Degree cases University officials summoned
Lahore: : Justice Sheikh Azmat Saeed of the Lahore High Court (LHC) on Tuesday summoned the Azad Jammu and Kashmir University registrar and the controller on Nov 30 in an election petition against PML-N MNA Malik Riaz.
Asif Hashmi, the chairman of the Evacuee Trust Property Board (ETPB), who had lost to Riaz at NA-118, Lahore, challenged the authenticity of MNA's graduation degree.
Meanwhile, Justice Saeed also issued contempt of court notices to the Kasur education EDO for not implementing court orders regarding promotion of a stenographer.
Ghulam Sabir, the stenographer, petitioned that the district coordination officer had issued his promotion orders but the respondent EDO did not implement the same.
Subsequently, he said, he moved the LHC and obtained a direction for the respondent to comply with the promotion orders.
The petitioner said the EDO did not implement the court orders despite the lapse of several months.
He asked the court to initiate contempt of court proceedings on which the judge issued a notice to the respondent for Nov 30 and directed him to explain his position.
Meanwhile, an election tribunal of the Lahore High Court (LHC) has summoned the Islamia University Bahawalpur (IBU) registrar on Nov 27 in an election petition challenging the election of MPA Shaukat Manzoor Cheema.
Petitioner Ijaz Ahmad Sama, the runner-up candidate for PP-104, Gujranwala, says the respondent MPA had been found guilty of impersonation while taking the BA examination at the IUB.
Mr Sama, who is from the Pakistan People's Party, said a criminal case was also registered against Mr Cheema, a Pakistan Muslim League-N, and had been banned for taking exams for three years.
The petitioner's counsel maintained that the respondent suffered a pre-election disqualification and should be declared disqualified to hold the seat in the Punjab Assembly.
In another plea, the LHC election tribunal adjourned the hearing of the petition seeking disqualification of PML-Q MPA Walayat Shah Khagga after the petitioner's counsel concluded his arguments. The tribunal now will resume hearing on Nov 26.
Nazar Muhammad Fatyana, a defeated candidate from PP-220, Sahiwal, sought disqualification of the respondent accusing him of holding the fake degree of BA. The petitioner's counsel said the respondent obtained a degree of BA from Azad Jammu and Kashmir campus of Al Kher University, which was not recognised by the Higher Education Commission (HEC).
Also, LHC Justice Iqbal Hameedur Rehman has issued notices to federal and Punjab education secretaries on a petition of Christian representatives seeking insertion of a chapter on life of Jesus Christ (AS) in a book being taught to Christian students of class 9 and 10.
Dr Raja Nathaniel Gill, former chairman of Minorities' Advisory Council, Punjab, and Mary Anne Gill, Crimes Prevention International secretary general, filed the petition that the Christian students were being taught a book 'Ikhlaqiat' which contains history of sacred personalities of various faiths except the life of Jesus Christ (AS). They said this was discrimination with the Christians, the largest minority in Pakistan, and the students.
The judge after hearing arguments issued notices to respondents and directed them to file their replies by Nov 26. The judge also issued notice to Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education, Lahore chairman. Dawn
