Let us welcome restoration of CJ and hope he will help in restoration of provincial rights

It is indeed a good decision by the PPP leadership to show flexibility and restore illegally fired justices including Chief Justice Iftikhar Choudhry. At the same time, after hearing that anti-Sindh and anti-Sindhi slogans were raised in Punjab, I am fearful that the federal judiciary may derail the train moving towards provincial autonomy. Unless the restored justices are pure hearted souls, their future rulings may favor rulings that favor federal jurisdictions over provincial matters and concurrent lists. I hope my fears are unfounded. Otherwise, Sindhis may see some real tough times.
