Emergency Law in Pakistan

Recently, the lawyers of Pakistan have been demonstrating their dissatisfaction in the National Assembly and elsewhere in the country, because the military government has imposed the new Constitution in violation of the existing constitutional order. The lawyers of Pakistan have demanded the resignation of the government on the basis that they have nothing to do with the constitution amendment. They have also called for a day of strike on 4th July in Pakistan if the government does not resign on that day. The lawyers of Pakistan have the right to appeal against the constitution’s imposition through the apex court.

The lawyers of Pakistan have resorted to violence, disrupting the legitimate functioning of the government and escalating the issue to unacceptable levels. The lawyers have expressed their deep concern about the escalating situation between the Pakistan government and the opposition parties, which are demanding for an immediate restoration of the constitution and restoration of democracy in Pakistan. The lawyers of Pakistan have been trying to bring forth a resolution through the National Assembly against the present government’s move to impose Emergency Rule. The members of the house have refused to hear the speech of the opposition leader, who has been branded as a terrorist.

The premier’s government has passed a resolution to restore the constitutional order and the chief justice has issued orders to the police not to take action in cases of non-obeying of the constitution. This is the reason why the lawyers have raised a red flag. In the past, the government has not only failed to deliver on its promises but has also caused much damage to the reputation of the legal community. The recent incidents have made the general public to see how unfit the government is. The Emergency rule is considered to be very harmful to the constitutional system of Pakistan.

It is apparent from the conduct of the government and the conduct of the opposition that the ruling party is trying to suppress any public expression of discontent. The main reason behind the latest incident is the conduct of the chief justice of Pakistan, who is known as azadi, or freedom fighter. He has ordered the police to stop the procession of lawyers of Pakistan from Benazir Bhutto University to Lahore. The lawyers of Pakistan have entered the Benazir Bhutto University campus and have been blocking the passage of the lawyers. The chief justice has ordered the armed forces to help the Benazir Bhutto University authorities in maintaining law and order.

This is a serious issue, as we see the rule of the constitution being challenged in a bold manner. We saw in 2005, when Benazir Bhutto was sidelined by her son. The next elections were held in an election farce, with the entire cabinet and the legislature having their seat. There was no effective rule in place, and there were no checks and balances. This led to corruption within the court, and further entrenchment of the ruling party. Now, this is a serious problem that the government has to address, and it is up to the government to reinstate the chief justice of Pakistan.

The chief justice had gone missing, and his replacement was not confirmed. This prompted the opposition parties to launch a sit in protest, along with hundreds of lawyers who were present at the hearing. There were slogans sprayed across the hallways of the high court, and the press was turned off. The protesters were asked to leave by the police, but later staged a sit in protest outside the federal Secretariat. Finally, the Islamabad police released the protesters, but they were warned that more action would be taken if they did not leave.

The press has also been warned to leave, and all television and radio stations have gone off air. The government has declared all lawyers to be traitors if they refuse to take oath to the government. This is an obvious move, and there is no doubt that the emergency rule has been abused by the opposition. However, the judges are carrying out their duties and have every right to do so. If the opposition continues to abuse the system, and use force against the judges, Pakistan will be faced with further turmoil.

If the opposition does carry through their threats, then Pakistan will be faced with even more turmoil. It will be a complete turnaround from what we have now, where the legal community is doing its job. The government cannot deny the importance and position of the high court and as long as the opposition is in charge, the judges will carry on working. The government can easily transfer power if it wants to, but that will only happen if it believes the opposition is sincere about wanting to improve the country’s dire state. The only way for Pakistan to resolve this crisis is to let the judges do their job, and if the opposition continues to abuse the system, then the government should step in and make sure justice is restored.
