ISLAMABAD: Representatives of the legal fraternity of the federal capital have denounced accusations of rowdyism and have asked not to be dragged into politics.
“Put all these rumours to rest,” said Shabbir Hassan, advocate Islamabad High Court (IHC), while trying to set fire to a tyre outside the premises of the Islamabad High Court. “There is not an iota of truth to any of them.”
“We respect the bench and are truly invested in healthy bar and bench relations,” said Siddique Hassan, another lawyer.
“Isn’t that true, Justice Saheb,” he asked the High Court judge in whose chambers Hassan was trying to figure out which television channel him and his friends could see the match.
“As far as the FIR registered against lawyers for allegedly breaking into the premises of the High Court, well, the FIR is rejected.”
