Supreme Court of Pakistan (SCP) Chief Justice (CJ) Justice Gulzar Ahmed has expressed his dissatisfaction with the probe style of the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA).

According to the 24News HD TV channel, during a hearing of a case related to the rights of minorities on Friday, CJP Gulzar said that the whole country was suffering from instability due to FIA’s probe-style.

Justice Gulzar said the FIA was setting a trap in the name of investigation to find out how many ‘fish’ (People as suspect) would be caught.

The CJP Gulzar also raised the question about the action taken by the FIA in the cases of Jain Mandir and Neela Gunbad in Lahore.

He has ordered the FIA to file the details with evidence of the case of the possession of Karachi Dharamshala.

On Friday, a three-member bench headed by CJ Gulzar heard the suo motu notice on the rights of minorities in the Supreme Court.

Hindu Council Patron in Chief Ramesh Kumar appeared before the court and said that a commercial plaza is being constructed on the land of Dharamshala in Fazal Town Karachi.

Evacuee Trust Property Board (ETPB) Chairman told the SC that Dharamshala was old and its land belonged to the board so there may be constructions on it.

On this, the CJP asked, "Should all the old buildings be demolished like this (Dharamshala)?" He said the Dharamshala established in 1932 could not be preserved in its original condition.

During the hearing, Ramesh Kumar said that there are no facilities for minorities in government hospitals in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.

The Chief Justice summoned KP Chief Secretary to the rostrum and said that there are no facilities for ordinary citizens in KP hospitals, adding that he has a fear that soon KP hospitals will become five-star hotels.

The Supreme Court has directed the KP Chief Secretary to submit a detailed report on the condition of all government hospitals in the province and adjourned the hearing for a month.
