Nawaz Sharif said the struggle for restoration of the constitution has been continued since 1999 and Peoples Party had also vowed for cancellation of LFO and establishment of free judiciary. He said due to personal agenda of Zardari the national agenda is not being implemented.

Nawaz also criticized the mobile courts ordinance and claimed that the law has nothing to do with the justice but it has been promulgated to stop the long march. Earlier, Nawaz Sharif reached Jamat headquarters at Mansoora at the head of five-member party delegation on invitation of JI chief Qazi Hussain Ahmed.

  • while the reconciliatory efforts of Qazi and Asfandyar are commendable, let me remind the readers again that it’s very convenient to portray one’s self as the messiah and savior, to forget one’s own dirty laundry etched in history only a clicks away, all the money hoarded under the “karz utaro mulk sanwaro scheme” that the Sharifs introduced. Which is exactly why we need to move forward with only selective parts of history that cannot be ignored for devising a way forward. if this continues, we’ll not only invite anarchy to our state’s crippling, remaining institutes but setting a precendent for positions for lawyers in each party.. “Judge X for PML Q, Judge Y for PPP…etc.” we all know it’s a flawed democratic process, but for the love of god! let it run its course so we can finally have a somewhat stabilized country!! :'(

  • In charter of democracy it was agreed between Shaheed Benazir Bhutto and Nawaz Sharif to bring back Justice Iftikhar Ch. and get rid of 17th dictatorship amendment.
    But Asif Zardari just has become even worse dictator keeping all power to himself rather than to parliament.
    And the problem is our Army Generals who mess up when they are conquer PAKISTAN (only Generals of Army) and then leave bone of contention for politician to fight on till another General is ready to Conquer Pakistan again.

    Musharaf have installed Zardari with full understanding or current Generals. Although Current Generals showing neutral but they are as bad as Musharaf being accepting this situation and enjoying all the previlleges.

    GOD SAVE PAKISTAN ( INSHA ALLAH)
