    'CJP does not have the right to humiliate judges,' says IHC's Justice Shaukat Aziz

    Justice Shaukat Aziz Siddiqui on Friday appealed to the chief justice of Pakistan (CJP) not to pass personal or derogatory comments against judges of other courts, saying that all judges are equally worthy of respect.

    The Islamabad High Court (IHC) judge said that while CJP Mian Saqib Nisar has the right to set aside, modify or uphold the verdicts of other judges, he does not have the right to humiliate them.

    Judges who are ridiculed by the CJP will be bound to respond to the comments, which will be damaging to the judicial institution, Justice Siddiqui added.

    The high court judge made the comments during hearing of a case regarding encroachments in the capital, in which lawyer Raja Inam Ameen Mihas argued that in a case regarding private school fees — which was heard by Justice Siddiqui — the apex court had upheld the status quo and remanded the case back to the IHC.

    ARTICLE CONTINUES AFTER AD
    Earlier, Justice Siddiqui had restrained private schools from collecting fees during summer vacations. However, a lawyer petitioned the Supreme Court on Thursday arguing that the IHC had passed a restraining order while assuming suo motu powers even though they are not vested to high courts.

    In response, Justice Nisar had remarked that the "order [of the private school fee case] shows the mindset of the author judge", and remanded the case back to the IHC.

    When reminded of the CJP's remarks during today's hearing, Justice Siddiqui said he would like to convey to Justice Nisar that all judges are equally respectable, learned and dignified personalities. He added that while the CJP has the authority to overturn judgements passed by other judges, he did not, however have the power to humiliate other judges.

    If CJP can't then who can? Judges are not above the law and not some holy cows. Rather it has been a famous and popular saying in Pakistan that instead of a lawyer, just hire a judge...
    CJP is the chief of judiciary and if he finds any judge's conduct non-professional or sloppy, he not only has the right but the official responsibility to take action whether it entails a minor snub or any other serious actions that merit the situation.

    Death is inevitable.

    You cant force people to become good or evil. You can only make sure that certain filters are there that mathematics favor you when you put people in power that they will do the right thing.

    The written law interpreted is a mistress to personal conviction and foresight. Sadly the system is designed to do the opposite. We are heading towards constitutional deadlock if we are not already in one.

    Things can only get better. Capitalism has failed in Pakistan.

    CJP is getting carried away with all the media attention and the unbridled ascendancy associated with his designation. Respect for subordinates is a stringent norm for all institutions and judiciary is no exception, be it a gatekeeper or a higher official all deserve to be treated with respect.
    Respect transcends rules, accountability and all the conveniant excuses which are commonly employed to demean juniors and sadly it's something, which has become customary in Pakistan but it has to end at some point.
