LAHORE - Justice Mian Saqib Nisar of the Lahore High Court on Wednesday dismissed private schools petition seeking security for the protection of children, observing that the private schools were charging heavy fees from parents and they (schools) should make security arrangements on their own. Everything should not be left on government, every citizen should play his due role for the betterment of society. I would impose fine if such frivolous petitions are filed in future, the judge remarked while dismissing the petition at preliminary stage. Adeeb Javedani, chairman private schools owners association, had filed the petition, arguing that 65,000 schools were functioning in the country while the government had passed an order to close them down for an indefinite period owning to security threats. He pointed out that only those schools had been allowed to open that were complying with governments instructions about security measures. He said the schools were instructed to erect boundary walls up to 8-feet-high, lay barbered wire on walls, install walk-through gates at the entry and exit points and provide metal detectors to security guards. He was of the view that private schools were unable to bear such heavy expenses and the government should provide security to all private institutions.
