islamabad - An application was filed in the Supreme Court yesterday for implementation of the apex court’s order, dated 02-10-2007, in the case of extrajudicial killings in Lal Masjid and Jamia Hafsa.

A three-judge bench, headed by Justice Ejaz Afzal Khan and comprising Justice Sardar Tariq Masood and Justice Faisal Arab, will take up the case tomorrow (Thursday).

Tariq Asad Advocate has filed the petition under Order XXXIII, Rule 6 of Supreme Court and urged the court to direct the federal government to implement its order. Tariq had represented Lal Masjid in extrajudicial killings in the mosque and Jamia Hafsa.

The apex court on October 2, 2007 had ordered the federal government to register an FIR over defiling of the Holy Quran and killings of innocent persons in Lal Masjid and Jamia Hafsa.

The court had also ordered for paying the compensation/diyat to the heirs of deceased, constructing Jamia Hafsa within one year and making interim arrangements of education and boarding and lodging within one month.

The top court had also directed that all the necessary expenditure on the education of the students such as their books, meal, boarding and lodging including the salaries of the teachers shall be borne by the government.

Tariq Asad said when the government did not implement the Supreme Court’s order then he filed contempt of court petition against the secretary ministry of interior, chairman Capital Development Authority and the chief commissioner of ICT on July 25, 2008, which, too, had never been fixed for hearing in the last four and half years.

He stated that the case was fixed on different dates but, unfortunately, it was not decided though a judicial commission appointed to find out the facts had submitted its report.

Tariq said it is a matter of constitutional principle when rights are transgressed, the remedy must be provided; when a legal injury is caused by reason of violation of any constitutional right then the relief which meets the ends of justice cannot be refused.
