Pakistani TV actress Iffat Omar criticizes Supreme Court in her latest tweet after the Supreme Court bench rejected the demand of PDM to let the full court bench hear the case against the ruling of Deputy Speaker Punjab Assembly during the election of Chief Minister for Punjab.

In her tweet, she said that the decision shows the obstinacy to make the decisions by force. She said your “bias is rejected.” Omar defended the decision of the Pakistan Democratic Movement to boycott the court proceedings after the Supreme Court had rejected their request. Adding that “politicians won’t fight their case by shedding blood, waving fists or pulling and scratching hairs.”

She countered questions from the netizens who said that the same Supreme Court had opened courts at night to hear the case against former Prime Minister Imran Khan. Adding that the Supreme Court had overturned the ruling of former Deputy Speaker National Assembly Qasim Suri and re-instated National Assembly allowing PDM to take over the federal government.

PDM and its supporters have been slamming the Supreme Court ever since their demand to form a full bench was rejected. They expressed distrust and lack of confidence in the bench hearing the case. A full-fledged press conference was organized by the PDM leaders with Maryam Nawaz passing some fierce statements against the judiciary.

Monday, PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz incessantly criticized the Supreme Court and its judges. While addressing a joint press conference, Maryam Nawaz said that “bench-fixing” is a crime similar to “match-fixing” and suo motu notice should be taken over it.

Flanked by several leaders of the coalition government and the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM), including Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari and JUI-F chief Maulana Fazl ur Rehman, Maryam criticized the country’s justice system and said that whenever a petition is filed in a court of law, people already know which bench will be formed to hear that.
