We know what the lawyers’ movement is for. We know that why deposed chief justice of Pakistan Iftikhar Mohammad Chaudhary said No to the iron-fist dictator General Pervez Musharraf and we know as why lawyers all across the country from Karachi to Khyber struggled so much so that they sacrificed their everything.
The lawyers movement is for the justice and the constitution for the people of this country. This is our war, the real war. It is for a noble cause with which few people in post-Feb 18 Pakistan will disagree: the restoration of the deposed judges, starting from My Lord Iftikhar Chaudhry and encompassing all the other judges who, showing courage and integrity, refused to take oath under President Musharraf’s Provisional Constitutional Order (Nov 3, 2007).
Now once again the lawyers are being re-aligning their movement. This time there is no turning back and not even the shenanigans of the Pakistan People’s Party can stop them. Lawyers will prevail and justice will come back.
