One thought on “‘Parliament with unlimited powers can secularise state’”

  1. I have often a question resonating in my mind that if temporary endorsement can be given to dictator then you should honor the people’s choice and provide same to democratic government unless you have some ulterior motives behind not doing so. First NRO was opened to weaken the government then fake degree case was highlighted to throw PPP out from corridors of powers. Judiciary has almost succeeded in your agenda to bring down democracy or weaken it. The stone judiciary have cast will go a long way. Similarly it is like saying it was not SC judge which hung Bhutto it was Tara Masih who actually hung Bhutto, it doesnt mean that SC and Zia are not to be blamed for his murder. Chief justice of Pakistan can’t walk away from his wrong doings of past unless he apologizes to the nation. It is also pertinent to mention that if colleagues of Chief justice can make political statements he can do the same and beg for forgiveness from people of Pakistan. Judges of superior judiciary are highly politicized and there is not even iota of doubt in that.
