Petition against secretaries, PTV dismissed

LAHORE (August 07 2007): The Lahore High Court (LHC) has dismissed a constitutional petition against the federal law and information secretaries and the Pakistan Television (PTV) managing director, accusing them of being responsible for killings in Jamia Hafza for allegedly provoking the inmates to stop surrendering after producing Maulana Abdul Aziz before media in Burqa (veil).

Amjad Abbas of Gujranwala filed the petition, saying that after the arrest of Maulana Abdul Aziz, Maulana Abdul Rasheed Ghazi was ready to surrender and agreed to settle the issue through dialogue, but the government deliberately resorted to violence.
