The Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP), Mian Saqib Nisar, bashed at those criticizing the campaign for collecting donations to construct dams. ‘Those claiming that asking for donations, for the construction of Diamer Bhasha and Mohmand Dam, is ‘begging’ should be ashamed of themselves’, the CJP remarked on Tuesday. The CJP was apparently irked by undue floods of criticism on social media and mainstream print media, where many people have termed the campaign a new method of begging. The CJP categorially stated that “narrow-minded people have such thinking.”
