PIL for cancellation of Yasin Malik's passport dismissed

Chandigarh, Feb 15: The Punjab and Haryana high court on Thursday dismissed a public interest litigation (PIL) seeking directions to the home ministry for cancellation of passport of Yasin Malik, chairman of the Jammu & Kashmir Liberation Front, for his alleged anti-national activities.
 The division bench headed by Chief Justice AK Sikri refused to entertain the petition on jurisdictional grounds and directed the petitioner, Pradeep Sharma, to move courts at either Jammu & Kashmir or Delhi pertaining to his grievance.
 In his petition, Sharma had submitted that the activities of Malik and other separatist leaders of Jammu & Kashmir were against the unity and integrity of the country.
 While referring the pictures appeared in the media where Malik was seen sharing dais with Hafiz Saeed, the petitioner had sought the high court's intervention to issue directions for initiating criminal proceedings against Malik for treason, treachery and other anti-national activities.
 Directions were also sought to the home ministry for immediate withdrawal or cancellation of the passport of Malik.
 "The ministry of home affairs should impose a blanket ban on the visit of the separatist leaders to Pakistan, who by doing so not only involve themselves in anti-national activities, but also bring Hawala money into the country thereby endangering the unity and integrity of India for the past many years," the petition stated.
