SC to indict Nehal Hashmi on March 26


Islamabad: Supreme Court (SC) has rejected Nehal Hashmi reply besides fixing March 26 for indicting Nehal Hashmi again in contempt of court case.
A three member bench of SC presided over by Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Mian Saqib Nisar took up the case for hearing on Monday.
Nehal Hashmi appeared before the court in person taking the plea that he has filed his reply. Every man commits mistake. Can a lawyer be not forgiven over repentance.
I offered unconditional apology on the assurance of Kamran Murtaza but even then I was disqualified. I was awarded jail term and was fined”, he said.
Hashmi said “ I never named any judge. I respect and will continue to respect judiciary. I raised voice of poor and oppressed prisoners. Is raising voice of oppressed prisoners a sin.
CJP remarked “ you have said some thing else besides raising voice. Your reply has been received. We have seen what you have written. Court is not satisfied over your reply. Let us indict you in contempt of court case. Is it your full defence.
Nehal Hashmi said such incident has not occurred since 32 years. Chief justice also withdrew his remarks about women skirt. If chief justice words can be withdrawn then why not of common man. Should I then think that I am being victimized politically?
CJP remarked “ we are listening to you silently. Stay within your limits.
Nehal Hashmi said “ what is left with me after my disqualification from Senate.
Justice Ijaz ul Ahsan remarked “ you are maligning the apex court of the country.
CJP remarked “ By the grace of God, ideal decisions will be given.
The court while fixing March 26 for indicting Nehal Hashmi adjourned the hearing of the case.
