As per 1973 Constitution of Islamic Republic of Pakistan


6. (1) Any person who abrogates or attempts or conspires to abrogate, subverts or attempts or conspires to subvert the Constitution by use of force or show of force or by other unconstitutional means shall be guilty of high treason.

(2) Any person aiding or abetting the acts mentioned in clause (1) shall likewise be guilty of high treason.

As per Daily Dawn Thu, 20 Aug, 2009,


“Whoever is friend of Musharraf is traitor,” PML-N members chanted during Chaudhry Nisar’s speech in response to MQM protest shouts against his criticism of the Karachi-based party’s association first with Pakistan’s third military dictator late Gen Zia-ul-Haq and then with Gen Musharraf, bringing repeated calls from Speaker Fehmida Mirza for calm and tolerance between the rivals. MQM deputy parliamentary leader Haider Abbas Rizvi complained his party had been used by both the PPP and PML-N whenever they needed its support but ignored afterwards and even subjected to military operations as he replied to the opposition leader’s criticism for what he called “befooling the people of Karachi”, siding with two military dictators and joining coalitions with the parties it accused of operations against it.

As per learned and respected Mr. Ayaz Amir (Member National Assembly - Pakistan Muslim League - Nawaz),


“Historic”, we are being told — and told without end — is what the judgment of their Supreme Court lordships is. General (r) Pervez Musharraf’s Nov 3, 2007, action has been declared “unconstitutional” and “civil society” is ecstatic, some of our wilder drumbeaters assuring us that the doors on military interventionism have been closed forever. Ah, if wishes were horses.

The Supreme Court judgment not so much revises history as cuts it up, wrapping it in neat packages. For it declares only one action of Musharraf’s unconstitutional — his Nov 3 Emergency, which came at the fag end of his rule. The inescapable conclusion we are left with is that everything else the man did fell within the ambit of the Constitution. Now what was Musharraf’s original sin from which flowed everything else? Why, his coup d’état of Oct 12, 1999, when his generals overthrew an elected government, disbanded the National Assembly, put the Constitution into cold storage and imprisoned not only the then prime minister but his closest colleagues and even members of his family. Just as Adam ate the apple he wasn’t supposed to touch and as a consequences was expelled from Paradise, the apple which Musharraf plucked and put into his mouth was on the fateful evening of Oct 12, all those years ago, when he was in the air on a flight from Sri Lanka, while his generals — chief among them Usmani, Aziz and Mahmood — went about the removal of the elected government. That was the mother of all sins. So how strange and dripping with irony this omission: about that seminal event, which set in train all the sorrows the nation was to reap thereafter, their lordships in their “historic” judgment have nothing to say.

For this of course we must understand the problems of the past. For in 2000, a few months after the mother of all sins, when this matter came before the then Supreme Court headed by Chief Justice Irshad Hasan Khan, the nation witnessed another of those electrifying performances which have made “the doctrine of necessity” so famous in our land, the Supreme Court validating Musharraf’s coup and, what’s more, allowing him a grace period of three years to hold elections. In its generosity, it also gave Musharraf the authority to amend the Constitution for purposes of holding elections. So just as the Anwarul Haq Supreme Court gave a clean chit to General Ziaul Haq’s coup of 1977, another Supreme Court signed a papal bull conferring legitimacy on another illegitimate offspring of our political adventures. Now for an inconvenient fact. On the bench headed by Chief Justice Irshad Hasan Khan there sat an up-and-coming jurist, stern of eye and distinguished of look, by the name of Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry. Yes, he was among the illustrious upholders of the law and the Constitution who bathed Musharraf and his generals in holy water. REFERENCE: Writing of history or triumph of amnesia?

JAMAAT-I-ISLAMI chief Munawwar Hassan has once again demanded former president Pervez Musharraf’s trial for ‘high treason’. I agree with him and demand that all those who cooperated with dictators, dead and alive, must also be tried for high treason. There is no party in Pakistan which can outdo the JI in hypocrisy and misusing our religion, Islam, for obnoxious purposes. This party helped in the subversion of the 1973 Constitution by joining Ziaul Haq’s cabinet and supporting him for full 11 years in his tyranny. Its party paper, Jasarat, lauded Ziaul Haq’s Provisional Constitution Order and the Revival of Constitution Order. The JI now demands restoration of the original Constitution, but it supported Ziaul Haq whole-heartedly when he mutilated and carried out arbitrary changes in the Constitution by carrying out arbitrary amendments for which he had no legal or moral justication. He was a usurper pure and simple, and the JI regarded him as its hero because he murdered Z. A. Bhutto. Reference: Trying Zia and his accomplices Thursday, 20 Aug, 2009 12:41 AM PST
