Lordship CJ’s selective honesty ? – by Jinnah Bhutto

There are few things which cannot be compromised based on our religious teachings. Firstly, if you ever find out that your Imam in the mosque is corrupt (likes to have a drink once in a while, when mood is good call his lady friend for company), you would not pray behind a corrupt man and that is what Islam tells us. Similarly being a judge (Qazi) is not a political post it is very important (being a Muslim) that a Qazi should not decide the matters that he himself indulges in. If Qazi sahib is himself a dishonest man how come he can decide the matters related to dishonesty? If Imam keeps leading the prayer by force you can’t do anything similarly if Qazi keeps passing judgments there is nothing you and I can do, but it is a matter of being morally upright.
Standards of morality vary from profession to profession. A car salesman or real estate broker might not have high moral standards but you can live with it or leave it. A car salesman cannot force you to buy a car of his choice or on his terms nor can the real estate broker force you.  But in religious matters such as Imam and Qazi highest moral standards are required. The removal of judge based on dishonesty is as impossible as Pakistan becoming a super power in next two years of PPP rule. Whereas a politician can always be tried in the court for any crime (committed or not), they don’t have any immunity (other than presidential immunity of limited time) or preferential courts. Judges on the contrary cannot be tried in the courts which are set up for lesser mortals like us. Judges have something exalted which is called the Supreme Judicial Council. I would request everyone to check to see since 1973 constitution how many times SJC has tried its own peers and thrown them out for corruption! Don’t we know the character of majority of judges and how much money they take for required decisions? It is well known fact that “why pay a lawyer when you can buy a judge” and it still holds true. If media is not telling people about higher judiciary’s corruption due to their unholy alliance it doesn’t mean corruption in the judiciary doesn’t exist.
The issue of fake degrees is all a political façade in the garb of honesty and high morals. CJ had one hundred and sixty petitions lying in his court challenging degrees of Musharraf’s parliamentarians (2002-2007). Most of the petitions filed were against MMA and PML-Q parliamentarians. We never heard a squeak from CJ or anybody else. No JI lawyers talked about those petitions, no petition loving lawyers came to the surface demanding decisions on those petitions. Musharraf with the help of SC blackmailed those parliamentarians to get LFO passed and to stay in uniform. Not even one single hearing in the matter has been recorded. Even though at the time we had very honest person working in HEC Dr. Atta ur Rehman (honest as per criteria of the media). I believe it was hard to cow him down to issue fake verifications for the degrees but nothing came out of those petitions. Currently when we are in a fragile democratic set up. My lordship Iftikhar Mohammad Chaudhry wakes up one fine morning on the wrong side of the bed and looks out the window and notices that sun has risen from the west instead of east and instantly he becomes Mr. Honest. His honesty would have been appreciated much more if previous 160 petitions related to fake degrees were disposed of first and then these new petitions should have been picked up. Mr. CJ is showing selective honesty. Mr. honest CJ should have undone his previous wrongs to tell the nation that he is a reformed man and now nation can trust him. He never publicly apologized to the nation. I dare everybody to show any record of his two year blackmailing movement in which he openly and clearly apologized to the nation for his collaboration with Musharraf. As Muslims we are a very forgiving nation but we need to ask for forgiveness and then act accordingly. His movement was to get his job back and there was nothing more to it. I refuse to accept that his “No” to Musharraf means all his previous sins can be forgiven. Two wrongs of history since 12th October, 1999 Musharraf and Iftikhar Chaudhry can’t be forgiven or their trampling of the constitution unless and until tried in the courts of law. Other than the fact that the parliamentarians lied about their qualification in 2008 elections, now trial is based on a defunct law. No prosecution took place when this law was in force but when it became defunct prosecution by CJ went into super over drive. It has already been turned down by the Hameed Dogar Supreme court. Now we are going back in time to give judgments according to what the law said at the time then won’t it be great if we visit October 12, 1999 and see who collaborated with Musharraf and who gave him permission to rule and amend constitution and which law was applicable on 11th of October, 1999 and under which constitution judges took oath to defend him? If we travel back in history and want to correct what went wrong then I think Musharraf and SC of that time including Iftikhar Chaudhry should be tried for treason and I don’t say it but law of the land says punishment for treason is death. (Remember Article 6, a favorite clause quoted by media all the time for Musharraf) Issue of fake degrees is all based on political agenda. Axis of evil couldn’t find GHQ to help remove the government in the middle of the tenure so they turned around and used ”Judiciary” (which is already upset at the government for not restoring them earlier). Also there is an urge to oblige their real master and financier of their movement , Mr. Nawaz Sharif.  LHC CJ’s political remarks to defend his master and defending a wanted criminal are testament to that. It doesn’t matter how one part of evil axis (media) is twisting the facts by saying that CJ LHC was forced into making these remarks. I ask the yellow journalist (Ansar Abbasi) that LHC CJ is a grown up man of over sixty years of age, he is not an infant.
We also need to check the fact that CJ’s son in 1996 secured 639 marks in FSc but got admission in Baluchistan Medical College even though the merit was 750. Records show that he got admission in Baluchistan Medical College on a seat reserved for foreigners for which he doesn’t fulfill the requirement. What happened with his son till he was a judge at SC and what happened after he became CJ is altogether different story how whole set of new rules were made to bring his son to FIA and how he really benefited from his father being CJ of Pakistan. How CJ required protocol and how he abused senior officers. I think his son’s degree is fake in the first place, we should visit 1996 and open a case against his son and it would be appreciated if he applies same honesty at home too.

