LAHORE: Human rights activist and Supreme Court (SC) advocate Asma Jahangir has expressed serious concern over violation of human rights in the country.

In a statement issued on Monday, Jahangir said recovery of Abdul Saboor’s dead body from Peshawar was an alarming indication and urged the SC to take the matter seriously, ordering for all missing persons to be recovered before one more person was found dead in another city.

She also condemned an incident including the torture of a married couple on the orders of a local panchayat in Dera Ismail Khan and demanded strict legal action against the perpetrators.

His excellency General Chaudhary, SHO/CJ Pakistan believes in unity of command which requires that you can not question the actions of your superiors in uniform ! Someone was killed in custody yesterday where he should be more worried as custodial killing is more dangerous than killing on street but why should he bother.

It is time to introduce amendment in constitution to make selection of judges more transparent, competitive and broad based not just black coats/lawyers where there is no role of judges in whole selection process.
