ISLAMABAD: Former President Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA) Aitzaz Ahsan on Tuesday demanded Chief Justice of Pakistan Abdul Hameed Dogar to resign form his post. The call came from him after exposure of a scandal as his daughter Farah Hameed Dogar was awarded illegally extra marks in FSC part 2nd examination by Federal Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education (FBISE).
Responding on the issue, he said that it is not surprising the CJ had such weakness because of them he was made CJ of Pakistan saying that there were already complaints about him regarding bank lone. He said that the board could not take the step without any pressure; however, if the CJ is not involved in the case then he must take Suo Moto action against the responsible.
Earlier, senior advocate Supreme Court of Pakistan Ahmed Raza Qasoori termed “the FBISE scandal as the conspiracy against Chief Justice of Pakistan Abdul Hameed Dogar saying that some critics exaggerated the deposed CJ US visit but actually he (deposed CJ) was awarded by “clearance chit” saying he knows why deposed CJ was invited by Washington George Town University as his (Qasoori’s) children were studying over there. Earlier only politician used to get clearance for US but now the judges also started getting clearance form there” he added.
Whereas Deposed Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry’s spokesman Atharminallh Advocate on Monday said that some forces wanted to attach FBISE scandal with Iftikhar Chaudhry’s US visit negatively.
Responding on his statement, he strongly rejected Qasoori’s statement terming it as “extremely irresponsible statement”; however he said that being a puppet he played in the hands of others throughout the life. He said that deposed CJ was invited by US judiciary and he addressed different bar associations, colleges and universities that he termed as honor for the whole nation.
One “NO” of deposed CJ Iftikhar Chaudhry had arisen the heads of Pakistanis all over the world saying he never compromised on the principles as he rejected the invitations of many US officials, congress members and the politicians; however, he said that deposed CJ did not need of approval of the any body.
He said that those people who were attaching deposed CJ with FBISE sandal actually they are conspiring against the country since long saying they were trying to degrade the honorable deposed CJ. However, he vowed that the lawyers’ movement would be continued terming it as embodiment of the country’s honor.
