QUETTA: Deposed chief justice got a huge welcome as he visited his hometown on Monday, further galvanising opposition to embattled President Pervez Musharraf.

Iftikhar Chaudhry travelled to Quetta to address lawyers exactly a week after the country’s new government freed him and nine other judges from house arrest.

“Justice Chaudhry received a rousing welcome by a huge crowd,” Athar Minallah, a close associate of Chaudhry told AFP after the judge flew into the city. Thousands of lawyers in black suits and workers from political parties waved flags and portraits of Chaudhry as the judge arrived at the dusty airport near the Afghan border amid tight security. As Chaudhry came out of the terminal building the crowd showered him with rose petals and burst into chants of “Go Musharraf, go”, an AFP reporter said. Pick-up trucks full of armed police guarded Chaudhry as his convoy drove into the city centre. Guards using metal detectors swept the area around the airport for explosive devices. His visit here is the first stop on a nationwide tour during which he will address lawyers, echoing a similar tour last year when tens of thousands of people turned out to hear him.

The bullet-proof vehicle of deposed chief justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhary broke down a moment after he arrived here and came out of the airport on Monday. The lawyers had to pull the vehicle later while tying it to another vehicle.

Four photo-journalists were injured when they fell on the ground while covering the welcome rally of Justice Iftikhar Chaudhary at the airport here on Monday. The injured photographers included Kelvin (Intikhab), Mohsin Naseer (APP), Naseem James (Express) and Prince Ayub (Bakhabar). While talking to media men outside the house of deposed Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Iftikhar Chaudhary Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA) President Aitzaz Ahsan has said that the legal fraternity does not want a weak parliament, however, conspiracies are being hitched against deposed judges in the presidency.

The lawyers have no reservation on Murree accord, he said. We have given time of 30 days to the new government for reinstatement of deposed judges, he said, adding that, the legal fraternity would end their movement if new Government fulfils its promise with regard to reinstatement of deposed judge with in 30 days. All bar associations, he said, would be silent and there would be celebrations around the country after reinstatement of deposed judges. The lawyer community strongly condemned whatever happened with deposed Justice Khalil-ur-Rehman Ramday. It is recalled that the belongings of Justice Ramday and his family were thrown out of the house in the Justice Lodges some days back. No department can evacuate house or shop without judicial action and notice then how the house of deposed justice Khalil-ur-Rehman Ramday can be evacuated, he questioned.

Answering to a question, he said, deposed Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Iftikhar Chaudhary so far has no plan to visit graveyard of late former prime minister Benazir Bhutto, however, maybe he will go in future to offer Fateh there.
