RAWALPINDI - Chairman Tehrik Tahafuz-e-Pakistan (TTP) and prominent nuclear scientist, Dr Abdul Qadeer Khan, has said that educated and civilised societies always obey and implement the court orders, no matter what the consequences would be.

He said that Pakistan was passing through crucial stage while there was no national leader in the country including emerging politician Imran Khan who could bring the change as per expectations of the nation. Dr AQ Khan expressed these views while addressing a ceremony held by Lahore High Court Bar Association (LHCBA) here on Tuesday.

Besides scores of senior and junior lawyers, the ceremony was attended by LHCBA President Sheikh Ahsan-ud-Din Advocate and District Bar Association (DBA) President Sajid Ilyas Bhatti.

Addressing the bar, Dr AQ Khan leashed out at ruling PPP for showing disrespect to the court orders referring to the Supreme Court’s order regarding National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO) implementation case.

“All educated and civilised societies accept and implement the courts’ verdicts though they might not like the decisions. Although it was wrong to hang founder of PPP Zulfikar Ali Bhutto but the decision of the apex court was implemented” he added.  Dr AQ Khan, while comparing the leaders and mainstream politicians of Pakistan with Gorbachov of USSR, said there would be chaos in Pakistan if the nation allowed another term to the rulers. He said that all the politicians including Imran Khan have been playing with the sentiments of people and did nothing for their betterment. He said that worried situation forced him to come out to mobilise the people and save Pakistan.

Criticising Imran Khan as politician, Dr Khan said the PTI chief along with Dr Sheeri Mazari approached him after the high court lifted ban over his movement. He said that he had advised them to bring out good policy engaging other politicians as well. But the PTI leaders did something other evidence of which was an article written by Dr Mazari in a newspaper against me, claimed Dr Khan.

Dr Khan, while talking about Mian Nawaz Sharif, said that PML-L President should keep at arm length the incompetent advisors surrounding him and award tickets to honest and clean people from his party’s platform for the next general elections.

He said that former military dictator and former President General (Retd) Pervez Musharraf and PPP leadership totally failed to provide relief to the masses during their tenures.

LHCBA President Sheikh Ahsan-ud-Din Advocate and other lawyers representatives, while speaking on the occasion, said that Dr AQ Khan is hero of Pakistan and the nation loves him very much. They said that a military dictator humiliated the national hero on the nod of Washington and levelled baseless allegations of transferring nuclear technology to other countries.

They said that they needed to respect the benefactors of Pakistan instead of humiliating them on the TV channels for what they never done. They paid rich tribute to Dr AQ Khan to make Pakistan a nuclear state.
