Injustice Iftikhar might have been barking when he read the verdict against the Gillani who as prime minister represented 180 million people of Pakistan. His arrogance and sense of victory over Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) was more than visible when he read the verdict:
“Syed Yousaf Raza Gillani has become disqualified from being a Member of the Majlis-e-Shoora (Parliament) in terms of Article 63(1) (g) of the Constitution on and from the date and time of pronouncement of the judgment of this Court dated 26.04.2012 with all consequences, i.e. he has also ceased to be the Prime Minister of Pakistan with effect from the said date and the office of the Prime Minister shall be deemed to be vacant accordingly”
Have you notice something here which reminds of the Allah of Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry and his fellow accomplices in the army, judiciary, and politics: “Majlis-e-Shoora”; and the word “Parliament” appears in brackets only—as if it is an insignificant detail.
It appears that the decision was written in the ISI headquarters in Aabpara. Since it victory in the general elections in 2008, the PPP government has been facing one challenge after another mounted by the Army generals and the Nawaz League. But when all efforts failed, the trusted judiciary was summoned into action. Since they were restored by Yusuf Gillani three years ago, Injustices Iftikhar et al had been operating as Aabpara pimps. In this ‘dalali’ capacity, they did everything to destroy the PPP government, but failed. However, now they have succeeded. Abetted by their fellow criminals in the media, the ISI, and Nawaz-Imran League, the trusted Rottweilers of Aabpara have finally succeeded in destroying democracy in Pakistan.
Hazrat Ali’s words come to mind again. He said that be wary of the mischief of the person whom you have done a favor. It is true, it was Gillani who restored Injustices Iftikhar et al, and now the same ungrateful criminals have fatally stabbed him in the back.
