- Says we must stand up against rule of might to prevent complete collapse of justice system
ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: The former Prime Minister and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan made it clear that Pakistan stood at the crossroads; therefore, the legal fraternity must start and lead a movement for upholding the rights of people of the country, foremost their fundamental right to vote, to choose their leaders and to define their future themselves.
In his message to the nation, the PTI Chairman said “It is the fiduciary duty of the judiciary and the lawyers to protect the Constitution, upon which rests the progress of our nation.”
Imran Khan called upon: “Therefore, the legal fraternity must start and lead a movement for upholding the rights of the people of Pakistan, foremost their fundamental right to vote, to choose their leaders and to define their future themselves.”
Imran Khan said that whom they choose as their leader was secondary, but they must be given their basic and fundamental right enshrined in the constitution to choose their representatives.
The PTI Chairman alarmed: “Pakistan stands at the crossroads; it is a critical juncture where we are watching the steady destruction and dismantling of our justice system. We must, therefore, act immediately if we are to prevent its complete collapse.”
“If we do not fight for justice and stand behind our judges, we will not be able to establish Constitutional supremacy in this country or stand up against this rule of might, where only the fittest and the richest survive,” he added.
