NEW YORK: The chief justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry has been awarded by Doctors for Democracy (DD) and Association of Pakistani Physicians of North America (APPNA) on Sunday for his struggle regarding supremacy of law and constitution in Pakistan.
Earlier, Justice Iftikhar was accorded a war welcome by the participants on his arrival to the conference.
Addressing the participants, head of DD Majid Chaudhry and APPNA President Arshad Bagu paid tribute to the deposed chief justice for his struggle about restoration of judiciary.
They were of the view that Justice Chuadhry was sacked because he was redressing the complaints of oppressed and vulnerable sections of the society.
Speaking on this occasion, deposed CJP spokesman Athar Minallah dispelled the impression that movement had weakened. He said that justice Itikhar was being accused of doing politics.
“If the struggle of supremacy of constitution and restoration of free judiciary is politics then lawyers will continue to do such politics,” he vowed.
