IHC Moved To Postpone Population Census In Fata Until Repatriation Of TDPs
March 15, 2017

ISLAMABAD, 15 March: A social activist from South Waziristan Agency has filed a writ petition under article 199 of the constitution in Islamabad High Court seeking postponement of the ongoing population and household census in Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) until the complete repatriation of the displaced tribesmen.
Samreena Khan Wazir head of the tribal students’ women wing filed the petition and requested to IHC to postpone the population and household census in the tribal regions, as there is fear of miscalculation as thousands of displaced people living in other parts of the country will miss in the census. “A large number of FATA people are still displaced living in various parts of the country, which is going to hinder the actual representation of FATA in census report,” she said in her writ. As per directions of Supreme Court (SC), the census process has to be completed within two months commencing on March 15; however, it is impossible to rehabilitate the TDPs to their respective areas in such a short period during the census, she said.
Expressing her reservation, she said, there are very high possibility of miscalculation of the tribal people which will deny people of FATA due share in NFC Award and representation in national, provincial assemblies and local bodies.
Therefore, she prayed that the intervention of this court for provision of any other relief that this court may deem appropriate in the circumstances.
It is pertinent to mention here that first phase of the Pakistan’s largest-ever 6th population census kicked off today in 63 districts of the country after a delay of 19 years. The second phase will be started from April 25.
