Burney said, "Now, I am going to file a fresh mercy petition before the President of Pakistan on June 25, and from my side I am confident that I will not allow Pakistan government to hang an innocent person only on the basis that he is Non-Muslim or Indian national."
"How a court, if there is any justice in that court, can punish a person to hang without providing him any lawyer and in a case where the prisoner already spent 18 long years in a death cell that is more than a life sentence?" Burney questioned.
Burney also said that the apex court treated Sarabjit Singh not as prisoner but as non-Muslim (kafir) and Indian national, and that 'is a murder of justice'.
Sarabjit Singh, 43-year-old was convicted for his alleged involvement in four bomb blasts which took place in 1990, but Sarabjit's family insists that he was wrongly convicted.
