What is article 190 of the constitution of Pakistan?

Under Article 190, all executive and judicial authorities in Pakistan are bound to act in aid of the Supreme Court. The Constitution says that these authorities "shall act" in aid of the SC, thus leaving no other option but to get the apex court's orders implemented.
This leaves no room for disobeyance of any orders of Supreme Court by any authority and any disobeyance is unconstitutional.
