Nisar orders probe into social media campaign against upcoming CJ Saqib Nisar
The decision to hunt social media buffs came after a letter by Attorney General for Pakistan (AGP) Secretary Khalid Khan Niazi requested the ministry in the wake of various images making rounds over the internet.
One such image shows President Mamnoon Hussain, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa Governor Iqbal Zafar Jhagra. As soon as the image was uploaded, people were duped into mistaking Zafar Iqbal Jhagra for Saqib Nisar due to an uncanny resemblance between the two.
“The said image is also being captioned with incorrect, misleading and slanderous allegations with respect to the CJP-designate Mian Saqib’s professional capabilities,” the letter says.
“Sharing of the image under such pretences also constitutes an attack on the superior judiciary of Pakistan, which adds to the gravity of the criminal acts. This trend needs to be checked,” the letter continued.
Moreover, a bevy of lawyers and legal experts also sought to investigate and put an end to the smear campaign against CJP-designate Mian Saqib Nisar who will be assuming office on December 31st.
