Where has gone now the so-called Shariah which Ansar Abbasi was trying to defend while defending Sufi Muhammad, Flogging and Taliban while reciting Quranic Verses of Surah-e-Nur[AL-NOOR (THE LIGHT) Chapter 24 from Quran] and what a fun he was reciting Surah Nur Verses to an Unveiled [BAYPARDAH] GEOTV News READER [I wonder where have gone all the verses of Quran regarding Veil]..
Reaction of Ansar Abbasi about Swat girl flogging

Read, what is being said about Ansar Abbasi by a Judge and this was also said on Dunya News Channel. Since Mr Ansar Abbasi is very fond of Shariah therefore it would be more than appropriate to flog Ansar Abbasi for heresy and rumor mongering rather outright character assassination

CJ IHC strongly refutes all allegations against himself
ISLAMABAD: The CJ of IHC (Islamabad High Court), Muhammad Bilal Khan has strongly refuted all allegations against himself regarding having any connections with notorious criminal Nannu Gawaria.

In a letter dispatched to the SJC (Supreme Judicial Council), the CJ, IHC has taken notice of certain allegations leveled against his person by secretary SJC, on 28th March 2008, as made public through newspapers and videotapes, terming the move as an endeavor to malign his career and reputation, alongwith move against Supreme Judiciary. He has alleged that, since he was a member of the Lahore High Court Bench, which had declared Mian Nawaz Sharif as disqualified, his brother Mian Shahbaz Sharif had used derogatory remarks against him (Justice Bilal Khan) in public gatherings and TV channel interviews.

Mian Nawaz Sharif had even gone to the extent of expressing his desire of " thrashing me (Justice Bilal Khan) in the Arabian Sea" he contended, adding that CPO Gujranwala Zulfiqar Cheema was bent on proving his die-hard loyalties to Mian Nawaz Sharif for the sake of his police career. In his 16-point letter, the CJ, IHC has also accused journalist Ansar Abbassi of mud slinging and stern remarks against Supreme Judiciary, citing his earlier derogatory and highly inflammatory report against former CJ, Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry in 2007, which perpetuated the reference against CJ (Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry). Again it was Ansar Abbasi, who launched media campaign against the outgoing Chief Justice of Pakistan, Abdul Hameed Dogar, he added. He further said that it was yet again none else than Ansar Abbasi, who tried to malign Justice Sardar Muhammad Raza Khan, Justice Fakir Muhammad Khokhar, Justice Shakir Ullah Jan and Justice Tassadaq Hussain Jilani, accusing them of being involved in the so-called plot scandal.

This accusation was false, and no action was taken against them. It may be recalled that when the appointment of Justice of Sardar Muhammad Raza Khan as Chief Justice of Pakistan was being talked about, Ansar Abbasi published a write up aimed at raising a controversy about the judge. He said that it is in the same vein that when his predecessor was due to superannuate on 8th of March 2009 and his (Bilal Khan’s) name was being considered as his successor, Ansar Abbasi’s devil instinct once again precipitated. "There is not even an iota of truth in what has been written by Ansar Abbasi, he said, adding that "the material provided to me is deficient in many ways i.e it does not indicate as to when was this person (Faiz Rasool alias Nannu Goraya) present in Dubai, and to which night club I had accompanied them and to which hotel I was taken for the "purpose". He said that during his last visit to Dubai, his wife and daughter-in-law accompanied him and throughout they stayed together.

"It is so interesting that Zulfiqar Cheema used his imagination regarding purchase of a diamond necklace for the marriage of my daughter, although she got married in January 2007 and by the grace of God was blessed with a son in December 2007. "Zulfiqar Cheema even went to the extent of illegally detaining father of Ashfaq Bajwa, who was in such adverse circumstances, approached through Syed Ali Mohsin Naqvi, SP (CIA) to make a statement regarding my alleged links with Nannu Goraya" he said. It was on account of this foreknowledge that the Chief Justice, Lahore High Court, did not deem it appropriate to take any further steps in the matter on the press clippings.

It goes without saying that in the entire fake story was cooked up by Zulfiqar Cheema, and the only legal document in the field is the statement of Ashfaq Bajwa made before a Court of law, in the face of which penal action merits to be taken against Zulfiqar Cheema and other concerned police officials. A bare look at the video footage, worthless as it is, leaves no room for doubt that it has been extracted under extreme pressure, influence and indubitably in a state of total disorientation. He said that the video footage is of no consequence as there is no mechanism to satisfy a judicial mind that the voice recorded is that of the so-called Nanu Goraya nor it is ascertainable that the person shown to have been making the statement was, in fact, the person named Nannu Goraya. A 13-member Bench of the Apex Court had expressed as recently as in the year 2007, it scorn, displeasure and disdain for such like material.

