Chief Justice of Pakistan Qazi Faez Isa held an interesting conversation with the lawyer in the land dispute case and scolded the advocate for speaking Urdu and English language to complete his arguments.
The top judge said: “You have killed two languages, brief your argument in Urdu elsewhere speak full English.”
He remarked: “Pathans are the best and you will find nowhere else as much morals there. But the only thing about the Pathans is that they carry on enmity for a long time.”
“I don't think the bench will agree on this,” said the Chief Justice looking at the fellow judges. The remark brought laughter in the courtroom.
CJP Isa further added: “We have to stop amateur litigation.”
