost most memories of her life, and suffers from some language comprehension difficulties. She is very passive and she was heavily reliant on her husband for emotional and financial support.
Aslam shows her mother the contract and tells her: “The Bank just wants to make sure that everything will be okay with my new business. They just want to make sure that someone will pay them if it goes broke, but I am sure it won’t come to that. Can you just sign here?” Her signatures are obtained on the deed of guarantee.
Is Aslam’s mother liable under the guarantee? Explain your opinion with reasons.
