Justice Sharif, who did not take oath under the Provisional Constitutional Order (PCO), was talking to journalists here.

He supported the apex court decision to set aside the emergency in the country, and added that judges who did not take oath under the PCO were still united and determined to oppose the emergency and that they would never disappoint the masses in this regard.

Justice Sharif said that the government was increasing pressure on them but hoped that they would be firm and would not change their decision.

“We praise the movement started by the masses and lawyers against the government,” he said, adding that they knew that lawyers and the people were with them.

He said that the legal community would not become part of any political party, the Daily Times reported.

Justice Sharif demanded Musharraf to quit according to the Constitution and appoint Senate Chairman Muhammadmian Soomro as the President of the country in addition to lifting the emergency. (ANI)
