SC seeks Lal Masjid case facts by May 24

Deputy attorney general requests bench to grant him time to go through police records to assist court in proper way.

May 15, 2012


The Supreme Court on Monday expressing displeasure with deputy attorney general’s response to its questions on Lal Masjid incident, ordered him to come prepared on May 24 to assist it with facts and records.

A three-judge bench headed by Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry resumed hearing of a number of identical petitions over Lal Masjid case. The deputy attorney general requested the bench to grant him time to go through police records to assist the court in a proper way.

The bench, after conducting proceedings for more than an hour, expressed its concern that lack of his assistance had wasted time. The bench questioned the police authorities and the DAG to apprise it about the record of any registered complaint prior to the launch of Lal Masjid Operation on July 3, 2007.

Impossible to understand why the SC is so worried about these fanatics and was SC sleeping when the episode of the Lal Mosque took place? Who says they had no weapons!We the ordinary people of Pakistan could see the display of weopans on the tv but the learned judges need more evidence.they are not satisfied and always released all these extreme elements but there is no justice for ordinary people or women who suffer in the hands of men like Mukhtaran Mai!!Sad state of our couts and our Lawyers who can slap the judges,beat the journalists and the police and no suo moto notice taken on that!!!!
