Aitzaz Ahsan draws ire from ‘pro-judiciary’ lawyers.

ISLAMABAD: An unpleasant scene was witnessed on Thursday when some pro-judiciary lawyers started chanting slogans against Aitzaz Ahsan, when he was addressing the media at the Supreme Court building. As he was talking to reporters, the lawyers, loyal to Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry, gathered there and chanted slogans. Meanwhile, senior lawyers condemned those who hooted against Aitzaz Ahsan and said these elements wanted to defame the judiciary. Renowned lawyer Tariq Mahmood said that it was a shameful act, which would damage the respect of lawyers. Talking to Daily Times, People’s Lawyers Forum President Raja Abdul Rehman said that in compliance with the direction of President Asif Ali Zardari, the PLF lawyers did not appear in the SC but one group of lawyers started chanting slogans against the government at SC building. He demanded the SC Registrar look into the matter to determine why the lawyers who were not members of Supreme Court Bar Association entered the SC building. It is to be noted that on the occasion, Aitzaz Ahsan said Justice Iftikhar was also his chief justice and those who were chanting slogans were his friends.
