During the hearing of the case related to the employment quota for those with visual impairment, the Lahore High Court (LHC) ordered that those suffering from the blindness will not be referred to as, disabled, rather they will be called ‘special persons.’
During the hearing, the high court had asked the people named in the case to submit their answers on the matter. The provincial government of Punjab was also directed by the high court to submit a reply on the issue.
The judge of the LHC remarked that a bad precedent was being set by allowing people to hold agitation and protest to seek justice rather than referring to the courts of the country.
The judge further remarked during the hearing that a new precedent now must be set so that people’s faith may be restored in the judicial system of Pakistan.
On the other hand, the federal government had also been asked by the Lahore High Court to submit its reply over the petition filed by the former Prime Minister of Pakistan Shahid Khaqan Abbasi for his production order.
