“Iftikhar Chaudhary’s movement is why lawyers think they are above the law”, states Saad Rasool
“I wore this uniform with a heavy heart so I could restore some of its respect,” Saad Rasool.
”I believe that there is no other way to regain the trust and confidence of the people until someone from the lawyers’ fraternity comes forward and condemns this inhumane act”, Saad Rasool.
FIR should be filed against all the people who are directly or indirectly involved in the violent protest, he demanded.

Saad Rasool, a Lahore-based lawyer, has an LLM in Constitutional Law from Harvard Law School. He is also a writer for The Nation and regularly appears on media in the capacity of a legal expert.
Recently, during an interview with a local TV channel, he expressed his views regarding the PIC incident.
”I especially wore this uniform today to call those killers out, killers who are formally known as ‘lawyers’ in our society”, Saad Rasool said.
“I wore this uniform with a heavy heart so I could restore some of its respect,” Saad Rassol.
Saad believes that there is no other way to regain the trust and confidence of the people until someone from the community of the lawyers comes forward and condemns this inhumane act.
He further said that Iftikhar Chaudhry’s movement had a bad impact on our society. He demanded that an FIR should be filed against all the people who are directly or indirectly involved in violent protests.
”I also have some complaints about the judicial system of this country. In the past, no strict actions have been taken against the lawyers who were involved in such incidents, which further encouraged them”.
”Many people have lost their lives. The irony is that people responsible for the PIC incident belong to my profession. They belong to my community”.
He said that he personally knows many respected lawyers, including Azam Nazir Tarar and Ahsan Bhoon, who are trying for the bail of the arrested lawyers.
In the end, he stated he believes all the Judicial bar owners and senior lawyers are equally responsible for the incident.
