Maryam declares CJP a ‘threat to national security’


Pakistan Muslim League-N Senior Vice President Maryam Nawaz has strongly criticised Chief Justice of Pakistan Umar Ata Bandial, warning him to be prepared for a political reaction if he uses his position to serve the “political agenda” of former prime minister and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan.

The hard-hitting reaction came after the Islamabad High Court granted Imran Khan interim bail for two weeks in the Al-Qadir Trust case on Friday.

In her tweet, Maryam said that being the chief justice does not mean handing over the state to someone who has burned every symbol of national dignity and defence using his hired goons.

She stated that protecting such a person from arrest in any case, treating him as a royal guest, and praising him is an insult not only to every Pakistani but also to the martyrs and veterans whose every symbol has been attacked.

“Chief Justice sahib! You are no longer a symbol of justice. You have become a threat to the Constitution, the rule of law, and national security. After becoming a facilitator of a terrorist who plays with the destiny of the country, you have lost your dignity,” Maryam said.
