Imran Khan said this while addressing the lawyers’ community on the invitation of Lahore High Court Bar Association here Wednesday.
He held the whole nation considered Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry as symbol of independence of judiciary. The objective of independent judiciary would be achieved with the reinstatement of Iftikhar Chaudhry, he added. Judiciary would have to be made independent to set the country on right track, he maintained.
Democracy does not come through elections, he said adding an independent judiciary protects an independent election commission.
“We will continue to stand with Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry until he remained adhered to his stance”, he announced.
“We don’t acknowledge Asif Ali Zardari in terms of 3 references. First of all Zardari was administered oath by unconstitutional chief justice of Pakistan, secondly he concealed assets from the nation and thirdly he got indemnity from charges of corruption through NRO, Imran alleged. NRO was a shameful law, he underlined.
Tribesmen were patriotic people and they have fought war for the sake of Pakistan, therefore, war can not be won against them, he remarked.
Anti Pakistan forces were active, he said adding there should be ceasefire immediately in FATA and process of dialogue should be started with tribesmen, he remarked.
