LAHORE - Justice Khurshid Anwar Bhinder of the Lahore High Court has disposed a petition challenging detention of Hafiz Saeed, Ameer Jamat-ud-Dawa, with directions to home secretary Punjab to decide within one week the representation made against his detention. Petitioner Memoona Saeed, wife of Hafiz Saeed, submitted that the government detained her husband only to please the US and India without giving any valid reason while he had no link with Mumbai attacks. She said on December 12, 2008 DCO Lahore issued detention orders for Hafiz's detention with a note that the reasons will be mentioned later. But later on January 10, 2009, Home Department Punjab again issued two-month detention orders without describing any justification. The petitioner pleaded that Jamat-ud-Dawa was purely a social welfare organisation and had been provided rehabilitation services to earthquake victims in Kashmir and NWFP. She stated that a representation was filed before the home secretary but no decision has been taken despite the lapse of one month while under the law it should be decided in 15 days. A law officer opposing the petition said that the petitioner could not approach the court against the detention of her husband, as the home department was the competent forum to redress her grievance. The law officer also asked the court to allow the home department one month time to decide the representation of the petitioner. However, the judge being disagreed with the argument directed the home department to decide on the representation within one week.
