Now after 9 years when the court has finally acquitted Atiqa Odho she has shared her words with her followers through Instagram. Atiqa shared a snippet from “Aj Shahzaib Khanzada Kay Sath” and wrote: “9 years waited for Justice and finally got it. Never lost hope on our Judicial system and a brave magistrate finally did the honorable thing and accepted my acquittal appeal. It’s been a long and painful journey but if it helps the citizens of Pakistan get quicker justice after this, it’s all worth it. As for the former CJP Iftikhar Chaudry, I feel so sorry for him. He lost a golden opportunity to serve our nation and instead played petty politics and ruined his own name and embarrassed our honorable judiciary. The people have spoken so I don’t need to say more. Pakistan Zindabad !”
