DailyTimes reports that Waryam Faqir was acquitted of the murder charge of Wali Dad by Additional District and Sessions Judge, Abdul Naeem Memon. It was reported that both the sides (the complainant and the accused) submitted a compromise deed before the court requesting to dispose off the matter in view of out of court settlement arrived at between the parties
It must be recalled that barely 3 months ago the court had ordered the arrest of Varyam Faqir on the muder charge of Wali Dad, an elder of Kashkheli Tribe in April, but during the court hearing, Varyam Faqir managed to run away. It is now that this feudal lord was able to present a compromise document to let him go free.
Wali Dad, was staging a fast unto death in April in a protest over being dispossessed of his anncestral land outside the press club. After his death a murder case was registered against the former MPA.
Its sad to note that the rich and the powerful in this country are able to wriggle themselves out of any tight spot, it is I believe a slap on the face of the judiciary, that it never had the opportunity to physically arrest this powerful politician and he now sits to pardoned merely based on a flimsy compromise document which could at best have been forced from the peasants whom he was bullying in the first place. Its probably well understood that in Pakistan change shall only happen when we finally get rid of the menace called Feudalism
