ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf chairman Imran Khan has refused to tender an apology in the contempt of court case, DawnNews reported.

“I am ready to go to the jail but I will not apologise,” khan said.

Khan has said that he will not back down from his stance till his last breath and will not apologise even if he is declared ‘ineligible’ and sent to jail.

He said that the Supreme Court made a big mistake by taking notice of ‘contempt of court’.

“If the need arises, I will take up Aitzaz Ahsan’s offer,” he commented.

He further said that Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry had become controversial after the Arsalan Ifitikhar case.

The Supreme Court, in the notice issued to the Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaf (PTI) chief, has said that Khan apparently had tried to incite hatred against the apex court in one of his interactions with the media.

A three-judge bench of the Supreme Court, headed by Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry, will hear the case on Friday.

Khan meets Kerry

Meanwhile, US Secretary of State John Kerry on Thursday met with Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan during which the latter raised the issue of drone attacks.

In a statement a PTI spokesman said Imran Khan told John Kerry that the drone strikes are not only a violation of the country's sovereignty and international law but also are counter-productive.

The PTI chief also urged the United States to take all stakeholders including Pakistan into confidence on the issue of withdrawing from Afghanistan.

In this connection Imran Khan said the United States should halt hostilities in that country.

During the meeting, the PTI chief also spoke with US Secretary of State about the situation in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and the difficulties being faced by the provincial government.

Khan has been a vocal critic of US drone policy in Pakistan and has repeatedly demanded an end to drone strikes.

In a television interview later, Kerry said of the drone strikes: “I think the program will end as we have eliminated most of the threat and continue to eliminate it.”

“I think the president has a very real timeline and we hope it's going to be very, very soon,” he told Pakistan Television, when asked whether the US had a timeline for ending drone strikes, aimed at militants in Pakistan.

US drone missiles have targeted areas near the Afghan border including North Waziristan, the main stronghold for various militant groups aligned with al Qaeda and the Taliban, since 2004.

Pakistanis have been angered by reports of civilian casualties and what they see as an abuse of their sovereignty.

Mr. Iftikhar Chaudhry is getting too big for his shoes. He is hurting nascent democracy and is undermining institutions as well as free speech. he deems himself honest and believes that it gives him right to look down upon everyone else. it is better for nation if he goes home. I am not sure if he is posturing for after retirement.

The SC had taken good decisions in the past but has ignited hatred against itself by the actions it has taken in the recent past. IK is not igniting anything he is speaking the truth and most of the people agree with him and also with Aitzaz Ahsan.The SC started loosing credibility after the Arsalan case.

I don't get this contempt law to begin with, at least not the way it is practiced in Pakistan. Why is it a crime to comment on the proceedings or the conduct of the justices ? It doesn't make any sense. It's not like anyone is commenting on the justices's personal lives. The Justices are conducting public business and the folks have a right to comment on it. Commenting to the merits of the actual comment, what he said was spot on. If a man hole cover goes missing the CJ issues a suo moto but was mum about the facade that was the election.

Drone is the only instance in which Imran Khan is totally wrong. What should US do if Pakistan itself cannot control North Waziristan and allow it a terrorist heaven from which they operate with impunity and attack not only Afghanistan but Pakistani targets. Imran Khan lives in Fools Paradise and thinks that US will not retaliate against these murderes and thugs.

The current chief justice has no doubt done some good work. However, he must be careful in not creating the perception of undue interference in country's politics. Too many contempt of court notices do not serve their intended purpose and are counter productive. Respect is earned through good work and not through contempt of court notices. The current judges of the apex court should ask themselves the question as to why Imran Khan, a staunch supporter of judiciary, not happy with the current happenings. Let politics run its course and honourable judges should be able to listen to constructive criticisms. It happens all over the world.

Imran is definitely playing on the wrong wicket. If he takes up Aitzaz Ahsan's offer then he is simply playing in the hands of PPP. There is no point in being just stubborn. He must prove that whatever he said was right and support it by facts. If he cannot then he must apologize as a man and no sky will fall. His statement against Supreme Court decision reflect immaturity. Instead of wasting time on such matters he should pay attention to KPK problems. All those individuals who were part of the movement for restoration of judiciary have become a liability and made the habit of taking Chief justice for granted. They want decisions of their liking. Life would have been much easier for CJ if he had cooperated with Musharraf. I have started to believe that politicians like Imran were not there for restoration of judiciary but for their own promotion.

I couldn't agree more with the stance taken by Mr. Khan. This court is neither just nor fair. Right from they day of their new roles as so called "independent Judiciary" they have gone rouge. Please tell me one thing this court has done that have changed the situation in Pakistan? Same elite are ruling, common man is suffering, justice is still not available and if it is available, it is only to those who can efford it. This is big miscalculation on the part of Mr. Chaudhry and the one which is going to have severe outcome for the court. Mr. Chaudhry is loosing his credibility with every day passing.

