It's a 'political verdict': Qadri

14 February, 2013

ISLAMABAD: Minhajul Quran chief Dr Tahirul Qadri on Wednesday called the Supreme Court decision to turn down his petition for dissolution of Election Commission of Pakistan a 'political verdict'.

Qadri said that petition was filed against the ECP but it was not touched upon and all the focus remained on his dual nationality. "My dual nationality was taken up by the court rather to hear the petition for dissolution of ECP," Qadri told the media outside Supreme Court.

Criticising the chief justice, he said the CJP, as a PCO judge, had himself taken two oaths, adding there was no difference between pledging loyalty to President Musharraf and Queen Elizabeth.

He further said Supreme Court had insulted millions of oversees Pakistani who, according to him, were the backbone of Pakistan's economy.

SC justified in rejecting Qadri's petition: Asma

Supreme Court Bar Association former president Asma Jahangir has said that Supreme Court was justified to reject Dr Tahirul Qadri's petition for dissolution of Election Commission of Pakistan.

Talking to reporters outside the Supreme Court building on Wednesday, Asma noted that they have been already requesting the honourable court to adopt such a behaviour that the masses might get an idea about the issues they can take to the apex court.

"The masses have no interest in Dr Qadri's petition. They want general election," she said. She observed that the attitude of Dr Qadri before the court was driven by emotions.


Reader Comments:

decision did a unfair and wrong decision

Every body has a right to go to the sc. But court ignored the real petition purposely. The constitution of Pakistan allow dual citizen. Cj insulted Dr. Tahirul qadri. The court's behaviour was totaly unacceptable. I am not a member of Minhajul Quran but Dr. qadri is a great scholar, sincere and devoted of Islam and Pakistan. God give him a long life. I wouls say that chief justice of Pakistan is not a fair person and he should give some decision against N league as well. thank you.
