Twitter alert: Gilani convicted of contempt

Twitterati feel the court’s decision did little to change their lives.

Web Desk April 26, 2012

In the final hearing of the contempt of court case, the Supreme Court of Pakistan convicted Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani and sentenced him till the rising of court, which lasted only a little while.

Considering the verdict ‘a joke’ was the general reaction of the twitterati who felt that the court’s decision did little to change their lives.

What AKON and Gilani have in common? "Convict". Makes the PM such a badass.

Yes the punishment was just 30 seconds. But it was 30 seconds of standing close to Iftikhar Chaudhary. And he has halitosis.

My life is desperately trying but miserably failing to be affected even a little bit by the Supreme Court's PM contempt case

Favourite moment outside court today: photographers shouting, 'Yousuf, Yousuf' to catch PM's attention.

My revenge from the system. I didn't go to the Supreme Court. I went to an event of KG branch of a school & spoke there as guest speaker.

Iss se zyaada dayr ki saza tau mayN Talha ko badtameezi karnay par de daytee hooN #contempt

(I give Talha longer punishment than this for misbehaving.)

Why is #Gilani being hailed as a hero? He has been convicted. How low and warped is our national benchmark for pride? #Pakistan

SC gave a very clever and fair verdict, PM cannot get pardon as he has completed his sentence and also cannot hold public office, Aitzaz Ahsan was surprised by such a decision and outclassed that he couldn't fill an appeal against sentence
