Today is a great day for this country, a defining moment. It is great not just because the Chief Justice has been restored to his rightful place, not because the leaders have finally seen sense. It is a great moment because the people of Pakistan all got together yesterday and showed their leaders that they will be held accountable fo their mistakes. It is glorious because the democracy that our leaders keep talking about was in full flow yesterday as the public demanded and their wishes were fulfilled, they had but one voice and one cause and all the containers blocking them, the police baton charging and tear gassing them and the barbed wires in their way were destroyed in front of the power of the people of this great land.
This is a moment to celebrate, definitely and it is quite obvious with the jubilation on peoples faces that we will remember this for a long time to come, now that we as a nation have realized our true power we should also understand that restoring the judiciary was the first battlefront. There are many more battles still to be fought and won before we can truly get our country back on track. I hope that from here on we will forge light from the darkness that surrounds us with the determination of our unity. I wish to congratulate all of Pakistan for this movement and its suitable end, the lawyers, civil society, political workers, politicians like Sherry Rehman, Raza Rabbani & Safdar Abbasi who resigned for this cause and the leaders of the long march like Ali Ahmed Kurd, Munir A Malik etc.
Long live the people of Pakistan and long live Pakistan.
