UK Lawyers Condemn invitation to Army Rule in Pakistan
Association of Pakistani Lawyers a team of Pakistani origin lawyers, Solicitors, Barristers, Judges in UK jointly have taken a serious note of the frivolous statement of an overseas British national politician of Pakistan inviting patriotic generals of Pakistan to hold accountability of politicians through military rule, APL has condemned these unlawful, ultra constitutional invitations and declared it a conspiracy against public rule and termed it a ‘mind set’ against the very basis on which Pakistan was built by Quaid e Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah, the founder of Pakistan. Military rule will wipe out debt ridden Pakistan’s chances to ever stand on its feet in community of nations. Pakistan’s progress is hidden in strengthening one man one vote rule, democracy, rule of law, justice and free media, not in martial laws.  
APL observed, that the Nexus of our judges with Generals in Pakistan in the past has hindered democratic flow and process, where politicians have not left good governance or worth remembering legacy and the struggle of masses was and must be in future for strengthening the institutions remaining in civil structure, as people must keep in mind that worst piece of legislation (NRO) was arbitrarily introduced by a retiring General who came on October 99 to rid Pakistan from Corruption and corrupt leaders. If system is strong enough and is allowed to run at its full capacity with free media and judiciary as monitors, it will automatically start chunking out leadership with brilliance as is the case in the West, in particular UK, United States or even in India.
Having said that, APL observed that a necessary strategy in Pakistan to re-establish control over corruption ridden institutions is a need of the hour but that can be achieved without implementing unlawful actions and or extra ordinary measures remaining in civil form of the Govt. If the robust and reliable system is introduced by parliament which enforces law where poor public are living without sugar, electricity, gas, and where millions are on street due to heavy floods, it will generate less complaints or it will ease their pain of suffering(s) if a few thousand guilty corrupt are held to an account by a court of law as a starter. That’s the least the Govt can do to ensure public confidence on the system of governance. People can live in poverty, but living is difficult if the elite continues unchecked robbery from public purse. Public perception is that Pakistani politics is but a means to achieve greater influence, and to plunder more wealth and on the whole society collectively need to change that public perception and Politics on a cup of tea is the only way forward, not in palaces, APL observed.
APL further reminded that Long term military dictatorships, shorter civilian rules, where accountability of politicians takes place on the name of corruption with the nexus of judges with civil & military establishment, remained a destiny of Pakistan. Thanks to our rulers as this notion is well supported by their inefficiencies.  People came whenever the true leadership called. They came in 1947 on Quaid’s call. They came for Bhuttoo senior. They came for Be Nazir when she landed at Lahore from exile. In near history they came for Chief Justice when he said ‘no’ to Gen. Musharraf. They again came on 18 Feb on joint call of political parties and rejected the dictator. Finally they came on the call of Sharif’s when Zardari was adamant that justice is no more desired under Iftikhar Chowdhary. On 16 March 08, they came like a flood and made an impression, so we can never under estimate the people’s power, and APL observed that one man one vote must remain the solvent way to decide who to govern Pakistan if it wishes to prosper, and retain democracy, rule of law and justice in the society, said APL chair.
