A Step Forward To Constitutional, Parliamentary and Judicial Freedom

 

Today history has taken a new turn in Pakistan. A struggle the people of Pakistan started decades ago, which was boosted by CJ Iftikhar Mohammad Chaudhry on March 9, 2007, which was advanced by former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto and Nawaz Sharif through  marathon of mutual interactive steps, which was eventually furthered by Benazir Bhutto’s blood on December 27, and which was nurtured by hundreds of thousands of attorneys in the streets and courts of Pakistan, has eventually taken a step forward to constitutional, parliamentary and judicial freedom.

 

Today, a sovereign parliament has embarked with confidence, zeal and courage on a journey full of dangers and perils.

 

Newly elected Prime Minister enforced parliament’s supremacy by ordering the release of illegally detained Supreme Court judges including Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry and his family.

 

Within minutes after newly elected Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani ordered the release of illegally detained judges, thousands of attorneys and civil society members and media crew reached Judges Colony to witness the illuminating moments of Pakistani history.

 

The audience witnessed heavy machines moving barbed wires away from Judges Colony; they saw the youngest innocent prisoner in Pakistani history, Balach Chaudhry, youngest son of Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry, standing in the balcony waving hands to the enthusiastic and gallant crowd.  

 

While Balach Chaudhry was waving hands to the crowd gathered in Judges Colony, people sitting in parliament gallery chanted Zinda Hay Be Be Zinda Hay; many audiences were wiping tears in their eyes. Bilawal Bhutto and Asif Zardari were also crying with the audience, and across the globe hundred of thousands were  crying watching these scenes at their TV screens.

 

Within last 8 ½ years, general Musharraf has inflicted  serious wounds to the soul and body of Pakistani nation. He has made hundreds of thousands of people shed tears of blood through his barbaric and cruel acts. He has destroyed Pakistani nation’s psyche as a nation and people. He undermined constitution, rule of law, judiciary, army, bureaucracy and civil society. He humiliated everything sacred in Pakistan. Nothing could escape general Musharraf’s torturous and secretive hands. Many  so called pious ones lost their faiths, convictions, principles and loyalties on the hands of blood thirsty general Musharraf. Only those who sold their souls to him lived in peace and tranquility.

 

Today, Pakistani history has started moving in a different direction--a direction which will eventually lead Pakistani nation to the country of their dreams where constitution, rule of law and democracy will govern as supreme values.

 

Before this happens, there are still some neutralized viruses tightly holding their positions. Those viruses can replicate themselves fairly quickly if not removed from their positions.  

 

13th parliament must deal with these neutralized viruses as soon as possible. Like hard realities of life, they are not going to wither away on  their own. Parliament will have to facilitate their elimination.

 

We congratulate people of Pakistan for their great success.
