PPP leader Faisal Raza Abidi. -File Photo

Senator Faisal Raza Abidi on Sunday hurled allegation of prejudice against Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry and demanded resignations from him and other judges who were reinstated but had taken an oath under the Provisional Constitutional Order (PCO), DawnNews reported.

He said that his party would get rid of PCO judges and would present a bill in the parliament to reinstate the 110 judges who had been sacked earlier.

Addressing a press conference in Islamabad, Abidi said that the chief justice should have resigned after his son, Arsalan Iftikhar, was alleged to have indulged in financial impropriety.

He alleged that Chief Justice Iftikhar had directed the Lahore High Court (LHC) to issue a stay order in a case pertaining to the 46 billion rupees of outstanding dues on different cellular companies.

Abidi said his party would “force him out the same way he had been restored as a judge.”

He said the PPP had always respected the courts, adding that, the party's ministers had appeared before the courts and even a PPP prime minister had been sacrificed.

Abidi said “a judicial martial-law has been imposed in the country.”

The senator said his party was being targeted by the court while cases against PPP’s opponents had been granted stay orders.

The PPP senator requested the government to come forward and take steps to restore the parliament's supremacy, adding that, the parliament had the authority of enacting and amending laws.

Abidi said the parliament was supreme and above other institutions. “Parliament is an institution which forms laws and constitutions. No one has the right to criticise its laws,” he said.

He said the courts should have taken action against dictators.

He alleged that Chief Justice House Islamabad had been misused for commercial purposes of Arsalan Iftikhar.

The senator showed bank account statements of Arsalan Iftikhar and raised questions about the legitimacy of his assets. He also showed that the billing address mentioned was that of the Chief Justice House in Islamabad.

Abidi said he would soon go to London to collect evidence against Arsalan Iftikhar and would call another press conference after doing so in 10 days.

It is sad but tend to agree with him, the activism by SC is very selective. They have no regard for the security of innocent lives. They are scared from those who threatens them with dire consequences and lion for their political rivals.

This is another big mouthed ( he does not think before speeking !) PPP Jiyalaw , the other one was now deceased Ms Fawzia Wahab , when ever either of them opned their mouth either in a TV chat show or to the reporters in a press conference , they would Honor AAZ with superlatives of the highest degree and Would castigate CJP Iftikhar Chowdhury as a scum of the earth (so as to speak of their words in a superlative form ! ) . I beg your pardon , there was a Third one too so called Dr Baber Awan (now being considered a scum of the earth himself once he lost favor with AAZ & co ) .

Please PPP, avoid direct confrontation with the CJP. It is not good for the country as well as it is counter-productive for PPP as it gives the judges another reason to march on PPP. Team up with your allies in the Parliament and bring about another consitutional amendment. Use your assets, use your public support, use minds like Aitzaz Ahsan, talk through media, keep hawks like Faisal Raza in check, use doves to educate the public the mess your government is in by the hands of judges, etc. At the same time judges need to see what kind of precedent their over-activism is setting and when is the time to stop becoming personal and exercise something called judicial restraint. For sure, it is not the time for PPP to start any open CJP bashing campaign. Don't get frustrated. Fight your way. Use supremacy of Parliament as your tool.

persons like abidi are digging PPP governments grave by issuing derogatory remarks against judicatory. instead of hurling papers as proof in front of media he should present these in court. on the one hand PPP government has decided to fill appeals on the other it has unleashed likes of abidi to ridicule apex court. abdi is lion today like babar awan. he would become lamb if called or appeared before the court. he would disappear if PPP government is removed or completed its tenure. the real party leadership and workers would bear the burnt of follies of Abdi and his ilk

ILL FARES THE LAND WHERE WEALTH ACCUMULATES AND MEN DECAY (Oliver Gold Smith). The man at the top (Zardari) is well known. It is like appointing the goat the gardener.

Lagta Hai Insaaf Hazm Nahi Horaha Hai Ab. Demand for reinstating the 110 sacked judges and the language used is very insulting and therefore strong action should be taken against Faisal Abidi. Remember the prime time of the corrupts is over, justice will be done and all those found guilty of any crime will be punished. God willing law in all honesty will prevail in Pakistan. The honorable CJ has publically handed his son for an open & thorough inquiry, if his son is found guilty of any wrong doing then he will be suitably punished.

For Mr Abdi ignorance is bliss. May be he does not know that it is not the parliament but the Constitution of a country that is supreme.May be he will benefit from for some lessons in government law. He seems to be playing holier than thou card. May be he should support moves to open Swiss money laundering case and bring back money that was stolen from people of Pakistan. May be when he goes to London he can collect evidence of Bilwal's partying and explain how huge could aspire to become next President of Islamic Republic of Pakistan.Has he seen a photo where Bilwal is embracing two young women and peering through their rather big breasts with such lust that he could be dribbling. He should not resort to abuse when his party has lost argument. Do the decent thing and shut up.

