SC to take up Altaf contempt case today


The Supreme Court of Pakistan will conduct hearing in the contempt notice issued to MQM chief Altaf Hussain today. The apex court had directed Altaf thorough a notice to appear on January 7 for his remarks against the court during a public gathering. On the other hand, the MQM’s legal team headed by Barrister Nasim Farogh moved a plea in the Supreme Court on Friday, seeking permission for MQM leader Dr Farooq Sattar or any lawyer to represent Altaf and excuse from his personal appearance before the court. The Supreme Court on December 14 issued a show-cause notice to MQM chief Altaf Hussain for using contemptuous and derogatory language against the judiciary and directed him to appear before the court to explain his position on January 7. A three-member SC bench headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry issued the notice under Article 204 read with Section 3 of Contempt of Court Ordinance 2003, while hearing the Karachi law and order case. It asked the MQM chief to appear before the court and explain why contempt proceeding should not be initiated against him for criticising the judiciary. Following Supreme Court’s judgment on delimitation of constituencies in Karachi, Altaf criticised SC judges in a telephonic address to a party rally on November 30, calling remarks made by judges in the case unconstitutional and undemocratic.


  1. Altaf Husain is the most controversial and voiceferous leader of our time. He is narrow minded ans self centered man He is not a political leader but a culy leader who is venered by his followers and hated by others.His diatribes are always crete controversy He is not careful in his choice of words when he speaks.
    Only thee die hard members of his cult can understand him. They talk about his philosophy , he has no vision only myopic vision to take tings out of te context He tries to pose himself as the catalys of change or a revolutionary It is an aeeron to sanity
    He is in real trouble this time. Clearly ha has treatened te judges of the Supreme Court He does it on regular basus. He should be arrestes and brought to justice. Now he is going to throwDrones on the System in Pakistan.
    He is a baffon and a joker. He puts onn the show every nuw and ten for pleasing his typical Bhai crowd who chant his name.
    The Supreme Court needs to bring this man to justice for his ineberated speech . He tries to become a moralist and reformer. Who does he tink would be impressed by his silly talk.Nobdytakes him seriousk
    Let him get te necessary dose of his own receipe.

  2. LET JUDICIARY NOT FORGET HIS STATEMENTS OF LAST FIVE YEARS IN PARTNERSHIP WITH ZARDARI TO HUMIALATING SC-CJP JUDICIARY.SC MUST DECLAre him guilty also ban his live daily speeches being dual national for twenty years disallowed to control politics

  3. MQM Chief Altaf Hussain is an ordinary citizen of Pakistan and he has to obey the laws of the State.It is bad luck for Pakistan that big fishes and influential are at large even they are given sentences on their crimes.But poor and weak are caught and punished.Is this the system MQM want? If so ,they are not sincere with the innocent people.and no civilized society desire this unbalance system.
