CJ regrets on his remarks perceived as gender sensitive.

ISLAMABAD -- Chief Justice Wednesday in open court observed that if the remarks in his speech at Karachi hurt the feelings of women in general then he deeply regretted.

Recently in a speech at Karachi the Chief Justice of Pakistan made some remarks which were perceived as gender sensitive by certain sections of the society.

He observed that the Supreme Court is conscious of its duties and will uphold the rights of women

as well as alleviate their grievances.

Chief Justice said that he had only quoted Winston Churchill which was inappropriate on the

occasion and he stands corrected.

It may added that during the speech made on January 13, 2018 in Karachi, the CJP had quoted former British prime minister Winston Churchill: 'A good speech should be like a woman's skirt; long enough to cover the subject and short enough to create interest.'
