Ali Ahmed Kurd elected as the SCBA President

Ali Ahmed Kurd yesterday won the elections of the Supreme court Bar Association with a landslide victory uprooting Mohammed Zafar. After the landslide victory Kurd and his entire panel will replace the team of Barrister Aitzaz Ahsan, and hopefully continue the aggressive campaign for the independence of judiciary.

Ali Ahmed Kurd clinched a thumping majority of Kurd bagged 1,052 votes out of a total of 1,724 votes. His rival Muhammad Zafar, the nominee of the Peoples Lawyers Forum (PLF) and openly backed by Attorney General Sardar Mohammad Latif Khan Khosa, former attorney general Malik Mohammad Qayyum and Ashraf Wahla group, could secure only 220 votes in Lahore

For the people supporting the rule of law and the independence of Judiciary over the last two years this is definitely a moment of hope to witness that many lawyers still support the movement despite all the negativity over the last years and attempts by many smaller faction to create a rift within the SCBA.

    Its the defeat of PPP under Zardari. Just on my way to office Mr Stupid asked me will PPP review her policy regarding judges issues after the defeat of PPF? I asked, given the political history of pakistan, i would say NO.
    however its the new energy for pakistanis struggling for the independence of judiciary and rule of Law.

    His election is unfortunate. I very much question his credentials as a lawyer. He is a third class lawyer and I am sure that bar association will regret this decision in coming days.

    The election and its results were similar to the referendum held under musharraf regime. since mushi was in power he had the control on results. similarly, since Kurd was in administrative control of SC, he was elected with manipulated results.

    They will regret his election as SCBA president just as the nation regrets electing Zardari as the godfather of the nation. Kurd needs to be in the Psychiatry ward.

    The Hijra Community aka Unemployable lawyers under the leadership of tabalchi
    (Aitezaz) and a bad harmonium player cum gumby Kurd thinks they have reinstated the droopy eye one (Iftikhar Chaudry of Gujrat and Nawaz). As someone who supported their cause they should accept that parliament is supreme although PPP should seriously try to sort the problem out as it’s a cracker waiting to explode and the anti-demoratic forces like Nawaz Sharif and Na-Pak Fauj will use IFTIKHAR to bring down PPP government some-time in the future.

    Every political party in Pakistan is funded by ISI – MQM is no exception (referring to the infamous Yusuf Haroon Rs.3 million collected on behalf of MQM – Asghar Khans petition in 1991) followed by a witch hunt and ethnical cleansing against us in early nineties – we learned our lesson.
    Same year following people got the money too:
    Karachi Bar Association – Rs.5,05,680; Fakhruddin G. Ebrahim Rs.2,00,000;
    Nawaz Sharif received Rs. 3.5 million apart from the couple of million dollars from Osama Bin Laden – Mir Afzal 10 million, Ghulam Mustafa Jatoi 5 million, Jam Sadiq Ali 5 million, Mohammed Khan Junejo 2.5 million, Pir Pagaro 2 million, Abdul Hafeez Pirzada 3 million, Yusuf Haroon 5 million [he confirms having received this for Altaf Hussain of the MQM], Muzaffar Hussain Shah 0.3 million, Abida Hussain 1 million, Humayun Marri 5.4 million. Sherpao For Election 5,00,000; Anwar Saifullah for MBL deposit 15,00,000; Farooq Leghari PO Issued 1,50,00,000. Another 1,50,00,000 paid through Bank. There are a host of other political figures who received funds like Liaquat Jatoi, Imtiaz Sheikh.” Khar 2 million, Hafeez Pirzada 3 million, Sarwar Cheema 0.5 million and Mairaj Khalid 0.2 million.

    Just a few examples…!!!!

    The Queen who was killed by her Dog

    Piyaray bacho. There was once a queen in the land of pure. She adopted a dog and named him “10 percent”. The dog had lived a poor life in the squalors. The queen gave him love and fed him well.

    The dog would attack the masses and snatch whatever the poor people had. But the queen refused to discipline her dog.

    Finally the people got sick of the queen’s dog and threw her out of office.

    After many years of struggle the queen was on the verge of coming back to power. This time she decided that she would dump the unruly dog after she came to power. Someone informed the dog of the queen’s intent.

    The dog plotted with a tyrant and got the queen killed. On her funeral he put forth a forged will of the queen and self-annointed himself as the new King.

    1991 is too old, why r you going that far.

    Wasn't MQM enjoying the warm lap of Musharraf (PAK FAUJ)? and MQM bilking money (20% of every development contract in Karachi).

    BTW, how did you get this comprehensive report?

    Abusing ali ahmed kurd reveals something for sure…and it is that you guyz are either from MQM or military families or PPP or some other rogue group. Mr Kurd a member of that who stood firm against tyrants and sacrificed a lot.

    It’s common knowledge again and information is from a bloody affidavit filled by Air Marshall Asghar Khan at SC (signatories of the affidavit includes both Gen(retd.) Asad Durrani and Gen(retd) Hameed Gul.

    PPP/MQM/ANP and allies are 220 (excluding PML-Q left overs who are against your Chief) which is more then 2/3 majority in the parliment.

    @all you guys
    it is very intriguing to see some of your comments (thumbs up to both barrister and lilkhan and sqadri)
    for someone who is living overseas for the last 10 years, albeit very close to my roots in the north of pakistan, i am livid to see some of the silly arguments.
    do you all realise the land of pure is on the brink of collapse and our poor ppl (and I am referring to more than 80% of the popuation who lives in the rurals areas).
    i cant see any home in the near future as we have our new king (ironic and shameful to see a mental person with so so much controversies), infact even in the near future as the crown prince of pakistan (the junior newly proclaimed bhutto)is being groomed here in the UK
    I have never been so hopeless and shameful and furious at the current situation in our country and instead of putting effors into restoring TRUE justice in our great country, the thugs of PPP, MQM (who have always played their politics on shere fear and holding the poor and extremely polite/well mannered muhajar brothers to continous ransom) and ANP (shame on them too on building their politcs by using the pushtoon trump card and infact stabbing them in th back by now litterrally surrendering to the american attacks.
    i think i got carried away there, sorry if i have taken any of your precious time. Barrister, shame on the likes of ppl like u, how long more do you think this can carry on like this and your coward/traitor/killer bhai here in london operates the strings of our great country on the shoulders of that Mr.10% crook (on a personal note, i think the name should now be somethink like 60-70% for the so called “moderator”, haah, said he will fight against the establishment, my foot
