Problem is not poverty or illiteracy rather rule of law and more than that it is the leading with example, it is not easy to build one’s character, you have to put bead by bead. One cannot get the truth in front of him his own way of thinking and complex can become a hurdle, rule of law gives birth to such atmosphere where crime cannot grow, not only punishment but also a sense of disrespect can eradicate crimes, when grip of law loses in societies then criminals become fearless.
There is a saying that justice delayed is justice denied, it has been the biggest dilemma in the judicial system of Pakistan that justice has often been delayed due to several reasons, case which starts from one generation ends up after 2 generations however credit goes to the current Chief Justice Lahore High Court Syed Mansoor Ali Shah for ensuring the provision of justice on time with every possible resource.
He ensured the process of justice by eliminating the habit of bribery, unnecessary strikes of lawyers, delaying the hearings of cases using excuses and by fulfilling the resources of the judiciary so that swift and cheap (cost efficient) justice can be served to people.

They demanded from Chief Justice Lahore High Court to establish this arbitration center on tehsil level so that people would not have to face any difficulty in the provision of justice so that arbitration could be done between the parties and future generations could live with peace and love.
