In its judgement, a three-member bench of the Apex Court led by the then Chief Justice Tassaduq Hussain Jillani and comprising Justice Sheikh Azmat Saeed and Justice Mushir Alam directed the federal government to constitute a National Council for minorities’ rights.

The bench also ordered the establishment of a Special Police Force to protect the places of worship of minorities.
