Its time to Take Action! (Go! Dictatorship Go!)

We neither are  animals so that who ever wants to take us in the direction he wants us to go and we will obey him without thinking nor we are slaves, we are free people.

We as a nation need to think

and act as an honest, just and

freedom loving nation.

In this time of difficulty the nation must rise for the survival of Pakistan and tell the dictator Musharraf we want to live with freedom under the rule of law.

And people who think all this effort is a waste of time.

“Whoever amongst you sees anything objectionable, let him change it with his hand, if he is not able, then with his tongue, and if he is not even able to do so, then with his heart, and the latter is the weakest form of faith.”(Hadith)
Go! Dictatorship Go!

Lawyers In Pakistan Say NO To President Musharraf

Here is a blog post written by a citizen of Barbados on the crisis in Pakistan.

LAHORE, Pakistan (CNN) — Baton-wielding police fought with lawyers outside courthouses in Islamabad and Lahore again Tuesday, arresting dozens more as they enforced Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf’s crackdown on judicial activism. With one in four lawyers now jailed and many judges detained in their homes, surrounded by soldiers, Pakistan’s judicial system is in lockdown three days after Musharraf suspended the constitution and declared a state of emergency.

Former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto left Karachi for Islamabad Tuesday for meetings with other opposition leaders about how to respond to Musharraf’s declaration. Chief Justice Iftikhar Mohammed Chaudhry — fired by Musharraf Saturday — in a phone call to a gathering of lawyers urged them to go to “every corner of Pakistan and give the message that this is the time to sacrifice.” Musharraf’s declaration noted a “visible ascendancy in the activities of extremists and incidents of terrorist attacks” and it blamed a judiciary that was “at cross purposes” with his government’s efforts “to control this menace.”

t1homeislamabadrallyap.jpg The political turmoil which is unfolding in Pakistan does not directly affect us in Barbados…or does it? Maybe we can draw one interesting parallel. We often take for granted the freedoms which we enjoy in Barbados. Maybe it explains why some people are willing to speak-out and to highlight the vulnerabilities which can appear in any democratic system of government from time to time. A read of the story quoted above immediately caused us to sympathize with our fellow world citizens who are literally giving their lives to ensure that freedoms which Barbadians currently enjoy they too can can live to experience. There is the perception that people who live in Asia are ‘bare-foot and ignorant’ and profiling does occur given the spin of our Western media when highlighting issues on the Asian continent.

We wish to assure our readers that this is far from the case.Some of the most intelligent people on the planet reside in Asia!

What has attracted our attention to the plight of the Pakistanis is the willingness of lawyers in that country to engage in ‘judicial activism’ now that President Musharraf has suspended the constitution of Pakistan. Although our system of government in Barbados is not threatened in the same way Pakistanis perceive theirs to be, we just wondered how fat and comfortable our professional groups in our society have become; including our lawyers, that they would be willing to put it all on the line ‘to fight and defend their honor’. Some people will of course suggest that we are not comparing apples with apples in the parallel we have chosen, but that is OK.

The purpose of this article is to provide a reality check for Barbadians and all those people who are fortunate to live in societies which have relatively free systems of government. Our freedoms have not occurred by accident and neither will they be sustained by accident.

Justice Iftikhar rejects Musharraf blames to justify emergency

Justice Iftikhar rejects Musharraf blames to justify emergency

ISLAMABAD: De-Jure Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry has rejected the blames leveled

 by President General Pervez Musharraf to justify declaration of emergency. 

The rulers had feared that Supreme Court would give decree in Musharraf eligibility contrary

to their wishes so they imposed emergency in the country, Justice Iftikhar said.

 Iftikhar Chaudhry was addressing the lawyers first time after imposition of the

emergency.

He said that the charges framed by President Musharraf against Supreme Court

are baseless and unfounded. Declaration of emergency has damaged the

 constitution, he said, adding that Supreme Court had always worked within

constitutional framework.
