Why was Liaquat National Library turned into a rest house?

KARACHI, Sept 26: The government of Sindh and the City District Government Karachi (CDGK) were put on notice by a division bench of the Sindh High Court (SHC) comprising Justice Maqbool Baqar and Justice Syed Mehmood Alam Rizvi in a case seeking the restoration of Liaquat National Library (LNL).

The orders came during the hearing of a constitutional petition filed by Zafar Qureshi, a member of Al-Qanoon Trust through counsel Islam Hussain. The petitioner maintained that LNL was a national treasure and contained a number of historical manuscripts, a large number of books and other record in the form of films etc. which served as reference material for researchers.

It was maintained that during the recent monsoons, sewerage water entered the building and damaged valuable books. Instead of saving the national treasure, the state functionaries sold the books and LNL, among a handful of libraries in the city, was converted into a rest house for officers. A number of government offices were also established there illegally, the petitioner maintained, praying the court to restore it as a library again.

The bench issued pre-admission notices to the Sindh government and CDGK for a date to be fixed later. Daily Times
