You know something is wrong with the polity when the executive is treated like a doormat. And when even the judiciary is thrown out at whims and fancies, then things go really really wrong!
But what can you say when the Chief Justice of land’s Supreme Court is thrown into a jail WITH family including an 8 year old kid!
That is what happened to the last Pakistan Chief Justice Ifthikar Muhammad Chaudhry. He and his family are under house arrest. Even his youngest son of 8 years. Forget his school, the kid cannot even go to the house’s yard to play or even the verandah to enjoy the winter sun. What can be worse than that?
When the President of a country fears the independence of an 8 year old, you know his days are numbered. What is really sad in all this is that he is one of the best Army officers that the country has had! If this is how fearful the country’s soldiers are when “sh*t hits the fan”; you know it needs a LOT of help!
