After hearing the arguments of Shahbaz Gill, Imran Khan, and the PTI leader Faisal Javed Khan in the Supreme Court, it’s clear that Imran Khan knew he had to offer an unconditional apology to the judiciary and the law. He had several chances to do so, but ultimately he chose not to. PTI leader Faisal Javed said that Imran Khan has always talked about the supremacy of the judiciary and law. The party’s stance is the same, and hopefully, the court will rule in Imran Khan’s favor.
Former Prime Minister
Imran Khan’s apology was received well by the court. He assured the court that he would not make derogatory remarks about the judiciary. The former prime minister also pledged to respect and preserve the independence of the judiciary. The court noted the body language of Imran Khan in court and the expression of regret on his face. The apology was accepted and the court adjourned the hearing till October 3.
After Imran Khan apologized in court, the court ruled that he would not be indicted for contempt. The IHC said that it would be improper to proceed further with contempt proceedings if Imran Khan had apologized to Judge Chaudhry. The court adjourned the hearing till September 26.
Response to Show-Cause Notice
In his response to the IHC show-cause notice issued by the Supreme Court, Imran Khan reiterated that he has “absolutely no desire to hurt the feelings of the lady judge.” The fact, the PTI chairman cited Islamic forgiveness principles and his personal commitment to upholding the Constitution in his written response. In addition, he also accused the ruling coalition of politicizing the matter.
Dr. Shahbaz Gill
The show-cause notice was issued after Imran Khan allegedly threatened a female judge at a rally on August 20. Later, Imran Khan severely criticized the police and alleged that a senior police official, Dr. Shahbaz Gill, had been subjected to physical torture in police custody.
Court’s Ruling on Terrorism Case
Imran Khan has been accused of terrorism and of burning someone to death. He has never commented on the accusations or his motives. However, his lawyer has said that he had discussed taking legal action and lodging a case against the IG. The alleged crimes are against the country’s national security and the image of Pakistan in the world.
Country’s Anti-Terrorism Law
The charges against Imran Khan were based on a speech that he made last month in which he allegedly threatened police officers and judges. This speech was allegedly made after the former prime minister was denied bail in a sedition case. However, the Islamabad High Court ruled that Imran Khan’s comments were not punishable under the country’s anti-terrorism law. The former prime minister also faced other cases that were related to his political activities.
Imran Khan’s Response to a No-Confidence Motion
Imran Khan has been in the spotlight this week, after opposition parties filed a no-confidence motion in his government, hoping to bring him down. But now, the country is at a crossroads, and the nation is about to find out whether the former cricketer can stay in power. Opposition parties believe Mr. Khan lost the support of the country’s powerful military last year, and they’ve taken the matter to the Supreme Court.
After the no-confidence motion, the police raided the Parliament Lodges and expelled some Ansarul Islam members. Ansarul Islam is a volunteer force of the Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam-Fazl, which had been invited by opposition lawmakers to provide security. According to the police, they arrested four legislators and two dozen Ansarul Islam volunteers. However, the government has been in touch with the opposition and groups of dissenters.
The court has ordered Imran Khan to submit an affidavit and apologize to the court for the remarks. The case has become a cautionary tale for politicians and the public. The former premier has apologized for his remarks, but he has also threatened the courts and other political opponents.
The former prime minister appeared in court under tight security and expressed his desire to apologize to Chaudhry. He also sought permission to make his statement on record. Imran Khan is the chairman of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, a political party. The apology came after the high court indicted him.
Chief Election Commissioner
The chief election commissioner, retired Justice Sardar Muhammad Raza, disagreed with the ECP’s decision to accept the apology. He felt that there was evidence of disrespect for the vote. However, the election body is likely to issue a victory notification to Imran Khan in NA-53. The election commission also accepted the apologies of the National Assembly Speaker and the MMA leader Maulana Fazalur Rehman.
Imran Khan Apology: After the incident with Donald Lu, Pakistan’s defence minister, Khwaja Asif, claimed that Imran Khan’s party apologized to the US diplomat. He later tweeted that “America’s prayers now begin regularly.”
