The Supreme Court’s three-member bench comprising Justice Gulzar Ahmed, Justice Faisal Arbab and Justice Ijazul Ahsan on Monday (Feb 11) during the hearing of a case pertaining to contempt of court case against two private schools, remarked that government may be nationalized or closed.
During the hearing, Justice Ijazul Ahsan said to Private school authorities “How did you have the audacity to term the court’s decision regarding hike in school fee “a draconian judgment”. Your letters to parents are in contempt of court.” “What kind of things do you write? We should close your schools and can even nationalise them. We can ask the government to handle the administrative affairs of your schools.”
The counsel of the private schools then said, “We apologies to the court. No such thing will happen again.” At this, Justice Gulzar said, “You can submit a written apology and we will take a look. We will get an audit done to check whether you have black or white money.”
The court then adjourned the hearing of the case for two weeks.
