This Indian wants five Pakistani judges in exchange for all judges of the Indian Supreme Court

An Indian on twitter has requested Pakistanis if they will take all the 22 judges of the Indian Supreme Court in exchange for five Pakistan Supreme Court judges, headed by Justice Asif Saeed Khoosa. He was referring to the same bench that disqualified former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif in the panama papers corruption case.

Pakistani’s had some witty replies to Mr. Madhusudan Thakkar’s tweet.

Atif Murtaza went far ahead in generosity and offered Nawaz Sharif, Maryam Nawaz Sharif and Bilawal Zardari for free with the judges.

Mr. Thakar respectfully declined the counter offer saying India already had grandfathers of such politicians and that he was only interested in the upright judges who gave the historic verdict against Nawaz Sharif.

Urooj Fatima however, wasn’t ready to permanently exchange her favourite judges and instead offered if India would be willing to take them for a short period of time and have them returned “after justice is served”.

Mr. Madhusudan gladly accepted this offer.

Pakistani superior judiciary has taken an activist role as of late and have disqualified a serving prime minister over corruption charges. The judges routinely take suo motto notice on all issues that are of public importance.

The activist role of the judiciary has its critics though. A section of society is against this activist role of the judiciary. The deposed prime minister Nawaz Sharif is at the forefront in criticizing the judges contending that the judiciary is encroaching on the executive powers.

A huge segment of the society however is in favour of the active role of the Pakistani judiciary. The proponents argue that the executive isn’t doing its job which is why the judiciary has to take action under article 184 (3) of the constitution to protect the rights of the citizens of Pakistan.
