Indian lawyers visit PbBC


Indian lawyers during a visit to the Punjab Bar Council (PbBC) on Saturday drew similarities between the people of Pakistan and India to unite them into one keeping separate identities.
Led by All India Bar Council Vice Chairman Advocate Pratab Singh, the Indian delegation was warmly received by PbBC Vice Chairman Lahrasab Gondal, Chairman Executive Committee Zafar Mahmood Mughal and other members of the bar. The Indian delegation also included Kamal Deep Singh, Sharmeela Sharma, Shri Krishin, Aman Deep Singh, Taijinder Singh, Gaggan Singh, Sameer Singh, Varinder Kumar, Hakam Singh, Karnel Singh, Kuldip Singh, Vinod Bhardevaj, Rajesh Kumar and Jasbher Singh.
The meeting discussed the problems being faced by lawyers on both sides and ways to address the same with mutual cooperation and help. The Indian guests, speaking to bar members, highlighted various similarities, which were coming through old generations even before partition of the sub-continent. They said that ancestors of most of the lawyers on both sides had the same state, as many from India belonged to Pakistan and many from Pakistan to India. The Indian lawyers said that in reality, we both were one in respect of region, culture, language and law and wished lawyers and people on both sides came closer.
They also appreciated the reception given to them and the struggle of Pakistani lawyers for restoration of an independent judiciary.
