Amin Mohammad and others pleaded to the court to order the relevant authorities to implement the ordinance concerning employment of people with disabilities.
The petitioners submitted that on December 29, 1981 Disabled Persons (Employment & Rehabilitation) Ordinance in 1981 was promulgated for rehabilitation and welfare of disabled persons but the government had failed to enforce the right of disabled persons.
They said that it has been settled in the law that one percent quota would be reserved for the disabled persons but the federal as well as provincial government was denying such right to them.
