RAWALPINDI - Legal community Wednesday organised a car rally to sensitise the masses regarding the importance of 'Long March' in the federal capital for the restoration of deposed judges and supremacy of law in the country. The lawyers confronting Section 144 imposed by the District Nazim, organised the rally after the driver of mini-truck hired by the District Bar Association (DBA) was arrested by the Civil Lines Police apparently in the bid to foil the rally. A large numbers of the lawyers came out of the courts and blocked the busy Kachari Chowk forcing police led by a SP to release the driver Imran. The lawyers did not concede to the demand of police about not carrying out the car rally. They started their rally from district courts and went to Raja Bazaar passing from Marrair Chowk, Liaqat Bagh, College Road, Moti Bazaar and gathered at Fawara Chowk where their representatives made fiery speeches before returning to the courts. Addressing on the occasion, Lahore High Court Bar Association (LHCBA) General Secretary Malik Siddique Awan said that detention and harassment could not deter legal fraternity from proceeding with the long march as they had been struggling for the independent judiciary well before the PPP-led government was formed. The lawyers urging on the business community and the citizens to participate in the long march as the protest would be entirely peaceful and non-violent. "Every sensible person wants the unconstitutional steps of a dictator to be undone by the democratic government that had backed out twice from its pledges," he maintained. President DBA Chaudhry Toufiq Asif told that from late Thursday night, the local police had started raiding the houses of the leaders of the lawyers to arrest them. "Police have so far not arrested any representative of the lawyers and they will not be able to restrain them from marching on Islamabad and staging an indefinite sit-in," he added. The lawyers observed boycott of the court proceedings both at high and district courts after 10 am.
