Politicizing of judiciary will be collective loss, Ahsan Iqbal

Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal on Saturday tweeted that politicization of the judiciary will be the country’s collective loss.
The Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) was responding to the Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar’s criticism of the government of Punjab during the hearing of Punjab’s laptop distribution scheme.
Justice Nisar had expressed his dissatisfaction with the provincial government’s performance and also issued a warning to the government officials to mend their ways ‘while they still had time.’
“Honourable Chief Justice! It is for the people of Punjab to judge [the] performance in the upcoming elections. How can you make such statements just before [the] general election? Is judiciary a political party?” Iqbal tweeted.
