Gujarat High Court Writ Petitions Update: 09th MAY 2014

My advocates filed eight Writ Petitions before the Gujarat High Court being Special Civil Application Nos. 7289 to 7296 of 2014 on 8.5.2014. The earlier petitions being Special Civil Applications No. 5478 to 5485 of 2014 were filed challenging orders passed by Assistant Charity Commissioners of 7 districts and the Gujarat Wakf Board. The petitions filed on 8.5.2014 challenge orders passed by the Assistant Charity Commissioners of 7 other districts and allege a large scale violation of the principles of natural justice on the part of the authorities who have without giving a hearing and without issuing notices to me passed orders permitting Shehzada Mufaddal Saifuddin’s name to be entered as sole trustee of more than 125 public trusts. The matters were listed for hearing today.

The Hon’ble High Court of Gujarat has passed an order issuing notices to Shehzada Mufaddal Saifuddin and to the Assistant Charity Commissioners of 8 districts and has fixed the matters on 20.6.2014, the date on which the earlier petitions are also fixed.
