There are always at least two parties in the court. The court's decision has to be against one party. If that party is diciplined, they can say that they disagree with the decision, but will obey the orders of the court. No other remarks must be made against the court. But there are people like Malik Riaz in Pakistan, who attack the court. They belong to jail.
