LAHORE
Aurat Foundation paid tribute to Dr Justice (r) Javid Iqbal for his unforgettable support for human rights struggle.
He stood for the prevalence of justice and fair play. His sad demise has created a void destined which will remain unfilled for a long time. We have lost an intellectual, great jurist and a true Pakistani.
Speakers said that Justice Javid Iqbal had an inexhaustible career in the Judiciary of Pakistan and was a former chief justice of the Lahore High Court.
He had written papers on Islamic political thought, political ideology in Pakistan and the philosophy of his father, Allama Dr Muhammad Iqbal, which were published in national and international journals. Justice always supported the notions of the civil society to safeguard legal and basic rights of the citizen’s in Pakistan.
Aurat Foundation management committee member Sumaira Saleem said Justice Javid Iqbal in his life rendered great legal and literary services to the country.
We were shocked and grieved at the death of Justice Javid Iqbal. He was a good friend of Aurat Foundation and he always provided legal directions for accomplishment of amendments to discriminatory laws against women.
