CHANGA MANGA - Federal Minister for Law Babar Awan on Friday said he would appear before the Supreme Court on May 25 on behalf of the federal government for the rule of law. He was addressing members of Bar Associations of Kasur, Chunian and Pattoki at Changa Manga Forest Park. Babar said: I am not afraid of courts. PPP believes in democratic values, rule of law and supremacy of the Constitution and it is not afraid of any challenge. We are always ready to face challenges and know very well how to deal with them because we want strong institutions. Awan said the parliamentarians proved their maturity by passing the 18th Amendment and flushed out two martial laws in a democratic way for establishing a new social contract. No sixth warship will come to save the country and only democracy can create unity among the nation for the stability of the country and to overcome every challenge, he added. Pakistan is an internationally successful state and it would never be a failed one, he observed. He added it was a major achievement for Pakistan after the 18th Amendment that the Prime Minister was invited to the International Nuclear Conference and the entire world admitted its nuclear status. He said the federal and five provincial governments had come into power for a period of five years and they would complete constitutional terms. Advisor to the Prime Minister Sardar Aseff Ahmed Ali, Munir Ahmed Khan, Punjab Bar Council Vice-Chairman Mumtaz Mustafa, PBC Executive Committee Chairman Rana Muhammad Akram and President Chunian Bar Malik Nasim were also present on the occasion. Addressing the participants, Sardar Aseff said the PPP had contributed a lot during the struggle for the restoration of judiciary and the sacrifices of the PPP workers could not be forgotten. He said the struggle of lawyers and people was only for the restoration of judiciary and not to create another power factor in the country. He said President Asif Zardari and Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani had issued directives for implementation of the courts orders. He added the President had immunity under Article 248 of the Constitution and the United Nations Convention also protected the heads of states from any court proceedings.
