Hashmat Habib President Tehreek-e-Tahafuz-e-Adlia has urged that dignity of the Judiciary must be protected in spite of many tainted acts as confessed by former Supreme Court Judge Saqib Nisar and others.
“We are shocked to hear about threats conveyed to Mr. Justice Aftab Ahmed Gorar of Sindh High Court by swindlers at the behest of ruling party”, he said.
Hashmat Habib strongly condemned this act to terrorize sitting judge of Superior Judiciary and demanded that a criminal case must be registered against this state terrorism to nib the evil in bud. Suspension of membership of MPAs and subsequent revival is not a remedy to bring the culprits to justice.
Hashmat Habib referred that Senator Nehal Hashmi spoke in a party meeting but same was taken as threat by Supreme Court and in spite of convincing explanation he was forced to tender apology even then he was convicted.
The veteran lawyer said there are many examples where notable persons were convicted but surprisingly Sindh Judiciary is silent about the consequence of threats given to sitting judge.
This matter is not only concerned with Sindh Judiciary but it is also a threat and cognizable offence for the Apex Court, Hashmat Habib added.
