LAHORE - Lawyers community will not allow Parliament, political parties and the government to tamper with the original 1973 Constitution under a conspiracy to 'legalise induction of judges into judiciary through Parliamentary Commission, which aims at snatching independence of the judiciary. The lawyers at large feel highly perturbed at proposals of the Parliamentary Committee which instead of repealing 17th Amendment and 58-2(b) brought by two dictators has started working on the evil agenda of subjugating judiciary and putting it under the thumb of the Executive by amending Articles 177 and 193 pertaining to judiciary, which had been part of the original 1973 Constitution. This is the gist of a number of resolutions passed at All Pakistan Lawyers Representative Convention held under the chairmanship of SCBA President Qazi Anwar at the Karachi Shuhda Hall of the Lahore High Court Bar (LHCBA) on Saturday. Lawyers top leader Hamid Khan, Presidents of four High Court Bar Associations, members of Provincial Bar Councils and a large number of representatives of District and Tehsil representatives participated in the convention, showing probability of a new protest movement against the government in the near future. Slogans against President Asif Ali Zardari were also raised in the four hour long convention while the top leaders did not ask the young lawyers to stop targeting Zardari in the sloganeering. Traditional chants of 'Chief tere jan nisar also rocked the bar premises. They warned the government not to play with the sanctity of Constitution and working of newly librated judiciary saying that lawyers were still ready to shed their blood for the protecting supremacy of Constitution and the judiciary. In his Presidential address, SCBA President Qazi Anwar said that lawyers would fight against efforts being made for bringing changes in the basic structure of 1973 Constitution to remove or amend Articles 177 and 193 to suppress judiciary. He said that he alongwith other office-bearers of bar associations had held a meeting with PML-N Quaid Nawaz Sharif and told him that lawyers would protest against government if the judiciary was put under Executive in violation of provisions of the Constitution regarding separation of judiciary and executives organs of the State. Qazi Anwar said that Nawaz Sharif also accepted that it was wrong on the part of the govt and he would consult his teams of legal experts on the question of changes in the Constitution other than removal of 17th Amendment and 58-2(b). SCBA President said that hard time had come again for lawyers and judiciary and they would have to make some emergent decisions to protect the judiciary and the basic structure of Constitution and lawyers might feel the need to announce a new plan any time about protests and agitations to stop the government from exceeding the limits. Qazi Anwar sought permission of the convention to authorise him to make any emergent decision, as it was a testing time and it was not possible to call the convention everyday. The convention granted the permission and passed a resolution that SCBA President could make any decisions by consulting just Presidents of the four High Court Bar associations of the country. Senior lawyers leader Hamid Khan while rejecting the Parliamentary Commission on the appointment of judges said lawyers movement had not ended yet rather it was entering a new phase of protecting the judiciary. He said fourth phase of lawyers movement had started and in this phase lawyers would frustrate the evil plans of the government which was blocking the way of judiciary for stopping implementation of NRO. He said second phase completed on July 25,2009 when PCO judges had been removed from the body of judiciary, in third phase SC verdict on NRO came, and now fourth phase had started in which on Feb 14 SC suspended Presidential notification of appointment of judges made against the will of Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry. Referring to absence of former SCBA Presidents Ali Ahmed Kurd and Aitzaz Ahsan, Hamid Khan said faces did not matter as the cause brought new leaders and said that CJ Iftikhar Chaudhry had become a symbol of independent judiciary which he was still standing at the same high pedestal. He said as long as one lawyer was alive the struggle for rule of law, independence of judiciary and supremacy of Constitution would not end so the government should invite another agitation like the one started on Feb 14, 2010 in the shape of countrywide strike against the Presidential notification on judges appointments against will of Chief Justice of Pakistan. A resolution passed in the convention said 'National Convention of Lawyers at Lahore views with deep concern that the SC judgment of December 16 on NRO is not being implemented by the government despite a lapse of three months and demands its immediate implementation. The convention also showed concern on the abduction of Iftikhar ul Haq, Supreme Court lawyer, from Quetta and demanded from Balochistan government to ensure his immediate recovery otherwise lawyers would announce countrywide protests. Addressing the convention, Balochistan High Court Bar President Baz Ali Kakar said that lawyers of Balochistan were ready to launch a movement against the government, which was trying to browbeat the judiciary by imposing Parliamentary Commission on it and hurdles in the implementation of its judgments especially on NRO. LHC Pindi Bar President Zulfiqar Ali Naqvi said lawyers had already fought with a dictator for the independence of judiciary and lawyers would not compromise on the question regarding supremacy of Constitution and free judiciary. He said the government should not live in fools paradise that it could divide lawyers as majority of the lawyers were ready to fight and shed their blood for sanctity of judiciary. SCBA Secretary Raja Zulqarnain said this Parliament was neither a Legislative Assembly nor an independent assembly because it was part of the remains of Pervez Musharraf. The Parliamentary Committee could make proposal for removal of 17th Amendment and 58-2(B) but instead of doing this it was pushing the country towards a clash of institutions.
