Reopening the Ghazi Ilmuddin case!!!!

Pak. Tribune

LAHORE: The Lahore High Court Chief Justice on Friday issued pre-admission notices to the federal and Punjab governments seeking assistance on whether or not the court could re-open the 82-year-old case of Ghazi Ilmuddin Shaheed.

He said the court needed to ascertain whether it had the jurisdiction to take up a case adjudicated before Pakistan.

Petitioner Imtiaz Rasheed Qureshi of the Save Judiciary Committee, had requested the court through his counsel, Barrister Farooq Hasan, to set aside the verdict given in 1929.
Ilmuddin had been sentenced to death by the LHC for killing a Hindu publisher who had printed a book insulting and ridiculing Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).
