LAHORE: Prominent lawyer and human rights activist Asma Jahangir said the Arsalan Iftikhar issue was a conspiracy hatched to threaten the judges, Geo News reported.
She was talking to reporters at the Lahore High Court. Asma said that the motive behind this was to wrap up the democratic setup and to threaten the judiciary, adding that those who created Tehrik-e-Insaf were the conspirators.
While expressing her displeasure over the selection of Raja Pervaiz Ashraf as the prime minister, she said a wrong message was conveyed to the nation as he was blamed for corruption in the rental power projects.
'If it was all about writing a letter, the court could have ordered the Attoney General or its Registrar Office to do that.' The destruction of one institution can trigger a chain reaction, she said.
