Lashing out at the judiciary, Maryam Nawaz has questioned its role which she claimed has never stood against a dictator, rather it only went after the politicians, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
Addressing a lawyers’ convention in Rawalpindi on Wednesday, PML-N Senior Vice President Maryam Nawaz said that she came to the lawyer fraternity to save Pakistan.
In her hard-hitting speech, Maryam castigated the judiciary saying that it could only subdue a democratic prime minister.
She said she and her family were implicated in the wrong cases.
She said that Justice Waqar Seth’s name will always be remembered in the history of Pakistan as he showed guts to convict a dictator.
She said that in the entire 76-year-old history of Pakistan, never a prime minister completed his constitutional term.
“Never a court dares challenge a dictator. Rather it lends its support to the dictator.”
She said that 3-4 judges are standing with PTI Chief Imran Khan. “If the support of these 3-4 judges is withdrawn, then Imran will fall down with a thud,” she added.
She rued that Imran gets bail in just two hours.
She said that Imran and his facilitators have made a timeline of the tasks which they want to accomplish before the appointment of new chief justice.
Maryam said that the current Supreme Court bench which has announced the verdict on the PTI petition challenging the polls delay has assumed the responsibility to facilitate Imran.
Taking a jibe, Maryam said that queues made up to seek justice are longer than queues made up for getting flour.
She said that except for these 3-4 judges, the rest of the judges are with the people.
“A jackal who calls himself a leader, when he comes out of his house, he covers his head with a black box. Imran and his facilitators know that he is guilty,” she said vociferously.
“Do you want to bring that person to power who committed corruption,” she roared.
Maryam wondered that never a court gave the epithet of Sicilian mafia to any dictator, nor did it disqualify a dictator.
“Whenever a court disqualified a ruler, it was an elected prime minister,” she lamented.
The PML-N leader said that the PTI people keep on humiliating judges. They reach courts in the form of groups, she added.
She said that she is not afraid of disqualification, she had been disqualified for six years.
Maryam said that the five-member bench announced that Imran Khan violated the constitution. “Is it a minor crime to violate the constitution?” she wondered.
Earlier, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz chief organiser Maryam Nawaz arrived at Rawalpindi Judicial Complex.
A large number of lawyers also arrived at the judicial complex.
Strict security arrangements were ensured at the judicial complex.
Controversial polls will lead country to anarchy: Rana Sana
Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah said Wednesday that an attempt was being made to conduct elections in a controversial manner which would lead the country to chaos and anarchy.
While addressing the lawyers’ convention in Rawalpindi, he said: “We are not the ones to fear elections. We were never ‘selected’ and came to power with the power of the vote.”
The interior minister said that the elections of 1971 and 1977 were controversial. “Now this third election will lead to the destruction of the country. We are the obstacle in the way of this destruction.”
He stated that one man’s stubbornness was not acceptable, adding that elections would be held but on their time.
