Note by Suleman Akhtar:
Malik Ishaq, prominent figure of Sipah-e-Sahaba Pakistan (SSP) (also known as Lashkar-e-Jhangvi (LeJ) or Ahl-e-Sunnat-Wal-Jamaat) was today set free by the Supreme Court of Pakistan.
The head of Sipah-e-Sihaba Pakistan, Maulana Ahmed Ludhianvi, received him outside Lahore Kot-Lakhpat Jail in Lahore amidst jubilation and red roses. Apparently the deal to get Malik Ishaq released was brokered by Police Officer Mushtaq Sukhera, ISI official, Rana Sanaullah and Maulana Tahir Ashrafi Deobandi. Same LeJ who have claimed responsibility for taking more than 800 lives in Quetta since 2004 are about to unleash yet another bastard to Hazara Shias in Quetta (or possibly Saraiki Shias in D.I.Khan or Toori Shias in Parachinar) and the stage is ready for blood, flesh and dust act.

Note by Maula Bux Thadani:
Unfortunately, an Ostrich mentality is not going to get us out of this mess. Today a terrorist like Malik Ishaq is freed by the Supreme Court of Pakistan after being charged in the murder of scores of Shia Muslims and other Pakistanis as well as attacks on the Sri Lankan cricket team. His supporters boast of such killings. This is what a local report said about him:
Thirteen years ago, Fida Hussain Ghalvi and three other witnesses boldly testified against Lashkar-e-Jhangvi’s top hitman Malik Ishaq for the killing of 12 members of their family. They didn’t know that their search for justice would lead them nowhere, the ordeal had just begun…”
If Malik Ishaq had been killed by a drone, the mainstream media and the Ghairat brigade would be jumping up and down, and screaming and frothing about “sovereignty” and “honour”. They and their intellectually and morally bankrupt cohorts and guests would blackmail us as to how this killing would lead to greater radicalization without a care for the victims of terrorism being butchered daily in Pakistan.
When we have such blatant double standards is it any wonder?? When our Supreme Court releases the Malik Ishaq’s and the Hafiz Saeeds: assets for some folks and existential threats for scores of innocent Pakistanis on the basis of “lack of evidence”, do we wonder why the world treats us with such skepticism!
The same Judiciary also allows the likes of Maulana Aziz, Maulana Ludhainvi, Masood Azhar and Qari Saifullah Akhtar to freely roam the land and spread hatred and fear and plan violence, not to mention the late (?) Illyas Kashmiri.
Of course, this “lack of evidence” is not an issue when selectively going after some politicians in the NICL, Hajj and NRO case, where those being charged are directed to produce evidence against themselves! With such blatant double standards, why do you wonder why? There were scores of murder cases lodged against Malik Ishaq. However, our “independent” Judiciary could not find him guilty on even ONE of these cases inspite of eye witness testimony made at great personal risk by the victim’s family! Travesty is too mild a word to describe the disgraceful conduct of our Judiciary! If Malik Ishaq had been a Pakistan People’s Party MNA or minister, he would have been found guilty within days. It was Malik Ishaq’s good luck that he was an ISI-backed Jihadi butcher of Pakistan’s endangered Shia muslim communities.
The fact that the world does not trust Pakistan on the Taliban is largely due to the fact that the media has failed in informing the public. After every terrorist attack, which until recently were proudly claimed by the TTP and their Jihadi buddies from LeJ and other such groups, the media deliberately played dumb and mislead the public with wild conspiracy theories that started with RAW, went on to Mossad and ended with Blackwater.
Dear Pakistani fake liberals (Supreme Court apologists), lets not be coy about this, ok?
