ISLAMABAD: Former Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan said on Thursday that a confrontation with the country’s judiciary was not in Nawaz Sharif’s interest.
During a press conference in Taxila, Nisar said that courts in the country were giving correct decisions. He urged former prime minister Nawaz Sharif to take notice of statements that were criticising the judiciary.
“There shouldn’t be any sort of confrontation with the judiciary,” said Chaudhry Nisar. “We should go to the courts and fight our cases with dedication. If we do not get justice from one court, we will surely get it from another,” he added.
Nisar said that in democratic and civilized societies, decisions were given by the courts.
In response to a question regarding former president Asif Ali Zardari, Chaudhry Nisar said he would rather not give a reply.
“Asif Zardari also did not say anything when a question was put to him regarding me. Hence I would like to return the favor and not answer a question pertaining to him,” he added.
Nisar refuted speculations that PML-N was suffering from divisions within. The former interior minister said that he was not upset with the party leadership before the elections of 2013.
