KARACHI: Former Pakistan all-rounder and T20 skipper Shahid Afridi on Wednesday congratulated Chief Justice Saqib Nisar for doing a commendable job by taking a stand on issues of public welfare.

However, he suggested to look within his own institution of judiciary headed by the top judge.

“Want to congratulate Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar for commendable and remarkable job. His surprise visits have been of great service to nation however I would like to suggest that if he can also take out time to visit lower courts so that he can fix the black sheep within as well,” he tweeted.

The chief justice is conducting surprise visits of hospitals and taking notices of human rights issues, poor education and healthcare services.

Though criticised for overstepping his constitutional boundaries, the chief justice has reiterated that such criticism would not deter him from excercising his power for welfare of people.
