Terror in Lahore

Newspost

 
December 13, 2019

Hooliganism by lawyers in the name of registering their protest is not a new thing but this time around it transgressed all the ambits of decency and law. Just to satiate their egos and avenge their ‘dishonour’, lawyers, who are meant to be the guardians of the law, trampled that same law.

This disdainful act from a professional community that represents the law and constitution of a democratic country has caused the entire nation to hang their heads in shame and remorse. Even during wars, hospitals are off limits to aggression. The only other organized forces that have attacked hospitals so far are terrorist outfits. And lawyers have behaved like them. No one is above the law and it is time to show allegiance to rule of law and not tribalism. Hence, no one should get away scot-free. All involved and easily identifiable should be disbarred and prosecuted by the law to its fullest extent.
