shahzad | 11 years ago | Reply My friend Moonis does not know that even Supreme court can deny hearing these petitions by simply rejecting them via Registrar Office but the lust of Power is also there to entertain each & every petition so that their presence can be felt & give judgments which suit them & ignoring all the principles of Justice & giving biased judgements like the one of 31st July, 2009 where PCO oath (2000) taken by them was good but when some one else took it (2007) then it was declared a Sin.
Moonis Shakeel | 11 years ago | Reply Just Let them do their work why we are putting all the burden on one institution?? let others do their work In my opinion many of the lawyers and politicians are just over reacting, they are taking everything from foreign affairs to executive roles, to the supreme court, we must refrain from it, yes of course judiciary has the right rather duty to interprate the consitution, but let them stand alone upon their feets, let them do their actual role and what some of the lawyers and politicians wants them to play is an exagerated role.
