The Supreme Court on Tuesday issued a show-cause notice to PML-N leader Talal Chaudhry, ordering him to file his response before the court next week in a suo motu case pertaining to the “contemptuous speeches” made by the state minister.
Last week, Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar had taken suo motu notice of Chaudhry’s anti-judiciary speeches.
During his speech at PML-N’s rally in Jarranwala a week earlier, Chaudhry had said: “There was an era when the Kaabah was full of idols. Today, the judiciary, which is the country’s highest institution, is also full of PCO [Provisional Constitution Order] idols.”
“Mian Nawaz Sharif, throw them out, throw him out of the court. They will not give justice but will continue their injustices.”
