They are linking some other things with the restoration of judges. Sharifuddin Pirzada and Malik Qayyum were a party in advising the president for illegal action of November 3, he said. To a question that will such conspiracies prove successful, he said he don’t think so, Zardari Sahib should demonstrate wisdom. Big parties should fulfill their promise of restoration of judiciary, he added.
To another question that what will be the status of petitions if filed in the Supreme Court against the restoration of judges it they are not restored, Hamid Khan said no Supreme Court even exists until the restoration of judges and thus, no petition can be filed.
