JUDGES FROM MIANWALI

THE JUDICIAL SYSTEM OF MIANWALI

 THE ROOTS OF THE CURRENT JUDICIAL SYSTEM OF MIANWALI STRETCH BACK TO THE PERIOD WHEN MIANWALI  WAS TEHSIL OF BANNU   AND EVEN BEFORE. THE JUDICIAL SYSTEM THAT IS BEING  PRACTICED TODAY HAS EVOLVED OVER A LONG PERIOD OF TIME, SPANNING ROUGHLY OVER A WHOLE MILLENNIUM. THE SYSTEM HAS PASSED THROUGH SEVERAL EPOCHS COVERING THE HINDU ERA, MUSLIM PERIOD INCLUDING THE MUGHAL DYNASTY, BRITISH COLONIAL PERIOD AND POST-INDEPENDENCE PERIOD. NOT   WITH STANDING THE SUCCESSIVE CHANGES I.E. ONE RULE /DYNASTY SUBSTITUTED BY THE OTHER , WHICH NATURALLY RESULTED IN THE SOCIOECONOMIC AND POLITICAL TRANSFORMATION OF THE INDIAN SOCIETY, THE JUDICIAL SYSTEM GENERALLY MAINTAINED A STEADY GROWTH AND GRADUAL ADVANCE TOWARDS CONSOLIDATION AND IMPROVEMENT/REFINEMENT, WITHOUT INDEED, HAVING TO UNDERGO ANY MAJOR DISRUPTION OR SUBSTANTIAL CHANGE. ALL IN ALL, THE SYSTEM EXPERIENCED AND PASSED THROUGH 3 DISTINCT STAGES OF HISTORICAL DEVELOPMENT, NAMELY, HINDU KINGDOM, MUSLIM-RULE AND BRITISH COLONIAL DOMINATION. THE 4TH AND CURRENT ERA, COMMENCED WITH THE PARTITION OF INDIA AND THE ESTABLISHMENT OF PAKISTAN AS A SOVEREIGN AND INDEPENDENT STATE. THE SYSTEM, THUS, HAS EVOLVED THROUGH A PROCESS OF REFORM AND DEVELOPMENT. THIS CONCLUSION ENJOYS NEAR UNANIMITY AMONG HISTORIANS AND COMMENTATORS OF INDIAN LEGAL HISTORY.

THE DISTRICT JUDGE USED TO BE IN CHARGE OF CIVIL JUDICIAL WORK, AND BOTH OFFICERS ARE UNDER THE SUPERVISION OF THE DIVISIONAL AND SESSIONS JUDGE OF THE SHAHPUR CIVIL DIVISION.
