The government issued on Tuesday notifications about restoration of all deposed judges, including Chief Justice of Pakistan Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry. This notification ends one speculation but still there are some loose ends, the biggest of all is the status of PCO judges.
All the democratic political forces of the country need to learn to demonstrate flexibility on national issues, especially the Pakistan People’s Party. Lawyers, civil society and the opposition parties like PML(N), JI, TIP and have done a great job, now its upon the shoulders of the PPP to repair the damage.
They shouldn’t be supporting the Justice Abdul Hameed Dogar, and they must not be protecting the illegal Dogar. Also they must not stop Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhary from doing his job, because it is also incumbent upon the state to not interfere into affairs of justice.
There are many issues like 12th May massacre by MQM, NRO, and host of others, which must not be forgotten by the justice.
As the political crisis deepened in Pakistan in the last few days and literally started threatening the survival of the democratic set-up, it was the steadfast principled stance of PML(N) leadership which not only provided the street power but also the massive support by action.
Kudos to them.
