ISLAMABAD – In a landmark verdict that will change the course of the country’s political history, the Supreme Court on Friday ruled that disqualification handed down under Article 62 (1)(f) of the Constitution is for life.
Now after a few weeks in a landmark verdict that will change the course of the country’s political history, the Supreme Court will give a ruling on the definition of life, The Dependent has reliably learnt.
The verdict on what constitutes life, what is its true purpose, when it begins and more crucially when does this particular period end will be issued by a five member bench in the near future.
Life, which is usually believed to be the time period between birth and death, will be scrutinised as per the Constitution of Pakistan with the Supreme Court deciding what its definition is.
While the dates of the hearings are yet to be announced, legal experts are already discussing the possible verdict, with reports that a Joint Investigation Team (JIT) is expected to be formed to track evidences pertaining to ‘birth’ and ‘death’.
“It’s about time the judiciary told us all how we should live our life,” a senior lawyer said while talking to The Dependent. “More importantly it shows everyone is equal before law – including linguistics and dictionaries.”
Senior analysts further opine that a point of contention is expected over ‘death’.
“Where martyrdom fits would be the primary task of the JIT,” a former Supreme Court judge told The Dependent. “This might require some preaching of the afterlife on the streets of federal and provincial capitals.”
