@PakShock: I want to ask you why those 200million whom he was supposed to represent not protesting? Protecting a criminal is a criminal act, if somebody commits one he will be dealt with accordingly. This is democracy.

@Muhammad Ahsan KHAN: Which anti-Islamic law has been passed by the parliament? The last person who equated himself with Islam was Zia. Are you suggesting bringing up corruption charges against the son of CJ is an un-Islamic act? In case you were in coma for the last 15 years, this very judiciary including Iftikhar Chaudhry gave legal cover to 11 years of military rule of Musharaf under a similar ordinance. Did you protest about that un-Islamic act?
