LAHORE: The Lahore High Court (LHC) has upheld the order of a lower court regarding registration of an FIR against prime minister, Punjab chief minister and other federal and provincial ministers on a complaint of Minhajul Quran in Model Town shooting case.

The sessions court in Lahore had issued a verdict on the petition filed by MuQ, ordering the provincial government to have the case registered on the complaint of Minhajul Quran.

The federal ministers, Pervaiz Rashid and Khawa Asif, filed appealed in the LHC challenging the sessions court verdict.

Upholding the order of sessions court, the LHC dismissed the petition.

Talking to media, Mansoor Afridi, counsel of Minhajul Quran, said that the truth would prevail and case would be registered over Model Town tragedy.

Dismissal of the government’s petition has proved that the courts are independently dispensing justice, he said.

The government can now only move Supreme Court to challenge the verdict, Afridi added. -Samaa

It is a good decision. Question however remains, the FIR will be registered or not? In my opinion, the Punjab government is sinking deeper into the legal mess. FIR or not, the matter has already come into the notice of the Session Court, and now High Court. These proceedings have already become the part of the record now.

Due legal process must be supported and justice meted out without any consideration except fairness.
