PTI Senior Leader Urges Caution in Handling Islamabad High Court Judges’ Letter Issue

In a recent statement, senior leader of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and newly elected senator, Hamid Khan, emphasized the importance of political parties refraining from involvement in the matter concerning the letter of six judges of the Islamabad High Court. Speaking on the Geo News program Aaj Shahzeb Khanzada, Khan underscored the need for this issue to be addressed by legal and judicial bodies, advocating for the role of the Bar and Judiciary in handling such matters.

Khan highlighted the significant step taken by the Chief Justice of Pakistan in constituting a bench comprising all judges in Islamabad to address the concerns raised in the letter by the six judges. He expressed support for the demand that the full court should hear this case, emphasizing the importance of a comprehensive and impartial review process.

Emphasizing the potential risks of politicizing the issue, Khan cautioned against allowing it to become a subject of controversy between political parties. He stressed the need for a careful and deliberative approach, recognizing the sensitivity and complexity of the matter at hand.

In response to PTI party leader Rauf Hasan’s call for the resignation of the Chief Justice, Khan expressed his opposition to such demands, suggesting that party leaders should refrain from interfering in judicial affairs. By advocating for non-interference in judicial matters and urging a cautious and balanced approach, Khan underscored the importance of upholding the independence and integrity of the judiciary.

As the issue continues to unfold, Khan’s stance reflects a commitment to preserving the credibility and impartiality of judicial processes, while also recognizing the need for transparency and accountability in addressing any concerns raised by the judiciary. His remarks serve as a reminder of the importance of maintaining the separation of powers and allowing legal and judicial bodies to address such matters in accordance with established procedures and principles.
