While the media spotlights shines the on going Pakistan India tension in the wake of Mumbai attacks, the case of the daughter of chief justice Abdul Hameed Dogar is heating up, while the chief justice Dogar is adamant to go on, despite of all the proof of his misconduct.
Instead of making the matters resolved, the chief justice is hindering the due process. Supreme Court could not stay the proceedings of parliament in view of the principle of separation of powers based on the Constitution. Article 68 of the Constitution places restrictions on a discussion of a judge’s conduct in the ‘discharge of his duty.’
According to the media reports, a miscellaneous writ petition has been filed in the Islamabad High Court (IHC) to make Chief Justice Abdul Hameed Dogar as a necessary party in his capacity as a common citizen of the country, along with the Islamic Medical College through its principal and journalist Ansar Abbasi (Editor Investigation, The News) as proper parties in the case of awarding additional marks to Farah Hameed Dogar.
Even the former attorney-general Malik Muhammad Qayyum was of the view the Supreme Court could not prevent parliament from debating an issue.
