Federal Minister Fawad Chaudhry lands in hot waters

ISLAMABAD – Sarena Isa, wife of Supreme Court judge Justice Qazi Faez Isa, on Monday filed a contempt petition against Federal Minister for Science and Technology Chaudhry Fawad Hussain over his remarks against the judge.

Sarena moved the Supreme Court two days after the PTI minister shared a tweet about Qazi Faez Isa. On March 19, the federal minister (without naming Justice Qazi Faez Isa) asked the under trial judge to resign from his office and take part in councilor’s election so he can determine his popularity.

“We have been hearing speeches of an under-trial Supreme Court judge for a week, but accusation of contempt of court would be made against us if we respond to it,” Chaudhry said in a tweet.

Meanwhile on Monday, #IStandWithFawadChaudhary remained the top trend in Pakistan.
