Supreme Court Justice Qazi Faez Isa, at a seminar at a university in Islamabad about the topic of “Pakistan’s Constitution, a symbol of national unity”, said Article 184/3 of the Constitution was meant to protect the oppressed and should not be misused for personal gain. He emphasized that the Supreme Court has the power to take up cases related to the public interest and the enforcement of fundamental rights under Article 184/3.
Justice Isa also stressed the importance of using this notice carefully and not abusing it, as it cannot be used to benefit anyone. He noted that every law provides for at least one appeal right, except for a constitutional appeal against Article 184/3. He further commented that history has taught us lessons seven times (from 1954 to 1999) and that if we fail to learn from history, it will repeat itself.
During his talk, Justice Isa highlighted the resilience of Pakistan’s Constitution, which has faced numerous challenges over the years. He also stated that if a decision is wrong, it will remain wrong, regardless of the majority’s support.