Saying goes “charity begins at home”.

Iftikhar Mohammad Chaudhry was appointed to the Baluchistan High Court in November 1990 by the new government of IJI, a branch of ISI and led by our beloved Mian Mohammad Nawaz Sharif, as Prime Minister of Pakistan. And once again when Nawaz Sharif came back to power through the mandate given by ISI, Nawaz Sharif promoted Iftikhar Chaudhry as Chief Justice Baluchistan High Court in April 1999. It shows Iftikhar Mohammad Chaudhry has benefited the most from Nawaz and Musharraf. Old links of ISI-Nawaz(IJI)-Media-Iftikhar Chaudhry can’t be ignored. Mr. honest CJ’s court was boycotted by SCBA but on the day he was forced out of the office by his boss Musharraf, he contacted Munir Malik to represent him who had earlier refused to appear in his court, he took the case with a lot of reservation. Later on a whole lot of celebrity lawyers took control of the movement. Their aim was not the love of CJ Iftikhar Mohammad Chaudhry (Hub-e-Ali) but their actual aim was removal of Musharraf (Bughz-e-Muawiya). This movement’s star was Atizaz Ahsan a camera savvy politician of PPP ranks. All the stalwarts of lawyers movement took oath from CJ that if restored he will not revert back to his old habits and will not target democracy. But somehow those celebrity lawyers have taken a back seat and new stooges came forward as his advisors and same cronyism started from the SC. Asma Jehangir needs no introduction, who stood against every government defending Human Rights, why is she speaking against judiciary? I as an observer might not be so well informed but they were insiders of the movement and their stepping back needs to be asked. Where are Munir Malik, Atizaz Ahsan, Ali Ahmed Kurd, Tariq Mehmood and Athar Minhallah, the five shinning stars of the movement to get CJ his job back. Why are they nowhere to be found? The question about their stepping back in private is not well suited to be written here. Why are lawyers divided now? These are important questions that only time will answer.

