November 30, 2019
DERA GHAZI KHAN (92 News) – Chief Justice of Pakistan Asif Saeed Khosa has said that there is no need of forming a High Court bench at each place after the video link. Addressing DG Khan District Bar Association on Saturday, he said that his father wanted to see him a CSP officer. “But I revolted against my father’s decision and decided to remain independent. I started practice from Dera Ghazi Khan,” he said. He said that the DBA had offered his father to make the president unopposed 40 years ago, but his father refused to accept it. “I thank all lawyers for the respect bestowed on my father about 40 years ago,” he said. “I have never succumbed to pressure since my childhood.” The CJP said that education is the only way to progress. He urged young lawyers not to meddle their personal problems in the profession. “Lawyers should give more respect to judges much more than the respect they desire for themselves. A good character is also essential for self-respect,” he said . On November 30, Chief Justice of Pakistan Asif Saeed Khosa said that advocacy is to serve the masses, not to make money. He said that lawyers should think about the benefit of the clients. “If a judge does not make a decision, there is no difference between a Qasid and him,” he declared. The CJP was of the view that lawyers will have to forward the tradition of seeking and imparting the knowledge. “It is mandatory for juniors to get training from seniors otherwise this sequence will not advance in a better way,” he said. He said that he had started law practice on January 9, 1981. “The area of Multan has produced several eminent lawyers. I learnt a lot from the lawyers of Multan. I had been champion of table tennis of Multan Bar,” he said. CJ Asif Khosa said that no one could think of speaking against judges, but now untoward incidents in courts are a routine matter. “In the past, judges were more than the cases. Each lawyer wants to be heard by judges who want to deal with more and more cases which causes problem,” he said.
