12th May a black day

by Aziz Narejo, TX, USA

Lawyers, political groups, human rights activists and pro-democracy elements will be observing black day tomorrow to condemn the terrorism on the day a year ago to block the Chief Justice, Mr. Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhary’s visit to Karachi at the bidding of military dictator Pervez Musharraf.

The fascist group’s violence that day had resulted in a large number of casualties and huge loss to properties. It was a brutal attack on the lawyers, journalists, political activists and general public to stop them from welcoming the CJ and to hamper their struggle for non partisan independence of judiciary, freedom of media, democracy and rule of law.

It is essential that all of us join in to observe the black day and demand that all culprits who launched a reign of terror on the people must be brought to justice. There should be no compromise with the criminals if we don’t want death to principles, justice and fairness. (May 11, 2007)