Another example of bad reporting: "The Supreme Court, in the notice issued to the Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaf (PTI) chief, has said that Khan apparently had tried to incite hatred against the apex court in one of his interactions with the media."

Which interaction with the media was it that the apex court had taken this action against. Stories like this only serve to show that Dawn reporting lack depth and clarity -- 'chaloo' work at best.

I seriously believe that Imran Khan still has concussion and after effect of his fall. Why is he taking the PUNGA with the Judiciary? And if he has a concern, he should act in the civilized and dignified manner and fight it in the courts instead of through media. He is turning out to be same washed up politician who likes to issue off the cuff statements. I guess he has 4 more years till the next elections, and then he will start talking sense again. I hope so!

Malik
August 2, 2013 1:10 am

Khan has a principaled stand in this matter. The Supreme Court is only determined to exercise one kind of jurisdiction i.e. suo moto, and ignoring its appellate jursdiction altogether. Supreme Court's job is not to legislate but to interpret the laws according to what the legislature had enacted. In many countries, the judges of the supreme court does not even read the daily newspapers, does not join any country club, or associate themselves with any social meetings. Here, it seems our learned judges read all kinds of papers, and watches the news headline. They made clearly a controvertial decision by interfering in purely and administrative matters of election commission where the CEC also resigned. It is good and high time Chief Justice should resign from this post. The Supreme Court has embroiled the country in very difficult positions and stands. Imran is right again. Anyone should be free to criticize a court decision. A genuine criticism is not "spreading hate".

I am an admirer of Khan's political maturity and love for true wisdom with a blend of firm faith in his resolves. He is pack of inspiration. However, the selective justice by Chaudry of Justice is going to be exposed by this recent move.

The entire judicial verdicts, prima facie, supported none other But Mr Sharif, the noble businessman. It is time to see the real face of so-called independent judiciary that never spoke a word further about its acceptable decisions on Younus Habib issue, Hudaiba paper mills, Qarz Utaroo and and and many many other things of their business. Time for the biased judiciary to be exposed as it was doomed to.

You know there was a time when I was a lover of Chaudhry Iftikhar and equated him with IK as bright hope to save the country. But recently the light on the character and selective whims of Justice has revealed that it was Noora Justice to Nawaz only a handful of PMLN Folks of bigwigs.

Khan, Go and blow this hollow judiciary in pieces we are ready for Tehreer and Tehreer Squire.

It's not so difficult for an ordinary people to see what our judiciary is doing now a days. It's an irony to see how SC and judiciary is planning to punish those who fought for it's restoration when it was sacked by Gen Musharaf. Now SC from whom people had high hopes that it will serve justice by investigating the irregularities in the May 11 elections, is planning to punish IK who is trying to unite this country and demanding same level playing field for everyone. Imran's demands are aboslutely fair. By punishing Imran, judiciary honour will not be restored however, it's credibilty will further go up on the stake. Contempt of court should not used to silence people and curtail the freedom of expression.

August 2, 2013 3:25 am

Dear Sir I would like to start this comment by thanking you for all your services in reviving and creating the awareness among the masses in Pakistan of the importance of an Independent Judiciary. The lawyers movement and media support has ensured that Judiciary will have eternal support in times of crisis. However, I believe that lately a biased approach towards certain areas like the Presidential election date change, too much focus on Musharraf’s trial and recently Imran Khan’s contempt of court charges are undoing all the good work. It seems that the lines are blurred between freedom of expression and contempt of court described by Joseph Moscovitz, in an often quoted article in the Columbia Law Review, as “the Proteus” (A mythological sea god capable of changing shape at will). Do you not agree that it is time to gracefully retire with the legacy still intact?

Rashid
August 2, 2013 4:57 am

*This is true test of a leader; how to handle a awkward situation which is created by himself. what happened tomorrow or in coming days? there can be multiple possibilities and assumptions. One of the assumption is that IK can become guilty which is likelihood as whichever is the court & rule he will be victim. In the court there will be legal battle instead of emotional /provoking arguments. As a result his party will launch a protest that will be also required party resources/ attention especially much support/ time from KPK which results in bad governance in the province. And it will badly hurt his position, to change in the system .Moreover, he can lose municipal elections in KPK and Punjab especially in Kci. One can assume that the court has been overthrown as a result of protest that may took six months or so. CJ , symbol of current judiciary, is going to retire in Dec(if I am right) and chief election commissioner has already resigned(now it is time to reorganize EC) .Then there will be no fuel for protest and the movement came to an hopeless end. And his rivals will enjoy this. And IK will not take part in next election.(for PTI leadership matters a lot) Here are some suggestions :- 1. PTI has appoint some spokesman that they may use popular political statements. It is not necessary for leader to respond immediately 2. Leadership can respond and deliver its written precise statement in accordance with party's policy. As this is action time.(people are waiting for a miracle from PTI). 3. PTI is in position in KPK his spokesmen and representative should be careful as party may face difficult position to prove it.(otherwise it will be conventional way just to make a statement) In public, leadership always accompanies a trained spokesman to make a good justified statement as situation.****** **In past there can be find many examples for such situations(no need to repeat). Any situation can be but media trial of the Leader its party continues which may reveal some bitter truths. And it can damage its cause/ support and fame.

