The controversy began in April this year when 12 students, including Kashmala’s son Azlan Khan, were involved in a minor scuffle during mock exams for O-levels. Taking disciplinary action, the school decided that all 12 boys would not be allowed admission to A-levels.
But later out of the 12 boys, only Azlan had been refused admission to the next class.
Kashmala Tariq, a former member of the National Assembly of Pakistan, and is currently serving as the federal ombudsperson for protection against harassment of women at the workplaces, had moved a complaint against Principal Thompson to Punjab Governor Chaudhry Sarwar who reportedly sought a report on the issue from Thompson.
After a probe was launched against Principal Thompson, he resigned from his post, saying he could not “work in such circumstances”.
Kashmala Tariq had also filed a petition in the Supreme Court (SC) against the “targeting of her son by the school’s management”. But gets a blow from Supreme Court of Pakistan as Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar on Saturday rejected her application.
CJP observed that he could take up the matter as a human right case
