There should be a process of accountability but the right should be based on truth and justice. Since a few days ago, senior lawyer Shaukat Khan was killed along with his wife in nowshera and a young lawyer Waqas was also killed innocently, so we will work together within the law and the constitution. The history of lawyers has shown that we have never been and will never be on our knees before a dictatorial system, be it civil, military or judicial. On the contrary, in the history of Pakistan, we have made great efforts and sacrifices to restore the rule of law and constitution in a peaceful manner and still we will not refrain from making sacrifices.He said that whatever decisions are taken now will be based on merit and equality and the opinion of lawyers has to be taken into consideration and at this time the consciousness of lawyers is skyrocketing. Lawyers are the most legally and constitutionally conscious class. Therefore, their opinion should be fully respected and their voice should be listened to.