The advocate-on-Record attempting to produce such material was not only reprimanded and burdened with fine of Rs. One lac but also had his license suspended. He said that Zulfiqar Cheema was a crafty Police officials, who had also failed to disclose the name of "Sitting MPA (PPP) from Gujranwala city who had allegedly laid information before him and had also withheld the names of the so called dozens of other well informed persons including some journalists. He said that he must state with conviction and faith as a Muslim that the allegations against him were totally false and intended to damage his personal reputation and standing as a judge. "Speaking for myself, if these allegations had an air of truth, I would loath to hang on to the office that I hold, "he held.

Ansar Abbasi & Jang Group Illegally Tape the Phones of Citizens & Judges - 2 (9 Apr 2009)

ISLAMABAD: Chief Justice of Islamabad High Court (IHC) Justice M Bilal Khan Monday submitted his reply to the Supreme Judicial Council (SJC) to the allegations levelled against his alleged links with the underworld mafia. In his eight-page reply, he confirmed that the SJC secretary had sent him press clippings along with audio and video CDs of the allegations levelled against him. He said the publications were false and a crude and abhorrent attempt to malign him and scandalise the superior judiciary at a time when he was being considered for appointment as IHC chief justice. He said the backdrop of events in which the publications came into being had to be kept in view, as he was the member of the Lahore High Court (LHC) bench which had disqualified Sharif brothers from electoral politics on June 23, 2008.

Just after the decision, he said, the Sharif brothers made speeches against him at public gatherings as well as on the television channels in which they maligned him. On different occasions, he said, Nawaz Sharif said that he would throw Justice Bilal in the ocean, whereas Shahbaz Sharif hurled abuses at him (Bilal) during his public meetings in Gujranwala and also in TV interviews.

He said Zulfiqar Cheema played the role of henchman of Sharif brothers who would go any length to please his bosses and as a reward he was given the coveted assignment of Regional Police Officer (RPO) and City Police Officer of Gujranwala simultaneously although he was not qualified to hold the office of RPO under Police Order 2002.

He said he was heading a full bench of the LHC on the issue of law and order situation, which had held that many police officers including Zulfiqar Cheema had been posted in the Punjab province to the positions for which they did not qualify.

He said the allegations levelled against him by Mr Cheema that he had links with underworld mafia and was protecting them were highly malicious and a bundle of lie. Justice Bilal also termed all the news published and screened by media against him as baseless and malicious.

The third in line, Justice Bilal said, is journalist Ansar Abbasi, who has always spat venom against the superior judiciary and got away with it. It seems he is thriving professionally on this modus operandi, he said and added that it was this Ansar Abbasi, who initiated the vilification campaign against the Chief Justice of Pakistan in 2007 and his utterances in the media ultimately metamorphosed into a scandalous reference and got away with it.

He further said that the audio CD provided to him comprising three telephonic conversations of Ansar abbasi, i.e. with the Chief Justice of the Lahore High Court and one with his wife is shocking to say the least.

“I am afraid that this journalist has the cheek to violate the privacy of the Chief Justice of LHC as also of his home”, Justice Bilal said, adding that this indeed is a flagrant violation of his basic and fundamental rights as enshrined in the Constitution and also against all canons of journalistic ethics and decency. “I cannot adequately condemn this atrocious act”, he said.

He said the audio CD has been sent to the Supreme Judicial Council under orders of the Chief Justice it is therefore for his lordship now to take cognisance of this violation for appropriate action.

He further said that allegations against him are totally false and intended to damage his personal reputation and standing as a Judge. “Speaking for myself, if these allegations had an air of truth, I would loath to hang on the office that I hold”, Justice Bilal concluded.

It is pertinent to mention here that Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry took notice on two stories, which appeared in The News on February 10 and 11, wherein it was revealed that a sitting senior judge of the Lahore High Court (LHC) had links with the underworld.

It was revealed that the LHC chief justice has been formally informed by the Punjab police of extremely serious allegations made in his recorded statement against the judge by a notorious wanted don, Faiz Rasool alias Nanno Goraya, who was killed in a police encounter on Jan 17, 2009.

His death was celebrated by the people of Gujranwala, who showered flowers on the police for eliminating a hardened criminal.

According to the news report Goraya carried head money of Rs2 million and was arrested a few days ago when the Shahbaz Sharif government sent special police teams to the Gulf and later to Malaysia to nab him in collaboration with Interpol. He was arrested in Malaysia and brought back to Pakistan and then recorded his statements in which he implicated the LHC judge.

Later, when the don tried to escape from police custody an encounter ensued and he was shot dead, the report revealed. The report mentioned how the sitting judge of the LHC offered Goraya to quash all his cases in one go. But Goraya, who claimed he did not remember how many persons he had murdered, replied that he had to kill many more and would approach the judge only when he had killed all of them.

Gujranwala Regional Police Officer Zulfikar Cheema when contacted confirmed to this correspondent that Nanno Goraya’s statement regarding the sitting LHC judge was sent to the chief justice. Lahore High Court Chief Justice Sayed Zahid Hussain had described as ‘extremely serious’ the police report about a senior sitting LHC judge’s links with Nanno Goraya.
