Is imposition of Martial Law a certainity now

Posted on September 10, 2007. Filed under: Nawaz Sharif, Pakistan, Politics |

Yes, I have let myself chuckle more than a few times at the drama that unfolded at Islamabad airport. I went to sleep late at night content that Nawaz was being flown to Attock jail. I woke up to find that a couple of hours after that drama, at the airport, he had been air-shipped to Jeddah.

I wish the government had allowed him to come. They should have tried him in the courts under the existing and, even, new cases. They should have tried him in the media as a habitual liar and cheat. They should have destroyed his political career. They should have imprisoned him. Instead, they have decided to ship him off.

This may just turn out to be a further ratcheting up of the confrontation between the apex judiaciary and the Presidency. Should the CJ take notice of this situation in detriment to the government, imposition of martial law would become almost a neccessary evil.
