Lahore High Court Chief Justice (CJ) Muhammed Qasim Khan Tuesday said provision of quick and cheaper justice to litigants was need of the hour. Addressing an event organized at Rawalpindi High Court Bar to bid farewell to retiring justices Tariq Abbasi and Mushtaq, the CJ said that it was incumbent on the judiciary to provide speedy justice to the weak and downtrodden segment of society. “The times have changed: even the educated and socio-economically well off citizens are now turning to the courts for justice,” he noted. Qasim Khan said that delivery of justice was our main objective. “Speedy justice does not mean to bulldoze the justice. There should be no unnecessary dates. If the judge does not perform his duty properly, action will be taken against him according to the law,” he added. The chief justice warned the judiciary of dire circumstances if the people lose their faith in the country’s judicial system. He also ensured his full support to resolve the problem faced by the lawyers fraternity.
