Chief Justice Tassaduq Hussain Jillani said usurping the freedom of people could not be allowed in the warfare against terrorism on the pretext of national security and preservation of democracy.
Addressing a full court reference in honor of Justice Khilji Arif, Chief Justice Jillani said human rights could not be neglected at any price.
The chief justice added that Pakistan was plagued by several wars besides terrorism and sectarianism. He sounded out the state was also waging a warfare against the maltreatment of minorities, adult females and kids. The country’s top judge further stated it was our duty to stand united for Pakistan.
