Everyone with a smiling face appeared trying to take a lead to congratulate others on this victory. Drums beating and dance continued while congratulation SMS mail remained unabated even on Tuesday. People at every level and of every class anxiously waited for the notification from the law ministry for putting the judges back to the offices. The atmosphere was quite relaxed and the people felt every thing coming correct under the umbrella of independent judiciary. Which indeed is what the masses expect of it not as a matter of constitutional and legal requirement but also as a just reward of their struggle, commented former Member Punjab Bar Council Atir Mahmood. Outside the residence of Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry a large number of people had gathered to greet him on his return to the office but a few were allowed entry by the tight security placed there. Barrister Aitzaz Ahsan went to congratulate him along with his family while through his spokesman, Athar Minallah, it was conveyed to others that now demand of the CJ office did not permit him meeting with the private public and those whose cases were pending before the court. Students of Jamia Hafsa were also denied meeting on the same plea. Security outside the CJP residence was beefed up and his office was equipped with the necessary protocol. The huge gathering outside the residence only once saw the CJP waving to them from the balcony. In City, the restored judges received congratulations but they did not come up in the public. In the City bars, it was rejoicing everywhere. Lawyers and others chanted slogans on the victory of their cause and struggle. Different delegations visited the bars and presented flowers and sweets to the community. With glowing faces, lawyers and everyone was showing a tremendous confidence and oozed out a satisfaction carrying in the mind the picture of a very bright future of the country. In the City markets, bhangra, sweets distribution, and exchange of greetings remained in order. At some places in the Punjab, food was also served to the poor to thank Allah Almighty for the great success given by Him to the entire Pakistani community.
