    It was really heartening to see members of civil society with us today. Even though it was a long journey, yet members of the civil society remained with us throughout the hourney and just to see our own people supporting us by their acts, was something which has rejuvenated the lawyers of Karachi, who have faced the wrath of the state and its mercenaries (MQM).
    As a lawyer, I salute all those people who came today…and you guys are our adrenaline…stay with us…support us…we will change the course of history…veritas est justitae mater…let us manifest the truth once and for all

    “On Saad”: Civil society is also proud of the efforts done by the lawyers. We were in ISBD a week before when lahore to isbd car rally was organised. One of our friend was arrested along with 20+ lawyers. But every lawyer was worried for our friend instead of their other arrested fellows[lawyers]. Some were calling higher authorities, some went to police station, some trying to relax us…they cooporated alot with us and took our friend out from the bars in hours. We were really pleased to see the way they take care of us . There are many other incidents when they helped in confrontation with police also :). I hope Lawyers and civil society always be glued togather, and InshALLAH sooner we will have our judiciary restored
