The Bombay High Court on Tuesday directed the Union Government, not to take any coercive action or steps for deporting a Pakistani national back to his country, until his application for Indian citizenship is decided upon. Petitioner, Asif Karadia has been living in India along with his family, for the last 49 years.

A division bench also asked the Union government to in six weeks take a decision on the application for citizenship moved by the petitioner, Asif Karadia.

Advocate Sujay Kantawala appearing for petitioner argued that no decision is taken on his application for citizenship.

Karadia's father was born in undivided India at Sidhpur in Gujarat and moved to Mumbai in 1942. In May 1962, he married a woman of Indian citizenship who had migrated to Pakistan before partition. She came to India under a Pakistani passport for marriage. She then travelled to Karachi for delivery. While she returned to India after her child was born on April 19, 1965, no separate passport was issued to the infant.