  • Not only CJ but under his supervision whole of the Darbar e Uzma is working with selective “honesty”

  • Esteemed Jinnah Bhutto sahib, Ussalaam-u-alaikum.
    Kindly allow me to improve your first sentence because there is nothing to be compromised based on our religious teachings. Secondly, Imam is not confined to lead prayers only, because, ‘Pesh-Imam’ could be any muslim to lead any prayer, but “Imam” is much more noble, responsible and muttaqi to lead/ guide/ educate the group of muslims. Thirdly, I agree, that ‘Qazi’ should neither be biased, nor dishonest, not selective, nor inclined to like or dislike any litigant.

    Some times people malign the judiciary because they are either ignorant of law, or ignorant of facts, or ignorant of procedure and thus they are misguided by rumours. Kindly be informed that no one is above the law but there is different procedure to prosecute a common citizen, a Military-person while on duty, a Doctor while performing duty, an Advocate while performing duty and a Judge while performing duty, etc. Hence, the relevant procedure always need to be adopted at time.

    You appear to be concerned about the previous 160 petitions related to fake degrees – which according to you have not been disposed of first. If you know the details of these Petitions because the Petitioners thereof are believed to have approached you in this regard, then kindly let me share those details; enabling me to help/ guide them to avoid delay and to get accelerated disposal of their Petitions, because, neither the Judges are responsible to fix cases as per seniority, nor, the Judges prepare the daily ‘Cause List’. But, in fact, the Advocates and most of the Litigants / Petitioners know that :-

    (a) Roster-Branch is responsible to assign dates of hearing to new cases as well as to the cases adjourned for date-in-office;
    (b) It is the duty of relevant branch to forward cases to the Roster-Branch, for assigning date of hearing, as well as, to include the same in the ‘Cause List’ and to transfer the files to the relevant / respective Courts of Judges,
    (c) The delay is mostly caused either by the Petitioners or by their Advocates – who either :-
    (i) Fail to provide the requisite number of copies of Memo of Petitions / Plaints / Applications / Appeals and the Annexures thereof to the relevant branch, or.
    (ii) Fail to arrange issuance of ‘Notices’ to their opponents and to the concerned offices,
    (iii) Fail to pursue the concerned branch to submit their case to the Roster-branch, or
    (iv) Fail to submit Application for urgent hearing.

    However, in case you are really interested to expedite the said 160 Petitions, kindly Email me details of each Petition as well as the details of efforts made by them as above; enabling me to extend them my voluntary / free legal-assistance, besides, notifying the facts regarding reasons / causes of delay in each Petition, for the knowledge of general public.

    I am confident that the details of above 160 Petitions are available with you and you are also in touch with the said Petitioners, because, I am also confident that you have not malafidely attempted to disrespect, defame or slander the Judiciary with the object to lower its image in eyes of general public, and I am further confident that it is the duty of every responsible citizen (including Mr. Jinnah Bhutto) :- “ TO KEEP RESPECT AND CONFIDENCE IN JUDICAIRY ALIVE, IT IS ESSENTIAL THAT ANY WILFUL DISOBEDIENCE OF ITS ORDER, OBSTRUCTION IN ADMINISTRATION OF LAW OR DISRESPECT TO COURTS MUST BE VIEWED SERIOUSLY, WITH PIOUS OBJECT TO KEEP STREAM OF JUSTICE UNPOLLUTED, EDIFICE OF JUSTICE UNTARNISHED AND FOUNTAIN OF JUSTICE CLEAN, CLEAR AND PURE”.

    Let us also be more honest to confess that as and when any “Traitor” has imposed Martial Law in the country, the following groups / agencies do validate, support and obey the “Traitor” one after the other, but we always avoid to hold them responsible “as abettors of Traitors” and non of them has ever dis-obeyed Martial Law or had ever agitated against it :-
    —–The Corps Commanders, —– the Radio & T.V. authorities (including Print-media), —– The Chief Secretaries / Secretaries, ——The Police Department and The General Public (at large) and when the entire Nation has accepted, obeyed and authenticated the Martial Law, then lastly, the Martial Law approaches the ‘Judiciary’ for its validation.

