LAHORE: The representatives of the Lahore High Court Bar Association (LHCBA) have suspended membership of a bar member accusing him of viewing porn sites in the bar room.

Advocate Muhammad Afaq was accused of misbehaving with senior bar members, lady lawyers and abusing bar employees.

Ghulam Sarwar Nihang, acting president of the LHCBA, sent a notice to Afaq informing him that “your membership of Lahore High Court Bar Association has been ceased with immediate effect and the matter will be placed before the General House of the bar”.

In the notice, Nihang said there were numerous complaints lodged against the accused by the senior members of the bar.

The notice further stated that Afaq had misbehaved with the senior members of the bar, especially the lady lawyers, several times and once, while sitting in the Kiyani Hall of the bar, he had opened porn websites and invited the members sitting around him to see the movies.

He had also indulged himself in a brawl with some senior members and very recently he had abused employees of the bar, used criminal force against them, torn files of very important nature and broken a computer in the admin office. In this context an application was submitted by the effected staff to Old Anarkali police for the registration of an FIR against him.

Nihang said Afaq had submitted an apology to the president of the bar, confessing his involvement in the aforementioned allegations and had promised that he would not enter the premises of the bar and would refrain from misbehaving with the members and staff in the future. He had also mentioned that if he enters the bar or commits any untoward act, his membership of the bar should be ceased forthwith.

Acting President of the LHCBA, in the letter, said, “You, in violation of your own commitment, kept visiting Lahore High Court Bar Association, Lahore and displayed number of notices containing false and frivolous allegation against office bearers of this bar, judges and registrar of the LHC.

“A committee headed by Usman Sher Gondal, Finance Secretary Lahore High Court Bar Association, Lahore was constituted by the president. The committee served you notice to clarify your position but you failed to comply with the order of the committee,” the letter added.

“Through this notice you are hereby intimated that on account of above complaints the committee found you guilty of unprofessional conduct, hence your membership of the bar has been ceased with immediate effect and the matter will be placed before the General House of the Lahore High Court Bar Association, Lahore,” the notice issued by the acting president concluded.
