The vitriolic attack on the chief justice of Pakistan by Senator Raza Abedi is wholly unprecedented and in fact unbelievable, the Concerned Citizens of Pakistan (CCP) said in a statement on Monday. Abedi reportedly called upon the CJP to step down, warning that otherwise “he would throw him out of the court”. “A more blatant public contempt of court has never been committed in the history of the country. As a senator he should know that if anyone has anything against a member of the superior judiciary, the route lies through the Supreme Judicial Council. The method is not to throw him out of the court. The people should demand from him an unconditional apology, otherwise the law of contempt should take its course,” CCP President Nasira Iqbal said.