    However, it is worth-mention, that the ‘Judiciary’ has always tried to minimize the stay of Martial Law by issuing directions to conduct elections of assemblies on a fixed date.

    “Shame” – “Shame” and “Shame” for each supporter of Traitor; especially let us hate / condemn those, who still avoid to register case under The High Treason (Punishment) Act 1973 and still love to be known as B-Team of a Traitor.

    Moreover, You are also expected to either move the present regime to refer the matter to N.A.B., or, you can file a Constitutional Petition (in person) before any High Court of Pakistan, because, the entire relevant evidence for the alleged irregularities / violations of law pertaining to the son of CJ are available with you.

    Let me request you once again, to kindly provide me details of the said 160 Petitions within 15 days, so that the Petitioners are helped and your bonafide is proved.

    Wassalaam. Your’s sincerely:- Agha Syed Atta-u-Allah Shah, Advocate & Chairman, Raah-e-Raast Trust. “Agha House” Sector 8-A, Gulshan-e-Zahoor, Karachi. Ph:0321-2168008, 0345-3334959. Email:-raaheraast@gmail.com, raaheraast@hotmail.com.

  • What Mr. Agha Atta Ullah says might be of some importance but he seems avid supporter of Judiciary. Mr. Jinnah Bhutto has not said anything that people dont know. He hasn’t maligned anybody it is clear that there are petitions which have not been heard but new petitions found the so called “cause list” so fast is just a coincidence or there is something to it. Judges are so blind and they forgot what kind of petitions are filed previously and how they protected Musharraf. And angels in judiciary are just love to listen to. Agha Sahib you have written probably the funniest statement ever that judiciary always minimized the stay of dictator.
    Ok let’s take a walk down history and ask some questions, Agha Sahib kindly stay with me as we ask history some questions.
    Question : How many martial laws have been given green signal from Judiciary?
    History : Ayub, Zia and Musharraf that will make it three times.

    Question : How many years did each of the dictators ruled.
    History : Ayub from 58 till 71(including Yahya) almost thirteen years, Zia from 77 till 88 almost eleven years, Musharraf 99 till 08 almost nine years.

    Question : Why did they rule for such a long time.
    History : Judiciary kept protecting their illegal acts that is why their rule was prolonged.

    Question : If some says judiciary has shortened the dictator’s rule.
    History : If some one says something like that he is thinking from his rear end.

    I would request history not to use foul language

    Question : Current judiciary by any reason is held responsible for Musharraf’s rule.
    Answer : Of course Judiciary’s leader Iftikhar Choudhry who is simple BA LLB ended up being Chief Justice with the kind help of Musharraf. His degree should also be verified. Iftikhar Choudhry was instrumental in all the SC decisions. He was a buffer judge between petitioner and Citizens. His sympathizers should read all the decisions that SC gave from 1999 till his dismissal.

    Question : Will you ever forgive SC and dictators.
    Answer : It will be very hard for me to forgive them as they mutilated the constitution and illegally defended illegal rule. I hold grudge against Musharraf but I can not forgive SC and especially Iftikhar Choudhry for allowing him to keep subverting constitution.

    Question : Will you forgive him he asks for forgiveness
    Answer : He should ask for forgiveness first and then I will consider it.

    Question : Dont you agree with what Agha Sahib said.
    Answer : Whatever anybody says History cannot be changed. All you can do is just twist facts and lawyers have way of twisting facts. They are good at doing that because they are paid to do so. About Agha Sahib ; what he wrote he sounds like a lawyer and involved in covering up illegal actions of judiciary.

    Question : One last question can you just ignore what ever happened and go along with what is going on.
    Answer : I am sorry you can do what ever you want to. I cannot ignore what ever has happened but their is only one thing that can happen and that is when I speak (being history) they can attach a note saying they asked for the forgiveness and have changed ways. But so far it has not happened. A word of advise to Iftikhar Choudhry’s supporters like Agha Sahib please dont hurt me anymore I am already full of these cruel jokes.

