Mohatta Palace to be turned into girls medical college

The Sindh High Court ordered on Wednesday for Mohatta Palace, which is now named as Qasar-e-Fatima to be turned into a girls medical college including a hostel.

A plaque should be installed with the names of legal heirs on it, the court said. A trust should be established to look after the affairs of the medical college and the hospital, the court said.

The development came during the hearing of the case of the distribution of Quaid-e-Azam and Fatima Jinnah’s residence.

The parties have nominated Dr. Abdul Bari, Dr. Adeeb Rizvi, Justice (retd) Sarmad Jalal Usmani and Justice (retd) Faheem Siddiqui and Amir Ali of Indus Hospital to run the college.

The consent of the trustees will also be communicated at the next hearing, the parties said.

Consent will be sought from all individuals to join the trust, the court said.

The court ordered to compile a list of goods in Mohta Palace.

Court seeks details of income from Mehta Palace in 30 years from Sindh government’s culture department.

 

The court sought suggestions from the parties for financial redressal of the petitioner’s fifty-year long pursuit.
