Sardar Ali Swati
MATTA (SWAT): Senior Advocate Saeed Ahmad Khan has said that the fundamental rights of every citizen had been safeguarded by the Constitution of Pakistan and no one could deny it, while the police had no authority to beat any innocent citizen and if anyone faced any such situation, he/she should contact the police department or the courts to seek justice.
While talking to Sunrise Today here on Sunday, Saeed Ahmad Khan Advocate stated that actually the common folk did not know about the law and their basic rights that’s why they faced torture and harassment in different cases at police stations, or at public places, however, if we would educate them about law and human rights, there would be no issue at all on the part of public.
He said that there was a dire need for guiding the public on the need and importance of understanding law and fundamental rights to safeguard ourselves from violence and torture of police, adding that the police must differentiate between the criminals and innocent citizens as the police department was the hope and safeguard of the public.
The senior lawyer further stated that current era was very challenging and the new comers should join the judiciary, if they had a will to do something special for humanity, adding that he had always supported the young lawyers in their establishment and development phase.
