Post-NRO commotion

Monday, January 11, 2010

I have been doing a lot of thinking regarding the commotion caused by the anti-NRO Supreme Court judgment. After all, almost all politicians (including those in the government) said that the law violated the constitution and was against the tenets of Islam. The reaction from the president is also not understandable. An honest man like him shouldn’t be disturbed at all (unlike many others) if there is a popular demand to reopen all cases which were closed after Musharraf’s NRO came into force. I suppose one reason for his reaction is that he can’t let his cronies suffer just because the judges want to end corruption in the country.
