Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif on Friday said that Arslan Iftikhar’s case was a conspiracy against the judiciary and called upon the whole nation to stand by the Supreme Court at this critical time. Speaking at a ceremony held to commemorate the third death anniversary of Dr Sarfraz Naeemi at Jamia Naeema, the Punjab CM said that it was a duty of all nation to lend support to the Court, and described Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry as the last hope for justice. He said that he had rejected an offer by President Asif Ali Zardari to withdraw all the cases framed during Pervez Musharraf’s tenure in return for extension of Justice Dogar’s term, adding Raza Rabbani was an eyewitness of this offer. He said Arsalan’s case would be decided by the judges of the Supreme Court. “If judiciary is cornered then Ali Baba and his forty thieves’ gang would occupy the country. Ali Baba and his forty thieves have pushed the country to dark era. Last four year’s period is the darkest era in the history of Pakistan,” he added. About establishment of his office at Minar e Pakistan, he said that it was not like staging a show and those who criticized them should offer a better show, adding that he felt ashamed that yet killers of Srafraz Naeemi were still at large.
