"It is part of the code of conduct that a (judicial) matter can not be discussed until the court takes the final decision; however, news channels have been crossing the limit by broadcasting talk shows on such cases", said Chudhry Khadim Huddain, editor of a national daily. The three-member bench ordered Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz to appear in person or via their counsel before the court during the next hearing.

"It can't be that anyone out there goes about denouncing judicial matters and decisions in the name of fair criticism", he remarked, adding that it would make sense for an expert or lawyer to dwell on judicial matters but not everyone can be allowed to do so. He pointed out that Article 68 even prevented Parliament from criticising the judiciary and its decisions.

Commenting on a NAB references against him over construction of Raiwind Road, he said references should also be filed against him for building motorway and carrying out nuclear tests.

He said however said Pemra had rejected an application against alleged anti-judiciary speeches on "technical grounds" using its authority. "The judiciary will also monitor content on channels to ensure no violations occur", the court ruled. Safdar was present in the court for the hearing.
