Shameful is a dignified word, shamelessly said, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan, in his reply to the Contempt of Court Case.
Refering to Imran Khan's statement in which he used the word "Shameful" for the Supreme Court of Paksitan and the Judiciary, Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry asked "Can such words be used for the judiciary?"
Chief Justice added that since Imran is a leader and public figure, such words and statements are not expected from him.
However, Imran Khan had different thoughts and he stubornly stood by his words.
The Court deemed Imran Khan's reply as inadequate. The words allegedly used for the Judiciary can be punishable by law according to the Court’s decision at the end of the hearing.
Earlier, Imran Khan said "I have not done or said anything that is punishable by law, my statements were made in the interest of democracy in Pakistan".
Imran Khan had vowed on that he would "Stand by his Stance", even if it meant he is sentenced and disqualified from being elected into the assemblies, and said "If this is contempt, then I do not think they know the meaning of contempt."
