The 540-page judgement begins with the quote that is originally attributed to 19th-century French writer Honore de Balzac.
The use of the 'Godfather' quote itself is grabbing eyeballs particularly as it has been made in the context of the Panama papers scandal in which Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his family has been accused of money laundering and corruption.
The Supreme Court bench in its April 20 verdict had also raised questions regarding the money trail related to the Sharif family's Gulf steel mill.
The 'Godfather' reference seem to be haunting Mr Sharif with the opposition especially cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan, who is the chairman of Pakistan Tahreek-i-Insaf, using this analogy to drive home the "corruption and mafia" allegations against the 67-year-old premier.
"The reference of Godfather in the Panama judgement is disturbing. We seek guidance from Quran and not Godfather," Punjab Province Law Minister Rana Sanaullah said, adding that, "this analogy hurts us".
He said the Sharif family was considering filing a review against such remarks by the court.
"We are considering filing a review in the Supreme Court for expunging of certain remarks (including that of Godfather reference) in the Panama judgement. However, a final decision in this regard will be taken later," Advocate Salman Akram Raja, a counsel for the Sharif family in the Panama Papers case, told PTI.
Those in the legal team of the Sharifs opposing the option of challenging the 'Godfather' and other adverse remarks were of the view that the Sharif family may not get relief because challenging certain remarks was like opening another Panama case.
"In case we challenge these remarks, any further adverse remarks by the judges may not only make headlines but also provide another opportunity to the opposition to target the
Sharif family," a PML-N lawyer said.
Former federal law minister Khalid Ranjah said the Sharif family might not file a review considering various complications.
"The whole judgement is full of adverse remarks about Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif. He may not get any relief from the court in this regard," Mr Ranjah said
This is the first time that Pakistan's Supreme Court has made such remarks about the sitting Prime Minister of the country, he said.
