Independence of judiciary is a fundamental element of a state. Pakistan's current situation demands all the civil society in general and legal fraternity in particular to come together and demand respect and independence of judiciary. We believe that it is important not for Pakistan and Pakistanis but citizens of the world to declare this assault at the judiciary as reprehensible. We request all those that value a civil and peaceful coexistence work to ensure that The Supreme Court and High Court be allowed to exercise their constitutional mandate and their power be restored. We invite you to issue an unequivocal condemnation of the acts directed against the court and continue to recognize the Legal fraternity's position that they recognize the court as it exists under the constitution and not as under a provisional (un) constitutional order. Pakistan bar council position is both morally and legally correct that the Court under the constitution continues to enjoy the mandate given to it as per the constitution.It is a battle between Rule of Law and Rule of the Gun and we ask you to be on the side of rule of Law .
