ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: The Judge of the Supreme Court of Pakistan Justice Athar Minallah has advised the judges to go through a Code of Conduct by Imam Anu Hanifa (RA) and act upon it.

“If the said Code of Conduct is observed by our judges, it can revolutionize our judiciary,” he said in his remarks at a certificate awarding ceremony held at the Federal Judicial Academy in Islamabad at the conclusion of a two-week Federal Judicial Education Programme (FJEP).


Speaking as the Chief Guest, Justice Athar Minallah emphasized the need for independent judges adding that “we must nurture and nourish independent-minded judges, judges with a mindset of judge, to ensure judicial independence.

“A Judge should be independent. A judge should always be conscious of the fact that he/ she is not subordinate to anyone,” Justice Athar Minallah said.

“A judge should always follow the law and not be influenced by anyone. Only an independent- minded judge can ensure the right to a fair trial and only an independent judiciary can enjoy confidence and trust of public. We must train them in such a manner as they become independent–minded judges.

Judges must be individually and institutionally independent. Without independent-minded judges, the independence of judiciary cannot be a reality.”
