ISLAMABAD - President Asif Ali Zardari Friday approved the induction of four more judges in the Supreme Court of Pakistan. According to an official notification issued by Law Ministry after the approval of President of Pakistan, the fresh appointments include Justice Sardar Muhammad Raza Khan, Justice Nasirul Mulk, Justice Sabihuddin Ahmed and Justice Sarmad Jalal Osmany. Among these, Justice Sardar Muhammad Raza Khan and Justice Nasirul Mulk, the two deposed judges of the apex court, have been reappointed while Justice Sarmad Jalal Osmany has been elevated to Supreme Court from Sindh High Court.   Justice Sabihuddin Ahmed, the deposed Chief Justice of Sindh High Court, is being appointed afresh as judge of the apex court. Chief Justice of Pakistan, Justice Abdul Hameed Dogar will administer the oath to these judges in a ceremony at 11:30 a.m. in the Supreme Court building.   With these fresh appointments, the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) government has so far restored five out of 13 judges sacked by former President Pervez Musharraf on November 3 last year when he imposed emergency in the country and refurbished the judiciary through a Provisional Constitutional Order (PCO). Out of those who were deposed by Musharraf regime, Justice Rana Bhagwandas has already retired while Justice Javed Iqbal had accepted a government job days after he was sacked.   Among the rest of eleven judges, Justice Mian Shakir Ullah Jan, Justice Syed Jamshed Ali, and Justice Tassaduq Hussain Jillani had already taken oath after their reappointment a few weeks ago and now Justice Raza and Justice Mulk are also rejoining the bench.   Besides deposed Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry, other deposed judges who are yet to be restored are Justice Khalil-ur-Rehman Ramday, Justice Raja Fayyaz Ahmed, Justice Falak Sher, Justice Chaudhry Ejaz Ahmed and Justice Ghulam Rabbani.   Deposed Justice Falak Sher is retiring tomorrow (Sunday) on attaining the age of superannuation. Justice Syed Jamshed Ali who has been reappointed recently is also due to retire on September 30. Reacting to the latest appointments, anti-government lawyers have condemned the PPP regime for reappointing the judges through a selective criterion, which they dubbed as "unconstitutional and unacceptable".   Spokesman of deposed Chief Justice Athar Minullah has also called the reappointed judges as "al-Faida group". Justice Retired Tariq Mehmood, the kingpin of lawyers' movement for restoration of judges, however, said it was another disappointing day for the whole of Pakistan. "I don't want to personally castigate the reappointed judges but it was sad that a police government was walking on the footsteps of a military dictator", Tariq regretted. Law Minister Farook H Naek on the other hand has requested his brother lawyers not to play politics over the reappointment of judges. Naek has said the PPP government was fast fulfilling its commitment of restoring deposed judges. With the fresh appointments, the total number of judges in the Supreme Court has risen to 23 against a total capacity of 29 judges, a strength recently approved by the Parliament in money bill when the PPP and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz were together ruling the country under a coalition.
