Former President Supreme Court Bar Association, Asma Jahangir has said if the judiciary continues to nourish political thinking, it will lead to unrecoverable loss. Talking to media-men outside the parliament house, Asma Jahangir said when the courts does not give ruling in accordance with the constitution and show political bias, the common man loses confidence on the courts. She said the Supreme Court should see Arsalan Iftikhar and Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf with the same eye of justice. She said justice should be practised but the court should also follow some code of conduct. She alleged the quickness in NRO case is part of a plan, which will cause a serious damage to the country and democracy. She said she does not support the new contempt of court law, as many of its sections are against the spirit of the constitution but restrictions cannot be imposed on the parliament taking away its right of legislation. She said the Supreme Court stands by its will of sending the new premier back home as it did in the case of Yusuf Raza Gilani. “The apex court has sent notice to Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf who will appear before the court but still it is said the rulings of judiciary are not respected,” she maintained. Former President Supreme Court Bar Association, Asma Jahangir said she has nothing to do with the issue of writing letter to the Swiss authorities but she wants that the judiciary give its verdicts in line with the constitution. Accusing the parliament of imposing restrictions on judiciary will not nurture democracy but harm democratic norms, she observed. She said she fought and would continue to fight for the independence and supremacy of judiciary but keeping in view the conduct of the Supreme Court it seems democracy will not work. She said they wanted to see a strong judiciary instead of an over-powering one. She said Pakistan Bar Association is a professional body of lawyers and it should not go on strike if a matter is sub judice before the court. If the Bar expresses jubilation about a sub judice matter, there will remain no difference between a lawyer and a politician. She said the lawyers should not be attracted by the incentives like the post of judge in the High Courts. She claimed the vacant posts of judges are not filled as more than 10 lawyers are after a single post. She vowed she would never surrender if the judiciary forbids her from giving statements.
