HC stays Hajj-2012 selection list
D A RASHID
Srinagar, July 18: Jammu and Kashmir High Court Wednesday issued notice to the state government asking it to file reply to the petition challenging the selection list of Khudamul Hujjaj-2012. The Court directed the government to abstain from operating the list till next date of hearing.
The Court asked senior Additional Advocate General, A M Magray to accept the notice on behalf of the state government and Jammu and Kashmir State Hajj Committee and file the reply.
Court of Justice Mansoor Ahmad Mir stayed the selection list of Khudam-ul-Hujjaj after counsel for the petitioner Jahangir Iqbal Ganie pleaded that the selection list has been “prepared in violation of guidelines and norms mentioned in the notice vis-à-vis selection.”
He informed the court that the petitioner filed application form along with all the requisite certificates and had performed exceptionally well in the interview but he was dropped.
He argued that the respondents lacked eligibility prescribed in the notice and the selection authorities threw the guidelines and norms to winds by selecting ineligible candidates as Khudam-ul-Hujjaj.
He argued that that the respondents along with the application form have only submitted the orientation certificates and copies of the passport. They have not furnished NOC from the concerned department.
He submitted it was “indispensable to file good conduct certificate required in terms of the notice by virtue of which the applications were invited for the selection of Khudam-ul- Hujjaj.”
The counsel argued that the conditions incorporated in the notice regarding eligibility for the selection of Khudam-ul- Hujjaj were in sync with the conditions prescribed by the Ministry of External Affairs for undertaking the process of selection, which have been violated by the selection authority.
