Islamabad, Mar 31(ANI): Pakistan's Supreme Court has ordered the National Database and Registration Authority ( NADRA) to address problems faced by Hindu women in obtaining Computerised National Identity Cards (CNICs), as it has affected three million Hindus in the country.

The three-member bench comprising Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry , Justice Khilji Arif Hussain and Justice Tariq Parvez was hearing of a human rights case about the denial of an identity card to a Hindu woman, Pram Sari Mai of Rahim Yar Khan.

Justice Chaudhary had earlier taken suo motu notice of a news report highlighting the problems faced by Mai, who was not issued a CNIC because her marriage was not registered, The Daily Times reports.

The woman had failed to get a passport to visit India even after paying a huge fee. (ANI)
