Islamabad, Mar 31(ANI): Pakistan's Supreme Court has ordered the National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) to address problems faced by Hindu women in obtaining Computerised National Identity Cards (CNICs), as it has affected three million Hindus in the country.
The three-member bench comprising Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry, Justice Khilji Arif Hussain and Justice Tariq Parvez was hearing of a human rights case about the denial of an identity card to a Hindu woman, Pram Sari Mai of Rahim Yar Khan.
Justice Chaudhary had earlier taken suo motu notice of a news report highlighting the problems faced by Mai, who was not issued a CNIC because her marriage was not registered, The Daily Times reports.
The woman had failed to get a passport to visit India even after paying a huge fee. (ANI)
