Army in Plain Clothes to Fight Lawyers During Musharraf Trial?

By Dr. Hassan Isfahani • Apr 26th, 2013 • Category: Lead Story, Politics, Worth A Second Look • 6 Comments

Things have suddenly changed and Pervaiz Musharraf has got his confidence back. He has postponed his plans to run out of Pakistan, and that is why his mother’s statement in media in which she has asked her brave son to not to come to Dubai and she would herself come to see the commando.

What has really changed? Ahmad Raza Kasuri’s tears have softened the hearts somewhere or the insult has become too much for the most powerful institute? Or some men on the horseback cannot tolerate such treatment meted out to one of their own by the not-so-auspicious civilians? Or some foreign signals have come, or suddenly some one has come up with new scheme for the Pakistanis, or the establishment has decided to prolong the caretaker setup?

I was talking to few lawyers who fought one to one with the Musharraf supporters who appeared from nowhere during Musharraf trial. These supporters of Musharraf didn’t leave the battlefield of Kachehri Chowk in Rawalpindi and fought with their tooth and nails to defend the good name of their Syed. The lawyers told me that as soon as they saw the groups of people with Musharraf portraits, they advanced to quash them to avenge their wounds during Musharraf era, but met with surprise when the retaliation was fierce.

The lawyers were certain that those were no ordinary protesters but trained commandos. I don’t believe that because the footage on TV channels showed that the fight was even between Musharraf supporters and lawyers, and I hate to believe that our commandos didn’t win this battle against untrained lawyers. No matter how vicious and agitated, these lawyers become, they shouldn’t be a match for the iron men.

So I would like to brush away that claim by lawyers as mere rumor.

  1. Like Musharraf, I think his supporters are hardy and strong fisted too…
    so there is hardly a space for any speculation….
    As we all know Musharraf is here only to keep the truth floating on surface…and He will win..
    Although SC is doing its best to suppress him but…if we only know..No One could suppress the Truth


  2. Or, or, or, or, or! Daakter Sahab, are you naive or dumb or outright stupid? First of all, I am very pleased to see, whoever they were to give the thrashing these goons deserved, actually they got less than what they itched for and truly needed to learn a good lesson in what is appropriate behaviour for lawyers. Whether or not they are lawyers or thugs, they certainly belong to that category whose only qualification seems to be ‘jan nisari’ to the Dons sitting in the Benches of our higher judiciary. I sincerely hope that these Dons also got the message now and would be slightly careful before they also run along with their coward jan nisars.

    Agree with Mr A Khokar, President Musharraf is here for the sake of Truth and he is not running away to no where. What SC is trying to do is a shameless act of victimization, an abhorable display of personal hatred and collective act of terrrorism, this is not justice, it is plain and simple act of vedetta and must be condemned by everyone with slightest sense of fair play if not justice. Failing this would mean total loss of trust in our system of justice and rule of law, which would hardly serve anyone in Pakistan or, indeed, Pakistan itself.

  4. @ 3 if there were rulers like Musharraf sure he could have been hanged on your given list but you look me unfamiliar that why he is being penalized as per state laws .The state where he all and all ruled for 10 years and never thought of amending these laws.
    1- the Musharraf started the ‘adventure’ of Kargil war with India, and used the Pakistan Army for his ‘own personal gains’.

    2 - Musharraf is blamed for imposing martial law in the country, using National Accountability Bureau for victimizing his political opponents, killing the veteran Baloch politician Nawab Akbar Bughti and illegally arresting hundreds of people from Balochistan.

    3- former military ruler attacked the judiciary in his tenure by imposing emergency and violating the Constitution.

    4- Musharraf is answerable for handing over Pakistani people, including Dr Aafia Siddiqui, to the US ‘in return of dollars’, demanding that a commission must be constituted to a probe into the issue.This was mentioned in his book too.

    5- Musharraf was also held responsible for committing massacre in Lal Masjid ordering military operation against its occupants that left hundreds of innocent students dead and unleashed militancy and a chain of suicide bombing in the country.

    6- he and his puppet Shaukat aziz were also involved in a stock exchange scam.

    7- he was eligible for registering case against him under Article 6 of the Constitution.

    8- He is main suspect in Bhutto murder case as per written in Bhutto s last writings.
