You’ve done jus­tice

Southasia - - EDITOR’S MAIL -

All the cover sto­ries of SouthAsia’s Jan­uary 2014 is­sue were well worth a read. I must com­pli­ment the writ­ers for com­ing up with thor­ough and de­tailed analy­ses of the var­i­ous as­pects of the ju­di­ciary un­der for­mer Chief Jus­tice Iftikhar Chaudhry. No mat­ter what his crit­ics say, credit goes to Chaudhry for mak­ing ev­ery­one bow be­fore the rule of law - from the head of the state to the head of the in­sti­tu­tion con­sid­ered even more pow­er­ful than the state it­self.. What I found miss­ing in your cov­er­age, how­ever, was a de­tailed ac­count of the move­ment for the restora­tion of ju­di­ciary led by the lawyers and sup­ported by many po­lit­i­cal par­ties as well as civil so­ci­ety. An ar­ti­cle on the his­toric move­ment would have com­pleted the pic­ture. But it was a good is­sue.
