No immunity for anyone come what may, says CJP


Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Iftikhar Chaudhry said the independent judiciary had rendered landmark judgments on the sole criterion “that is all and sundry to follow rule of law and there is no immunity for anyone come what may”.
While addressing the roll signing ceremony of newly enrolled advocates of the Supreme Court (SC) on Saturday, the CJP said the country had witnessed unprecedented changes in the wake of the lawyers’ movement which resulted in healthy debates about the need to change old ways when the supremacy of the constitution was challenged. “This is a new Pakistan where old structures are crumbling and past demons of extra constitutional deviations are being exterminated one by one. We have learnt from history that no country can realise the dream of progress and prosperity for its people without following the route of rule of law and supremacy of constitution. The early we imbibe this message in the life blood of our existence, the sooner we will reach the Promised Land,” said the CJP.
He formally welcomed the newly enrolled lawyers and remarked that their enrolment as lawyers of the SC was a significant acknowledgement of their lifelong commitment to the profession of law.
The CJP said the profession of law was a noble one in the sense that its members were equally responsible for the administration of justice and as practitioners of law their behaviour had to reflect these values.
Chaudhry, speaking to the lawyers, said appearing in the apex court of the country meant it was their added responsibility to become well versed with the challenges being faced by the bench and the bar. He encouraged them to perform their duties with dedication, ensuring high levels of efficiency.


    • You have appeared with a new name. No matter what you do you will always remain an appears that you dont see the light. I have a suggestion for you. Take a thick steel Rod (Sarya) and shove it up your A**S**S and keep pushing it hard till it come out of your mouth. This will not only show you some light but also you will start seeing stars in broad day light. Try it out today and see if it works for you. Best of luck

      • So you see things clearly because you had tried it…How many times you try it daily…and use this great method on you family members…they might also see the reality as clearly as you and send this rod to Imran Khan also

        • Yes I see very clealy and I dont have to use what I suggested to Shah Hussain, becuase where I live there is no load shedding and it is not dark. This suggestion is for people who have to live in dark stone ages becuase of load shedding. This may be good way to see the light. If you want to make this suggestion to Imran khan or any another crook pakistani politicians, Please go ahead. I will have no problem if Nawaz Sharif, Shahbaz sharif or imran Khan want to use steel rod. Mind you this may be specially suitable for PPP and MQM politician. You can also send it isfandyar Wali and his party men also. and also to JUI leader Fazal ur Reham. The every one start seeing the light and stars. Good Nasir Malik

        • Now you dont make sense at all. My suggestion will show you light and even during broad day light, and you may start making sense. With load shedding most of the day in Pakistan you are living in dark. By acting upon my suggestion you might see light even when there is load shedding.

  1. This man has done several good things for the country, His commitment to continue with rule of law is adorable. He did not handle his son's case with justice and for that he will be taken to task after retirement.
