Suddenly I’m gripped with a feeling of foreboding.
I listened to BBC Urdu Service this evening and two things struck me.
First, Shaukat Aziz was quoted as saying “there is a provision in the Constitution to impose emergency and there are certain circumstances, explained in the Constitution, which are required to impose emergency”.
Secondly, Najam Sethi, who for reasons known only to himself, often uses the Daily Times and his Friday Times editorials to give advice to the general (some people even suggest that he has been a regular visitor to the presidency as well), told BBC that among the options open to Musharraf, in the event the Supreme Court goes against his wishes, is to declare martial law and sack the Supreme Court.
In my book this is a path to a national disaster, which might lead to a further break up of the country.
Could someone please tell me I am wrong!
