Punjab Governor Attempts to Appoint LHC Judges of Choice

Bookmark and Share

As reported in the local press, recently, the Punjab governor, moved a list of seven ‘Jiyala lawyers’ to the chief justice of the Lahore High Court as ‘recommendations received in the Governor’s Secretariat’ for the slots of judges of the LHC. The chief justice not only rejected the governor’s nominees but also expressed his displeasure over the violation of the Constitution because the summary for appointment of lawyers for the slots of judges had to be initiated from the office of the LHC chief justice.

Whereas, the worthy chief justice has set honesty, uprightness and professionalism as conditions for those recommended from amongst the legal fraternity for appointment as judges to the superior judiciary so that no one could raise fingers at them, it speaks of foul play on part of the worthy governor. Does democracy imply politicisation of government institutions? What use are the sermons and addresses of advocating high moral values, if the deeds by these leaders contradict what they profess! This is, unfortunately the sorry state of affairs.The ones who are supposed to uphold the constitution are the ones trying to violate it.

GOVERNOR OF PUNJAB SAHIB,

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE LET PAKISTAN SURVIVE BY NOT RECOMMENDING PEOPLE WHO WANT TO SIT ON ANY GOVERNMENT POST THROUGH BACK CHANNEL.

LEAVE OUR COUNTRY IMMEDIATELY OTHERWISE ON DAY OF JUDGEMENT WHAT ANSWER YOU WOULD GIVE TO ALMIGHTY ALLAH THAT THE COUNTRY WHICH CREATED BY THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE'S BLOOD DURING 1947, VANISHED FROM WORLD MAP.

ARE YOU MUSLIM.

FEAR GOD, EVERY BODY HAS TO DIE AND ANSWERABLE TO GOD.

Well, this has been part of history, recent appoints in Lahore High Court and Islamabad High Court are more than evident. Non practicing lawyer are appointed on basis of party affilation. Another factor is money in this appointment involved, people are ready to pay upto 20 million ruppees for such appointments.
Another factor is appointment of favourite junior lawyer by seniors to get favour when they are sitting in courts.

Well
I would only say that Governor is nothing but piece of crap. I know lot of other people are also like him or might be worst, but this guy does not feel any fear and whatever he wants he tries to do. I mean these people dont even think they also have to die. They think whatever and how much we could suck this country, do it.
I dont know how come people can even think about living in this country and cutting its roots along.

May God give all of us the power to think optimistically for our country, AMEEN

Riz

Thanks God that Governor Punjab does not have powers to appoint judges and that the Chief Justice has snubbed him for the same. Which Day of Judgement and for whom are we talking about? All evil emanates from the fact that most of us don't believe in the Day of Judgement even if we say so by words of mouth. I thank you al for sstopping by.
