Sindh Minister for Information and Local Government Syed Nasir Hussain Shah while condemning the remarks of Federal Minister Fawad Chaudhry on the qualifications of Judges of High Court , in a statement said that “I seriously condemn the remarks of Fawad Chaudhry on the competence of judges of the superior courts.
He said that these remarks were uncalled. When the conduct or competence of judges can not even be discussed in the parliament how can a federal minister imply that a judge is incompetent? ,he asked.
He said that now that his remarks have stigmatized the Hon’ble judges it is important that I must mention this at the very outset that we have the utmost respect for the Hon’ble Chief Justice of the Sindh High Court who is not only the senior most but also a very competent judge.
He said that infact all the top four judges are extremely competent and there is no doubt or question about their integrity, honesty or competence which is well known.
Minister Information said that it is very unfortunate that PTI is in the habit of defaming judges.
“This is destructive of the very institution of judiciary-a pillar without which the state can not stand”,he added and said that the Chief Justice of the Sindh High Court is the senior most and very competent also.
“Besides there is no Sindhi speaking judge in the apex court after justice Faisal Arab’s retirement,he observed. ”
Like the Chief Justice of Balochistan who is a Baloch and has been elevated to the SC,we expect that the Chief Justice of Sindh too will be elevated,he concluded.
