Lawyers protest against Asma Jehangir on becoming lawyer of Altaf Hussain


LAHORE: Lawyers were on the roads of Lahore on Tuesday to protest against Senior lawyer Asma Jehangir on becoming lawyer of Mutahidda Qaumi Movement cheif Altaf Hussain.

According to details, protesters were seriously angry over the decision made by Asma Jehangir, former president of Supreme Court Bar Association of Pakistan, to fight the Altaf Hussain’s case in the court.

They demanded to cancel the bar membership of Asma Jehangir as they were of the opinion that MQM chief was responsible of the outrage against lawyers back in 2007 when several lawyers were burnt alive in Karachi.

It is to be kept in mind that Altaf Hussain is under bunch of different big cases here in Pakistan and in England.
