Journey of Supreme CourtBy Dawar Naqvi • Oct 22nd, 2012 • Category: Lead Story, Politics, Worth A Second Look • 4 Comments
It is said that power corrupts, but actually it’s truer that power attracts the corruptible. The sane are usually attracted by truth.
The Supreme Court in its short order ruled that there was ample evidence to suggest that the 1990 election was rigged and that a political cell maintained by the then president Ghulam Ishaq Khan supported the formation of the IJI to stop a victory of the PPP. The ruling said Ghulam Ishaq Khan, Baig and Durrani violated the Constitution.
It shows some justice for what’s been done to all three corrupts.
But what about politicians who were financed by Inter-Services Intelligence in the 1990 election by dishing out Rs 140 million to create the Islamic Jamhoori Ittehad (IJI) and stop PPP from coming to power.
We want the same thing for them. They’re just as guilty as them.
One of the main beneficial of this whole episode was Nawaz Sharif. First time Nawaz Sharif became Prime minister of Pakistan.
I humbly request chief justice to investigate all decisions made by Nawaz government in his 1990 tenure.
In 1990 the government of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif passed a resolution in assembly to launch a military operation in Karachi to target 72 ‘big fishes’. The federal government gave the reasoning behind this operation, known as “Operation Clean-up”, as the government’s attempt to end terrorism in Karachi and to seize unauthorized arms. Operation Clean-Up, which ostensibly sought to eliminate all terrorists irrespective of their political affiliation, began in June 1992. But MQM was the target of the Pakistan Army’s Operation Clean-up. Political violence erupted while MQM organized protests and strikes.
The period is regarded as the bloodiest period in Karachi’s history, with thousands killed or gone missing. Although 18 years have passed since the alleged arrest or disappearance of MQM workers, families of the missing people are still hopeful after registering the cases in the Supreme Court of Pakistan
The resulting lawlessness prevailed in the largest metropolitan city of Pakistan, which led to the country’s President dissolving the National Assembly.
Nawaz Sharif should be impeached for launching the illegal army operation and for misguiding the Army for personal and political motives.
I humbly request Chief Election commissioner to disqualify all political leaders who accepted 140 million to create the Islamic Jamhoori Ittehad (IJI). Supreme Court should issue summon for former IJI leaders
