LARKANA: On Saturday, Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Justice Mian Saqib Nisar said that the judiciary will not stay silent if citizens are not given their rights.
Addressing a ceremony in Larkana, the chief justice said, “We are not deprived or oppressed people. If nobody will stand for the protection of citizens’ rights, it does not mean that the judiciary will remain silent too.”
Chief Justice Nisar stressed that the judicial system’s objective is to provide justice. “The objective behind all suo motu notices is to make people aware and sensitize them,” he said.
“Do you know why there’s so much backlog with the judiciary? For a moment forget about the ordinary litigation on the criminal and civil side. But are you aware of the ratio of public and administrative law litigations pending in the high court and supreme court.”
