Pakistanis Are Applauding Justice Khosa's Impressive Remarks In The Asia Bibi Case Judgment

By Sarmad Amer | 31 Oct, 2018

Justice Khosa stole the show

 

As the Supreme Court overturned Asia Bibi’s conviction today, the country’s fallen into a bit of a chaos

While may are lauding the Supreme Court for standing at the right side of history and making a landmark decision of acquitting a falsely accused person, religiously conservative factions are angry at the lost opportunity to carry out the first court mandated execution under Pakistan’s extremely controversial blasphemy law.

The judgment is being hailed as landmark but of particular note is Justice Asif Saeed Khosa’s additional note

Justice Khosa is known to have been part of the Supreme Court benches in other landmark cases, like the case against former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s illegal investments – known as the “Panama Case”.

 

People are impressed with Justice Khosa’s choice of words, his eloquence and his use of religious and literary references to make his argument

 

People are celebrating his “guts” and courage in the face of adverse conditions and tough decisions

 

And they’re certainly looking forward to his tenure as the next Chief Justice of Pakistan

 

Justice Khosa is poised to become Pakistan’s next Chief Justice once the incumbent, Chief Justice Saqib Nisar retires on January 17, 2019 and by the looks of it, many Pakistanis are eagerly waiting for Justice Khosa to take charge of the judiciary.

 

Did you read the judgment? What are your thoughts on this case?
