I would like to congratulate Asma Jahangir for her historic victory in the election president, Supreme Court Bar Association. Every thoughtful Pakistani knows that Asma Jahangir is a renowned lawyer, human rights activist and supporter of genders equality.
She now has the honour of becoming the first female president of the SCBA. She was supported by senior liberal lawyers for this crucial election. The victory of Asma Jahangir is likely to inspire female lawyers and may open the doors for them at the top levels of our judicial system.
The female population has been deprived of its due share in the judiciary. At present there is not a single female judge in the Supreme Court.
I hope she works for the betterment of the female lawyers, judiciary and country.
