Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar urged on Thursday that law should be equal for all in the country.
Speaking at a ceremony in Islamabad, he deemed it necessary to eliminate the era of injustice. The CJP maintained that he does not intend to initiate confrontation with any person.
He asserted that social evils can be ended with the cooperation of lawyers.
“I term the lawyers my soldiers but it doesn’t mean that you will indulge into a fight with others. Hard work and struggle leads to success,”
Chief Justice stressed that they have to fight for those who do not have the resource to obtain rights.
“I am not a hypocrite. Whatever I do is due to legal and moral obligation. A judge should always declare verdict as per law and without considering consequences. He should be able to get respect. A judge always rebukes a lawyer in good intentions. Asma Jahangir was also never given any relief,” he maintained.
The CJP promised to complete all the references till June.
“I cannot say much on this position. Give me a chance after retirement, then it will get clear that who is a better speaker. Unfortunately, we have diverted from our actual path,” he said.
