He came, he “Rallied”, He left.


“LAHORE, May 5: Mass arrests, road blockades and baton-charges and teargas shelling by police failed to stop lawyers, political activists and the general public from welcoming Chief Justice Iftikhar Mohammad Chaudhry in various cities during his journey in a motorcade to Lahore from Islamabad on Saturday at the invitation of the Lahore High Court Bar Association.”
“The response was unprecedented considering that a large police force had been deployed on the GT Road and link roads. They had erected barricades at various points. There were reports of police demolishing opposition camps and blocking convoys of lawyers and political workers in different cities who either wanted to come to the GT Road or the venue of the LHCBA reception in Lahore.”
“Speaking to the Gujrat Bar briefly, Chief Justice Iftikhar asked the lawyers to remain united for the rule of law in the country.
“When you have taken it upon yourself to ensure the supremacy of the Constitution and rule of law in the country, then you should remain steadfast to fulfil this responsibility,” he told the gathering.
Earlier, the CJ’s motorcade left Islamabad for Lahore at 8am.”

I have categorised this as an Event rather than Politics because it does not have to be politics. We as a nation try to live what we see in movies. Film making is always converting real life to larger than itself in order to make an impact. Whatever happens, violence is the first step towards our display of reaction whether it’s positive or negative. We need to ponder over our actions and reactions maturely. Peaceful protests or support is unheard of in our country which is shameful.
