Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) Secretary General Liaqat Baloch has said that the biggest challenge before the Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) was to reform the judicial system and ensure prompt and inexpensive justice to the general public.

Addressing the central advisory body of the JI at Mansoora, he said that the CJP had correctly highlighted the incidents of the violation of the constitution and the law besides the failures and the incompetence of the executive. However, he said, that the construction of dams and population control were the domain of the executive.

He said that if the CJP concentrated on the judicial reforms and was successful in establishing a system of justice guaranteeing even handed justice, it would be a great service to the country and the nation.

The JI secretary general further said that the military dictators had plunged the country’s resources as also nation’s image in the war of the colonial powers earning personal favours. However, he said, time had come when the rulers learnt a lesson from the past mistakes and adopted a national strategy regarding ties with the US and India.

He said that the masses’ confidence in the parliament could be restored only through its efficient role in the system. Speaking at a Seerat conference at Gujranwala, he said that Islam was the great champion of international peace and the message of the holy Quran and the Sunnah was the message of pace for the entire world.
