Wise Words of Ikram Sehgal

Adherence to principles cannot be selective about favourites; they require that the superior judiciary who refused to take oath on 30 Jan 2000 under PCO-1 (1999) be restored along with those of the superior judiciary affected by PCO-2. One would prefer going back to the CJ Sajjad Ali Shah period but maybe it could open a legal Pandora's Box, why not at least restore the 7 heroes of the superior judiciary in existence before PCO-1? The judges who took oath under PCO-1 (including CJ Iftikhar Mohammad Chaudhry) are legally and morally no different from those who took oath under PCO-2.

There is a difference dear, in the first PCO people were celebrating and distributing sweets while now people are more understandign and resisting the opressor. So it makes more sense now to go for the extreme step than in 99 when the environment was not this conducive.
Judges who didnt take oath under PCO1 are far more respectable because it was only their action that gave common men the very idea of independent judiacry.
Ikram Sehgal and others with similar thoughts do not seen to have their own independent opinion.
