Application against non-compliance of SC ruling about protection of minoritiesMarch 16, 2015
KARACHI: An application against non-compliance of the Supreme Court’s ruling about protection of the minorities’ rights by the federal and provincial government was filed in the apex court’s Karachi registry.
NGO Justice Helpline president Nadeem Sheikh filed an application requesting the court to proceed against the federal and provincial authorities for failing to protect the minorities.
He pleaded to the court direct the government to make payment of compensation to victim families of the Yohana Abad incident.
In application, Nadeem submitted that the apex court had issued a landmark judgment regarding minorities’ rights, directing the government to form a special task force for the protection of worship places of minorities.
Had the government implemented the court’s judgment, the Yohana Abad incident could have been avoided, said the applicant, requesting the court take action against the authorities for failing to implement the judgment.
