In an ongoing standoff between the bar and the bench, the enraged representatives of lawyers bodies have threatened to respond tit for tat if police again raid the houses of senior lawyers.
The threat was made unequivocally by District Bar Association Multan President Yousuf Zubair while he was speaking to the enraged lawyer. He was speaking to the lawyers at the district bar before leaving for Lahore to attend All Pakistan Lawyers’ convention, which is going to be held on Saturday (today).
Zubair is leading the delegation of lawyers from the district bar Multan who left for the provincial city on Thursday. Thousands of lawyers from Multan, Dera Ghazi Khan, and Bahawalpur divisions observed a complete strike and did not perform their duties to express solidarity with the Multan High Court Bar Association.
The lawyers continued their protest against cancellation of licence of Lahore High Court Bar Association Multan Chapter President Sher Zaman Qureshi and issuance of an arrest warrants as no attorney appeared before any court of law.
