- Isa’s wife initiates contempt of court proceedings against Fawad Chaudhry
By Irum Saleem
After getting booted out from Punjab Shahbaz Gill seems to have nurtured a grudge against CM Usman Buzdar and joined hand with his (Buzdar) detractor federal minister Fawad Chaudhry.
Its open manifestation was witnessed when Gill openly supported Fawad for his tirade against Supreme Court judge Justice Qazi Faez Isa.
Now CM Buzdar must have known that this Gill is hanging up against him. Buzdar had removed Gill as his adviser last year for acting as “CM” and making Buzdar “niku”. Although getting out of Punjab PM Imran Khan appointed him his special assistant.
On Monday Justice Qazi Faez Isa’s wife Sarina Isa filed an application in the SC for initiating contempt of court proceedings against Minister For Science and Technology Chaudhry Fawad Hussain over a highly offensive tweet.
In a tweet earlier this week, Fawad Hussain had said that he had been “listening to the speeches of an undertrial judge (Justice Isa) of the Supreme Court for a week. If [I] answer, then lectures will start [ranging from] we are saddened to we have been insulted.
“Sir, if you too are fond of politics like your godfather Iftikhar Chaudhry (former chief justice of Pakistan), then resign and contest elections for the councillor. You will get to know about both [your] popularity and acceptance,” Fawad had further said.
In her petition, Sarina said Fawad through his tweet had confirmed that “secret cameras” have been installed in the courtroom because he was hearing all that happened in [it], despite never having once attended a single hearing”.
Sareena said her husband was still a judge of the Supreme Court and not an “undertrial prisoner”, adding that by referring to Justice Isa as an undertrial judge, the federal minister had “committed contempt of this court and of a sitting judge of this court”.
Referring to Hussain’s use of the word godfather in his tweet, saying that it was a term used for criminal syndicates and mafia bosses and was thus “highly offensive to the dignity and respect of this honourable court [and] constitutes gross contempt”.
“Ch Fawad Hussain has violated his ministerial oath of office, the Constitution of Pakistan, mocked and ridiculed this honourable court’s former chief justice, a sitting judge of the Supreme Court and committed contempt of this honourable court.
If judges of the highest court of Pakistan are humiliated, disrespected and abused in this manner by a federal minister, then the Twitter brigade at their command and the combatants of the 5th generation warfare do much worse,” she said.
Jumping into his anti-Buzdar Guru, Shahbaz Gill said that besides being the minister of science and technology, Fawad isalso a political personality who always respects the courts.
“And if you (Isa) call the country a gutter, then who understands politics and political statements better than Fawad Chaudhry.”
