Qazi Faez Isa will assuredly go to Jahannum

A Pakistani friend spoke to me a short while back on WhatsApp and asked my opinion of the Chief Justice of Pakistan Qazi Faez Isa.

I said he is a fraud, and a mere dramabaz.

He asked me why I thought so.

I replied that as a Judge he has taken an oath to uphold the Pakistan Constitution, and protect the rights of citizens, which includes the right to life and liberty ( Article 9 ). About 10,000 people have been arrested, beaten, brutally tortured, and jailed on concocted and frivolous charges, after the events of 9th May, and held in terrible conditions, and 180 false charges have been levied against former Prime Minister Imran Khan for which he has been incarcerated, but he will never order their release.

Also, he will never order holding elections within 90 days, as is the requirement of Article 224(2).

Instead, he has been doing the dramabazi of refusing protocol facilities, guard of honor, bullet proof car, etc to show off how good a man he is.

My friend said that there is a danda above him, so he cannot do that.

I said that the bigger danda is of Allah who on roz-e-mehshar ( the Day of Judgment ) will assuredly send Qazi Faez Isa to jahannum for not doing his solemn duty.

(Justice Katju is a retired judge of the Supreme Court of India. These are his personal views.)
