Islamabad High Court (IHC) Chief Justice Athar Minallah has said that there is a need for overhauling the 70-year-old judicial system of the country, reported 24NewsHD TV channel. 

Speaking at a ceremony in Islamabad on Wednesday, Chief Justice Athar Minallah said that the buildings will be useless if justice will not be served to the people. “The real test of the judiciary is how much people trust us,” he said, adding that we have to restore that trust.  

He further stated that our main goal is to change our system, in which every citizen gets cheap and quick justice. However, he acknowledged that it is not possible to bring change to the system overnight or with a magic wand.  

He said that judges and the judiciary are not afraid of fair criticism because it leads to improvement. 

Justice Athar said that the political parties of the country also have a role to play and they should play a role in the delivery of justice and improvement of the system in the country. “The Law Minister is right that there are many challenges for the judiciary too,” Chief Justice hinted. 

The IHC Chief Justice said that he hoped the improvement will not stop only at the buildings but the state will also fulfill the requirements of providing immediate justice to the people. 

Earlier, he also congratulated the leadership of the lawyers for the inauguration of the Lawyers Complex.
