Letter from the Daughter of CJ Iftikhar Mohammed Chaudhry

“I am a proud child

This letter is for all the Judges who refused to take oath under PCO and who happen to be my uncles as well. I had never thought that one day I will have to convey my message to you people like this, through this mode but we know things are not smooth as they had been and it is one of our testing times.

This might be one of the crucial times we are facing but we should be proud that Allah chose us to sacrifice for this country. Yes it is indeed a sacrifice which we have to bequeath, not for ourselves but for this country. Ever since I opened my eyes I have seen my father affiliated with judiciary and now it is like a part of our lives. Our life is like a tree and judiciary is one of its branch. We have grown up with this branch and we cannot let anybody slice it. If we will not protect it then who else?

We may not be allowed to attend our schools or universities, we may have got our mobile phones blocked, we may not be allowed to meet anyone or go out, we may be kept in our homes like prisoners, we might be treated like militants or terrorists but WE DO NOT CARE, because it’s a time of sacrifice and we have to do it.

We are proud to have elders like you who have made us proud. You people have made our lives, not only for us but for our next generations as well. We will feel proud to tell our youngsters that our elders did not succumb to any kind of pressure no matter how hard things were around them. We will always walk with our heads high and our hearts filled with pride. Thank you so much for giving this immortal gift to us.

I hope all of you are in best of your health and would read this letter. Love you all.

Yours Pinky
(Palwasha Iftikhar Chaudhry)

    The government was not at fault. For any misconduct of the judges, there is A Supreme Judicial Council in place.
    But in Chaudhry Iftikhar’s time, the Supreme Court itself behaved unlawfully, by not taking up his case to be decided through the SJC. This way the judges put a curtain on their Chief’s misdemeanors.

    Now, all should know why the judges had to come through the PCO. The honest ones did that. The corrupt ones who must have had the same theft stories decided to escape to save their skins.

    Chaudhry Iftikhar and judges in his gang after conspiring with politicians who were out of government like Nawaz Sharif but before acting on their heinous plan of turning everything topsy-turvy to dethrone the sitting government, had effectively brainwashed the lawyer community, especially initially the like-minded lawyers of the bar. The whole game looked so dicy and devious, as who knows, what corruption such friendships of judges and lawyers can put into effect. Well, like letting some hardcore criminals walk away free, after accepting sweeteners from them.

    Chaudhry Iftikhar type of judges are anyway not the right people for the job they were holding, which demands a higher calibre, not of the challenging tough guys, behaving like street ruffians. But this is Pakistan. The similar ruffians can even reemploy them. Who knows?

    One Khalid Jamil up here on the 21st of Feb has asked the Ex Suo Moto Chief Iftikhar’s daughter that how come her father was born in Punjab but carries a domicile of Baluchistan. He has furthered queried if this is not illegal?

    My answer to him is that, knowing the Ex CJ’s wheeling-dealing brain, he must have got even his domicile to derive some benefit or the other for himself. He might have thought he will get in the service quick, probably on quota basis, if it is from Baluchistan. With him, anything is possible.

    I wish to have the mother’s name of Justice Ifthikhar M. Chaudhry for drawing horoscope of Justice Sahib.

  • syed sajid mahmood |

    I am really amazed by the few criticism above on our beloved CJP. I can only term them ignorant or innocent.
    specially Ms. Fakhira and “A Pakistani”

    The people like Justice Saeed-uz-Zaman Siddiqui, Justice Fakhar-uddin G. Ibrahim, Mr. Justice Nasir Aslam Zahid, Mr. Justice Wajeehuddin Ahmed, whose credibility is beyond doubts, are in favour of the restoration of Honourable Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry and deposed judges. Dont believe what an ordinary pakistani like me thinks……….BUT DO BELIEVE that what our hon. retd. judges have been saying for so long and there is total unanimity of views among them, I have personally met Retd. Justice Wajeeh-uddin Ahmed.

    One 22 grade Army officer packed the whole institution of judiciary……. it was a shameful act. Inspite of critisizing Retired General, our friends are targeting the hon. judges. IT IS NOTHING BUT STRANGE

    Anybody who wants to talk to me can write to me…….

    CAN ANYBODY SUGGEST WHAT PRACTICALLY, AN ORDINARY PAKISTANI CAN DO TO SHOW GOODWILL AND SUPPORT TO THE DEPOSED JUDGES

    Palwasha, were very proud of your father, you, your family and the other judges of the SC. The nation of Pakistan owe a huge debt to your father, the honorable Chief Justice of Pakistan. He will never be forgotten and he will come back. He has immortalized himself and his courage and strength will inspire many in the time to come.

    The CJP, the honorable Justice Iftikhar Chauhdry is a hero and you are the daughter of a hero. You have every right to be proud of what your father has done for the country. And were proud too as well as grateful to you, your father, your family and all the other brave judges who stood up to the dictator.

    Long live, Justice Iftikhar Chauhdry – the hero of Pakistan

    Dear daughter of the EX CJP of Pakistan

    Whether the removal of your father was right or not is not the question here. What seems to have made him a hero if thats what he is, is the fact that the timing of events to remove him have resulted that he has become a cause celeb for the opposition to bash the incumbent government.

    Is it not required by the Constitution of Pakistan, that your father seems to be so dear to and has sworn to uphold, that someone in his position should be apolitcial and as such should not be seen to be leaning towards one or the other political party.

