Deadline: Thaali Ka Baigun

The Billionaire Twins are again at it. You must have learned by now that there is yet another deadline for the restoration of judges.

Yeh deadline na hui thaali ka baigun ho gaee - kaheen tikti hee nahi;)

You must have heard the old adage: do not put all your eggs in one basket.

Yet for the past year, or so it seems, this nation of 160-170 million is being held hostage to restoring Iftikhar Chaudhry to the office he was forcibly removed from. I wish Mr Chaudhry long life and good health. For a moment, suppose he meets with an accident and is unable to perform his duties as a Chief Justice.

What is more relevant and important for the nation? Restoration of a judiciary with guarantees for its independence or the same with Iftikhar Chaudhry as a Chief?

An independent and functioning judiciary is far more relevant and important or the nation than any individual.

Why should the focus on one individual be used by vested interests to fool the nation. This deliberate distraction has already caused many deaths.
