The dead, departed and hated government had a penchant for defying, ignoring or simply by-passing superior court verdicts. In Farooq Naik they had an expert in this art, if we can call it this. Let us hope the PML-N government faithfully implements court verdicts. As one knows more about oneself than anybody else, I am writing in the hope that the new government will get court verdicts implemented regardless of whom they relate to. After being denied a portion of my pension by the International Islamic University in violation of the Ordinance, under which it was set up, and the relevant statutes governing my pension, the Supreme Court finally got my pension restored, after a long hard ‘battle’ of over nine years. While my pension was paid to me, those responsible for the delay were not punished, in accordance with the judgment of the learned court, and my repeated request to the highest level in the University, to get the other portion of the verdict implemented yielded no results. In fact the Rector of the University did not even have the courtesy to reply to my letter.Another matter of illegal appointments that were made in the University, went unattended to, and a request for being provided details of appointments in the University was denied, in complete violation of the Freedom of Information Act, it was rejected as if it related to Pakistan' security or its nuclear weapons. The Rector of the University chose to remain a silent spectator.There are superannuated persons serving in the University in complete violation of the Supreme Court verdict in this regard. I am fully aware of my rights and can go to court on contempt charges against the University in this matter and with regard that things move slowly in this country. Through these columns I call upon the new government to sort these matters out. Incidentally, one of the senior-most superannuated persons serving in the University is closely related to a very senior PML-N leader and this is a test case for the party's government. JAHANZEB KHAN, Peshawar, June 28.
