"The Supreme Court verdict cannot be criticized as it would be contempt of the court", Mr. Sharif used to say in the 90s. Why not respect the judiciary and constitution now and set a new example by accepting the SC decision with good grace? Judges restoration is not the issue of the nation today. We want shelter, food, electricity and employment. We don't need anymore of the conflicts. The sooner it is understood within the PML-N, the better it will be for us all. PML-N should hold on to their guns. Very much so, But Nawaz Sharif should also beware of the conspirators around him. The judges' restoration should be decided in the house, not on the streets. Yes, the entire process should be democratic but there has to be some sort of improvisation. Sadly, the Sharif brothers are still in a trance. "Once bitten twice shy" is the adage they can't get out of their minds. -MIAN WARYYAM ALI, Lahore, via e-mail, February 26.
