Courts did nothing wrong, their verdict restoring parliament was a fantastic defence of the constitution. Judges should continue resisting anyone trying to apply pressure.

All judges must realize that the dispensation of justice by equal application of the relevant laws by due process is never a popularity contest. If there is any criticism as a personal opinion, it must be tolerated without reaction. If there is any criticism due to any claimed conflict of interest, then the relevant due process for resolving those must be followed.

Judiciary should not be allowed to take part in constitutional matters. This suo motto stuff is very fishy.

Judiciary had showed its bias through that midnight hearing.Imran should not have left the PM house.Him getting arrested there, and there would have been a revolution.....Just like Imran couldn't keep Nawaz due to mounting pressure ,and constant platelet updates, Imran's arrest would have broken the dam.That pressure is unfortunately lost now.

  • Judiciary should spend its time resolving a huge backlog of outstanding pleas and cases so that proper relief should be provided to the citizens. That should be their prime directive
  • Armed forces should concentrate on the defense of the country from outside forces. There is a lot of unrest seen on our borders lately. Missiles from the foreign countries venturing into our territory does not send a good message and build confidence. That should be their prime directive.
  • Bureaucracy should start cooperating and work under the directives of the elected officials and actually should provide that administrative control at the execution of law and inititiative. Not happening right now
  • Elected representative should pass better laws for the country instead of focusing on getting funds for their local populice to strengthen their vote banks (no need for mna to ask for funds his/her job is to pass the laws)
  • Ministries should have full control over bureaucracy and should take help from think tanks and experts to formulate policies and implement them. (e.g.,Does defense ministry control our defense arm or is it the other way around, does interior ministry have full control of district management and law and order?)
Easier said then done :-) . But we should stop dreaming and start walking towards it..

ISLAMABAD: Irked by ousted prime minister Imran Khan’s continuous allegations against the courts, Islamabad High Court Chief (IHC) Justice Athar Minallah on Monday observed that it seems the PTI’s leadership doesn't have trust in the judiciary.

Justice Minallah issued the remarks while hearing a petition submitted by PTI’s leader Fawad Chaudhry, challenging the cases filed against Imran Khan and the top leadership of his party over the Masjid-e-Nabwi incident.
At the outset of today’s hearing, Justice Minallah noted: “Yesterday, PTI Chairman Imran Khan once again questioned why the courts were opened at 12am.”

He asked whether "PTI chairman has trust in courts or not?”

The petitioner was telling his party workers that the courts are “compromised”, noted Justice MInallah and said that they will excuse themselves from hearing the case if the petitioner does not have confidence in the court and accused the judiciary of being compromised.

The judge directed the petitioner’s counsel to take guidelines from the party’s leadership, adding that if the party does not have confidence in this bench, then they will refer the case to any other bench where they are comfortable.

He said that they did not want other important cases, including the missing persons' case, affected by the political statements made by the party’s leadership.

At this, Fawad’s lawyer Faisal Chaudhry pleaded with the court to listen to the case, considering it the case of missing persons.

“Do not undermine the missing persons' issue,” the judge told the lawyer.
The IHC CJ said that they are not afraid of any campaign against the judiciary, adding that they decide cases as per the law.

“The court had listened [Imran Khan’s] yesterday’s speech. What message was conveyed to the public?” the CJP asked. He said, "your party’s followers believe that he has a flat in Manchester."

Meanwhile, the IHC extended till May 12 the stay order that restrained the police from arresting former information minister Fawad Chaudhry and ex-PM’s aide Dr Shahbaz Gill in a case relating to chanting slogans against Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif and his delegation at Masjid-e-Nabwi (PBUH) in Madinah.



of course they decide cases based on who pays the most amount.

This is the same judge who asked IK Govt to give him guarantee that NS will not die in next couple of days if Islamabad high court adjourn NS case hearing. IK refused to give guarantee and this crook allowed NS to leave the country.

This crook was made judge by Iftikhar Chudhury for his services in lawyers movement.

Why should anyone trust the courts in Pakistan? Frankly the country is a failed state and we're desperately trying to put a veil over it to hide the facts.

Which institution in the country actually effectively does it's job?!

These courts have huge backlogs - 1.9 million cases.

Judges in these courts can be bought, there is ample evidence, anyone with money knows someone who's bought one in his favour. I know of one who's brother collects the money here in the UK.

These courts are inconsistent in their judgements, rich and poor get different treatment.

These courts are thoroughly incompetent. Anyone who read the Asia Bibi verdict released by the SCP a few years ago would be shocked to see how such a poor case with huge holes in it, managed to first get to court and then secondly result in the imprisonment of a woman for nearly 8 years. During this period the case went through several courts, passed several judges, all of whom failed to throw it out until it came to the supreme court.

Heck a police officer was ran over in broad daylight in Quetta and it was all caught on CCTV and yet the case to convict the driver who was a politician was thrown our due to lack of evidence.

Who has any confidence in this shitshow that passes for justice?!

I wish someone in Pakistan had the bollocks to say this out loud. The judges are the biggest criminals in Pakistan, much worse than Zardari or Sharif clans.

i think even Imran didnt know the level of support he had. not to talk about his advisors like SR, SMQ and FC who are products of this system. i feel if he knew the level of support, the prison vans would have been overturned and AMD(CJ-IHC), Molvi Haider, Bundiyal and eventually Bajwa, Anjuman and Shamsad would have swung from trees. it would have been the first bloody counter coup in pk.

That infamous written guarantee moment was a huge bluff, it's very clear now, and Imran failed to call it.Imran knew for sure that Nawaz was faking. He should have come out guns blazing and refused to send him abroad even if he ended up getting arrested. But I guess this also needed good governance rather than just inflated rhetoric to actually snatch political ground , at street level , from Nawaz, and effectively defang Nooni 🐊 tears.

No one has any trust in courts.
few days back, 2 brothers were released by Sc, but they were hanged by Hc years ago. i cant understand why we are on 130 spot out of 135, why we are not on 135?
or judges kitnay zouaq say kehtay hein k Adliya aazaad hai.

Courts did nothing wrong, their verdict restoring parliament was a fantastic defence of the constitution. Judges should continue resisting anyone trying to apply pressure.
article 69 ko raddi ki tokr mein phenk dena chahiye.
what would happen if one article of constitution contradicts with another article?

He should be asking the question why the vast majority of Pakistan's people do not have trust in Pakistani courts, aside feudal lords, drugs barons, the political etc.
