Musharraf lambasted by ex-judge
By Syed Shoaib Hasan
BBC News, Islamabadi

The deposed chief justice of Pakistan has described President Musharraf as an "extremist general" for sacking him and 60 other top judges.

Iftikhar Mohammed Chaudhry also criticised the president for keeping him and his family under house arrest for the last three months.

Mr Chaudhry had a reputation for taking a firm line on government misdemeanours and human rights abuses.

He was sacked when President Musharraf imposed emergency rule in November.

His dismissal came as the court was preparing to rule on the validity of President Musharraf's re-election.

Earlier he had gained a reputation for taking up investigations into the highly sensitive issue of the disappearance of political activists allegedly detained illegally by the security forces.

A spokesman for the president said that he could not comment on Mr Chaudhry's complaints, which have been delivered to diplomatic missions of the US, the European Union, Britain and France.

'Corrupt and inept'

"What the general has done has serious implications for Pakistan and the world," Mr Chaudhry said in a statement.

"Some western governments are emphasising the unfolding of the democratic process in Pakistan. That is welcome, if it is fair.

"But how can there be democracy if there is no independent judiciary?"

The former chief justice said that his wife and three children - one of them a special needs child - were not allowed even to go onto the front lawn of their Islamabad home, because it was occupied by police.

"Barbed-wire barricades surround the residence and all phone lines are cut," he said in the seven-page statement, which was made public by lawyers who support him at a press conference in Islamabad.

Mr Chaudhry also complained that comments made by President Musharraf during a recent tour of Europe that he was "corrupt and inept" were slanderous.

"Is there a precedent in history, all history, of 60 judges including three chief justices being dismissed and arrested at the whim of one man?" he asked.

He described his treatment at the hands of President Musharraf as an "incredible outrage" committed by an "extremist general" who is supported by the West.

Dear sister
It appears that in your emotionalism, you have written this reply under the incorrect article. Anyway, I shall try to address your concerns.

First of all; I think we have had enough of this Bibi Shaheed; icon of democracy who has passed on the buck of leadership in the truest spirit of democracy through a will to her husband and son and whose party workers looted, plundered & destroyed national institutions and infrastructure on her sad death.

Yes I fully agree about the senseless deaths of those nameless people whom she took along with her (you are forgetting the another 150 that sadly died in karachi).

you know however hushed up a matter is, it somehow always leaks out. isn't it? be it 10 years later be it 20 years later. But the truth does come out sooner or later. However, we have never had a single head of intelligence agency, worker or foot soldier ever own up to the call of his conscience on the issue of these bomb blasts and target killings, allegedly carried out by agencies. Remember that intelligence officer who had released tapes of Justice (retd) Abdul Qayyum's conversation who was negotiating diplomatic passports for himself and his family in return for convicting Benazir? The gentleman had woken up to the call of conscience, had resigned from his job, had declared that he is not looking for any favors from any political party....so there has to be at least one person to prove these baseless claims. Yes I agree that those at the top, regardless of party, organization, or religion are invariably corrupt to the limit that they do not even recognize misappropriations of a few lakhs as corruptions....or could even be guilty of nepotism but no one can order or carry out such senseless attacks except people from across the border. Ever wonder why the first Indian consulate was setup in Kandhar? (Close to Quetta). Ever wondered on the news of Indian engineers being killed in Afghanistan? What are they doing there? We being Muslims would never go for projects there. may be our Pushto speaking brethern would dare a quick trip but that's about it. so what are Indian engineers doing there?..food for thought??????

I think mr;earthman wrote in detail .there is a lot to believe but u ,mr , nrqazi just afraid of facing the truth we all know what the agencies do in our country just to show their loyalty with the present government .the workers of the agencies can change their religion for the current officers.As for as mush concerned just watch his words his promises and his actions and same qualities of his gang members u will well understand the whole drama.And one more thing "Nobody can finish the sin just with hiding it"if something is happening u should not hide it Not only Bibi Shaheed was important the other thirty poor people were more important because there is nobody left to look after their families. If mush had hatered and fears from Bibi shaheed as he said himself he should have acted like his Guroo zia.we should think why murree road was washed off ,why the govt issued the satement about Mehsood's casset and other false statements afterwords.Bhai try to face the realities.Mirror shows what is before it. shagufta
