ISLAMABAD - Shahid Afridi has advised Chief Justice of Pakistan for introspection within the institution of judiciary headed by the top judge.
The star all-rounder took to Twitter to congratulate the chief justice for doing a "remarkable job", saying his surprise visits to public facilities such as hospitals and colleges "have been of great service to the nation".
Afridi suggested in the same breath, however, that Justice Nisar should also take out time to visit lower courts "so that he can fix the black sheep [sic] within as well".
The apex court, under its 2018 era is focusing on human rights issues, particularly those relating to the people’s right to quality education and healthcare. However, this course of action is also being seen as an overstepping of boundaries, similar to the Iftikhar Chaudhry era.
The chief justice has stood by the court's actions, reiterating that such criticism will not deter him from exercising what he considers is his "constitutional right".
