Islamabad: Sardar khan Niazi is the actual owner and Chief Editor of Daily Pakistan. According to relevant laws in Pakistan Sardar Khan Niazi has the actual title of Daily Pakistan and no other person can publish any newspaper with the name of Daily Pakistan. For a profound understanding I deem it wise to give a brief about the legal position.
1. It is also pertinent to mention here that according to Article 10 (2) B of PRESS, NEWSPAPERS, NEWS AGENCEIS AND BOOKS REGISTRATION ORDINANCE, 2002
ORDINANCE XCVIII OF 2002, the person having the oldest declaration always have a better title and no one can publish anything in that name. And you are well aware of the fact that declaration of Daily Pakistan Quetta is the oldest one and SK Niazi is in possession of that declaration. For a profound understanding it is being reproduced here: “10(2) (b) the title of the newspaper proposed to be published is the same as the title of any newspaper already being published in the same language at any place in the country, not being a newspaper of different periodicity published by the same publisher or another edition of the same newspaper published from another place;”
2. Daily Pakistan Islamabad, Karachi, Muzaffarabad, Rawalpindi and Quetta is being published by Sardar Khan Niazi.
3. As for as the issue of Daily Pakistan Multan is concerned ,the same bench of Honorable Supreme Court on the same date was pleased to grant leave to appeal in our case CP 1091-L/2006 titled Sardar Khan Niazi vs DCO, Multan.
4. Now come to the Daily Pakistan Lahore. Readers would be well aware of the fact that it is sub judice in LHC (DB) and is not finally decided yet. On all reasonable assessments Mr Sardar Khan Niazi is about to win this case as its once original owners Bhattis have admitted in written in the court all payment for Daily Pakistan including Daily Pakistan Lahore was made by Sardar Khan Niazi. The case is in redline and is presumed to be decided very soon.
Therefore it can be summonsed that none other than Sardar Khan Niazi is the actual owner of Daily Pakistan.
