ISLAMABAD The seeds that Law Minister Dr Babar Awan had sown earlier this year by distributing huge funds among the bar councils and the associations have started bearing fruits in the shape of lawyers protest in the District Courts, Lahore. Qazi Anwar, President Supreme Court Bar Association talking to TheNation said whatever was happening in Lahore was the result of funds distributed by Federal Minister for Law and Justice Babar Awan and Senator Latif Khosa to the bars across the country in order to divide the lawyers. He said: Latif Khosa group is trying its level best to divide the lawyers and we would not let that happen. However, the former SCBA president Ali Ahmed Kurd said why the lawyers would take money from Babar Awan and Latif Khosa. He condemned the polices excessive use of force against the protesting lawyers. Baton charge and shelling over lawyers by the Punjab police will have multidimensional affects as relationship between bar and bench would see some change. Some lawyers have initiated a campaign to malign the judges after Fridays violence in Lahore High Court Bar. Political analysts say that the unrest will lend some leverage to the federal government and if the events prolong then the government could further buy time in already pending cases like implementation of December 16 judgment on NRO and appointment of Chairman NAB. PPP sources revealed that emerging situation in LHC Bar Association would be useful for the government, which was seriously thinking to play up the situation by lending every possible support to lawyers. Peoples Lawyers Forum President Raja Abdul Rehman told TheNation, If District and Sessions Judge Zawar Ahmed Shaikh had earlier been transferred then this situation would not have emerged. He said: Transferring a judge of subordinate judiciary is not a big issue. The consequence of the Punjab police action against lawyers would end the romance between Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz) and lawyers community. The PML-N has been the backbone of lawyers movement, which had restored the apex judiciary twice after it was axed by the former dictator Musharraf. It is an open secret that PML-N had supported the lawyers movement and in return managed to grab the support of major chunk of lawyers community. The incident would affect the Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA) elections, due at end of this month.
