A group of more than 100 academics, civil society representatives and citizens have written an open letter to Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Umar Ata Bandial “to put forth our grave concerns over the prevailing political and constitutional crisis”, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

The letter said “We have noted with enormous distress the aggressive and contemptuous manner in which the constitution of Pakistan was violated by the outgoing government.”

It further said “This action has brought us to the ignominious juncture where the ‘doctrine of necessity’ is again being invoked by some to suspend due process and violate the fundamental right to vote on the basis of unsubstantiated claims of alleged foreign interference in the political process.”

The letter said the “honour and well-being of our future generations lie on in adherence to the constitution.” 

“Today, we pin all our hopes on your lordship to uphold the constitution and stand by the people of Pakistan in this hour of need,” it said.
