OUR STAFF REPORTER LAHORE - The Lahore High Court chief justice on Wednesday refused to entertain a civil miscellaneous petition challenging the appointment of Admiral retired Fasih Bokhari as chairman of the National Accountability Bureau. The court observed this during hearing that appointment of NAB chairman could not be challenged through a civil miscellaneous petition and the appointment of the NAB chairman could only be challenged through an independent writ petition, the CJ remarked. As Iqbal Jafri advocate challenged the appointment of NAB chairman through the miscellaneous petition submitting that Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) led federal government did not make consultation with Opposition, PML-N, and chief justice of Pakistan in the appointment of NAB chairman that was the violation of Constitution of Pakistan. This act of the government was a malafide practice, and he prayed the court to declare null and vide the appointment of Fasih Bokhari as NAB chairman. After hearing the arguments, the CJ dismissed the CM petition saying that no directions could be issued on CM petition and it directed the petitioner to file another writ petition before court along with necessary documentary evidences. Meanwhile, a fresh petition has been filed in the Lahore High Court challenging the title of 'My Lord for judges of superior courts and bowing in front of them during court proceedings. Sayed Feroz Shah Gillani filed the petition saying that on Nov 6, 1980 presidents order number 15 was promulgated by the then president of Pakistan in pursuance of a meeting attended by the chief justices of the superior courts and certain decisions were taken in the light of the views of Bar Associations according to the mode of address of the superior courts. The petitioner through Advocate AK Dogar added that in connection with para 4, the presidents order which has been printed in PLD 1981 Central Statute 231 as ' the use of the expressions 'my lord and 'lordship and like in relation to a judge shall be discontinued and he shall only be addressed 'sir or janab-e-wala or 'janab-e-ali or referred to in judgments, correspondence of other instruments as 'Mr Justice so and so or the like. He contended that there is an element of slavish mentality that prompts us to follow the line of our erstwhile rulers. He said that he had noticed number of times that the judge of high courts and supreme courts address their colleagues as 'My Lord, Mr Justice so and so, he said. Dogar said that he tried to bring it to the notice of lawyers that they should leave and stop this evil habit but they have not and the reason is that the lawyers also bow their heads before the judges at their rostrum while entering the courts. He said we think we have gained freedom after 1947 but actually we have not. He contended we are still salves of the west with bagging bowls in our hands. He said in US no judge is addressed as 'My Lord by any lawyer. It is un-Islamic to bow before God Almighty alone and not before man. He added that according to the Article 14 of the Constitution, the dignity of man is fundamental right of every citizen and he prayed the court to issue directions to the federal and provincial government to implement, Pakistan Bar Council, Lahore High Court Bar Association, to implement the president order restraining the lawyers not to use 'My Lord for judges and not to bow in front of them.