Aug 05, 2012 07:39pm
Faisal Raza Abidi and company are wrong. All institutions, including the Parliament (less the first legislature which had made the Constitution), are creatures of the Constitution and must abide by its dictates. True, that the Constitution has been made by the legislature. But that does not give any right to the legislature to violate the Constitution as it exists. It may amend it (only with two-third majority). But it cannot violate it. That is the basic difference which is being deliberately confused. The crux of the matter is that no institution is above the Constitution. The Supreme Court has the authority to enforce the Constitution, which has been granted to it by the Constitution itself. Contempt of Court Act 2012 has been struck down because it was in violation of Fundamental Rights (Article 25). Article 8 of the Constitution clearly states that any law, or any custom or usage having the force of law, in so far as it is inconsistent with the Fundamental Rights enshrined in the Constitution, shall, to the extent of such inconsistency, be void, and that the State shall not make any law which takes away or abridges the rights so conferred and any law made in contravention of Fundamental Rights shall, to the extent of such contravention, be void. The language is clear and unambiguous.

Although I do not like PPP, because it has done nothing good for Pakistan and it is a party of feudal lords and elites. But considering the fact that it is the only nationwide political party of Pakistan which is being singled out and paralyzed by the judiciary, has all the rights to agitate and demonstrate its muscles against the partisan and dictatorial role of CJ and his buddy justices. Unfortunately, for the last five years, PPP has proven to be the most coward political party of Pakistan which has no shame in taking dictation from opposition and its installed judiciary, because of its faulty past and inability to lead. Having said that, if a jiala from PPP stands up against judicial thugs, is sure a sign of courage and a wake up call for other PPP leaders, and it is commendable. Actually it should have been the role of Aetezaz Ehsan, but unfortunately, he being in PPP always served the interests of right wing and his judicial masters. I strongly believe that he is part of judicial game from the day one and he knows where to take the PPP further, if not nominated as PM. I believe he has caused friction and divide in PPP, and Mr. Zardari has no choice but to dance on his tune because of the NRO sword raised on his head. Mr. Zardari must realize that dancing on the tunes of opposition is neither constructive for Pakistan nor is the solution to his or his party's problems. PPP, not the president of Pakistan must stand up against the judicial dictatorship and its partisan role, get united, get rid of hypocrite leaders within their party and convince the people of Pakistan that it has no choice but to cut the iron with the iron. Although mob politics is not the right way of achieving democratic goals, but Pakistan does not understand the democratic/civil language, it is addicted to exploitation and violence. If the right wing extremists and their allies do not recognize the democratic language and keep destroying Pakistan and its institutions through mob politics, it is time to stop and fix them with the same tools they use. In my opinion PPP and its coalition should come to a collective but firm decision, and demonstrate their muscles in order to cut the judicial/right wing crap which is not only destroying our institutions but also facilitating and paving ways for new thugs to rise and take control of Pakistan. ECP, NAB and such other companies are in full command and control of current judiciary to serve the interests of right wing parties and especially newer version of in coming messiah. That is why "you scratch my back and I scratch yours" politics is in full practice in the name of independence of judiciary. A judiciary which has the power to send the democratically elected government home, trash the parliament, choose its own justices, dictate the subordinate courts/institutions and not accountable for its actions, practices and corruption, is nothing but a conspiracy against Pakistan.

If I remember correctly , Mr. Faisal Raza Abidi is the same person who uses the advertisers bill boards in karachi ( of course witout any payment) to express his religious devotion to Hazrat IMAM HUSSAIN ( A.S) during the month of MOHARRAM. Is'nt that a case of misuse of political power. If C.J is supposed to resign on allegations of financial impropriety of his son, then Mr. Abidi should ask his President to resign- the cahrges are directly against him. Why does'nt Mr. Abidi show us the bank accounts of Mr. President and the sons of Mr. Gilani.

I have but to say that he is right. Since these parliamentarians are 'elected representatives' of people, so they are above 'law'. It gives them a license to do whatever they want, and say whatever pleases them. Law should be only for the people, the 'awam'. Maybe two versions of laws should be made, one for parliamentarians, since they are supreme and law should only favor them in their deeds; and one for the poor people.

Despite so much bloodshed he is not panishing any terrorist rather he acquits them for one reason or an other to enforce their agenda? Why he is so selective about the speedy trials of some shosen cases? I agree, he has done a few good things also, but he needs to clarify the above concerns.

Fully agree with Faisal Abidi and @Syed Zafar...It's about this CJ be held accountable for all his misdeeds, violations of Constitution and rule of law, unlawful dismissal of elected PM , corruption of his son , etc, etc..At the least Choudhary Sabeb should resign immediately.

I Hate PPP PMLn MQM and the all the others included, leaving out PTI as we have not tested them once. I also keep CJ in the same first list. Like any self respecting with hgh morals he should have stood aside when the case of his Zigg Zagg Son came out, it had been known for quite sometime how he had been moved around by his father earlier in his career.

I am 100% agreed with Abidi and solute his courage. CJ is absolutely wrong and currept and he has no respect to the mandate of people of Pakistan. CJ is a thankless person he must be thrown out of his office as soon as possible.

Ifkihar Chaudry you sent one PM to home and now creating problems for the new PM and the Parliment. Enough is enough. You should resign immediately. President Zardari should dismissed CJ and prosecute him for high treason
