I rue why I was born in Iqbalabad. Why my parents chose to take their city’s name as the family name. couldn’t they have selected names like Khosa, Qureshi, Ramday or even a Kiyani, I wonder! Our Supreme Court which is out with all its daggers and swords is leading a very potent front against the political and democratically elected government in the country. They love to give judgments or give preference to petitions that give the galleries enough chance to satiate their thirst for the government’s blood. On top of that, they love a few gentlemen who are used over and over again to hit the government. These include foot in the mouth award winner – Justice Khalil ur Rehman Ramday; Capt. Zafar Qureshi – the famous and “honest” officer who unearthed many a scams while at FIA and Tariq Khosa who is being trumpeted as a very competent individual and was named many a times by the Supreme Court to lead various investigations like the Swiss Cases.
Tariq Khosa with Rahman Malik in 2009
Mr. Khosa has been appointed to head a “One man commission” to investigate the “Memogate” scandal and will be free to conduct the inquiry on his own or to associate any expert to collect forensic evidence. Mr. Khosa is a brother of sitting Supreme Court Judge – Justice Asif Saeed Khosa (he is also the son-in-law of Justice Naseem Hassan Shah) and Punjab Chief Secretary Nasir Khosa. These are very important points to realize how independent and unbiased Mr. Khosa would be in conducting a fair inquiry. PPP has all the right to claim prejudice. Literally the prayer of Nawaz Sharif has been accepted. Those people have been appointed who have been used as a tool to pressurize the government and then somewhere the CJ has also said that the use of “Military Courts cannot be ruled out”.
Asma Jahangir, who has accepted to represent Husain Haqqani for a token fee of Rs. 4,000 in the case has said “Hum nay Adlia kee bahali kay liye larai iss liye nahee laree thee kay military courts mayn ja kar pesh hon. Agar yehi karna tha to aaj mayn bhee koi bara say uhda hasil kar saktee thee.”
