Nehal Hashmi video is another proof of tribalism in the country: Abdul Quayyum Kundi

Former member of PTI Chairman Advisory Committee and Central Tarbiyati Council, Abdul Quayyum Khan Kundi issued following statement on Nehal Hashmi video:

The video of PML-N Senator Nehal Hashmi released on social media threatening members of JIT and Judiciary is another confirmation of tribalism in the country. The major tribes in the country are political parties, military, judiciary, lawyers, bureaucracy, and oligarchs. Each tribe is busy expanding its influence and protecting its members while considering other tribes as threats to it. The weakest members in this fight of the tribal chiefs are political activists and citizens of the country. They are the ones bearing the consequences of this fight between tribal chiefs. Imran Khan, Asif Ali Zardari, Nawaz Sharif and Shahbaz Sharif can say or do anything but they are never convicted of contempt of court and remain immune from a reprisal. Similarly, son of a former Supreme Court Chief cannot be punished for questionable conduct and misuse of authority. Rejection tweet also goes unpunished while three civilians get sacked.

Judiciary is busy issuing labels but they seem to be unconcerned how lower judiciary are treating citizens and whether they are providing speedy and affordable justice. They are also unconcerned that growing incidents of mob justice is an indication people have lost confidence in the system of justice in the country. Their conduct on the bench should inspire confidence in the people that law is blind when it comes to imparting justice rather than part of a tribe that is in a struggle with another tribe.

Finally, I would like to know why Ch. Nisar is not interested in revealing the name of the person who made Nehal Hashmi video viral on social media. Chaudhry sb just a few days ago was quite concerned that social media is being used to malign institutions and unleashed his instrument FIA on political activists. When is he going to reveal the name of the person that made Nehal Hashmi video viral that was a direct threat to other institutions?

What Next?
