RAWALPINDI - Reiterating their stance regarding the scheduled Long March in Islamabad, lawyers have decided not to accept any new date for the restoration of judges by the rulers as they had already failed twice to fulfill their promise in this regard. Hamid Ali Khan member Pakistan Bar Council (PBC) and former president Supreme Court Bar Association said this while addressing the District Bar Association Rawalpindi here on Tuesday. He said that ruling party has already lost its credibility by backing out of its earlier promise to restore pre November 3 2007 judiciary, therefore, lawyers could not believe in them. Hamid Ali Khan made it clear that the protesting lawyers would not tolerate any impediment such as red zones during Long March in Islamabad on March 9 when they would stage sit-in on Constitution Avenue till restoration of deposed judiciary. He observed that the rulers had started playing down their movement as something insignificant but the lawyers would not sit idle till the restoration of deposed judiciary. He also urged upon the lawyers to ensure unity among their ranks, adding that they alone could not make their Long March and sit-in successful, as they needed to mobilise masses in this regard. Lauding the lawyers' movement, he said that it was the first home-grown movement meant for the independence of judiciary. Vice Chairman Punjab Bar Council Asif Ali Malik advocate in his address stressed the point that the PPP-led government should honour the words of late leader Benazir Bhutto about the deposed chief justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry. He said that the restoration of democracy and ouster of dictatorship in the country largely owed to the struggle of lawyers against military ruler. "The dictator has gone but his policies are lingering on causing uncertainty in the country," he added. He said that they would accord warm welcome to the deposed chief justice when he would come to Lahore High Court Bar in Rawalpindi on February 7 to administer oath to the newly elected representatives of 18 different bars of the division.
