LAHORE - Government agencies had prepared incorrect reports about Jamaat ud Dawa and its leaders as these reports were made after four months of their detention while nothing happened what was revealed in these reports, the Lahore High Court observed while releasing a detained judgment. Government had no evidence against JuD leaders to substantiate its allegation that they have links with Al-Qaeda or involved in any anti-state activity except the 'bald allegations' levelled by Indian lobby that they were involved in Mumbai attacks, a full bench ruled. The full bench headed by Justice Ijaz Ahmad Chaudhry also include Justice Hasnat Ahmad Khan and Justice Zubdat-ul-Hussain through a short-order on June 02 last had ordered immediate release of Jamat-ud-Dawa's Chief Hafiz Muhammad Saeed and Col (r) Nazir Ahmad. The full bench in its detailed judgment on the habeas corpus petition challenging detention of JD's leaders observed that the material provided by the government to the court "in-chamber" against the petitioners was mostly based on reports of intelligence agencies which had been obtained after the four month of their detention. Moreover, the said reports found incorrect as nothing happened which was apprehended in the reports. It further observed that many other reports of intelligence agencies were obtained during the pendency of the petition apparently to cover up the lacunas, but there was no solid evidence or source to supplement the reports. "As regard to the contention of Attorney General of Pakistan that the petitioners are being blamed to be involved in Mumbai attacks, we have observed that not a single document has been brought on the record that JuD or the petitioners were involved in the said incident." "As far as the allegation in UN Resolution that Hafiz Saeed and Zaki-ud-Din had links with Al-Qaeda is concerned, the court ruled that superior court in Memoona Saeed vs Government of Punjab (PLD-2007 Lahore-128) had already held that there was no evidence against JuD for its links with Al-Qaeda," the bench remarked. The judges also wrote that security laws and anti terrorism laws of Pakistan were silent about Al-Qaeda as terrorists' organisation. About the legality of detention orders issued against the petitioners, the bench observed that according to Article 10 (5) of the constitution it was mandatory upon the detaining authority to provide grounds of detention within 15 days. But the detaining authority made clear violation of express provisions of the constitution, which deprived the petitioners to assail their detention before the competent forum and also to know the allegations against them. Even the grounds of allegations allegedly communicated to the petitioners were not meant for providing to them, but these were only prepared to submit before the review board for seeking further detention of the petitioners. "We have found that this violation of law alone is sufficient to declare the detention of the petitioners as illegal as it was mandatory. As far as the jurisdiction of 'Review Board' is concerned the full bench observed that the status of review board was of recommendatory body and its order could be reviewed in writ petition as ruled by the Supreme Court in Haider Bux Jatoi's case (PLD 1969). So far as UNO's resolution was concerned the detention cannot be maintained by relying upon it as detention was even not desired thereby.
