LAHORE - The PML-N is all set to participate in 'November 3 Black Day' on Monday (today) to mark the occasion against the dismissal of several superior court judges by Pervez Musharraf a year ago. PML-N Quaid Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif is likely to join the rally after returning from Dubai. The party has also arranged his (Nawaz Sharif's) telephonic address if he could not grace the occasion due to some unavoidable reasons. All the necessary arrangements regarding holding of rallies on November 3, at Lahore and Islamabad have been finalised. To ensure the optimum participation in the Black Day being marked against sacking of superior court judges by Pervez Musharraf and their non-restoration by the PPP government, the PML-N has entrusted MNA and MPAs a task to divide the party activists into several groups and transport them towards proposed venues. A number of placards and banners, bearing slogans regarding restoration of judges and undoing all unconstitutional steps taken by former President Pervez Musharraf on November 3, have already been arranged. The call for the observance of Black Day came from the legal fraternity against the November 3 emergency and deposition of 60 judges of the superior courts by the military despot. According to schedule, two rallies will be carried out in this regard. At Lahore, the rally will be taken out from Nasir Bagh to GPO Chowk while at Islamabad the rally will be held from Murree Road up to the Supreme Court building. Activists and local leaders hailing from Lahore and Lahore division will participate in the Lahore rally. Others belonging from Faisalabad, Gujrat, Attock, Rawalpindi, Jehlum and Taxala will join Islamabad rally. Central leadership including Ch Nisar Ali Khan, Zafar Ali Jhagra, Javed Hashmi, Ahsan Iqbal and others will lead the Islamabad protest rally. Punjab leadership including Sardar Zulfiqar Ali Khosa, Khawaja Saad Rafiq, Hamza Shahbaz, Mujtaba Shuja-ur-Rehman, Mian Marghoob Ahmed and others will head the Lahore rally. Through its significant participation in the protest, the PML-N's cardinal effort is to dispel the impression that it has become lukewarm to the struggle for reinstatement of deposed Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry and some other dismissed judges. Commenting on the Black Day PML-N Punjab President Sardar Zulfiqar Ali Khosa said, "Democracy has been restored but the judiciary has not been, even after the passage of one year." He said that the PML-N would make its presence felt in the rally to be taken out in provincial capital. "We will prove again that all the political parties and the civil society are together in backing the restoration of the pre-Nov 3 judiciary," he said. He said that the victory of Ali Ahmed Kurd and the defeat of M Zafar Ahmed in the recent election of the president of the Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA) had fired up the lawyers, who wanted and were struggling for the restoration of the pre-Nov 3 judiciary, to come forward in a big way to protest. PML-N Secretary General International Affairs Sheikh Qaiser Mehmood said that overseas Pakistanis would also observe black day on November 3 to express solidarity with the deposed judges.
