Boycott and ostracise these shameless judges

I call upon all lawyers of Pakistan to boycott the courts of Chief Justice Qazi Faez Isa, Justice Muhammad Ali Mazhar and Justice Musarrat Hilali, the 3 shameless judges who delivered the crooked judgment depriving the PTI of its party symbol on specious grounds, and paving the way for installation of that corrupt dacoit Nawaz Sharif to become the next Prime Minister who looted Pakistan ( as the Panama Papers and other evidence discloses ), though 80- 90% Pakistanis hate him and solidly support Imran Khan, who is incarcerated in jail on trumped up charges since early August last year.

These 3 behaya and beghairat judges have proved that they are the modern day Judge Jeffreys ( the 'hanging judge' ) who hanged thousands of people at the orders of King James II, or the Nazi Judge Roland Freisler who hanged numerous anti-Nazis on the orders of Hitler. They are stooges of the Pakistan Establishment, take orders from it, dance to its tune, and toe its line. Are they fit to be judges ?

Just as Pakistan lawyers bravely held massive demonstrations against that tyrant Gen Musharraf, they should also hold massive demonstrations at the residences of these unashamed and unrepentant murderers of democracy in Pakistan, ostracise them, not invite them to any functions, and immediately leave any gathering where they are present.

If there is even an iota of self respect remaining in these 3 judges they should resign, but it is evident they have none. Hence the bar must take action which creates a situation where they are forced to do so.

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