ISLAMABAD: Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Mian Saqib Nisar has been receiving congratulatory messages from fellow lawyers and an interesting exchange took place between him and Barrister Aitzaz Ahsan on the topic during the hearing of a case.
Barrister Aitzaz Ahsan told Justice Nisar that he is “very grateful to him”. At this, the chief justice responded, “I highly respect you and always idolised you.”
“I wanted to be a student of Aitzaz Ahsan. However, I could not be his student but he used to appear in my courts and I never gave a decision in his favour,” Justice Nisar added.
Further, lawyer AG Raheem in his message to the top judge said, “I got the chance to learn a lot from the chief justice.”
The chief justice further said, “The state should treat citizens with an open heart and should protect citizens at all times.”
Justice Nisar will retire from his post on January 17.
