In a newspaper report, Mr Ansar Abbasi claims that government is trying to divide the judiciary. In this regard, he has also quoted the statements of the Lahore High Court Judges Mr. Justice Khwaja Sharif and Mr. Justice Saqib Nisar. I don't believe these judges can issue the type of ridiculous statements he attributes to them. Judges should have solidarity with the Constitution of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, rather than any person. According to the Constitution of Pakistan, the Chief Justice cannot move the summary of a serving Supreme Court judge for his adhoc appointment post-retirement. Following the principles set by then Supreme Court judges for their appointment in Al-Jihad case, the Chief Justice cannot advise promotion of junior judge from the High Courts to the Supreme Court either. Here is a question that begs an honest answer; if the matter of Khwaja Sharif and Justice Saqib is purely constitutional, why is the Geo TV and the Jang Group publications, and their luminaries such as Dr Shahid Masood, Shaheen Sehbai, Ansar Abbasi, Kamran Khan, Haroon Rasheed, Irfan Siddiqui and Saleh Zaafar running this propaganda campaign against the PPP government and trying to influence it one way or the other? Why were they practically lobbying for Khalil-ur-Rahman Ramday through articles, investigative reports and talk shows? Why do they presume that only these judges, who by the way were all accomplices in the high treason committed by Musharraf, are the only hope for a better Pakistan? -MUHAMMAD ABBAS BHUTTO, Larkana, January 19
