LAHORE A Canadian origin Hindu mother on Thursday won the custody battle of her three and a half years old Muslim son in the Lahore High Court, but her fate to take the kid back to her country still hangs in the balance because of a travel expenses dispute. A bench comprising Justice Asad Munir provided another opportunity for the parties to sit together and iron out their differences by Friday (today) over travel expenses and the matter how the father will meet his son in Canada and how the mother will bring him up. Roshani Desai, a 28-year-old dentist, who had come all the way alone from her native city, Montreal Canada, appeared much satisfied with the court decision after getting custody of the child who was seen busy with mobile set of her mother most of the time in the court room. To a question after court proceedings, Rashni appreciated the judicial system in Pakistan and said her perceptions about the country had altogether changed after she was given her right. She said Pakistan is not at all what outside world perceived her. Roshni has fought legal battle for the custody of Azan Sohail Niazi who was born out of extra-marital relations with 28-year-old Jahanzeb Niazi who hails from a Sialkot-based family living in Canada over the last two decades. On the petitioners behalf, Advocate Aftab Ahmad Bajwa made submissions to convince the court that a court in Canada had already decided the matter in favour of his client but Jahanzeb. He further informed the court that the respondent, who was allowed to see his son in routine, took the kid to Pakistan and had been keeping himself out of contacts with his client, the police and the judicial authorities in Canada since the last month. The counsel said Roshni had admitted that the kid was extra-marital (illegitimate) yet the Canadian law provided him all respects which was not possible in Pakistan particularly when father of Jahanzeb straightaway disowned the child and did not want to keep him as his family member. Having come to the rostrum on the court call, the petitioner solemnly undertook to raise the child as Muslim and would herself convert to Islam for his sake if need arose at any point of time. She said she was studying Islam and wanted to covert to this religion after getting its understanding and promised the court to admit the child to an Islamic centre to let him remain in touch with Islamic teachings. Her counsel, on the strength of a Scottish girl Maggy case, who was handed over to her foreign Christian mother by the Supreme Court, LHC case of an Uzbek mother in 1995.
