The ruling has set example for all in settling disputes among different department of the state. The next generation will get a well structured constitution by his ruling.”
Addressing the opposition, he said, “The concept of negative politics is backdated now. Please, practice positive politics.’
Earlier on Monday, speaker Abdul Hamid termed the remarks of Justice of the High Court on his remark and discussion-criticism over the matter as melancholic and unexpected.

He said, “The remark made by the Justice on parliament is not decent and it is of personal attack and he should not mingle the whole judiciary in this matter.”

On June 5, the High Court said recent comment of Speaker Abdul Hamid Advocate about judiciary is ‘tantamount to sedition’.
Speaker should face sedition charge as he urged people to stand against judiciary, the HC elaborated.

The court also questioned about the speaker’s certificate as Bar member for his derogative remark.
Besides, the court also wanted to know whether he could use the title ‘advocate’ with his name as there is a temporary stay on his lawyer certificate.
