RAWALAKOT: President of MMA AJK and Ameer of Jamaat-e-Islami AJK Sardar Ejaz Afzal Khan has said that the forced retirement of judges under PCO will spoil the image of Pakistan in the comity of nations. Talking to a delegation of party workers and lawyers, he called on the people of the country to support movement of the lawyers and Jamaat-e-Islami for restoration of the judges including Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry.
He condemned the attitude of the politicians regarding the deposed judges and their maltreatment by the government. Referring to Musharraf’s statement that the deposed CJP was intending to send him home illegally, Ejaz said that this statement has uncovered the true reasons behind imposition of emergency in the country.
“The nation was already aware of the fact that Musharraf removed Justice Iftikhar to prolong his rule and to cover his illegal actions,” he said and added that the statement by Musharraf reflects that his action was based on revenge. He alleged Musharraf of destroying all the pillars of the state just to further his rule.-SANA
