Hamid Khan, one of the founding leaders of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and a legal expert, says that there is scope in our law that a judge can remove himself from any bench if he wants, no one can force him.
Talking in Aaj News program “Faisla Aap Ka”, Hamid Khan said that in the background of the action that took place in the past, these four judges decided that it is not appropriate for them to be involved in this matter. He gave dissenting notes and isolated himself.
“It’s quite unusual, it doesn’t usually happen in our history,” he said. But there is nothing to worry about, Courts are not regiments that have to be paraded together, Courts have people of their own thoughts, if one has their own differences of opinion, there is nothing wrong with it.
Hamid Khan said that major decisions have been made in the ratio of five to two in America.
Talking about the audio leak of judges, he said that there are already decisions and laws regarding audio video leaks that they should be properly investigated, you can’t rely on them or give an opinion before the investigation.
Regarding the Supreme Court’s automatic notice on the date of elections in Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, he said that automatic notice is not a matter of objection, two judges called the Chief Election Commissioner and asked him why the election is not being held. explained his reasons, the court is listening and while listening, his attention came to the point that yes the constitution is being violated, his words show that it is adjourning the matter in other matters instead of the constitution. I want to put
Speaking in the program, PTI leader Ali Muhammad Khan defended the statement of Fawad Chaudhry’s possible return to the assemblies and said that we thought it better to sit in the opposition. Leave and then join any party you want.
On the occasion of today’s appearance, regarding the police violence on journalists and rioting of the workers, he said that there was no disorder outside the Islamabad High Court, it is wrong to give the impression of an attack on the court. Bazi Seroka, judicial complex had heavy rush of workers, no incident of rioting, government is making plays.
In this regard, the leader of Pakistan Muslim League (N) and spokesperson of Maryam Nawaz, Muhammad Zubair, said that PTI gathers its own workers, the workers are called to stop the police, their leadership is the workers themselves. It calls for all the workers to reach Zaman Park.
He said that if Imran Khan wanted, he could have made an announcement to stop the activists before the appearance, but Murad Saeed was climbing on the roof of the car and shouting slogans, the standard of law should not be different for Imran Khan.
When Shahnawaz Ranjha filed an FIR against Imran Khan, he said that Imran Khan is responsible for the riot outside the court, Imran Khan is the leader, he should have taken responsibility, he should have been stopped. A leader can stop his workers if he wants.
On the question of changing the party constitution to give Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi the post of president in PTI, Hamid Khan said that the post of president was removed from the PTI constitution after Javed Hashmi left the party. It is not appropriate to have a president, chairman and president are two identical positions.
He said that there should be a mechanism to change the party constitution, it cannot be changed day by day, the National Council is called for this, it happens in every party, nothing like this happened here.
Why is the post of president to Parvez Elahi? In response to this question, Ali Muhammad Khan said that Pervez Elahi has stood by Imran Khan and he has done so, that is why Khan has awarded him the post of President.
Explaining the reason for the expulsion of General (R) Bajwa from the group of five, Muhammad Zubair said that he was expelled because PTI targeted him a lot, we wanted to tell that General Faiz was also with him. They say that General Faiz was the best general but Bajwa was a bad general, although both of them were working together for five and a half years, all the blame is put on the head of General Bajwa, we put it on both of them.
He said that in the group of five, all the five judges from Panama were not even mentioned. Imran Khan himself approves what the judges and generals have done together with Pakistan.
Muhammad Zubair said that Hamid Khan says that notice automatically becomes his right, but I don’t think that he should call the Chief Election Commission after hearing about Dogar’s case, I don’t think that there was any connection in it.
He raised questions that a larger bench of nine senior judges had already been formed, then why are they doing pick and choose in it, why are they keeping Justice Faiz Isa out, why are they adding the two judges who have question marks. Yes, there is one judge in 75 or 80 percent of the cases of PML-N, one of which is a three-member bench.
While talking about this, Hamid Khan said that we have repeatedly said that senior judges should sit in constitutional cases, in this case Justice Bandyal has repeatedly made the mistake of ignoring senior judges. There should be no controversy if the bench is also made.
