The chief justice appealed to the people to contribute for dams who leheartedly as construction of dams was very much necessary for water security in the country. “The nation is actively donating to the dam fund. The construction of dams is essential. We have to build dams on an immediate basis as they are very crucial for us,” he said. The chief justice said that sufi scholars always emphasised on following Islam in its true spirit. “Islam gives a message to serve people and to create facilities for them,” he said, adding that there are a number of things in the country which needed to be corrected. “We have to express our love for the country by discharging our duties honestly,” he added. On the occasion, the chief justice was also given cheques by several devotees for the dam fund.
