PBC slams action against lecturers joining protests
LAHORE, June 29(Daily Times): The Punjab Bar Council (PBC) on Thursday denounced the
government for issuing suspension show cause notices to several professors and
lecturers for taking part in the lawyers' movement. Representatives of the PBC
said that the government was confused and was taking various steps to sabotage
the lawyers' movement, which they could not. They said teachers who trained the
Pakistani youth should not be victimised, as it was their fundamental right to
protest against the unconstitutional steps of the government.
PBC vice chairman
Tariq Javed Warraich and members Muhammad Kazim Khan, Rashid Rizvi, Rana Abdul
Shakoor, Yasin Sohail and Lahore Bar Association president Muhammad Shah alleged
that the fire at the parliament in Islamabad was started to burn the records of
the Public Accounts Committee (PAC). They demanded the PAC keep its records safe
so that the committee could punish corrupt government officials. They also
demanded civil jobs be given to civilians and not military personnel.
