In the meeting the decision of the Supreme Court of Pakistan against the emergency imposed on 3rd November, 2007 by ex-military dictator Gen. Pervez Musharraf was highly appreciated rather admired. This decision was unique in the history of Pakistan which is unequivocally in line with the freedom of the Human Rights and Rule of Law. This decision will be a landmark which could stop future military intervention and not dare devil of the dictator. A wave of joy spread in whole of the country. It was a victory and a triumph after a long and protracted movement carried out by the lawyers.
As duration movement two members of this Human Rights Committee of Lahore High Court Bar Association namely Mr. Waheed Ahmad Ch. and Mr. Ch. Muhammad Shahid Iqbal had been victimized to the extent pushed behind the bars, prosecuted and tortured but they did not subdue to follow the dictator’s directions.
Very tyrannical situation had come across to the members of the bar leading in the movement resultant into ultimate success by restoration of Independent Judiciary and Rule of Law. In spite of very dreadful and formidable circumstances the struggle was not rendered to a slow down point. Due to persistent and untiring efforts and with the indomitable spirit and stamina the efforts were proved to be successful as the dictator is gone, the Rule of Law and Civil Rights have been restored, however, there are still very important rather mountainous tasks are still ahead for the complete restoration of Human Rights, the discovery of the missing persons who had been taken under the darkness of night from their homes during the pervious dictator’s regime, the provision of justice to a common man speedily, very stick law and order for the safety and security of common man, the procedure and system to be streamline for expeditious redressing of grievances of common man by the regime which could be implied as good governance for the cardinal principles to be practically implemented aimed at by the Human Rights Committee Lahore High Court Bar Association.
It is high time to propose rather request to also include our committee in the International Human Rights Forum to also contribute with devotion to aggrandize the Rule of Law and Human Rights world at large. With this inclusion of our committee we can share our experiences and also gain for the working more and more in judicious manner and with vigor and vitality. Hence, it is not out of place to request to please also invite the members of Human Rights Committee Lahore High Court Bar Association in all the international meetings to be held from time to time.