  • I have often a question resonating in my mind that if temporary endorsement can be given to dictator then you should honor the people’s choice and provide same to democratic government unless you have some ulterior motives behind not doing so. First NRO was opened to weaken the government then fake degree case was highlighted to throw PPP out from corridors of powers. Judiciary has almost succeeded in your agenda to bring down democracy or weaken it. The stone judiciary have cast will go a long way. Similarly it is like saying it was not SC judge which hung Bhutto it was Tara Masih who actually hung Bhutto, it doesnt mean that SC and Zia are not to be blamed for his murder. Chief justice of Pakistan can’t walk away from his wrong doings of past unless he apologizes to the nation. It is also pertinent to mention that if colleagues of Chief justice can make political statements he can do the same and beg for forgiveness from people of Pakistan. Judges of superior judiciary are highly politicized and there is not even iota of doubt in that.

    قارئینِ کرام ! گوشۂ ملاقات میں آپ کوخوش آمدید۔اللہ تعالیٰ کی سلامتی اور رحمتیں آپ کو اپنے سایئہ عافیت میں رکھیں ۔ سورۂ حجرات میں غیبت کرنے کو ایک انتہائی ناپسندیدہ فعل قرار دیا گیا ہے ۔ یہاں تک کہ اسے اپنے مردہ بھائی کا گوشت کھانے سے تشبیہہ دی گئی ہے ۔ غیبت کسی شخص کی غیر موجودگی میں اس کی برائی کرنے کا نام ہے ۔ وہ برائی جو اس شخص میں موجود ہو۔ اگر کسی کی غیر موجودگی میں اس کے اُن عیوب پر روشنی ڈالی جا رہی ہو جو اس میں سرے سے موجود ہی نہ ہوں تو یہ غیبت نہیں بلکہ الزام تراشی اور بہتان تراشی ہو گی، جو غیبت سے بھی بڑ ا گناہ ہے اور اس پر قانوناً سزا بھی دی جا سکتی ہے ۔ حدیث میں ہے کہ لوگوں نے دریافت کیا کہ غیبت کیا ہے ؟ فرمایا: تو اپنے مسلمان بھائی کی ایسی بات کا ذکر کرے جو اسے بری معلوم ہو۔ پوچھا گیا: اگر وہ عیب اس میں موجود ہو (تب بھی؟) فرمایا: ہاں یہی تو غیبت ہے وگرنہ تو بہتان ہو گا۔ (ابو داؤد) حضرت عائشہ نے ایک مرتبہ فرمایا کہ صفیہ تو ایسی ہیں (یعنی پست قامت) تو حضور صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم نے فرمایا: تم نے ایسی بات کہی کہ اگر سمندر کے پانی میں ملا دی جائے تو اسے بگاڑ دے ۔ (ابو داؤد) حضور فرماتے ہیں : معراج کی رات میں نے دیکھا کہ کچھ لوگوں کے ناخن تانبے کے ہیں جن سے وہ اپنے چہرے اور سینے کو نوچ رہے ہیں ۔ میں نے جبریل سے پوچھا یہ کون ہیں ؟ کہا یہ وہ ہیں جو لوگوں کا گوشت کھاتے تھے (یعنی غیبت کیا کرتے تھے ) اور ان کی عزتیں لوٹتے تھے ۔ (ابوداؤد) حضور نے دو افراد کو کسی کی برائی بیان کرتے ہوئے سنا۔ جب آپ کچھ دور آگے آ گئے تو دیکھا کہ راستے میں ایک گدھا مرا ہوا پڑ ا ہے ۔ فرمایا: فلاں اور فلاں شخص کہاں ہیں ؟ (جو ابھی برائی بیان کر رہے تھے ) وہ آئیں اور اس گدھے کا گوشت کھائیں ۔ انہوں نے کہا کہ یارسول اللہ، اللہ آپ کو بخشے ۔ یہ تو کوئی کھانے کے لائق چیز نہیں ۔ آپ نے فرمایا: ابھی جو تم نے اپنے بھائی کی بدی بیان کی تھی وہ اس سے بھی زیادہ بری چیز تھی۔ (احمد)معلوم ہوا کہ غیبت ایک انتہائی قبیح قسم کی برائی ہے اور اس کے مندرجہ ذیل لوازمات ہیں :۱) جس شخص کی برائی کی جا رہی ہو وہ اُس وقت وہاں موجود نہ ہو۔ ۲) ایسی برائی کی جائے جو واقعتا اُس شخص میں موجود ہو۔ ۳)برائی کی نوعیت ایسی ہو کہ اگر وہ شخص خود سن لے ’جس کے حوالے سے وہ بیان کی جا رہی ہو‘ تو اسے برا لگے ۔ غیبت کے لیے ان تینوں شرائط کا پایا جانا ضروری ہے ۔ مثال کے طور پر احمد اپنے بھائی سے انور کی غیر موجودگی میں کہتا ہے کہ انور انتہائی مطلب پرست انسان ہے اور وہ کبھی وقت پر مدد نہیں کرتا۔ اور اتفاق سے انور میں یہ برائی پائی بھی جاتی ہے تو یہ غیبت ہو گی۔ ہماری سوسائٹی میں غیبت کیوں اتنی عام ہے ؟ اس کی پہلی وجہ تو یہ ہے کہ ہم اپنے بھائی کی برائی اس کے منہ پر بیان کرنے کی جرأت نہیں رکھتے ۔ لہٰذا موقع کی تاک میں رہتے ہیں کہ کسی طرح اس کی غیر موجودگی میں اس کے عیوب اور خامیاں بیان کی جائیں ۔ اس کی دوسری وجہ یہ ہے کہ ہم اپنے بھائی کو دوسروں کی نظروں میں گرانا چاہتے ہیں تاکہ اپنے حسد کے جذبے کو تسکین دی جا سکے ۔ اس کی ایک اور وجہ محض زبان کے چٹخارے ہیں ۔ جس کی وجہ سے ہم بلاوجہ اپنے بھائی کو تختۂ مشق بنالیتے ہیں ۔ غیبت کی کئی دیگر نفسیاتی وجوہات بھی ہو سکتی ہیں ۔ تاہم کچھ امور ایسے بھی ہیں جن پر ان شرائط کے باوجود غیبت کا اطلاق نہیں ہوتا۔ مثال کے طور پر اگر کوئی شخص اپنی بہن کے لیے آئے ہوئے رشتے کے متعلق دریافت کرے تو اس شخص کی خصوصیات بتانا فرض ہے ۔ خواہ ایسا کرتے ہوئے اس شخص کی برائیاں ہی کیوں نہ بیان کرنی پڑ یں ۔ اسی طرح گواہی بھی غیبت میں شمار نہیں ہو سکتی۔ غیبت کب غیبت شمار ہوتی ہے اور کب نہیں ، یہ کوئی اتنا پیچیدہ مسئلہ نہیں ہے ۔ بس ذرا اپنے دل کو گواہ بنا لیجیے ۔ درست جواب مل جائے گا۔ دوسروں کی غیر موجودگی میں ان کے متعلق بات کرتے ہوئے محتاط رہیے ۔ اور اگر آپ غیبت کے عادی ہیں تو اب سے غائب لوگوں کی باتیں کرنا چھوڑ دیجیے ۔ کیوں کہ احتیاط اپنے مردہ بھائی کا گوشت کھانے سے بہتر ہے۔ جہاں رہیے اللہ کے بندوں کے لیے باعثِ آزار نہیں، باعثِ رحمت بن کر رہیے۔ اگلی ملاقات تک ، اللہ نگہبان۔
