    Honarable Bhagwandas, Sadar Salam.

    Know that those who love Pakistan, honor you.

    Know that you are recognized for your dedication to justice and equity.

    Know that there was the time not too long ago, when there was a price. In the balance was your dedication to your honored profession as well as the love of your land.

    Know that you refused the price and earned the honor.

    Know that it was your skilled patience, your sense of morality and your decency that guided your soul and your mind at that hour.

    Know that when the history of march to justice and equity will be written, your name will rank above the many who settled for a price, sold their soul, their nation.

    Know that we have miles to go for justice and equity before we sleep.

    Know that we are grateful. Appreciative.

    The honored son of Pakistan, Bhagwandas, Sadar Salam.

    UPDATE
    From the Dawn today:

    The Supreme Court on Friday ruled that the Constitution did not bar a non-Muslim judge from becoming the country’s chief justice. The ruling was made after a petition filed by Shahid Orakzai, challenging the appointment of Justice Rana Bhagwandas as acting Chief Justice of Pakistan for being a non-Muslim, was rejected.

    A three-member bench, comprising Justice Sardar Muhammad Raza Khan, Justice Mohammad Nawaz Abbasi and Justice Chaudhry Ijaz Ahmad, also dismissed a petition filed by Moulvi Iqbal Haider who defended the appointment of a non-Muslim as chief justice or acting chief justice. The court termed the petition infructuous.

    Deputy Attorney-General Tariq Khokhar said that there was no constitutional provision that barred a non-Muslim judge from being elevated to the post of the CJ.

    During the hearing, the bench called the police to send Shahid Orakzai out of the court when he insisted to address the court and speak in favour of his petition.
