Shehbaz Sharif Criticizes Judiciary Over Alleged Bias Favoring Imran Khan, Urges to Prioritize National Development

Lahore: Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif has called on the judiciary to focus on national development rather than political agendas, highlighting a perceived bias in favor of PTI founder Imran Khan.

At a PMLN general council meeting, which saw Nawaz Sharif re-elected as PMLN president after six years, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif emphasized the need for judicial impartiality. He said to the judges, “You are Pakistanis and if development does not come to Pakistan again, then there will be no judges, no politicians, and no one else left.” Shehbaz alleged that while most judges are patriotic and prioritize Pakistan’s development, some “black sheep” are aiding Imran Khan.

He contrasted the judiciary’s current approach to Khan’s legal issues with the treatment of Nawaz Sharif, noting that Nawaz struggled to get bail, whereas there are now discussions about bailing out Khan and dismissing his cases. Shehbaz criticized Khan for his alleged conspiracies and campaigns against the families of army personnel, vowing these efforts would be thwarted.

Expressing confidence in Nawaz Sharif’s leadership, Shehbaz stated that under Nawaz’s guidance, Pakistan could overcome its current crises and return to the progress seen in 2017. He lamented the repeated removal of Nawaz from office due to fabricated cases, first Panama and then Iqama, and claimed the 2018 elections were unfairly taken from PMLN.

Nawaz Sharif, addressing the council after being re-elected as PMLN president unopposed, decried the decision that had removed him from party leadership and criticized former Chief Justice Saqib Nisar’s ruling. He argued that Pakistan would have significantly developed if his government had not been repeatedly toppled, suggesting the country would hold a unique position in Asia.

In his speech, Nawaz also accused Imran Khan of collaborating with General Zaheerul Islam to topple his government and challenged Khan to deny this, threatening to quit politics if proven wrong.

During a conversation with the media, former Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar refrained from commenting on the statement by the President of the Pakistan Muslim League (N), saying that he does not wish to respond to such remarks. “What is true is known to all. Everyone has the right to freedom of expression,” he added.
