SC rules Musharraf emergency as an act of treason


    Ball is back in parliament's court to advice a punishment for high treason ( or previous parliaments have already done that be declaring capital punishment for high treason??)

    Lets see what happens now. PPP never showed any intention to hang Musharraf. N-League on the other hand wanted to hang Musharraf but now we know they were playing with awami emotions and being munafiq which they are. Most probably Musharraf will be convicted of whatever, his warrants will be release and for the rest of his life Musharraf wont be able to return.

    Most probably N-League will try to join the bandwagon and will try to shamelessly take credit and our jaabaati awam will buy into this N-league BS.

    It will also be interesting to see who is considered "aiding or abetting" the act of high treason.

    This is article 6

    6. High treason.

    (1) Any person who abrogates or attempts or conspires to abrogate, subverts or attempts or conspires to subvert the Constitution by use of force or show of force or by other unconstitutional means shall be guilty of high treason.

    (2) Any person aiding or abetting the acts mentioned in clause (1) shall likewise be guilty of high treason.

    (3) [Majlis-e-Shoora (Parliament)] shall by law provide for the punishment of persons found guilty of high treason.

  • Good luck with punishing Musharraf.

    The aiding and abetting in article 6 applies to 90% of the politicians including Ameer-ul-Munafiqeen.

  • Only a credible person, institution and authority should demand and perform the execution of punishment according to Law.

    Punishing Musharraf for a 'crime' by the same type of 'criminals' would be illogical and just a cruel action.

  • yeh bhi bachay nahi hein waisay. baray chalaak hein. The ruling is about the Nov 3rd emergency rule. It is not about Musharraf's coup against NS in 2003. If they take up Musharraf's coup in 2003 then Ch. Iftikhar will be the first one to get conviction because he was part of the judicial bench that not only legalised the coup but also allowed Musharraf to make ammendments in the constitution.

    However, Nov 3rd emergency rule was different and probably judiciary and parliament (also political parties) can not be held responsible. They will probably try to round up Musharra'f legal advisors peerzada and others.

  • Assalam-o-Alaikum-Warahmat-ULLAH ALL,

    I like the old days, when KINGS used to rule. There was little or NO deception back then. A bad guy was a bad guy. A good guy was a good guy.

    Decisions at the level of the state, were decided on much much faster, without any deceptions.

    People knew what to expect. It was easy for people to know how they should react, what they should do to improve their situation.

    Today people endlessly debate issues, which need no discussion, for which LAWS are already present, due punishments are already prescribed.

    Today people LOVE!!!! to endlessly confuse simple matters, make them complex for no reason what-so-ever, other than their own petty 'mafaad' (in urdu).

    Today, MOST of the people of this nation, operate, live their lives like a chicken, scared of EVERYTHING they encounter. Today, MOST of the people are confused, live ALL their days as a confused bafoon.

    It disgusts!!!! me when I look at people's condition today

  • But there was one problem

    A bad king was not bad and a good king was not good.

  • Haris Khan

    And that in a Kingdom, you could not criticize or write against the King as you can do it freely in a democracy.

  • Bro Democracy is an illusion of freedom.

    51% rules the 49%

    dont see any freedom of expression in any part of the world.

    Except the Hyde park probably.

  • So are the other systems of Governments.

  • sorry didnt get your last post.

  • "Democracy is an illusion of freedom."

    Still all of the Religious-Political Parties in Pakistan, very eagerly participate in the Election process.

    JI and JUI always demanded for Elections, a requirement of Democracy.

  • Yes, they are part of and supporter of democracy though they twist it and present it as Islamic.

  • JI, JUI and many other religious parties in Pakistan comprise of learned Islamic scholars. When they support democracy, definitely they do so because it is not against fundamental rules and spirit of Islam.

    However, the people of Pakistan have yet to see as to how all the political parties react to the judgment of Supreme Court.

  • Good to see that post, then also accept other stances from them as learned Islamic Scholars.

    Just yesterday you were bashing these learned scholars with Aimal Khan -forgot already?

  • You cannot agree or disagree with all the thinking or actions of a person or a party. There are always things with which you may agree and things with which you do not agree.

    For example, JI and JUI are both Islamic political parties but within them there are agreements and disagreements on certain points.

  • Love the way you put it... :-)

    PPP was never interested in hanging Musharraf. Why would they be?? This was part of the deal they struck.

    He wasn't to be hanged but given a safe exit with 'guard of honor' that he got!

    Obaid bhai ki saadgi par fida jaoon. lol

  • SC ruling has nothing to bring any change in the scheme of things and the old understanding that a military chief is untouchable.

    i wonder ...USA is still protecting him .

    though ,USA has a tradition to kill their friends after using them ...Shah e Iran,Anwer Sadaat,ZAB and BB .

    they have used Musharraf too .

    but STILL protecting him .

    that is fishy.

    that means they haven't used him ,as his fullest capabilities .

    and a ROLE USA still see in the retired dictator .

  • I wish IMC also order issuance of detailed judgement of July 2007 SC verdict which cleaned and re-instated IMC as CJ of SC !!!!
