There is no immunity to anyone in constitution:CJP Iftikhar Muhammad Ch

MULTAN – Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry has said that neither Islam nor the constitution gives any relaxation to anyone on the consideration of one’s office or status.

“I invite you all to go through articles 5, 9 and 45 of the constitution. They all clearly state that all are equal before the law. And, we have the biggest example set by the Holy Prophet (SAW) when he said that his own daughter will also face the same punishment like an ordinary woman if she committed the crime of theft,” he said.

Addressing the lawyers at the oath-taking ceremony of office-bearers of 39 bars of south Punjab at the Lahore High Court Multan Bench Lawn on Saturday, the chief justice stressed the judges to dispense justice without considering the status or post of anyone since it was their responsibility to provide justice impartially.
