LAHORE - Former President Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA) and Chairman National Coordination Council, Barrister Aitzaz Ahsan has said the Swat-like situation is possible anywhere in the country as major reforms are required in the state system. Addressing at a reception hosted by Punjab Bar Council in the honour of Chief Justice of Pakistan Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry and others here on Saturday, Aitzaz said Pakistan was facing a highly critical situation at the moment and changing character of the state was inevitable to address it. We need to end narrow mindedness and to raise the state on the ideas of modern Islamic welfare state which Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Jinnnah had propounded, he said adding, Swat and Malakand is a symbol of the situation which can take place anywhere in the country. He said Swat-like elements present everywhere to create a situation and we need to find out a new direction to combat it. Aitzaz presented five-points to orientate the state in the right directions. First of all, he said, the state must abolish dual system of education and enforce a uniform single education system in the whole of country. Secondly, he said, the state must bring about revolutionary agricultural reforms and the third is immediate industrial reforms in a manner that gap between the employees and the employers narrows down to the satisfaction of both and fourth, judicial reform, which Aitzaz said, has been introduced with the announcement of National Judicial Policy. The fifth one, he said, is the provincial autonomy. Barrister Aitzaz said these reforms would strengthen bonds between the state and the subject. He commended lawyers role in the last movement and said now they had to act like a think tank to consider what requires for better state of the affairs.
