In a panel discussion hosted by Zaheer Hussain Memon the chief of lawyers wing, renowned jurist, and Advocate of the Supreme court Haider Imam Rizvi said that common folk was mocking at the judicial system of Pakistan owing to the blatant loopholes in it and no one including the authorities concerned seemed serious to cater to these issues that were mounting with every passing day.

“The only way of appointing judges was to look over the seniority after he had qualified all other criteria encapsulated in the Constitution of Pakistan, if the unfair method continued this system would collapse under its own weight; he warned.
