Lawyers have dispersed the morals of law and order when they attacked Punjab Institute of Cardiology. They did so keeping the domestic and international laws at the tip of the shoe; the so-called protectors of law might have forgotten the law.
According to the Geneva Convention, the civilized world has agreed not to target hospitals and patients in the war. Article 14 of the Geneva Convention expressly states that hospitals will not be targeted in the event of war. It is agreed not to target patients and wounded in combat; according to international law, the younger and the elderly people need to be protected against the effects of combat. Article 16 of the Geneva Convention also speaks of special honors for the wounded, patients and pregnant women and to ensure their safety.
The people of Pakistan are asking how are these lawmakers who are practicing law, morality, and civilization under their feet? In Lahore, lawyers attacked the city’s largest heart hospital; lawyers set up their court in the hospital; blacksmiths did not put their hands on their hearts or saw the condition of the patients, who broke everything. The lawyers broke the door of Punjab Institute of Cardiology, broke the emergency ward’s glasses, seized the ICU, tortured doctors, para-medical staff, even parked vehicles in the hospital premises, Not only the hospital, but Jail Road was also made a battlefield by lawyers.
Unfortunately the lawyers forgot all of the learnt lessons of morality and did not even leave patients and common men who had to bear the brunt of war between doctors and lawyers. Four patients are officially dead; their attack cost huge financial loss to national exchequer, of at least Rs70 million. Considering all such facts, we can justifiably say that lawyers broke law like a criminal and now their legal fraternity is portraying them as savior of law. How sad!
The police came to the hospital about an hour after the attack, shelling tear gas at the hospital to disperse the lawyer. Lawyers also attacked law enforcement agencies, opened fire on the police van, as per details. It was a worst example of attacks on humanity. The patients and their kith and kin hid in the hospital washrooms to save their lives. Patients in the ward remained terrified throughout the incident, but the lawyers neither poured the heart nor had any mercy on the patients.
Even cars could not survive the wrath of the black coat? Lawyers also tortured journalists, hospital staff, doctors, wards, building, and unfortunately the crowd. Patients and their relatives continued to see the [in]justice of the black coat. The lawyers, who came to conquer the hospital, also turned Jail Road into the battlefield. The outbreak in the hospital also angered passersby. When Information Minister Punjab Fayyaz-ul-Hassan Chauhan arrived at the PIC, the lawyers also surrounded him, drew his hair and even dragged him.
This all started with a video that when viral on social media two days ago, in which lawyers were ridiculed by doctors. To take revenge, the lawyers attacked PIC in Lahore and vandalized everything there.
Keeping all ins and outs into consideration, it is a matter of fact that the lawyers dispersed the morals of law and orders. These morals are taught to them in educational institutions for half a decade. Unfortunately they forgot all of them and did not even leave patients and common men who had to bear the brunt of war between doctors and lawyers. Four patients are officially dead; their attack cost huge financial loss to national exchequer, of at least Rs70 million. Considering all such facts, we can justifiably say that lawyers broke law like a criminal and now their legal fraternity is portraying them as savior of law. How sad!
