Men in Black

For Friday 16th March 2007, the first hearing of CJP reference case in Supreme Judicial Council, the preparations are full. Barb wires are on and men in blue and brown are ready to catch the black.

I was almost laughing with tears when I read a news clipping in Wednesday’s dawn, it said:

For our euphemistic law enforcement agencies it was a “catch the black” day. Policeman stood at all entries to Islamabad on the look out of “men in black”.


Police peered into private cars and public transport to spot and stop any man in black. Some policemen were in such frenzy that they went colour blind. They even stopped people wearing dark Blue coats and cleared them after they were told so, saying “hey, that’s not Black”. The ban on black coat seemed to extend to black leather jackets as well, hence men attired so were seen being denied entry into sector I-8 and beyond faizabad. Policemen searched madly for black coats on back seats and even in car boots.


When an inspector detained a person at Faizabad, Junaid Ahmad was saying “Please le me proceed to Blue area I’m No lawyer. I’m a marketing consultant in a MNC”. And he showed his employment card to prove himself. A policeman looking into Mr. Ahmad’s car shouted: “sir, his employment card must be a fake. He IS a lawyer.”


It came to my knowledge just today that Supreme Judicial Council CANNOT GIVE ANY VERDICT – just an opinion – President will then decide whether to ACCEPT OR not.

BTW I guess our dear Sadar Sahab don’t know this – since he’s saying that whatever FAISLA (verdict) will come – I’ll obey that (woh sar aankhon pay) — I’ll tell the Nation about that on TV.

Let’s pray that the hearing be peaceful. JUI, Qazi Hussain Ahmad and Lawyers have asked for a protest at Constitution Avenue tomorrow, at around Jumma’s time.

BEWARE: It’s suggested that do not wear ‘wakeeelana’ attire if you want to roam around Islamabad roads on Friday, just in case, You never know when destiny strikes.
