LAHORE - Lawyers' Thursday protest rally was mainly dominated by flag hoisting activists of different political parties as a thin number of lawyers again participate in the rally that has become a regular feature since the inconclusive end of the Long March. On the call of Pakistan Bar Council, City lawyers held the protest rally like previous Thursdays. Activists of different political parties including PML-N, Tehreek-e-Insaf, Jamat-e-Islami, Pakhtoonkhawa Milli Awami Party and Tehrik-e-Khaksar while wielding their party flags participated the rally. The political activists who were three times more than the lawyers, outnumbered them. With the presence of large number of political activists, the lawyers rally seemed to be a political show rather of black coats shows who were not more than two hundreds. Activists of MSF, Concerned Citizens of Pakistan and Labour Party were also among the protesters. The activists of different parties were also holding portraits of their respective leaders and were raising slogans in favour of them. PML-N and Tehrik-e-Insaf activists chanted slogans against the PPP leadership. Prior to taking out the protest rally, the LHCBA and Lahore Bar Association (LBA) lawyers held their general house meetings at their respective bars and made speeches in demands of restoration of all deposed judges. On the other hand, the lawyers also failed to observe complete boycott of PCO judges on Thursday despite all-out efforts made by the office-bearers of the LHCBA. The office-bearers of LHCBA and SCBA urged lawyers to observe complete boycott of court of the PCO judges. Majority of lawyers remained 'busy' in their routine activities in the courts and meetings with their clients. Many of them were seen not interested in the boycott of the court due the culminating effects of the Long March on June 13. However, despite all warnings and motivations for staying away from the court of the PCO judges for the restoration of deposed judges many lawyers dared to appeared in the courts and held meetings with their clients. The death of a former judge of LHC proved a blessing in disguise for the lawyers as judges did not work after tea break The lawyers not attached with the lawyers popular movement ignored the call of the Supreme Court Bar Association and Lahore High Court Pakistan Association for observing complete boycott on every Thursday and appeared before the courts boldly. The LBA lawyers took out the rally from Aiwan-e-Adl courts and the LHCBA lawyers joined them at the GPO Chowk by taking out rally from the Lahore High Court.  All the protesters held a joint march towards the Punjab Assembly building as usual by raising slogans against the PCO judges and in favour of sacked judges. Under the scorching sun the protesters reached the Faisal Chowk, the culmination point of the rally, and their leaders delivered speeches there. Avoiding last week controversy, the LHCBA lawyers took to the Mall well before the LBA rally reached there. This time LHCBA did not give chance to the LBA to hold a separate rally with a view to dispel the impression that there were no division among the lawyers. The LHCBA had arranged a truck which the lawyers used as a stage at the Faisal Chowk. The leaders of all segments of protesters were given chance to deliver their speeches. Tehrik-e-Khaksar chief Hamid-ud-Din Ahmed Al-Mashraki as a protest stopped his speech when he was asked by a lawyer to cut his speech short.
