Terrorism lesser in Pakistan due to sacrifices of citizens: CJP

CJP Saqib Nisar

QUETTA: Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Justice Mian Saqib Nisar said on Tuesday that terrorism was a conspiracy to weaken Pakistan; however, terrorism was lesser in Pakistan than it used to be only because of the sacrifices of the citizens.
Justice Nisar was addressing a condolence reference in Quetta marking a year from the deadly Civil Hospital bombing where more than 70 lawyers were killed.
Speaking at the event, he said they can never forget their colleagues who left them a year ago. The chief justice also touched upon security issues faced by judges and lawyers.
Mentioning a child who lost her father in the incident, Justice Nisar said as the Chief Justice of the country he felt ashamed to explain to her why ‘the system and country were unable to protect her father.’
Justice Nisar said he has been in contact with the Ministry of Interior regarding the security of courts to create a comprehensive plan for the protection of lawyers and courts.
“An independent institution is responsible for the security of courts and judges in America and we have been working on developing a similar system in Pakistan since some time,” he said.
The event was attended by senior judges and lawyers of the Balochistan High Court Bar Association (BHCBA).
