Despite difficulties interactive facility will prevail at the end. Today’s Muslim world is ruled by secrets of the state. Internet is virtually owned by state.

Federal Service Tribunal

My case of illegal termination of my services from PNCB (Pakistan Narcotics Control Board renamed as Anti Narcotics Force) was heard by Federal Service Tribunal. Chairman of FST was Brig. Sardar Abdul Rashid Khan in 1980-84. I asked for self-pleading as I couldn’t afford expensive lawyers to protect me from Narcotics Mafia. As no written orders were delivered to me, I requested Director Law Mr. Parvez Rehman and his Supreme Court lawyer to tell me why I was terminated. They said I didn’t perform night duty on certain date.

I asked for any other reason for my termination and there was no answer. The Hon. Chairman offered apologies for the tribulations I confronted during termination period and said I should meet with Chairman PNCB. I met him He said he was going to