    After his removal, he chooses a barrister to defend him who certainly has very strong political ties with the PPPP (the opposition at the time), he is also known to be a VERY good friend of the PML-N leader Nawaz Sharif ( opposition at the time). I’m of course talking about Aitzaz Ahsan. The man who now goes round championing the free and independent judiciary – was he not the man that was involved in the Lahore High Court incident, where supporters of the PML led by Nawaz Sharif, stormed the building and held hostage, many judges etc.

    Also, when your father was re-instated in July last year, why did he only get away on a “technicality”.
    Why did he not fight to clear his name of all charges labeled against him – with regards to corruption?
    Why was your brother using a vehicle paid for by the Pakistani people (Honda Accord), for his personal use?
    Why was your family using another Honda for their use?
    Why was your father claiming traveling expenses for his family’s travels?
    Why did he not argue against and prove as false all the expense statements anomalies where he was claiming petrol allowance from a garage that does not sell petrol?
    Why did ask the Intelligence Services to counteract against the negative publicity he was receiving before his reference in March 2007?
    Why did he not justify the reasoning for ordering the civil servants to upgrade his official car to one of the latest models of a Mercedes? All around the world officials use the vehicle their office is allocated and do not demand a new latest model of their choice.
    Why did your father argue that as head of the Supreme Judicial Council, he was ABOVE the law? In a democracy NO ONE is above the law!
    Why was he taking suo moto notices of decisions that the parliament had made? Does he not know the constitution he has sworn to uphold? Doe she not realise that the constitution is the law? Does he not know that the Parliament is the highest law court in this and any country? Thats why the elected representatives of the people of Pakistan are called the “Law Makers”.
    Your father and all other judges are “interpretors” of the law made by the “Law makers”. Your father does not have any rights to change the law.

    Please get your father to actually answer some of the questions and then may be he will have genuine respect and following. At present your father has been hi-jacked by political parties for their own gain. Someone in your father’s position should have known better and should have been intelligent enough to avoid that.

    Lets move on and think of Pakistan rather then personal vendetta’s that people like your father and his followers are waging.

  • syed sajid mahmood |

    Lawyers movement and Mr. Aetezaz ahsan must take note of one tv program being telecast on TV One. The Anchor of this program is one Dr. Danish. This man is so biased and presenting only one sided picture………. He has been giving strange remarks regarding deposed judiciary and lawyers movement.

    I am amazed that how an anchor person can be biased to that extent. He is constantly attacking PML(N) and all other segments of society who are struggling for the revival of judiciary.

    Everyone should take note of him, that what sort of journalism he is promoting or he is working for some secret forces.

    Regards

    Mr. Iftikhar Chaudary is the greatest of the great. I am a Pakistani living in Canada. In Canada, the respect of your father is out of question. Even all White men praise the bravery of the CJ. I don’t have words how to express my thoughts but in simple he is the man after Quaid-e-Azam who loves Pakistan.

  • syed sajid mahmood |

    Our beloved judiciary will be back soon, Insha Allah

  • Tahseen Alam Khan |

    He said a very big NO after that, therefore He has to be respected. Inshallah they will be restored.

  • sana saleem |

    we are indeed very proud of the sacrifices you have made, if nothing else the whole nation feels the pain of your younger bro balaach who wasn’t allowed to visit his physiotherapist for the 5 months of house arrest, we feel strongly against the govt restricting you and your sisters to be able to attend school and universities. The CJ corrupt or not hero or traitor , this is indeed about human rights, any one may it be our government or who ever doesn’t have the right to punish anyones children’s for the possible crime the elder has committed. The unnecessary restrictions you and your family had to face are condemnable.

  • Tahseen Alam Khan |

    PAKISTAN, LAW, CONSTITUTION, and AWAM are relative terms with no recognition or absolute value. It depends who is using these words it changes across the table. I once again wish that despite these ugly situations the honorable Judiciary is restored Amin.

  • engineer muhammad ra |

    there are no misgivings that the proclaimation of emergency on nov 3rd 2007 was unconstitutional.due to the spport of his autocratic power president mushraf suspended the constitution. it was misery for pakistani nation and cjp along with his 60 companion were deposed. i hope they will must be restored in order to create justice in pakistan ( ameen)

  • M Saleem Chaudhry |

    It’s a pity two Machiavellian characters of the first order,Zardari and Musharaf are playing games in tandem with greedy and goofy Nawaz Sharif, with not only judiciary but 170 million Pakistanis who gave clear verdict on Feb.18,2008 for the change of the order.All this is being done to save their chairs and vested interest, through continuity of infamous NRO and dilly dallying restoration of independent judiciary.However it’s their tomfoolery and soon the people will hold their necks and then they will have no place to hide.

  • saleem butt |

    Sir, I am a law graduate and therefore naturally I have close eye on the situation and developments that are taking places on the subject. Very unfortunately I have to say that although the president musharraf had done not well in tackling this situation – yet people of vested interest have further deteriorated the situation to the extent that it now seems not very easy to get rid of the situation honourably by either party …… is this a matter of love to the judiciary and its institutions by judges or lawyers or a source of black-mailing by some selfish politicians who pretend to love to Pakistan … yet reside and hold meetings outside the country… whom they are serving … which coutnry they love to….how they can prove their love to Pakistan….. If they or any one else have an anwswer to my questions? ….please mail to me – its SALEEM BUTT

    Salam to All pakistanis.

    The Daughtor of chief justice is right and she knows how we can success because judiary is our main thing.if Governament does not respect judicary then any one can not save this country and our lives.

    And we should proud that we have a chief justice like "Ifthekar Muhammad Chudary".

    About me we should respect judciary.
