Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) chief Nawaz Sharif on Wednesday took a jibe at the judiciary system of the country, reported the 24NewsHD TV channel.
Taking to Twitter, the former prime minister accused the judiciary of various transgressions and expressed his dismay over the state of the justice system in the country.
In a scathing tweet, he targeted the judiciary's historical role, as well as recent decisions.
Nawaz Sharif alleged that the judiciary invented the controversial doctrine of necessity, which provided legitimacy to dictators in the past. He further claimed that the judiciary welcomed dictators and certified their rule, while elected prime ministers were subjected to execution, imprisonment on false charges, and even lifetime disqualifications.
Nawaz Sharif also made a reference to his own disqualification in the Panama case, highlighting the controversial ruling that linked his disqualification to not taking a salary from his son.
The PML-N chief went on to accuse the judiciary of rewriting the constitution by manipulating the composition of benches, raising concerns about the integrity and impartiality of the judicial process.
He expressed his disappointment over Pakistan's justice system ranking 129th out of 140 countries worldwide and claimed that some judges were determined to drag it down even further.
