Justice delayed is justice denied

65

Holy Qur’an says, “when you decide among people, decide with justice”. Finally the verdict for which the entire Pakistan was waiting has just appeared. The nation was awaiting for this verdict for a decade and after taking a colossal amount of time, the verdict seems to be contentious. Hearing the verdict, many intellectuals are raising questions about its credibility that only handful officers are decreed for life sentence.
There are many questions left to be answered: who are the real killers? Which hands are behind the assassination of BB? Who were the commanding officers who ordered wiping out the place of incident? The verdict has left many astounding questions and left people aghast. If a two-time prime minister {former} cannot be served with justice, then how justice can be dispensed to common people?
Thousands of cases are pending in our honourable courts, while people come in courts at a stretch and looking forward for justice for many decades. It is beseeched that every citizen should be served with justice in a timely manner, as it is the fundamental principle for making progress of any state. As Aristotle says, “Edifice of a country stands on justice”.
