Chief Justice of Pakistan, Justice Iftikhar M. Chaudhary
ISLAMABAD - The Supreme Court on Wednesday issued notices to Attorney General of Pakistan and Presidents of Supreme Court Bar Association and Sindh High Court Bar Association to appear before the court on Friday (tomorrow) and assist in Karachi target killing incidents. A five-member special bench headed by Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry and comprising Justice Shakirullah Jan, Justice Nasir-ul-Mulk, Justice Tariq Parvez and Justice Ghulam Rabbani would hear the case. Attorney General Maulvi Anwar-ul-Haq was further directed to submit a comprehensive report about the incidents, which should be based on the material, collected from the Federal and provincial law-enforcement and intelligence agencies.

The Sindh Chief Secretary and PPO through Advocate General Sindh were ordered to submit details of the incidents such as copies of the daily situation reports duly prepared by the concerned police officers for their perusal and FIRs and other material, filed in order to assess violation of the fundamental rights of the citizens. The Chief Justice has taken suo moto notice of the unabated killings in Karachi on a statement of Allama Tahir-ul-Qadri, which appeared in an Urdu daily urging the CJP to take action on Karachi situation. Upon the Chief Justice’s directions, CDs/DVD were received from different channels and office submitted a detailed note. After going through the office note, the Chief Justice passed the following order:
I have gone through above noted facts, reported in the print/flashed in the electronic media, perusal whereof presents a bleak/dismal picture of bloodshed, arson, kidnapping/abduction for ransom, widespread violence, illegal collection of money (Bhatta) from traders, which prima facie are violative of Articles 9, 14, 15, 18 and 24 of the Constitution. Prima facie, the Executive has failed to protect the life, liberty, dignity, property and freedom of the general public, as it’s manifested in the above note/reports. Therefore, let this note be converted into petition under Article 184(3) of the Constitution”.
Earlier, the Human Rights Cell of the SC submitted a detailed note regarding common problems being faced by the residents of Karachi. The office note also mentioned that the observers, analysts and anchorpersons have expressed different views about the causes of this catastrophe. One view is that different groups like MQM, PPP and ANP in order to establish their hegemony, have restored to clashes and target killings; another view attributes interference of foreign powers like America, Israhell and India to the creation of this tragic situation; some say that it is due to terrorism; according to some the situation is aggravating due to ethnic and sectarian problems; some of them think that Karachi being hub of economic, social, political and cultural activities is under fire because the enemies of Pakistan want to prove that Pakistan is a failed State in spite of being a nuclear power.
Recovery of large number of bodies daily; the frequency of the street crime; and brutality and heinousness of the offences; passivity of government functionaries; gangs involved in money extortion; nefarious and bloody activities of land mafia and drug mafia, damage to valuable properties of the citizens; and shifting of capital from Pakistan to Malaysia and Bangladesh (as reported in some clippings), transfer of bodies from Karachi to the places of their origins in different parts of the country causing stir and harassment in the minds of people of such areas, provide substantial evidence that Karachi has reached the verge of destruction causing threat to the very stability of Pakistan”.
