I was wondering how efficient our courts have become in delivering speedy justice, when it comes to the highly politicized issue of PCB’s top slot. In this country, the poor have to wait for decades to get their cases heard; never mind getting justice. Hundreds of high profile cases are still pending yet when PTI’s Imran Khan submitted his case regarding the recounting of votes in four constituencies, he was given preference over other pending cases.

Our Judiciary needs to provide stability and remember that nobody is above the law. If sanity prevails, various institutions need to stop meddling in each other’s affairs and create an environment of hope and impartiality. Serious reforms and sincere intentions are required to regulate our institutions, especially the ‘pillars of state’.
