Justice (retired) Fakhruddin G. Ebrahim, a respected jurist also known to have close relationship with Nawaz Sharif and PML-N, has very different opinion of CJ Iftikhar Chaudhrys’ ruling while PML-N and PTI are trying to ride on the back of judiciary. In a recent talkshow, Justice Ibrahim openly criticized judiciary. However after he left the show, the ultimate legal expert Dr. Shahid Masood criticized him with some lame and frivolous examples.
Our media is acting like Toilet Paper of judiciary. Everybody criticized Justice Iftikhar Mental (as commonly known on Pakistani Twitter) except Pakistani media. All international media and especially Indian SC judge has openly criticized this Clint Eastwood style of Justice (Clint Eastwood had no PCO oath and definitely no son like Arsalan). Since the judicial coup, not even a single international outlet has praised the decision but rather labelled it as “REVENGE DECISION”. This so called judiciary is bent on taking PPP government down but instead they are making heroes out of fallen leaders.
Mr. Iftikhar Mental, no matter what you do, you can never legally become President or the Prime Minister of Pakistan. Your wish can only be served by illegal means. It is matter of discussion, what you want to name it Bangladesh model, revolution, judicial restraint, national interest, but between you and the whole world, it will still be ILLEGAL.
Media pundits who have continuously spread right wing pro Taliban/Al-Qaeeda agenda are now the Legal experts too. Our supreme court is in hyper drive with Dual core Pentium 10 processor to derail democracy or at least weaken it. First I was of the opinion that instead of having all this democratic set up and continuous military interruptions, why not make COAS to be president of the country but now I think why not make CJ the president of the country and let him run this bloody show. Forget Bangladesh model, make a new Pakistani model.
After 62 years of independence we are still searching for damn models. We had military governments, we had imported PM’s governments, we had technocrat governments, we had lota governments, we had Ameer ul Momineens and why the not this new thing. We love experimentation what the heck, have this Judge be the president, CJ, PM and do what ever he wants to do with this unfortunate country self proclaimed Fort of Islam, leader of Ummah country. Mr. CJ go a head and make Mullah Omar the president of country if it serves you better.
As the time goes by I fail to see any light left for democracy in this hell bound country. First this weak political government couldn’t provide par excellence governance but rather a bad performance, then on top of it we have this PCO loving judiciary backed by media and right wing political parties harking to shut down this democracy-wemocracy bullshit.
This social fibre of this country was destroyed by uneducated bearded mullah with its out of the world interpretation of religion and now we have this bloody new kind of BUFOONS Ansar Abbasi, Shahid Masood, Hamid Mir, Mehr Bokhari and Kashif Abbasi who are interpreting constitution for us. God help us.
