Zakat on Islamic Government Bonds

The Pakistani government has offered an Islamic alternative to their government bond. This post by another user on the IFG Forum has some details about it. It is a mudarabah-based certificate and is Called the INPC (Islamic Naya Pakistan Certificate). It is administered by Meezan Bank in Pakistan.

How do you calculate the zakat on this seeing as the underlying asset is a government asset (it could be property but we are not sure).

Wa alaykum salaam,

Zakat will be due on the entire investment. However, I would contact Meezan bank for confirmation to ensure the Shariah board has the same view.
