Unique and wise. What legal recourse he will have if some body refuses to pay him back his loan. Going to Dogar court is certainly not going to help. He or any other PCO judge for that matter may write off his loan under the NRO just like that. Oops I hope I have not commited contempt of court although I repudiate the actions of all these PCO judges.

It is incumbent on each one of us to do our bit for the restoration of judiciary exactlty as it existed on 2 Nov 07. The guy shown above is doing his bit.
Recently during a lunch I was sitting next to the wife of a foreign ambassador. The subject of terrorism cropped up followed by the subject of the restoration of judiciary. She very much appreciated my views about the war on terror and how to combat extremists. About rule of law she asked me what will I do if the judiciary is not restored. I told her in that case I will join the extremist and start supporting imposition of shariah law in the country. She asked me with a broad smile on her face if I really meant that. I said: Yes, I will rather have rule of 1400 year old law than no rule of law in Pakistan. Her smile which had appeared gradually disappeared suddenly. She said with a worried look on her face: This certainly is food for thought for me.
kabirdas Even after days of strikes and "meetings", the judiciary is on stand-still :/
shez And it helped?

Asmamirza, Ghee kabhee seedhi ungly say nahi nikalta. Wait a bit and see what happens on 10 June. The matter will not end on 10 June either. However, the long march on 10 June will clearly show to the world what do the people of Pakistan want and that this time they will not rest till they achieve their objective. Please note Mush is not the difficult hurdle in the restorstion of judiciary. The much more difficult hurdle to cross is Zardari. Obviously he is concerned about the future of NRO if the judiciary is restored. He is not the type to let go of his illgotten wealth easily. He has already shown his resolve to keep his illgotten wealth by staying steadfastly behind bars for about 11 years for it.
Zardari by not agreeing to restore the judges is risking the future of party, PPP. This is likely to lead to a revolt in the party against the leadrship of Zardari. The part may get divided and Zardari may lose his hold over the party. The new leadership of PPP may then restore the judges as per the wishes of people. This is only way that I see the judges will be restored.
There is another way also and that is some kind of fool proof guarantee to Zardari that if the judges are restored they will not take up the issue of NRO. However, if this kind of under the table deal is indeed struck the judges will be restored but the principal on the basis of which this struggle is going on will be be compromised.
So, we still have to go a long way to establish rule of law in Pakistan. It will require rempval of Zardari from the leadership of PPP which is not going to be all that easy.
