'Qazi Faez Isa Did The Right Thing By Attending Parliamentary Convention On Constitution'
The Parliament has the right to legislate on the subjects of the past too. If judges follow certain protocols to visit the Parliament, there's nothing wrong in doing so.

"Justice Qazi Faez Isa didn't talk about a personal matter in the Parliament; he represented his institution," Barrister Awais Babar told Khabar Say Aagay host Raza Rumi, on Monday.

On the suo motu saga, Babar termed the emerging difference of opinion in the apex court a good omen, saying "this will definitely lead us to something good."

Speaking on the occasion, another legal expert, Maryam S Khan said it seems CJ Bandial is dealing with Justice Isa on quite a personal level.

On the parliamentary session, she said the rest of the judges, too, should have participated in the event.

While speaking on the perpetual civil-military deadlock, Khan termed the debate of a full application of the Constitution 'positive'.

Reporter Waqar Satti highlighted that the Parliament was unanimous today that no one can bypass the Constitution.

Citing various examples, such as 18th constitutional amendment, analyst Murtaza Solangi stressed the need for more reforms in the Constitution.

Earlier today, Justice Isa – a senior Supreme Court judge – addressed the National Assembly as part of 50th anniversary of the Constitution.

At the advent of his speech, the learned judge made it clear that he was not in the Parliament to make a political speech.

Addressing the National Constitution Convention, Justice Isa said that he and the top court stood behind the Constitution.

Justice Isa called upon the participants to embrace the Constitution, saying “the most important thing the Constitution talks about is people’s basic rights.”

He highlighted that Pakistan’s Constitution talks about certain rights that are not talked about in several countries.

Justice Isa said that everyone [holding a public office] took an oath to defend the Constitution, adding he should be questioned if he doesn’t.
