He is also considered an authority on the Pakistan independence movement.

Examples of cases where he represented civil society in obtaining favorable decisions from the courts include Mawlvi Tamizuddin''s case, Margalla Towers'' case, asma Jilani''s case and al-Jihad Trust''s [AKA Judges] case. Various leaders of Pakistan (Zia-ul-Haq, Ghulam Ishaq Khan, Benazir Bhutto, Nawaz Sharif, Pervez Musharraf) have also turned to him when confronted with serious legal challenges to get the courts to rule in their favor.

How much you still want to earn. Better to stay at home \\\"aur Allah Allah Karo Sir\\\". I think you have passed the age of taking right decisions.

His picture should be posted in every unary place in Pakistan. At least as Pakistani everyone should spit on him every day on his picture so, it will be an example for others like him.
