Pakistan’s future hanging in balance

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

 

The difficult political scenario of Pakistan took yet another turn with the Pakistan’s Supreme Court (SC) issuing a contempt notice to the Pak. Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani. Now it seems difficult for the Pak. PM to continue on his post. It also seems difficult for the democracy to be retained in the country and once again the massive turning point of democracy surviving in Pakistan or military rule striking back remains to be unfolded

Pakistan SC’s this decision may make their PM disqualified for his post and he may have to leave it. But in the evening one positive thing happen, Pakistan’s parliament voted in favour of the government and decided in favour of the democracy.

 

Pak. SC has issued notice to Mr. Gilani to be present in the court on Thursday. These orders are mainly issued because of his failure to implement the court’s order of money laundering case against Mr. Zardari, the President of Pakistan. The seven member bench wants to ask Mr. Gilani why he hasn’t obeyed the court orders so far.


After SC’s this decision, Pak PM offered his party and coalition members his resignation but in a meeting, all of them decided not to accept his resignation and advised him to appear in front of the court before deciding anything.


As there are many corruption cases against both the Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani and President Zardari, it seems difficult that the Pak. Government will survive for long time. By the end of this month, the former Pak. Military Head, Parvez Musharraf is also planning to return to Pakistan and present Military Head General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani was also posted on this post by Musharraf. The Memogate scandal also added fire to the issue. In the Memogate case, Pak. Government is asking US help to save them, as it fears of another military coup in Pakistan. All this may lead to a strong support to the military ruler to take over the government.


It seems that different institutions in Pakistan are going against the Pakistan government including the Supreme Court and the military and they are losing their confidence in the government. But it will not be good for Pakistan if military rule strikes back. We should hope that Pakistan’s SC will come out with an option in which Pakistan’s democracy survives and may the corrupt leaders be also removed in that process.
