Azad Kashmir Prime Minister Disqualified in Contempt of Court Case

Azad Jammu and Kashmir’s Prime Minister, Sardar Tanvir Ilyas, has been disqualified from holding public office for two years by the Azad Jammu and Kashmir Supreme Court. The verdict was announced in a contempt of court case.

The case was filed against Sardar Tanvir Ilyas after he made derogatory remarks against the judiciary during a public gathering in November 2021. The court found that his comments aimed to undermine the independence and authority of the judiciary, which violates the Constitution.

The verdict has shocked the ruling party, as Sardar Tanvir Ilyas is considered a senior member and a popular leader of the party. The ruling party has condemned the verdict, calling it a political move aimed at disqualifying a popular leader.

However, the opposition parties have welcomed the verdict, which powerfully conveys that no one is above the law and the judiciary’s authority must be respected.

This decision is a significant development in the country’s political landscape, particularly in Azad Jammu and Kashmir. It sends a clear message that criticism of the judiciary will not be tolerated and that all must respect the Constitution and the rule of law.

The disqualification of Sardar Tanvir Ilyas will lead to a new election in Azad Jammu and Kashmir, which is expected to be closely contested.
