Several judges in Pakistan's apex court are personal cronies of Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry
The other day the renowned son
of the Chief Justice was intercepted while speeding @87 Km/h on maximum speed limit of 70 km/h. The chap was challaned and he wholeheartedly accepted it. A good omen it was.
The very next day during a court proceedings one of the judges sitting beside the father of the chap paid complements to the chap by saying “KAL JO KUCH HUA WOH QANOON KI HUKMRANI NAHEEN BALKEH QANOON KA EHTERAM THA”.
What a legal itellect from the judge of the apex court. If we examine the case academically, the judge was absolutely wrong. The Chap did not respect (ehteram) the law but the law prevailed (hukmrani).
Isn’t it bad luck that people with such low sense of law are working as judges.
