Sukkur (Pakistan) : Chief Justice of Pakistan Anwar Zaheer Jamali asserted that the country failed to achieve the dreams of its founders, largely because of insincere and dishonest politicians.
“Our [successive] generations have failed miserably in materialising the dreams of our ancestors,” the Express Tribune quoted him as saying while addressing the legal fraternity of Larkana on Saturday.
“Muslims and Pakistanis are taken as the most incapable people and the forces behind this perception are known to everyone,” he said.
The top judge asserted that countries created after 1947 had even surpassed Pakistan in development.
“We, as a nation, have failed to create unity and solidarity among our ranks. [But] other nations have been quite fortunate to have sincere and honest leaders, which we lack,” he said.
He also urged the government to initiate development projects to generate employment.
Though he appreciated the media for highlighting public issues, the chief justice said there were still some black sheep within the media organisations who manipulated things. (ANI)
