Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry has declared that the courts responsibility is to remain neutral and to trial Musharraf for his alleged rebel is the job of another forum. The CJ was commenting on the stance of former president Supreme Court Bar Association Hamid Khan who continued his arguments in the case of ad hoc judges appointment in Sindh High Court. Hamid Khan adopted the stance before the court that the Supreme Court can declare former military ruler Pervez Musharrafs steps on November 3, 2007 unconstitutional and can trial him under the charge of carrying out rebel against the state. The CJ observed that the court can not sentence any punishment to anyone in the case, but can declare the steps of November 3 unconstitutional. Justice Shahid Siddiqui, one of the 14-judges hearing the case, observed that to trial Musharraf was up to Parliament and the nation. The CJ, during the arguments of Hamid Khan, said that at least 41 steps were taken unconstitutionally after the imposition of emergency rule on November 3, 2007, by then military ruler General (r) Pervez Musharraf. During the proceedings, Justice Khalil-ur-Rehman Ramdey asked the Attorney General Latif Khosa that what the government has done with the emergency order and the steps taken after its imposition. On Khosas stance before the court that the government is bound to your orders, Justice Jawad S. Khowaja said that one and half year have been passed but the government did nothing to annul the unconstitutional steps. He said that the apex court has not restricted the Parliament to perform its duties. Justice Khowaja asked the Attorney General to present the governments stance on order of imposing emergency rule issued on November 3, 2007 and other ordinances issued in its aftermath. Attorney General informed the court that the government was working on a constitutional package to annul such amendments. However, on his stance CJ Chaudhry observed that there was no connection between the constitutional amendment and the ordinances. He said that the ordinances issued in post-emergency scenario could easily be thrown away by the Parliament with simple majority. He said that the government waited for more than one and half year to annul these unconstitutional steps. Secretary Interior Kamal Shah presented a report before the court on the security situation and terrorist attacks occurred in the country from November 3 to December 15, 2007 the period in which the country was being ruled under emergency order. He informes the 14-member bench hearing the case that 116 people were killed and 279 injured in 160 terrorist attacks during the emergency rule.
