"Confusing Revenge with Justice"
The expression justice is blind suggests that justice is impartial and objective however, Nawaz Sharif’s departure to London on medical grounds nullifies the given statement. . The death sentence verdict given by the special court against General Musharraf has surely caused pain and anguish among Pakistan’s general public. However, the written detailed verdict of the death sentence given to Musharraf has been deemed unlawful and against humanity by almost all quarters of the society. Nawaz Sharif despite being a convict was given the permission to travel abroad on humanitarian grounds. Whereas special courts verdict against Musharraf is against humanity and therefore suggests impartiality. Resultantly the government has decided to move Supreme Judicial council against Justice Waqar Seth owing to his controversial judgment in high treason case. The fact that Law Minister Farogh Naseem has declared Judge Seth In component suggests that some elements in the judiciary often confuse revenge with justice. Therefore, the recent episode of a violent attack on the Pakistan Institution of Cardiology endorses the idea of confusing justice with revenge. There is no denying the fact that the general public is losing hope in the judiciary system considering the partiality shown to Nawaz Sharif. The fact that Nawaz Sharif got a clean reprieve from plane high jacking and other cases suggests that Nawaz Sharif is too precious to be convicted. The reason for getting a clean reprieve from these cases was based on the excuse of being condemned unheard. On the contrary Musharraf has been sentenced 5 times to death by the special court despite being condemned unheard. If the Honorable Court can order to precede the trial even in Musharraf’s absence then absconders Hassan, Hussain Nawaz and Ishaq Dar can also be tried. The fact that Sharif is in London on medical grounds and Musharraf has been declared a traitor despite fighting for the country suggests Justice is not blind in Pakistan.
