KARACHI - The Sindh Human Rights Department is considering to prepare a proposal for Federal Government to put ban on holding of parallel courts in the name of Jirga in the country. Nadia Gabol, Provincial Minister for Human Rights said this while talking to local Human Rights activists at her office. She observed that the said proposal would also ensure initiation of legal action against all those responsible for giving unconstitutional and unlawful judgements. "If necessary, the Jirga should be restricted to decide the matters pertaining to domestic issues on the pattern of Punchayat Committees only. The matter/issues pertains to Pakistan Panel Code (PPC) and Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC) should not be allowed, at any cost, to be decided by the Jirga", she maintained. While taking cognizance of a new item, appearing in some sections of press regarding decision/judgement of two separate Jirgas held in district Shikarpur, she expressed serious concern over it. According to the contents of the news items, a Jirga had given minor girls in marriage to over aged men to settle a dispute over Karo-kari between two families. The Minister Human Rights also issued directive to District Police Officer (DPO) Shikarpur to hold a discrete inquiry into the alleged matter and take action as per law.
