Integrity of justice system should not be compromised
26 June, 2012
ISLAMABAD: Justice Ejaz Afzal Khan of the Supreme Court has said that administration of justice creates balance in society and judges who compromise on the integrity of the justice system are doomed to fail.
Justice Ejaz expressed these views at the inaugural ceremony of a one-week course on "The National Judicial Policy and role of district and sessions judges being non-financial managers in financial management". At least 20 district and sessions judges from all over the country, including Azad Jammu and Kashmir and Gilgit-Baltistan, are attending the course.
Justice Ejaz opined that wrong and unfair decisions by judicial officers could cause imbalance and destruction in society.
"The rationale of creation of this universe is nothing else but to reward," he said.
"Those who do good will be rewarded with eternal bliss in heaven and also in this world and those who will do evil will be punished not only in this world but also in the life-hereafter" he said.
He said that enforcement of the rule of law and administration of justice was a job, which would take them up and up. "Those who do it otherwise, they can't escape the consequences. They have to suffer, both, in this life and in the life hereafter," he said.
Justice Ejaz said, "Our problem is not fiscal but moral. A great responsibility lies on your shoulders to enforce the rule of law and morality in the country."
Earlier, director general of the academy presented his welcome address and spoke about the importance of the training course on financial management for heads of district judiciary.
