WASEEM ASHRAF BUTT
Welcome
GUJRAT: The district and sessions judge of Mandi Bahauddin on Friday convicted Deputy Commissioner (DC) Tariq Basra and Assistant Commissioner (AC) Imtiaz Ali Baig in a contempt of court case, awarded them three-month imprisonment each and issued orders for sending them to jail.

Mandi Bahauddin police arrested the DC and the AC from the courtroom after the DPO, who was also present in the court, was given orders by D&SJ Abdul Jabbar to arrest them.

Moreover, the judge also ordered the police to shift the convicts to Gujrat District Jail, instead of sending them to the Mandi Bahauddin Jail.


A citizen, Muhammad Asim, had filed a case in the court of District and Sessions Judge Abdul Jabbar, who also heads the district consumer court, pleading that he had been allotted an official residence in the Wapda Colony but the local administration had issued another allottment letter of the said house to a schoolteacher, Hassan Ali. Later, the litigation clerk, Rana Mehboob Ali, of the local administration forcibly ousted him from the house, violating his privacy.

The judge issued notices to the DC and AC to appear before the court; however, they sent the litigation clerk to the court who committed grave misconduct and contempt by misbehaving with the judge. The clerk challenged the authority of the court as well. At this, the court convicted him.

However, the DC personally made a phone call to the judge, asking him to set the litigation clerk free whereas the AC also appeared in the court and allegedly misbehaved with the judge. The judge issued notices to both DC and AC under Section 228 of the Pakistan Penal Code to appear and personally answer as to why contempt proceedings should not initiated against them.

Both the officers appeared in the court on Friday but they could not satisfy the judge. At this, the judge awarded three months imprisonment to both the officers and sent them to Gujrat District Jail.


During the proceedings, the president of the Mandi Bahauddin District Bar Association, who was representing the DC, also exchanged harsh words with the judge. However, the judge also warned him of initiating contempt proceedings against him but did not do so.

The official sources said both the district administration officers were detained in the DC house.

Kudos to the judge for setting a precedent but the bar President played it out like an agent of the executive which is shameful

Pakistan main her aik ko terbiat ki zaroorat Hai keh qanoon ki had main kaisy rehty hain. Mulk or mulk k logon ka khayal kaisy rakha jata Hai. State kaisy baap ka kirdar Ada Kerti Hai. Kaisy zalim ko roka jata Hai. Kaisy haqdar ko uska haq dia jata Hai.

Mery mutabiq, hukumat or mulk, donon main ager logon ka khayal na hoto phir Aisa mulk bhi Bekar Hai, Aisi hukumat bhi Bekar Hai.

The d.c imo was playing equal equal with the judge and the promising thing in all this episode is that he wasn't a proper sessions and district judge but a district judge for the consumer court only. The civil martial law administrator appointed for Mandi shouldn't have crossed the line with the judicial officer who happens to be an honest gentleman by first sending a clerk to attend the court proceedings against the arrest warrants of a.c mandi and later on threatening him over the surrender of a.c before the court on a phone call .


The babus should come out of their colonial mindset of considering themselves as untouchables and embrass reality

We have to completely root out the mentality of : oy tujhy pta Hai keh main kon hon?

We can present this incident in our prayers to The Almighty that finally some big whig was taken to task by a Pakistani lower court and ask for His grace -------
I hope more honest judges jail these lot.

Man I nearly fell off my chair after coming to know about this news. No personal business with the d.c but this verdict has changed the course of Pakistan's subordinate judiciary dramatically in favour of equality before law

Babus plus the corrupt judiciary, the mafia mindset basically that is very much prevalent in almost all the professions / trades. Jarnail mafia, Siyasat dan mafia, industrialist mafia, Doctor mafia, bureaucracy mafia, police mafia, lawyers, judiciary mafia, aur tou aur Schools too are a mafia .... only if engineers were given jobs to serve makhlooq e khuda they too would have ended up being a mafia.
