CHI - President Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA) Ali Ahmed Kurd said on Monday that he, along with other renowned lawyers, would continue their visit to the political leaders across the country to invite them for participating in the coming Long March.
Talking to the journalists here at Sindh Bar Council, Ali Ahmed Kurd said that after meeting with PML (N) leader, they would also meet with Tehreek-e-Insaf chief Imran Khan, Ameer Jamaat Islami Qazi Hussain Ahmed, Sardar Akhtar Mengal and other political leaders in different parts of the country.
He said the motif behind the meeting was to make Long March successful, while he expressed that doors are open to all the political parties who wish to participate in the long march.
Kurd has denied the prospects regarding the rescheduling or cancelling of long march. He said that the long march program would be held according to decided schedule.
He added that neither the government had made any contact with them nor they had taken any decision in this regard.
He hoped that the government would not make any attempt to sabotage the coming long march.
He strongly condemned the suspension of Mehmood-ul-Hassan vice chairman of Sindh Bar Council (SBC) from Pakistan Bar Council PBC and said that such attempts from the PBC were to pressurise the lawyers' leaders who were playing vital role in the movement.
He termed such PBC action as illegal and unconstitutional. He also said that such attempts couldn't reduce the intensity of lawyer's struggle.
The SCBA President also lauded that the lawyers of Sindh, particularly Karachi had scarified a lot for their causes; even they also scarified their lives during the ongoing movement initiated for the free-judiciary.
He added that their sacrifices would never be forgotten in the history of the country.
He also said that the lawyers' movement was going on in a peaceful manner since it has been launched, the violence would not be tolerated in the movement. He said that the lawyers' movement made a history by executing the movement peacefully.
Likewise the movement will be continued with same zeal at every cost till the reinstatement of the deposed judges including Chief Justice Ifikhar Mohammad Chaudhry and the restoration of the pre-November 2, 2007, judiciary.
