Expressing his antagonism over strikes in courts he said, strike calls in courts is tantamount of act against accountability, “Despite strike calls, lawyers in Quetta appeared in courts because we should wait for Supreme Judicial Council’s judgement.”

He added, lawyers’ community always rendered sacrifices for country’s law and order situation therefore we shouldn’t observe strikes on reference’s hearing day.
