When judiciary becomes an active political party only the smart dishonest will benefit What happened to corrupt 'ladala son' of our revered but uninformed avenger father enjoying immunity!!! Please don't give me lecture of His piety and honesty as it will be measured when he will be out of his office. I rest my case, your honor.

It is a smart move on the part of Malik Riaz. Looking at the history of Punjab HC he has a better chance to get justice from SHC. PHC can easily hang him just like the elected PM who was arrested from his home in Sind but tried in Punjab for desirable results. Malik should also remember that LHC chief justice Sharif has already offered free legal services to Taseer's killer Qadri. He has to watch his back from these jan nisars. Why are Malik's enemies surprised, is SHC not a part of Pakistan? However, Arsalan is never going to step out of his zone of influence.
