KARACHI - Sindh High Court (SHC) on Friday issued notice to the Federal Ministry, Sindh Home Department, Deputy Attorney General (DAG) and Advocate General Sindh to submit their comments about arrangements for the Internally Displaced Persons (IDP)s. The division bench of SHC comprising Justice Mushir Alam and Justice Safdar Bhutto held hearing over three separate petitions moved by President of True Line International Foundation (TLIF) Naeem Khan, Syed Iqbal Kazmi and Maulvi Iqbal Haider regarding the IDPs. Syed Iqbal Kazmi submitted that under the Article 15, the IDPs could not be intercepted to move anywhere in the country as they are nationals of the country. Whereas, the registration of IDPs is not necessary during their movement to any part of the country including Karachi as well. In case the government is insisting for the registration of the IDPs, than their registration must be under the law by providing them PRC and domiciles of that place where they are being shifted. Kazmi said that due to the registration of the IDPs, ethnicity would be promoted among the people of the country as well as the IDPs. Mentioning the directives issued by the Supreme Court of Pakistan over the former Prime Minster Mian Nawaz Sharifs case in 2004, and present Federal Minister Babar Khan Ghauris case in 1999, that the Pakistani nationals could not be intercepted by the authorities to move anywhere in the country. Meanwhile, another petitioner, Maulvi Iqbal Haider, opposed it and said that in the guise of IDPs, militants could enter Sindh and in Karachi also. The registration of IDPs must be initiated while providing them shelters here. After hearing the arguments from both sides, the court has summoned the respondents seeking their comments in the next hearing to be fixed later. The plaintiffs pleaded to accommodate the IDPs in New Haji Camp, situated in Sultanabad, Kemari Town Karachi, where at least 50,000 people can be accommodated. Moreover, another division bench SHC comprising of Justice Ather Mohammad Saeed and Justice Arshad Siraj Memon ordered to provide appointment letters to 384 lecturers till June 11. The SHC bench conducted the hearing over the contempt of court appeal moved by the lecturers by submitting that despite of issuing orders by the court, the Sindh Public Service Commission (SPSC) has still not provided them appointment letters. Assistant Advocate General Sindh, Abdul Fateh Malik, appeared before the court to submit the comments on behalf of the Sindh government. He told the court that provincial government has moved to Supreme Court against the verdict of SHC. The court maintained that until the apex court would not issue the stay-order, the provincial government has to follow the direction of the high court. The Assistant Advocate General requested to grant further time to submit the comments which the court approved. The petitioners submitted that after the advertisement was published by SPSC in newspapers, they had applied there and were selected on merit. But, after fulfilling all the criteria, they had not been issued appointment letters so far.
