SC Disposes of Kashmala’s plea after her Son was Kicked Off from College for a Fight

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

as violation of fundamental rights had not been found in it. He said there was a remedy of writ jurisdiction of high court under Article 199 of the Constitution available to her to challenge the college’s act.
