Vested Property Act and the minorities’ tale of woes

The historic India-Pakistan War continued for 17 days from Sept 6 to Sept 22, 1965 that ended with Tashkent declaration. During the war, Pakistan promulgated Defense of Pakistan Ordinance (Ord. no XX111 of 1965) followed by Defense of Pakistan Rules under this ordinance. Under these rules, the government made an executive order on 9 September 1965 named Enemy Property (Custody and Registration) Order II of 1965 that eventually came to be known as the Enemy Property Act. India was declared as enemy country and thus, all interests of enemy, individual properties, firms, companies, lands and buildings should be taken over as enemy property.
