Islamabad: During the hearing of the Faizabad sit-in review case in the Supreme Court, Chief Justice of Pakistan Qazi Faiz Isa made it clear that if someone does not go when called by the commission, they can be arrested.
A three-member bench headed by Chief Justice Qazi Faiz Isa and comprising Justice Aminuddin Khan and Justice Athar Minullah heard the case.
Before the start of the hearing, the federal government constituted a commission to implement the decision of the Faizabad sit-in case, the notification of which was also issued. Sheikh Rasheed’s review petition was dismissed by the Supreme Court on withdrawal.
The Chief Justice asked Sheikh Rasheed why he had filed the revision petition and kept it pending for four years after filing the revision. It will not happen that the order has come from above, then the revision has been filed.
Lawyer Sheikh Rasheed said that there was some misunderstanding and hence the revision petition was filed. The Chief Justice remarked that everyone knows the truth and no one dares to speak it. Lawyer Sheikh Rasheed said that today it has become more difficult to speak the truth and dare. Don’t, we’re talking about now.
The Chief Justice remarked that if the Supreme Court is being controlled by someone from outside, the request for review comes and then it does not take many years, then it is said that the decision is not being implemented because the review is pending, you Still won’t tell the truth about who asked for the review.
Lawyer Sheikh Rasheed said that no one told me, filed the revision with the advice of the lawyer.
The Chief Justice remarked that the Supreme Court seems to have been used for its own benefit in the past, even after 100 years the truth will not be told as to who filed the revision petitions. Spreading hatred in the country should be stopped, the biggest enemies of our country are ourselves. No one is sincere with the country by blocking the roads and setting fire around them.
During the hearing, Sheikh Rasheed tried to speak, the Chief Justice stopped Sheikh Rasheed from speaking. Chief Justice remarked that talking to your lawyer.
The Chief Justice remarked that those who have been MNAs and ministers are responsible, aren’t they? Will you serve the country again?
Justice Athar Minullah remarked that Sheikh Rasheed is a senior parliamentarian, the court has not said anything about him.
The Attorney General read out the TOR of the Commission of Inquiry while presenting the notification to the court.
The Chief Justice said why no one from the Ministry of Defense was included in the commission. The Attorney General said that all the provincial governments and the federal government are bound to cooperate with this commission. If the commission needs more time, the federal government will give more time by recording the reasons.
Justice Atharmanullah remarked that whether the commission is capable of dealing with the matter, the former PEMRA chairman told the army chief and the prime minister at the time. We will not give any direction to the federal government.
