We have seen all kinds of weird politics and political ‘changes’ in Pakistan. We have seen serving PM’s murder; overthrow/ change of governments by first Governor General and then by the next GG; overthrow/ change of governments by presidents; overthrow/ change of governments by military generals; now are you ready for a ‘judicial change’ of the government?
We have even seen a ‘judicial murder’. If they can kill an elected PM, why can’t they just dispose off another elected PM? Pakistani Adliya zindabad!? …
The “independent” judiciary went after the judges who took oath under PCO in 2007 but they can’t go after the judges who took oath under PCO in 1999. They don’t like extensions of other government officials but extended services of chosen brother judges. They opened some cases settled under infamous NRO but can’t do so with thousands of criminal cases settled under same NRO because they don’t have the spine to take on the … MQM.
They can’t take up the Mehrangate scandal case, which is sitting on their desks right under their noses since so many years but they have declared ‘Jihad’ against a singled out culprit. May be they don’t like his teeth!
How about a suo motu action against the judges who legalized the Musharraf coup? That is a fit case of High Treason under Article 6?

“I wonder if our fiercely independent chief justice has any time to spare from his judicial activism to look into the huge backlog of cases that has built up over the years, and the impact it has on our society and our economy.” ….

It’s not difficult to understand the remarks of MQM Chief Altaf Huusain, seeking military intervention in democratic Govt, because MQM has been the baby of Establishment and it has to be loyal with it, Pakistan getting aid from the World and pledges have been made for flood victims. Therefore, MQM cannot see democratic government to give relief to the flood victims of the country. Media has always been partial about MQM and they always project one side of party and always kept things under carpet.

Only 2 chiefs in 14 years, Kayani is “King” again! New theories on Pak General’s 3 -years extension.

ISLAMABAD – The truth is that the Chief of the Army Staff is the real ruler in Pakistan. It is he who decides who will be the president and prime minister of the country, according to political observers. They say even the dismissal and the re-instatement of the Supreme Court judges is the right of the army chief.
It is still fresh in the minds of the people of Pakistan that Gen. Parvez Musharraf as army chief bulldozed the whole judiciary…… Perhaps Dr. Ayesha Siddiqa was correct when she said it’s wrong to assume that military is out of Pakistan’s politics. “Military is not out of politics. The (military commanders) are not in driver’s seat and they need not be because they have chauffeurs to drive for them.” She was quoted as saying by Canadian Asian News. Dr. Siddiqa, a political analysit and author of famous book – Military Inc: Inside Pakistan’s Military Economy, was in Toronto in March this year to deliver a lecture. She opined that military commanders are the real rulers in Pakistan. It does not matter whether they occupy the front seat or take the back seat.
During his lecture in Toronto recently, another political analyst Dr. Haider Nizamani, a professor at the University of Columbia, said that in a greater interest of the country, the army should stop calling the “political shots.”

It is not the question that general Kiyani is a capable army chief or not. It is also not the question whether the situation on the ground in Pakistan calls for extending general ’s term of employment up to three more years.
The question is whether democratic forces have taken this decision with free will or under internal and external duress.
Extension in general Kiyani’s employment has proved that democratic forces have accepted their inability to prevail in decision making process in Pakistan . It is definitely a decision made by the army high command and delivered by the political forces.

PPP should quit provincial coalition on differences: LHC CJ
LAHORE: The Pakistan People’s Party should separate itself from the coalition in the Punjab government if it has any differences with it, a private TV channel quoted Lahore High Court Chief Justice Khawaja Muhammad Sharif as saying on Tuesday, adding that his personal relations with the Sharif brothers can never come in the way of justice.
The LHC CJ was addressing a ceremony in Hafizabad, where he inaugurated a new chamber of lawyers. He said he shares 40-year old relations with the Sharif brothers, but his relations with both the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leaders have never come in the way of justice. He said some elements were creating baseless propaganda against him and his son, the channel reported. …

The following news items in two different dailies, if put together, would seem to indicate that there may be a surrender deal in the offing with Fazlullah and his gang. Maybe we will get to hear the good news before Eid. The News also suggested in a news item today that Muslim Khan’s capture was also a surrender under some deal (probably to release his family members) and made to look like a catch in order to protect him from his own Taliban.
