|Dr. Abdul Qadeer Khan|
LAHORE: Ambiguity in Supreme Court (SC) decisions has opened it to ridicule, Dr. Abdul Qadeer Khan said on Wednesday. Addressing the Lahore Bar Association at Aiwan-i-Adl, Khan also said that the SC must decide all cases on ‘merit’. He said that Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani was still in office despite being convicted. “If the SC said that Gilani could be disqualified; why did they not disqualify him themselves?”, he said. He said that a similarly ambiguous decision had been handed down in the case concerning Satan Malik’s dual nationality, who had been re-appointed adviser to the prime minister after his membership of Senate was suspended.
He said revolutionary change in Pakistan had started from Lahore. He said that lawyers must maintain the dignity of their black coats and not throw shoes at judges. About politics, he said, “Politics leads to [perils like] Kufa but if a situation arises, I will tread that path.” He said that he was offered nationality in Saudi Arabia and UAE but he preferred to live in Pakistan.
