Respectable Lawyers


The Honourable CJP Asif Saeed Khosa addressing the lawyers in Multan nostalgically reminisced the respect lawyers were shown in the years bygone and sorrowfully wondered why it was no more there. He being the son of a lawyer and having been one himself should be able to fathom out the cause for it. I think Professional Degradation & Avarice of the Black Coats could be summed up as the reason for such an apathy. The lawyers whose main function is to assist the court in dispensing judicious justice now seem hell bent upon getting their accused clients scot free by hook or crook. The smart lawyer with hefty fees leaving aside all compassion, human feelings and consideration for the wretched widow or the orphaned children deprived of their only bread earner or have any fear of Allah not only brings into play all sorts of ruses and legal hair splitting to get his murderer client off the gallows but also boasts proudly about his such artistry to beat the law. Aren’t suc! h Lawyers encouraging the crime by defending the culprits successfully?  Would it not curtail the crime drastically if the lawyers do not take up the brief for the culprits or stop defending them immediately on becoming aware of their clients’ involvement in the crime?


Next, Sir, how do you expect the lawyers to be respected when they take the law in their own hands, manhandle and thrash the session judges, the police officials, the doctors, the restaurant owners etc. or take out rowdy processions blocking the roads and traffic, what all is euphemistically being called “Wukla Gardi”?  Has any Bar or any other judicial body taken any action against such delinquents?  On the contrary the ‘Black Coats’ senior as well as juniors all unite to shield them.
