Better late than never…

They say that justice delayed is justice denied.

The Chief justice has been reinstated.

People all over Pakistan are celebrating, and I had a sigh of relief as well keeping in mind that I feared loads of bloodshed today.

But -albeit this being a success for the people of Pakistan in getting their voice turned to practical results – the question still remains that like it’s not advisable to keep all eggs in a basket – is expecting so much from a single person an intelligent expectation?

When will we place into action the processes that will streamline justice and that will let us have the leadership that is for the people, by the people and of the people instead of “far the people, buy the people and off the people”!

God bless Pakistan!

    Hey! @kabirdas Congrats!

    It so happened that your dharna was not even needed, bit of anti climax. Now the test of your Thomas Moore theory begins…in the meantime rejoice, as i said earlier, may I be proven wrong.

    There shouldnt be any extra ordinary expectations from Iftikhar He presides over an Applet body and guards the constitution and thats all. How vital will be the already battered constitution in the future? thats another question.

    in this case the i think the previous government was much more successful in controlling the protesters……one thing i don’t understand is that if these leaders were so committed to restore the deposed judges after taking charge of the new Government, why did they wait for the people to show their might????
