CITY NOTES: Bail, terrorism and contempt collectively



The excellent news is that Shahbaz Gill has received bail from the excessive court docket. Even higher information is that he was not instantly rearrested on getting bail. Which may must do with the instances in opposition to him having been registered in Punjab police stations, and Ch Pervaiz Elahi being Punjab CM now. Dr Gill gained’t be arrested not as a result of Jats can’t be arrested, however as a result of he belongs to the PTI. Not that PTI members are immune, however as a result of the instances in opposition to him, legitimate as they is likely to be, had been registered due to his celebration affiliation.

Bail doesn’t imply you’re riff of the case, nevertheless it does imply you may have an excellent likelihood of being acquitted. In fact, Shahbaz Gill may make a mistake and panic, and leap bail in order to go to the USA, the place his spouse and household is, to not point out the sister who made an impassioned enchantment for him. Why leap bail when it is step one on the highway to acquittal? In fact, there are rumours flying round that the Punjab authorities may fall, during which case Dr Gill may discover that he will probably be plunged into the lifetime of as a fugitive. Except he does the smart factor and surrenders to the police.

He may need to take a look at the instance of Mian Nawaz Sharif, who is likely to be the PM’s older brother, however whose coronary heart skips a beat each time he sees a bobby.  Up to now, none has come for him, however he’s a fugitive from justice, and has been declared an absconder over right here. So Shahbaz Gill ought to adjust to the phrases of his bail, and keep away from being declared an absconder.

He may take a leaf out of Imran Khan’s ebook. Imran initially tried to grease out of going earlier than the FIA JIT investigating the case in opposition to him for terrorism for allegedly threatening each Choose Zeba Chaudhry, who had heard Dr Gill’s case, and the IGP Islamabad. However he went ultimately, simply as he went earlier than the Islamabad Excessive Court docket, which has held him in contempt for his remarks.

Imran has received a novel thought of how you can reply a contempt discover. Contempt notices are solely despatched his when the decide is satisfied that the offence has occurred. All that’s left is to conduct a trial. Even the place the defendant needs to contest the cost, he’s supposed to start with an unconditional apology and by throwing himself on the mercy of the court docket. I’m positive that’s what his legal professionals in all probability instructed him. Nonetheless, it appears he was not listening, and provided no apology. Personally, I don’t suppose he’s any form of ladla. I feel he simply received first an order to file a recent reply (that’s, to apologize abjectly), and an indictment on September 22 to present the court docket time to get well from the shock.

In the meantime, you’ve received the PTI decrying the try by the PML(N) to ‘weaponize’ faith. Isuspect Federal Minister Javed Latif could have been elevating the anti-Qadiani spectre primarily as a result of he doesn’t have a portfolio. You see, if he had one, he would make some announcement associated to his ministry. Usually, that may be the one proof to show to his constituents that he was alive.

I ponder on the cost used. It’s been used in opposition to the present COAS, and I keep in mind it used in opposition to Ziaul Haq. Anti-Qadiani riots had been utilized in 1953 to impose a mini-Martial Regulation in Lahore, which was mentioned to be a gown rehearsal for 1958. Personally, I don’t suppose 1953 was a gown rehearsal for something, however I’m positive some shiny younger workers officer dug out the 1953 file in 1958.

Does anybody keep in mind the primary Faizabad dharna? Which led to the Regulation Minister, Zahid Hamid, having to resign? Or PML(N) MNA (and Mian Nawaz Sharif’s son-in-law) Capt (retd) Safdar,who made not-so-veiled assaults on the COAS?

That individual card has been stored up the sleeve till now, whereas Imran has been busy promising to construct the Riasat-e-Madina. Not solely that, he additionally referred to as on his supportersto wage a jihad on opponents. He additionally spoke of his personal facet as being Haq (Reality) and the opposite facet Batil (Evil). I suppose he has a proper to complain, however he ought to keep in mind who set this cat among the many pigeons first.

Local weather change needs to be extra dramatic



The judgement by the Election Fee within the reference despatched by the Nationwide Meeting Speaker about Imran Khan’s non-declaration of property has been reserved. Everybody appears 5o suppose that it ought to result in his disqualification. So let’s see how the ECP oils out of disqualifying him.

It won’t be really easy as the best way the Islamabad Excessive Courtroom obtained out of indicting him, which might have led to his being disqualified, by accepting his promise to apologise to Choose Zeba Chaudhry for threatening her after she gave remand of Shehbaz Gill to the Islamabad Police. I do marvel what’s going to occur when he does apologise to her. I believe he ought to put the incident behind him, particularly since Gill is now out on bail. It might have been one for the books if Imran had been disqualified nonetheless.

Imran shouldn’t be so stroppy about apologizing. He ought to take a leaf out of the guide of the late Rana Phool Muhammad, that scrappy backbencher who made a advantage about his lack of formal schooling,”Say what you need,after which take again your phrases.” Of  course,he was speaking in regards to the Punjab Meeting, not the judiciary.

It’s additionally attention-grabbing that Imran can take trip to rail in opposition to the expense of Shehbaz going to deal with the UN Normal Meeting when the nation was affected by floods. After all,everyone knows of his deep concern for the affectees, which he confirmed by cancelling rallies, and getting his ft moist whereas visiting the affectees, and ensuring that there was actual cash deposited with the banks after his telethon.

It was additionally a aid to not be continuously buttonholed and instructed what a superb speech it was. When Imran first went to the UN GA, he was hailed by all as having made a superb speech. The issue was, he saved going, and neither the state media nor the PTI trolls may admit his speeches have been much less good than the primary.

I do know the floods are being blamed on local weather change, however someway I had anticipated it to be extra dramatic. Y’know, snow in Might possibly, leaves falling in August, or heat-waves in December. All that’s taking place is that the local weather stays the identical, however the climate grows worse. I imply,these are certainly in all probability the worst ever floods in our historical past, however they  occurred while you usually have flooding. Not of that depth, in fact, bu flooding nonetheless.

We’ve been getting guests from overseas. First was UN Secretary Normal Antonio Gutteres, then was the actors enjoying Abdur Rehman Alp in Ertogrul, after which there was Angelina Jolie, the Hollywood actress. She was additionally right here for the 2005 earthquake. The spotlight of that go to was her photoshoot with then PM Shaukat Aziz. There was no photoshoot this time, because the PM was in New York.

These aren’t the one guests. England is right here for the primary time in 17 years. The captain, Moeen Ali, is the primary England captain of Pakistani origin. Nasser Hussain, who captained England on the flip of the century, was half Indian and half English. He was Chennai-born, and thus additionally certified for India. At the very least he was half-English, and took after his mom. Moeen Ali, alternatively, appears to be like very Pakistani.

FOOTNOTE TO THESE NOTES: Nawaz Alam has handed away. I can’t clarify how quiet and environment friendly a photographer he was. Photographers are the true journalists, I typically thought. A few years in the past, within the final quarter of the twentieth century, he as soon as instructed me that he took his digital camera into the john. “If a snake comes out, the Information Editor will need a photograph.” Ever since, I at all times made certain I had a pen, simply in case I needed to make notes.
