People Are Shocked At The Words Used By Courts In The Musharraf Judgment

By Astarte | 19 Dec, 2019

Musharraf Judgment has finally been released

Over the past few days the latest development to have gripped the whole country is the court’s verdict in the case of General Pervez Musharraf. The former military dictator has been sentenced to be hanged by the Special Court constituted in Islamabad. Naturally, the verdict has divided the country.


The Musharraf judgment has left people divided with the military issuing a statement about the judgment being biased


And politicians like Bilawal trolling the Prime Minister for trying to defend the Musharraf Judgment

Because PPP chairman Bilawal Zardari thinks his mother, former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto’s passing is the responsibility of Musharraf, he has been particularly in celebration mode with regards to the court’s verdict.


Well, earlier today the full text of the Musharraf judgment was finally released and people are shocked by one particular part of it

According to the Judgment of the Special Court, if Musharraf is not “caught” and punished “as per law” his corpse should be “dragged to the D-Chowk, Islamabad, Pakistan and be hanged for 03 days”.


Naturally, people are shocked by the extremity of the words used in the judgment


The whole situation sounds very shockingly unrealistic to many, straight out of Game of Thrones


Many are saying that these words in the Musharraf Judgment are the result of personal vendetta by the Justice Waqar Ahmad Seth who presided over the Special Court


Some are even asking for the Government to file a reference against the judge for dismissal in the Supreme Judicial Council, which has the sole authority to dismiss judges


Others are connecting this to the recent incident of lawyers attacking the Punjab Institute of Cardiology and saying that the whole judicial system is messed


The nature of words used in the judgment is definitely shocking and gruesome. In a civilized democracy, death sentence should completely be abolished in order to prevent such sadistic tendencies to be exercised legally.
