The Life of Jinnah

 

Long Live CJ and Attorneys of Pakistan

 We want to show solidarity with the Chief Justice of Pakistan Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry and the attorneys of Pakistan who are trying to steer lawless Pakistan towards a law-abiding country.

 

Particularly, at the juncture when Pakistan is fighting the battle of its survival against multi faceted fascist forces in the shape of Taliban or so called intellectuals or politicians who want to maintain the status quo in Pakistan in which dictatorship can continue breathing until it gets a chance to come back.

 

Chief Justice of Pakistan Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry and leaders of lawyers' movement are beacons of light for Pakistanis.

 

It is true the people of Pakistan are living through the toughest economic times. It is also true they never faced such scarcity and price hike of day-to-day commodities of daily use in the history of Pakistan. However, they also know all their problems stem from a subservient justice system, which authenticates every illegal act of corrupt ruling elite. In order to change this system they are firmly standing behind the Chief Justice and the leaders of lawyers' movement for restoration of dysfunctional justice.

 

People of Pakistan exactly know who is playing what role in desisting the efforts of restoration of dysfunctional judges.  They know how PPP, led by Mr. Zardari, has delayed the restoration of judiciary. They also know how hypocritically and cowardly PML (Q) leadership acted in the presence of general Musharraf and how deceptively now it is talking about restoration of judges after his ouster from office.  People of Pakistan also noticed the fork tongued statements of Altaf Hussain of MQM who opposed the restoration of judges by polluting this issue by confusing present PCO judges with previous PCO but present activist judges.

 

With this scenario in mind, we want to assure Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry and the leaders of the lawyers' movement that their way is the only way to make Pakistan a real, equitable and functional state where constitution, rule of law and democracy will always have upper hand and all other forces will be subject to and subservient to them.

 

We know no matter how much effort all these licit and illicit enemies and opponents of restoration of judiciary try to halt the restoration process of deposed judges the judges will be restored. 

 

Therefore, the only sensible thing to do is to continue the movement of restoration of judiciary to the position of November 2, 2007 and afterwards the movement to reform Pakistan through judicial activism.

Long live CJ and lawyers of Pakistan.
