Imran Khan had said after restoration of the CJP by Prime Minister Gilani that although a bit sidetracked, the revolution in Pakistan had already set in and our people would see its effect within six months time. In a recent speech to his peers and followers, the CJP had taken the stance that all judges, be they from the District/Sessions strata or the Supreme Court, belonged to the same family and there should not be any lack of communication and interaction between them. Anybody having any idea of bureaucratic hierarchy in government and judicial setup would understand what a revolution is in the making in this country. This openness, interactions and movement of ideas along the entire hierarchal line, would surely place checks on corruption besides increasing efficiency and objectivity. I only hope the same openness would be talked about and deployed in all other departments of the government. The CJPs most important advice to his fellow judges was to take ownership of the cases they are hearing and then to actively follow them up for reaching conclusion at the earliest. He also advised the chief justices of the high courts to take continuous and regular cognizance of cases pending in their domains. This, along with the computerization of pending cases, as he suggested, would certainly go a long way towards elimination of manipulation by the administrative staff of the courts. And if that happens, it would revolutionize the entire system in Pakistan. I only hope that the media and intellectuals of the country, instead of spending time in debate on whether the judges have become politicized, or overstepping their limits or stepping into administrative domain etc, etc, would to see if the guidelines given by the CJP are implemented and followed. -SYED SAYEF HUSSAIN, Karachi, February 22.
