LAHORE:The Lahore High Court (LHC) full bench while hearing petitions against illegal occupation of citizens’ land in Miani Sahib Graveyard has expressed annoyance over sealing of a citizen home despite a stay order and ordered immediately de-sealing it.

The bench presided over by Justice Ameer Bhatti heard the case here on Monday. Safdar Shaheen Peerzada, Shahid Maqbool and others’ counsels appeared in the court on behalf of the petitioners. The court reprimanded Miani committee legal adviser Hafiz Khalil for sealing the home of a citizen, Shahid Hussain, despite stay order and expressed strong concern for not submitting reply in contempt of court case since one year. The bench remarked: “This is your efficiency that you could not submit reply in one year.” The court while ordering for de-sealing the home of the citizen forthwith remarked that Miani Sahib Graveyard management needs not to evict anyone from his home. We will review the matter of effectiveness of Miani Sahib Ordinance or otherwise in the light of Supreme Court order. The bench adjourned the hearing on the petitions till January 13.
