There's is a massive movement going-on in Pakistan for the re-appointment of Ex. Chief Justice of Pakistan. Despite of going into the details, I will focus on some important points about the current Long March.
In the morning, there was a massive troop deployment outside the Karachi City Courts. Administration announced that they are allowing the Lawyers to enter the premises but Asadullah Bhutto (Advocate) of Jamat-e-Islami was arrested, however, he was released later. Similarly Prof. Abdul Ghafoor, Vice PresidentJamat-e-Islami was also arrested from Karachi despite the announcement of interior Advisor Rahman Malik, that no prominent leader will be arrested. Additionally, the house of Imran Khan Chairman Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf is raided thrice.
A friend told me that the police raided the house of his neighbor yesterday, who had passed away in 2001. When I talked to a few workers of PML-N, PTI and Jamat-e-Islami, they told that they have never faced such massive raids before.
Despite of all this situation, some lawyers managed to stage the rally and headed towards the internal Sindh from Karachi, everything was going alright, in the meanwhile, a news started to scroll on the TV screens that Altaf Hussain has just talked to the President Asif Ali Zardari and Farooq H. Naik. As we expected, just after that, vehicles set on fire and firing started at several places in Karachi, giving a reason to the administration to claim that the protest is not peaceful.
The point, I am referring to is, who set the vehicles on fire? who started firing in Karachi? If they were lawyers, why didn't they do so in Quetta?? Why is the timing of telephone call of Altaf Hussain and the mishappenings is so close?
Current news is that Ali Ahmad Kurd, president supreme court bar association has staged a sit-in at the border of Balochistan, as they are warned that they will be arrested as soon as they enter Sindh.
Things are becoming worse, and why shouldn't they? Wasn't it our population to vote PPP?? Didn't we know that Asif Ali Zardari had assassinated Benazir Bhutto? Didn't we know that Asif Ali Zardari has an international rank in corruption? So why did we vote PPP???
If the Pakistanis do realize their past mistakes, the game is not over yet! They have time to participate in the long march, for the great cause of justice! And they have the decision in their hands... they can elect the next government honestly and wisely!
