LAHORE - Jamaat-e-Islami has rejected the PPP government's proposed constitutional package for the restoration of judges, observing that it actually aims at clipping the freedom of judiciary, protecting Gen Musharraf from impeachment and providing constitutional cover to NRO and his all other unconstitutional actions including the sacking of judges on Nov 3, 2007. In the report of committee constituted by JI ameer Qazi Hussain Ahmad to review the PPP's constitutional package, the committee headed by JI naib ameer Chaudhry Rehmat Elahi, termed the constitutional package a bunch of contradictions and nothing and a subtle attempt to provide constitutional cover to the unconstitutional actions of Gen Pervez Musharraf. The report said that through the package PPP wants to keep PCO Chief Justice Abdul Hameed Dogar as the constitutional Chief Justice of Pakistan in future and to make drastic cuts in the powers of Federal Shariat Court in Financial and Administrative affairs. The meetings of the JI's committee were also attended by its other members including secretary general Syed Munawar Hassan, naib ameers Prof Ghafoor Ahmad, Senator Prof Khurshid Ahmad, Senator Prof Ibrahim Khan, Liaqat Baloch, Asadullah Bhutto and Abdul Rehman Ansari Advocate. The report said that package is nothing but a political ploy to maintain status quo and shows that PPP is making a serious deviation from impeaching Gen Musharraf and reversing the unconstitutional sacking of judges. The report said that JI's stance is clear that all the judge sacked unconstitutionally on Nov 3, 07 should be restored, Gen Musharraf must be impeached and tried for all his unconstitutional and illegal measures taken over the last eight years, and most importantly, the actions of Nov 3, 07 must be reversed instead of protecting through any constitutional amendment. Regarding NRO, the JI committee demanded that independent judiciary should decide about it by reopening the case taken up by the Supreme Court before Nov 3, 2007. The JI committee proposed that Govt must restore the constitution as on Oct. 12 '99 in the light of the demands of Charter of Democracy, London APC, APDM and other opposition parties. And if further amendments were needed in the constitution then it should be made in consultation with all the political parties, the report concluded.
