Has judiciary become weak due to Imran Khan statements: SC


Supreme Court (SC) has remarked has judiciary become weak due to the statements of Imran Khan.
Supreme Court (SC) has sought more arguments on the maintainability of petition filed against the provocative speeches delivered by Imran Khan
The case came up for hearing before a two members bench of SC presided over by Justice Ijaz Ul Ahsan Thursday.
The petitioner and lawyer Qausain Faisl argued that the statements against the institutions have pained him being a citizen. Soon after their ouster from government Imran Khan and his aides have resorted to provocation.
The judiciary , election commission and the army are being weakened through speeches and statements. Attack is being made by hiding behind freedom of expression.
Justice Ijaz ul Ahsan remarked what one said to other. Will SC take action on it too. There is no transcript of any speech or evidence attached with the petition. The petitioner should tell can the case under 184/3 be made if some one feels troubled.
Justice Yahya Afridi remarked SC has powers to initiate contempt of court proceedings. The court will ITSELF take notice and launch proceedings whenever it deems it proper.
The petitioner job was to inform the court. You informed the court. It would have been proper had the petitioner taken up the matter on some other forum for redressal.
It has not been mentioned in the petition that what fundamental rights have been breached. Why the respective forum has not been approached with reference to the laws which have been breached. Has the judiciary been weakened due to the statements of Imran Khan.
Justice Ijaz ul Ahsan while summoning more arguments on maintainability of the petition and directing to appear before the court well prepared on the questions which have been raised adjourned the hearing of the case till the first week of September.
