The Answer To Terrorism Is CJ Iftikhar Chaudhry's Politico-Judicial Approach
If Zardari’s fake conciliation policy along with Farooq Naik’s and Rehman Malik’s tactics continue to run Pakistan, probably suicide attacks like Islamabad will continue in coming months and years. With this kind of arrangements, Pakistan will never be able to cure from its ills.
Let us explain why?
First, we all know perceptions are important. The general perception in Pakistan is February 18 elections have changed nothing in the country. People feel PPP government is nothing but continuity of Musharraf regime which is being guided and controlled from Washington. Empty statements by Prime Minister Gilani and other PPP ministers denying American dictation or influence are proving futile to change the perception.
Why the perceptions are not changing?
Before elections, the major movement that stirred Pakistan was about restoration of judiciary. Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry was, and still is, the symbol of restoration of judiciary. Zardari, Farooq Naik and Rehman Malik have tried to play smart with the nation.
In the name of conciliation, they have left Musharraf system in the country intact. Musharraf committed serious crimes against the constitution, the state and the people of Pakistan. He has escaped unscathed. Zardari, Farooq Naik, Rehman Malik, Abdul Hammed Dogar are not interested in trying Musharraf for his crimes.
Zardari, Farooq Naik, Rehman Malik are trying to play smart with the people by restoring judges without restoring Judiciary to the position of November 2, 2007.
Can anyone play smart with the people in current situation?
Anyone who will try to play smart with the people will do it on the cost of growing Taliban influence, suicide bombings, terrorist attacks, greater bloodshed and lawlessness.
People of Pakistan want a significant change in Pakistan. They want to see social, cultural, political and economic justice in the country. The approach to bring this justice is Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry’s approach.
Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry is not a politician. We wish he was. He could cash on his movement to become the ruler of Pakistan, but he remained a true judge in his actions and tactics.
Attack like Islamabad is a horrific thing. Such attacks cripple nations, destroy their psyches and eventually push countries on the path to complete destruction and annihilation.
If anyone thinks he can control such horrific attacks without changing general Musharraf’s policies, he is living in fools’ paradise.
Pakistan has reached to the ‘Make or Break’ point. It can become a vibrant country by adopting Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry’s politico-judicial approach or face ultimate demise because of Zardari, Farooq Naik and Rehman Malik’s policies based on fake and deceptive conciliation which means nothing but protecting high profile criminals.
