Lawyers hold protest rally from Parliament to Supreme Court—>Online

July 11, 2008 3 comments

ISLAMABAD: Hundreds of lawyers belonging to different Bar Associations of Punjab staged a protest rally from parliament house to Supreme Court for the restoration of the sacked judges and supremacy of judiciary, the activists of Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf (PTI) and Jamat Islami JI also participated in the rally.

Sources informed that the lawyers belonging to Attock, Jhang, Taxila, Multan, Sialkot, Jehlum, Gujrat, Murree, Islamabad and Rawalpindi Bar Associations staged protest rally from parliament house to Supreme Court while uprooting the barbed wires and restrictions as created by the police on the constitution avenue.

The furious lawyers foiled every bid to restrict them while leading to Supreme Court and vehemently chanted slogans against the PCO judges, President Musharraf and PPP and demanded for the restoration of the sacked judiciary before the parliament house.

While addressing the rally Hamid Ali khan informed that the deposed judges could be restored by simple resolution of the parliament, yet the PPP led Government has deliberately complicated the situation by introducing constitutional package and has hurt the feelings of the masses by taking “U Turn” from the Murree declaration, he added.

He further reiterated, ” We will hold more long marches and will not deviate from further sacrifices for the reinstatement of the sacked judges” and will restore the supremacy of law and constitution in Pakistan.

The president of Rawalpindi High Court Bar Sardar Asmattullah Khan while addressing the participants of the rally appreciated the lawyers huge gathering, which has defeated the statements that the lawyers have lost their strength after the long march and have also ended the confusion among the masses related to the lawyers movement.

While encouraging the participants from Multan Bar association in the scorching heat, he termed it as a victory of the lawyers’ movement who gathered before the parliament house in large numbers at the call of the lawyers’ movement leaders.

The other Bar Associations presidents while addressing on the occasion reiterated that the struggle as continuing in the country for the restoration of sacked judges will also continue in future unless the sovereignty of the constitution and the judiciary in the country and the time has approached when PML (N) has to decide either they are with lawyers or with Zardari, as the masses could not be fooled any more and the lawyers will come to Islamabad again in caravans and will not retreat unless the restoration of deposed judges.

The Rawalpindi High Court bar has also arranged the meal for the participants of the protest rally after the rally termination.

Some Updates Related To Black Flag Week–>Emergency mailing list and Black Flag week mailing list

Today on March 9 2008 in front of the High Commission of Pakistan, London, the Pakistani community in the UK responded to the call of the Supreme Court Bar Association to show solidarity with the lawyers movement in Pakistan to restore judiciary and to ask Musharraf to step down immediately with Go Musharraf Go chanting. This is as mandated by the people of Pakistan based on the result of the recent elections.


There was also a clear demand for immediate release of the Chief Justice of Pakistan and others who are under house arrest and strong condemnation of violence used against the lawyers, civil society activists, students, political party members in Islamabad today who were trying to meet with the Chief Justice.
 
In the protest today, we had representation from the civil society including students, UK Lawyers Committee for Human Rights and Justice for Pakistan, Sibghat Kadri QC, political parties ie PPP, PML-N, PTI etc.

Based on the recent events today, we are very pleased to hear that a pact has been signed between the two mainstream parties to restore judicairy to the pre Nov 3rd state within 30 days and the London protest today shows how strongly the UK Pakistanis see this as a primary pillar for a democratic Pakistan.

Regs, 
 
Sibghat Kadri QC, Rabia Zia (UK PTI)
