LAHORE: A petition has been filed in the Lahore High Court challenging the federal interior ministry order to expel Turkish teachers from Pakistan.

In his plea, Naveed Suhail Malik stated the sudden expulsion order came when Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan was visiting the country and appeared to be an appeasement of his demands. He said Turkish teachers had been serving Pakistan for decades and their stay was did not violate any law of the land.

Arguing that Pakistan had nothing to do with the politics of another country and must protect its own future generations, he requested the court to declare the interior ministry’s order null and void.
