Eminent Muslim jurists panel to study different Lokpal bills

By Pervez Bari

Bhopal: The Delhi-based Institute of Objective Studies (IOS) has formed a panel of five eminent jurists to study the provisions of different Lokpal bills, including the Jan Lokpal Bill, and suggest improvements, especially from the perspective of minorities and other weaker groups. The decision was taken at a meeting of 15 jurists on Sunday.

According to a Press release the five-member committee includes Justice A M Ahmadi, ex-Chief Justice of India, Chairman; Adv. Mushtaq Ahmad, Convenor; Mr. Y. H. Muchhala, Advocate Bombay High Court; Mr. S. M. Kazmi, ex-Chairman, UP Minority Commission and Prof. Faizan Mustafa, Vice Chancellor, National Law University, Orissa, all members.

Dr. Abusaleh Shariff, economist and member-secretary of Sachar Committee, has been assigned to provide "socio-economic" inputs to the committee. Dr. Shariff also happens to have a law degree, though he does not practices law.

IOS Chairman Dr. Mohammad Manzoor Alam speaking on the occasion reportedly said that a fuller view of things should be presented to the Standing Committee of Parliament to have a realistic piece of legislation on anti-corruption mechanism. Hence, the IOS move to have the bills re-examined by another panel of jurists.
