Reinstatement of Judges- vigilance is required

This is really good analysis,and overall I agree(at personal level),and in my opinion there is no need for celebrations which is premature act—Time will tell us and indicate more about this so-called independent judicial system(INCLUDING RECENT EVENT of restoration of Judges).Yes,this is true that Right Wing parties (WHO ARE PRODUCTS OF MARTIAL LAW OF ZIA REGIME)who have damaged Democracy always—are now celebrating their first success and have proved once again supremacy/upper hand of Punjab dominance in Pakistan? particularly after assassination of Shaheed Benazir Bhutto!.Considering all factors/players involved in Pakistan politics(domestic and internationally) in my best judgment this so called victory of lawyers movement will be short-lived and same politicians particularly from Punjab will create a huge resistance against struggle of provincial autonomy and other national Rights of small provinces.Also we will closely watch the role of present/future Supreme courts(including their composition) in Pakistan and their likely decisions in regard to Rights of small provinces. Again, in my opinion it is still too early to celebrate for Sindhis because sooner or later we may come across another wave of political turmoil/turbulence in the country with involvement of new faces of JI, TI and other products of Martial law like Shareef brothers and so called Sindhi nationalist elements inside Sindh- –therefore extreme vigilance is required here as PAST indicates only disasters in Pakistan politics and who controlled that Past?? Without any doubt,same elements as mentioned above.
