Quaid-e-Azam never aimed for a secular Pakistan: CJP


Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Anwar Zaheer Jamali Monday (today) said that an end to corruption will automatically remove an additional burden from the judiciary.

While addressing a ceremony held in connection with the new judicial year, he said that Quaid-e-Azam did not seek to turn Pakistan into a secular country, instead, he envisaged a land with religious freedom to all religions

The CJP asserted adding terrorism will get a boost in case the society is compartmentalised on the basis of religion.

He also urged all national institutions to work in their designated constitutional domains.

The top judge said that the apex court cannot close its eyes on violations of fundamental human rights in the country.

He also pointed out that terrorism is succoured not only from a foreign hand but also from within the county, as sabotage elements were found to have links with political and religious parties in the country.

All such links with the terrorist elements should be traced forthwith, he demanded.
