Pak SC offers to assist in resolving ongoing political crisis
Pakistan's Supreme Court has asked PTI and PAT to respond to the court's offer to assist the protesting parties in resolving the ongoing political crisis.
During the hearing of a plea against extra-constitutional steps and sit-ins in the heart of Islamabad, the bench asked the counsel of both protesting parties to ask their party leadership what role they wanted the apex court to play in the present situation, the Dawn reported.
A visibly disturbed Justice Jawwad S Khwaja asked the council whether what was happening at the counsel was any different from any insurgency happening in FATA.
He said that senior counsel Hamid Khan has suggested taking suo motu and asked the council for their suggestion on the kind of suo motu action that needed to be taken.