Be a responsible media and tell the truth because the headline you just made its wrong. Judiciary didn't ask Imran Khan to come to the court and apologise, the hearing was only about the explanation of the word used by Imran Khan (shameful). http://www.zemtv.com/2013/08/02/court-letter-in-my-opinion/

Syed
August 3, 2013 12:21 am

First of all Imran Khan wasn't call by judiciary to apologise and second he was just called in using one word (shameful). read below...

Court Letter (in my opinion)

I Imran Khan talked about (Shameful Act) for those individuals whom were responsible for 11th May elections, election commission and RO’s act behalf of judiciary system being a reason for feeling ashamed rigging election with proving evidence which leads to deserving blame to those whom part of it.

On 11th May election the crime figures are (Shameful) and Imran Khan as an elected member of parliament and voted by people of Pakistan this is his duty to come out and tell the truth to people of Pakistan that what is the reality and who is responsible as part of his job.

The word (Shameful) used by Imran Khan isn’t bad or swearing word to disrespect the respected Judiciary of Pakistan but a word being used to tell how people of Pakistan feels.

The people were appointed by Judiciary and Election Commission didn’t follow the constitution of Pakistan and by rigging the election (shameful) being a reason for deserving blame. so there for instead asking Imran Khan who has duty to tell the public of Pakistan the truth why not the Supreme Judiciary should ask those who were responsible for this shameful act (disapproving) the mandate of people of Pakistan.

I Imran Khan hope that Supreme Judiciary shall do the justice against this shameful means (disapproving) act by anyone even if he is member judiciary or anyone and everyone should be treat equally by Pakistan law and with true justice.

Yours Sincerly

Imran Khan

Analyst on today hearing: In my opinion Supreme court allegation and passing comments of using a word (Shameful) by Imran Khan actually goes against them as it feels like they trying to keep a secret or feel guilty.

Judges are not infallibles. When they do anything wrong (which they always do), people have a right to voice their objection, what else is called freedom of speech. The supreme court instead of wasting time and money on petty issues of their own making, should rather work on thirty thousand pending cases as stated by the chief justice himself.

I thoroughly enjoy reading the comments of all fans of PTI &Imran Khan. Against CJ when Musharaf took action, Faisal Abidi shouted on TV shows and in Sennett and Altaf Hussain cried over the judicial biases no one supported them. CJ, the cousin of Rana SanaUllah (PMLN) has done nothing for Pakistan except to gain his own interests & people like Imran Khan, Aitizaz Ahsan and last but not least Shareef Brothers have gained their political benifits by using the issue of independant Judiciary. Shame on all such people who have excavated for others and are now falling in the same ditch.

Why he was not being honest in Ayla Malik's fake degree case? She should have been removed by now.

@Hassan Awan: I respectfully disagree with your statement Mr Awan. Imran has been acting like a statesman for quite some time. The latest threats to him do not help the country internationally. Many people (me included) where hoping for Imran to be the next PM so that things can get moving. Its a shame others do not see this. I am concerned that the party in power is using all channels to discredit him at all costs. Even if these costs mean the country. Very concerning indeed.

@Shaheed: If Supreme Judicial Council had accepted Musharraf's reference against CJ,which was based on facts,Pakistan would have been much better off today,with the dollar still at Rs 60 or even less.

Imran Khan is not part of this corrupt system that is why he is asked for reply and he refused to apology... Actually the thing is that whenever a true, dedicated and devoted person try to change the corrupt system, he is caught by SC or any other high authority. That is why we are still 3rd world. Pakistan needs a true leader who make this country a peaceful land for which Quaid dreamed. We are with IK in this war. He is a brave and courageous leader and he keeps even super power at arm length in this regard as he always ask to stop drone attacks. No other one dare to talk on drone attacks issue n about Pakistan sovereignty. Because they all are corrupt and they just come to fill their Swiss banks. They are totally unaware of a common man problems. They won the election through unfair means and ways and even a lay man in the street know it. Is our Chief Justice is blind ??? Why he is doing this all with true leaders like Musharraf n Imran Khan ??? Or he is just taking dictation from Mr.Nawaz Sharif ??? We will leave no stone unturned for our right while living in a so called democratic country. We will come out of our homes on the time of need. There were rigging in elections and we want justice from Apex Court.

The Chief Justice of Pakistan has become controversial and should retire for the following reasons 1. Allowed his son to use the Official Residence of the Chief Justice for registering his business address. 2. Using Sue-motto on more occasions that is necessary for the Supreme Court. 3. He desire to stifle criticism to Court conduct relating to "Show cause notices" 4 Has politicised his office.
