Since when are our serving judges supposed to be treated as media celebrities? Why is Pakistan’s compromised media treating Qazi Faez as some kind of celebrity.
Isn’t Qazi the same qazi who was the establishment’s handmaiden in the Memogate sham which lead to the judicial coup against Prime minister Gillani.
Qazi’s pro-Taliban, corrupt and compromised mentor is Iftikhar Chaudhry; the darling of Pakistan’s commercial liberals and boutique leftists. Judges are supposed to stick to judgements, not pretend that they are politicians.
The state of our courts and the growing number of cases that are undecided is a scathing indictment of celebrity wannabe judges. Regardless of whether these Establishment judges support PML N or PTI, their behavior is reprehensible. We have learnt nothing from the pathetic and shambolic behavior of PCO Chaudhry.
Back then, there was a long line of courtiers for Chaudhry including but not limited to Babar Sattar, Aitzaz Ahsan, Salman Akram Raja etc. These sycophants used to justify Iftikhar’s massive corruption and horrendous support for terrorism. Aitzaz lost most of his respect within PPP for supporting Iftikhar Chaudhry.
PCO Chaudhry derailed judicial reforms, attacked legislation and parliament, supported and free LeJ terrorists and gave a clean chit to Nawaz Sharif’s corruption. PCO Chaudhry was part of a group of senior judges who not only justified General Musharaf’s coup; they also gave him carte Blanche to mangle the constitution.
As the Chief Justice, Chaudhry lead a dirty coup against the democratically elected Prime Minister, Yusuf Raza Gillani. Just like he supported PCO Chaudhry, the publicly clownish buffoon Ali Ahmed Kurd is also supporting Qazi Faez.
If the establishment really wants to “elevate” Qazi Faez as the next “savior”, can they at least get a better mascot than Kurd.
