Twitter alert: Asma Jahangir a target for defamation

Published: June 25, 2012

Local twitterati attack Asma Jahangir after she says PTI part of anti-judiciary conspiracy. PHOTO: FILE

How far does the tolerance of a political activist or a party supporter go? Not too far, apparently.

Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf supporters and workers have been known to lash out at political opponents or rather anyone for speaking against their party or chief Imran Khan.

Their current victim? Prominent lawyer, human rights activist, ex-Supreme Court Bar Association president and former UN rapporteur, Asma Jahangir.

The News had earlier today reported that Jahangir had termed the Arsalan Iftikhar case a conspiracy against the judges. The report quotes Jahangir as stating that the motive behind bringing up the case was to “wrap up” the democratic setup and to “threaten” the judiciary.

The icing on the cake? She was quoted as saying that the PTI were conspirators in this.

The senior lawyer, who has in the recent past represented former Pakistan ambassador to the US Husain Haqqani in the Memogate scandal, is a known outspoken advocate for the rights of women, minorities and others. Additionally, she is also a vocal critic of the military and its “control” of the civilian government.

Jahangir’s stances on numerous issues have often resulted in people terming them as conspiracy theories.

Her recent statement also struck a similar note, unleashing the #BongisLikeAsmaJehangir trend.

PTI well-wishers, supporters (and trolls) were clearly upset with the allegations leveled against their party:

Shoaib Khan ‏@5hobi

so Asma is against anything positive in#pakistan her antijudiciary stance is quite well known, now anti #PTI

imran waseem ‏@imranwaseem

#BongisLikeAsmaJehangir no one asked us to start this trend, this is the sponatneous reply to nonsense statements from her

Nimrah Anwar Khan ‏@NimraahhKhan

#PTI was behind Gandhi JEE’s death! #BongisLikeAsmaJehangir

The tweets did not just stop there, some even resorted to personal attacks against her:

My husband and all my kids are becoming Imran Khan fans, must be a conspiracy by those who founded PTI.

    Asma’s stance and efforts on human rights are really commendable. She is an asset for the nation. However, she is off the mark on this one. If PTI was in cahoots with anti-democratic forces, it won’t have stood with Judiciary and bashed Riaz Malik. On top of it, why would PTI be against democracy at a time when they themselves are expecting to get a significant mandate in polls? This assumption of hers simply doesn’t stand the litmus test of rational behavior.

    Once again, PTI’s only “problem” is the amount of its supporters : you can’t call all PTI fans “trolls” because some on Twitter do a massive-bashing of someone and honestly Asma Jehangir is a bit guilty too in that case, she’s the first to (rightfully so) blast the “conspiracy theories” but to say that “the creators” (as if they were from some remote part of the galaxy) of PTI are against the SC is a joke.

Instead of getting sentimental try to evaluate what she has said. Pre-mature jumping to draw conclusions will not benefit. Wait and with in couple of days conspiracy theories will be out. One for the constitutional amendments by the politicians to impeach CJ of SC in the senate and other one by apex courts to keep on convicting at least two more PMs of Pakistan. Who all are involved in these will be very uncomfortable for many of you.

    Its not malfunctioning of PPP govt. PPP govt was not allowed to function from the inception. An order was issued directing the ISI to report to the interior ministry. But the Army made a hue and cry resulting in the reversal of the order. Amendments for appointment and dismissal of higher judiciary by the govt thru NA was stalled and major amendments were reversed. Not even a single economic reform was allowed to be carried out. List will go on.
    In all these actions the opposition did not help the govt. If it is the case how can the govt run its business. In all other democracies, whether right or wrong the govt was allowed to function and at the end of the term people will decide the fate of govt. That is not the case in Pakistan.
    Not only that opposition does not have the patience to wait for the next election. It wants others like Judiciary and Army to remove the govt. In a democracy people are supreme and they should have the power to remove their elected govt. I do not know when will such things happen in Pakistan?

    The word “defamation” is too strong to apply at this particular instance. The nuances of expressions could very well undermine the impartiality of a news source. You should remain impartial and report the event.

    Their current victim? Prominent
    lawyer, human rights activist,
    ex-Supreme Court Bar Association
    president and former UN rapporteur,
    Asma Jahangir [...] is a known
    outspoken advocate for the rights of

    Additionally, she is also a vocal
    critic of the military and its
    “control” of the civilian government.

    In the face of it, such kind of glorification, quoted above, gives your story an explicit slant when you trivialize an actual instance of “defamation” by reporting it in a lighter note as follows:

    we love our country, its army, its agencies and everything good in it. at the same time, we hate anyone against them and we will express it. You so called old educated people, have you realized what Pakistan you got from your elders and in what shape you are giving it to new generation. Did you ever think about others n ur country? no never, always self interest, which led us at this point. You do not know how desperate we are? ager PTI nay youth ko hope na di hoti tou tum logo ko anjaam tak pohancha chukay hotay. old corrupt population.Recommend

    First of all, AJ MAY have been all that the scribe claims she is, but to date, what has or have been her services on merit for the nation? What has or have been her achievements till date? When you are through finding an answer, think about how she shot to so much fame and influence? As for the reaction as depicted and conveyed in this article, the ET seems to be bitten by something….REALITY perhaps?????

    After reading all the posts, one concludes that Asma Jahangir is very critical to Army’s role in politics. Now all those factions of the society who are in love with Pak Army, they criticize Asma and some of them rather exaggerate and target Asma as agent of India and the West.

    It is said that recent defaming acts of judiciary (Malik Riaz Case) was a conspiracy basically supported by the Military Establishment. Now Asma knows this much more than us and she sees PTI’s role in this conspiracy as well.

    PTI supporter’s love for Pak Army and hatred for Asma shows that they don’t like Asma criticizing Army’s role in politics. An unbiased person can see here a good connection between Military Establishment and PTI.
