Who is right?Who is wrong?(Judge from the constitution of Pakistan)

After his illegal actions against the judiciary and the constitution of Pakistan, the dictator almost daily give baseless statements justifying his illegal actions against the judiciary of Pakistan.

One of his allegation is tha judiciary was interfering in the executive and government

powers so to find the truth about the allegations  I decided to consult the constitution

to see what it says about the responsibilities of a judiciary:

Below are the words of Oath a judge takes

(from schedule 3 of the “Constitution of Islamic Republic of Pakistan).

[Articles 178 and 194]

(In the name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful.)

I, ____________, do solemnly swear that I will bear true faith and allegiance to Pakistan:

That, as Chief Justice of Pakistan (or a Judge of the Supreme Court of Pakistan or Chief Justice or a Judge of the High Court for the Province or Provinces of ____________) I will discharge my duties, and perform my functions, honestly to the best of my ability and faithfully in accordance with the Constitution of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan and the law:

That I will abide by the code of conduct issued by the Supreme Judicial Council:

That I will not allow my personal interest to influence my official conduct or my official decisions:

That I will preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan:

And that, in all circumstances, I will do right to all manner of people, according to law, without fear or favor, affection or ill-will.

May Allah Almighty heap and guide me (A’meen.)

Now if Musharraf says the judiciary was interfering then he should also think what the government and the executive

authorities were doing weren’t they violating the basic human rights?

(given by the constitution, with special reference to missing person’s case),

how about Musharraf’s elections?(the candidates eligibility in the constitution) and also in the cases of steelmills,

sugarcane etc.

Now lets look at what promises an armed force personnel has to do in his oath(The oath which Musharraf also took as an army officer).

Members Of The Armed Forces
[Article 244]

(In the name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful.)
I, ____________, do solemnly swear that I will bear true faith and allegiance to Pakistan and uphold the Constitution of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan which embodies the will of the people, that I will not engage myself in any political activities whatsoever and that I will honestly and faithfully serve Pakistan in the Pakistan Army (or Navy or Air Force) as required by and under the law.

May Allah Almighty help and guide me (A’meen)
You have the right to judge.

Judiciary was just doing there job(infact after a long time), whereas the dictator has violated the constitution and his oath.
