LAHORE:

A petition, filed in the Lahore High Court (LHC), on Monday sought contempt proceedings against Prime Minister Imran Khan over his remarks against the judiciary during the premier's live session with the public.
The petition also said PEMRA and PTV should be questioned in regards to the 'on-air contemptuous program'.
Sardar Farhat Manzoor Khan, in his petition, made the Federation of Pakistan, through its secretary information and technology, the premier's personal secretary, PEMRA and PTV as respondents.
He contended that on April 4, the respondent was hosting a live program with questions and answers by the prime minister, who 'uttered some words against the judicial system'.
"The meaning of the wording amounts to give a message to the general public that some wrong in connection with Mian Nawaz Sharif, if any, is on the part of the judges, which mind flow and wording on the part of the Prime Minister especially through print media PTV, which at least uses to see 39 countries and so far are the social media is concerned the same is using in all the world even, hence the same is a violation of the following:
I- Article 204 of the Constitution of Islamic Republic of Pakistan 1973 which deals to the contempt of court.


II- Articles 68 and 114 of Constitution of Islamic Republic of Pakistan 1973 which prohibits such type contemptuous working against courts of law, even in parliament."
The petitioner further stated that there are several case laws, in which the stakeholders were called and punished on the subject, especially in the case of Yusuf Raza Gillani.

He further stated such type of conduct of should not be tolerated and immediate action is also necessary to maintain the dignity of the beloved judges of Pakistan.
The petitioner also prayed upon the court that respondents be directed to restrain from 'permanently uttering, using, showing any wording or program against or involving ridiculous and contemptuous attitude, acts and deeds against the judicial system or any judge of the judiciary of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan'.
It was further implored that the respondents be summoned and question in regards to the program that was telecast in the larger interest of the judiciary and the general public.

Lets see, the judiciary is stalked with Sharif loyalists - so is the police and bureaucracy in Punjab with the counterparts in Sindh and PPP.
So today Pakistan is technically the loose feudal state system of Sharifistan and Bhuttoistan occupied by the Pakistani Army.

I wonder if the day will come when IK tells the public that many in Judiciary are part of the mafia - public knows but would he go for such a direct attack ...

The crows will stand up and create a lawless situation like they do always including getting upset at the black color being connected to food and beverage staff.

This case has No Legal Ground as law of contempt of court is not applicable and does not refrain anyone to 're-narrate the court decisions' in any particular case .... it just a media gimmick nothing more.

Neither Khan refused to implement the court decision, in fact what Lahore High Court and Islamabad High Court did to favour NS has no legal grounds or similar legal example from past NS case IS THE ONLY CASE in the legal history of this Nation, in which he was not only granted bail but sent abroad which in result have stopped all legal proceedings against NS and this act in all practical sense and purpose is itself a proof of an ACT OF OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE.

BTW is this petition officially accepted by LHC for hearing ..... ???

Lohar High Court judges are allergic to facts.
Qasim Ali Khan aka kuta or nawaz married his daughter to a pmln mna candidate

Qasim Ali Khan if my memory serves me right was even pressing the government to book people on twitter and facebook speaking against him under FIA cyber crime laws
Islamabad High Court
They were less attrocious overall in their judgements with many times giving judgements infavour of PTI but LHC does not even try to hide the fact that they are biased
