Jamil Ahmad Malik, president of the POF Officers Union, was dismissed from service on the ground that while in service he indulged in politics.
Jamil Malik, who claimed to be the secretary general of the Communist Party of Pakistan, distributed on Wednesday the copies of the Supreme Court judgment in which it upheld his forced retirement. The judgment, he said, showed two sets of principles — one for the powerful, and the other for the powerless.
