In defense of Aitzaz Ahsan: What do ordinary Pakistanis think?

The depth of hatred of right wing urban central punjab against BB is amazing. Of 30 years of her political life she was in power for only five years. Compare it with 15 years of Sharifs in power and 20 years of military raj.

Why Atezaz still remains in PPP:
1. Atezaz is a democrat, PPP is the largest democratic political party
2. Atezaz’s sees Pakistan as a federation, PPP is tha biggest federal party
3. Atezaz’s belongs to left centre of political landscape, PPP is the leading party on the left centre
4. Atezaz is ideologically liberal progressive, anti mullah, anti establishment, so in his view PPP is still the ace political force in this regard
5. Atezaz shares the idea of geographic nationalism with PPP in contrast to religion based pan nationalism of the right wingers.
Hence he remains in PPP. His only irreconcilable difference with the party is teh restoration of 2 nov judiciary in toto.

Interestingly Aitzaz Ahsan is the leader of the lawyers struggle and he will remain the leader and more interestingly CJ is also making sure that he does not fall into hands of the agencies , I was amused and could guess frustration of some people when CJ talked about “Shaheed Benazir Bhutto” and also about the current assemblies being elected constitutionally and giving assurance to the elected government that “Free Judiciary” is not a threat to democratic setup.

...Imran Khan has no plan no manifesto , no party, no courage and above all has no relation to poor masses. Imran is just playing cheap politics on judiciary issue. Suppose if there was no judiciary issue? suppose BB was alive and restored Iftikhar then what?

After Nov 03 2007 when most of the lawyer leaders were jailed including Aitizaz what Imran did?

and finally when sent to jail why he beg and went on hunger strike for his own release?

This is perhaps the most frustrating period for the ISI and its cronies as the government sitting in Islamabad is led by no other than Asif Zardari , opposition is led by no other than Nawaz Sharif , and struggle for the independent judiciary is led by no other than Aitzaz Ahsan and the hero of the people is no other than CJ Iftikhar Chaudary.

There is a difference between talking the talk and walking the talk. Aitzaz has proved himself to be leader perhaps one of the best leaders. As I said this is perhaps the best era in our socio-political history where we have the government led by AZ , opposition led by NS, movement led by AA and hero Iftikhar Chaudary…

I am amused and glad.

You know what people like yourselves will be just as disappointed by Ali Ahmed Kurd as you are disappointed by Aitzaz Ahsan , just here the Kurd’s speech today and read his history. Kurd has always been left wing comrade , he has spent years in jail along with comrades of Aitzaz , he has braved many dictators just like Aitzaz.

Atizaz Ahsan is not an ordinary leadership. I don’t want to go in politics right now. Suppose Aitizaz had not been a politician, Suppose he was not even a great lawyer even then his book “Indus Saga” is a great favor to our nation. We are nation who doesn’t know its history or origin.

He has represented in a very unique way our identity as Pakistani, as we were sons of Indus that was unique and different from Ganga Jamna civilizations.
But who cares?
