SHC orders to turn Fatima Jinnah’s house into a medical college

The Sindh High Court (SHC) has sent the directives to turn Qasr-e-Fatima, the residence of Fatima Jinnah, into a medical college.

The orders were released as a result of the petition by Fatima Jinnah’s cousin, Hussain G. Walji filed in the year 1971.

According to reports, the SHC has ordered that a trust should be established to manage the activities of the medical college, and should also include separate hostels for male and female students.

On the basis of the mutual agreement among all stakeholders, the court has also suggested title name for the trust, which includes Dr. Abdul Bari of Indus Hospital, Sindh Institute of Urology and Transplantation’s (SIUT) Dr. Adib Rizvi, Justice (retd) Sarmad Jalal Osmany, and Justice (retd) Fahim Siddiqui, and has directed the authorities to seek approval in this regard.

In the previous hearings, the court had banded authorities from using the term ‘Mohatta Palace’ for Fatima Jinnah’s property. The name ‘Qasr-e-Fatima’ was suggested for the property by the court.

The SHC also ordered the authorities to provide the record of income generated from the property in the last 30 years.
