KARACHI - Division Bench of Sindh High Court comprising Justice Athar Saeed and Justice Bin Yameen on Wednesday disposed of the petition regarding the influx of Internally Displaced Person (IDP), by arguing that the IDPs are Pakistani nationals and can move anywhere as per desire. The petition had been moved by Syed Iqbal Kazmi. The court argued that being Pakistani nationals, the IDPs could live in any part of the country freely, while commented that the registration of the IDPs could be occurred only for the purpose of providing them aids by the government. The plaintiff requested to dispose of his petition, while the court granted his request along with the arguments. Syed Iqbal Kazmi submitted that under the article 15, the IDPs could not be intercepted to move anywhere in the country, as they were nationals of the country. While the registration of IDPs is not necessary either they move to any city of the country including Karachi. He added, If the government insists for the registration of the IDPs, it must be under the law by providing them PRC and domiciles of that place where they are being shifted. Due to the registration of the IDPs, the prejudice and ethnicity would be promoted among the people of the country as well as the IDPs. In the same way, the court has adjourned the hearing over the petition filed by Molvi Iqbal Haider against the entries of IDPs in Sindh, till 6 July. He submitted that the militants could enter the Sindh province as well as the metropolis, therefore, the registrations of IDPs must be initiated while providing them shelters.

The TLIF submitted in their petition that a million of people from Swat, Bunir and other tribal areas were compelled to leave their homeland due to ongoing Rah-e-Rast operation launched by the Pakistani forces against the militants, while seeking shelters in different parts of the country including Sindh. They had pleaded to accommodate the IDPs in New Haji Camp, situated in Sultanabad, Kemari Town Karachi, where at-least fifty thousand people could be accommodated. Court adjourned in imprisonment case Meanwhile, the same bench adjourned the hearing over the appeal moved by Muhajir Qaumi Movement MQM (H) Chairman Aamir Khan against his conviction of ten years imprisonment till 16 July. The assistance counsel on the behalf of Special Public Prosecutor (SPP), Mohammad Ashraf Kazi appeared before the bench and told that Kazi had been appointed as SPP from the government, and now he is on vacations, therefore, he requested to grant further time. It is noteworthy to mention here that the MQM (H) leader along with the co-accused Tariq alias Bata and Kala Nazim were sentenced to life imprisonment for killing Anum Uzair and Mohammad Naeem of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement in Landhi during 2003. They were also awarded shorter terms and fines on other counts. Aamir Khan was sentenced to 10 years for instigating and abetting the offence. All the accused were directed to pay Rs100000 each to the legal heirs of the deceased. The appellant submitted that they were victims of political enmity. The FIR was lodged nine days after the occurrence and the accusations were cooked up to victimize political opponents. Therefore, the trial court, on the basis of doubtful version of the prosecution case, awarded just 10 years of life imprisonment to MQM (H) leader.
