Students, scholars urged to play role in rule of law

Justice Chaudhry Khalid Rasheed of Azad Jammu and Kashmir High Court has urged the students and scholars neither to adopt an overly simplistic approach nor subscribe to social media channels which spread misinformation for establishment of rule of law and restoration of public trust in state institutions.

He expressed these views while delivering a special lecture on “Criminal Law: Challenges and Opportunities” organised by Punjab University Institute of Social & Cultural Studies (ISCS) here on Monday. PU ISCS Director Prof Dr Rubeena Zakar, faculty members and a large number of students were present on this occasion. In his address, Justice Khalid Rasheed, who is a distinguished alumnus of PU, presented a comprehensive scholarly discourse on the critical issues of rule of law in Pakistani society.
