NRO Detailed Judgment - Fiction Speech Quoted by Mr. Justice Ch. Ijaz

I've sent this letter to Chief Justice of Pakistan, as expected no response received

For years I am preaching we as a Nation are master of making fictions, a Fact. The most recent incident that makes me write these line are NRO Judgment dated 19-01-2010 page No. 2576 & 257 written by Justice CH. IJAZ AHMED, which read as.

Macaulay had made speech at the floor of the British Parliament on 2nd February, 1835 which is to the following effect:-

“I have traveled across the length and breadth of India and I have not seen one person who is a beggar, who is a thief. Such wealth I have seen in this country, such high moral values, people of such caliber, that I do not think we would ever conquer this country, unless we break the very backbone of this nation, which is her spiritual and cultural heritage, and, therefore, I propose that we replace her old and ancient education system, her culture, for if the Indians think that all that is foreign and English is good and greater than their own, they will lose their self-esteem, their native self-culture and they will become what we want them, a truly dominated nation”.

the above phrases never said by Lord Macaulay at the floor of the British Parliament on 2nd February, 1835 rather he harshly criticize the education system in Sanskrit and Arabic and suggested that English be the language of Indian.
I have also send my observations to Honorable Justice of Pakistan on 22-January-2010, with relevant speech of Lord Macaulay but no response received so far.

The aim of me writing this letter is to show my concern that as a Nation we happily spread word of mouth without confirming / investigating the source. I am so much disappointed that our Honorable Judge used phrases of a fiction speech in the one of the most terrific judgment of present time.
