Well, Pakistan’s Judiciary is the prime
example. They have proven to be handmaidens for various Bonapartist
Generals, their stooges (first Nawaz and now Imran), for Takfiri Jihadis
and for all sorts of vested interests.
One has to look long and
hard before finding any decision that can be held up with honour and
that conveys any decency or integrity.
A defining moment for
this judiciary was the much hyped but deeply compromised and ISI-driven
“lawyer’s movement”. From that point onwards, Pakistan’s judiciary went
from being compromised to degenerate.
The lawyer’s movement,
supported by life time thugs and crooks like ISI generals Hamid Gul and
career backstabbing bureaucrat, Roedad Khan, was actually a project to
derail the Transition to Democracy. DC and Riyadh backed this movement
of boutique leftists and Sipah e Sahaba. The international establishment
did not want their former protege (Musharaf) to be replaced by a
potentially strong and stable PPP government under Benazir.
know the tragic consequences of this pathetic movement and its
nauseating self righteous ness. We saw how a PPP prime minister was
convicted and dismissed for NOT writing a letter and FOR protecting
We saw how how differently a Saudi
stooge like Nawaz Sharif was gently removed via a weak decision that
could easily be overruled if he decided to play along – as he did for
most of 1981-2017.
If history is any indication, the same Nawaz
Sharif or Maryam Nawaz will likely be provided another chance by this
The current flavour is of course the PTI. And
the current target of the judiciary is against the disenfranchised stall
owners of Sindh. Of course this judiciary lacks the guts or the moral
spine to take on elite and vested interests which is why elite
encroachments of the Musharaf era remain largely untouched. So do the
scores of Takfiri (Deobandi) mosques constructed on illegally occupied
public parks. So do the residences of retired judges that have
encroached entire lanes of public thoroughfares.
what security these judges require? It’s not as though they are known
for taking a tough decision. Justice Baqar is one of the last decent
In no other country on the planet does a judiciary
conduct itself as a Jamaatiya political party which selectively acts
against poor stall owners and scuttles the PPP Sindh government’s
initiatives on education and commerce. In no other country does a
judiciary act as a fund raising body for projects designed in the 1960s.
Have they ever heard of the more financially and environmentally effective water reservoirs??
Obviously not. Intellectual curiosity is not the hallmark of these
Jamaatiya judges. Unfortunately, this psyche of smug self righteousness
is embedded deep in the Pakistan urban bourgeoisie.
actors posing as political commentators gave us their stupid and ill
informed views of the 1960s Ayubian dictatorship. This one clip in
particular where the typically constipated host has an orgasm about the
Ayub dictatorship is particularly sickening.
Please share in the
comments section as I am unable to locate the clip. But this clip
deserves a thorough comeuppance for the sheer magnitude of its stupidity
combined with the host’s dishonesty.
