  1. Honorable Speaker National Assembly of Pakistan.
    Kindly help for we deprived old aged PTCL pensioners. Almighty ALLAH Bless You.

    GOP! PLEASE SAVE SOULS OF PTCL PENSIONERS.

    1- The present PTCL (Company) had been paying regularly all the pension benefits to its pensioners since 1st January, 1996 up to June, 2010 and suddenly stopped giving from July, 2010 unlawfully, and illegally in spite of facts that the Federal Government is a guarantor of all the service and pension terms and conditions.
    2- The Supreme court judgment dated 7th October, 2011 by a bench of three justices in CA 239 to 241/2011 clear cut in all respect in favor of PTCL pensioners was already published but the then PPP government did not care a bit and the cruel action taken by PTCL continued.
    .3- The Federal Government has totally failed in providing legally and lawfully justified pension benefits to his PTCL pensioners and now has hidden behind the S.C.cases filed by PTCL with its own consent. More than 50,000 including widow old even above75 years old aged pensioners have been suffering for the last SIX years. A large number of deaths during this period have occurred for which the Govt. and state institutions are fully responsible and answerable to almighty ALLAH.
    JUDICIARY! PTCL PENSIONERS BEGGING JUSTICE IN THEIR LIVES.
    1- Would the Supreme Court have given its judgment dated 07-10-2011 in CA239 to 241/2011 finally once for all or at least affixed the time limit for the high courts to decide the cases but Alas, it had not been done. No time limit was exploited by the cruel corporate sector to put poor pensioners to endless torture till they die.
    2- Three single and double benches decisions from Islamabad high courts and Peshawar high courts dated 21/12.2011,17/03/2014 and 03/07/2014 respectively have been announced in favor of PTCL pensioners. All these decisions spread over four years were given in the light of above noted judgment dated 07th October, 2011.
    Apart from these decisions the Supreme Court’s own decisions on PTCL appeal case dated 23-08-2013 and in its review case on 06-12-2013 in CP-717 & 718/2013 are also on record but PTCL brutal authorities did not care a bit. Supreme Court final decision on 12-06-2015 where all the PTCL filed cases has been dismissed is also on record.
    3- This simple civil case could be decided within short time with yes or no in the light of above said Supreme court judgment and decisions but it was prolonged for about five years. Irony of fate of PTCL pensioners is that it has been even still pending with S.C for the decision of another filed review appeal. Allah knows when this review appeal will be hard. Decisions against appeal and its review appeal already given and again review against another appeal has been filed now. Allah knows when this chain will be come to end.
    4- Now I, living in 79 years age, have lost my hope. It is said, “justice delayed is justice denied” but what to say when justice gets disappeared. What will the name be given to the toll of deaths of old deprived PTCL pensioners during these SIX years not ended yet – ECONOMICAL MURDER OF PTCL PENSIONERS BY GOVERNMENT OR BY state institutions OR BY all? Requested to Chief Justice, S.C of Pakistan order to listen on daily basis.
    Yours Obediently,
    Nisar Ahmed Jawed, House No.90D-1, Nespak Housing Society, Lahore. (042 35968019)
