LAHORE - Major political parties have expressed concerns over the disqualification of Mian Nawaz and Shahbaz Sharif and imposition of Governor Rule in Punjab, saying that the steps could prove dangerous for the democratic set-up. The leadership of mainstream political and religious parties rejected the Supreme Court verdict and imposition of Governor Rule, asking public to come out on roads to record protest in a peaceful way. Rejecting the court decision and imposition of Governor Rule, Ameer Jamat-e-Islami Qazi Hussain Ahmed said the beneficiary of National Reconciliation Order (NRO) got decision of his liking from fake SC. He urged the people to remain peaceful while protesting against the unjustified court decision so that no one could intervene on the excuse of unrest. "Military is still strong and influential. The protest should be peaceful as the military could take benefits from the situation", Qazi said. He said the long march and sit-in protest would be peaceful. He said the government would be responsible if it tried to create hurdles and used force to stop people from peaceful protest demonstration. Addressing a hurriedly called press conference here at Mansoora, he said the decision of the SC had brought a dramatic change in the political scenario. Liaquat Baloch and Mian Maqsood Ahmed were also present. Qazi said the PCO judges announced judgment only to please their masters, without taking into account the aftermath of the decision. Expressing solidarity with Sharifs and lawyers movement, he said that full participation in the long march and sit-in was the only solution of the prevailing crises. He said the court judgment had proved that the PML-N's decision of contesting election of Feb 18, 2008 was wrong. He said the situation would have been different if the PML-N had boycotted the election and supported the APDM movement. Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (F) Chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman said he disagree the court decision. "It is public and not the court that should take decisions about politicians." He stressed upon the need of remaining peaceful and not crossing the limit so that the undemocratic forces could not take benefit from the situation. PML-Q President Ch Shujaat Hussain said the court decision should be respected. He said that his party would take decision after evaluating the situation. Secretary General PML-Q Mushahid Hussain Syed said the decision was not good for democracy. He stressed upon resolving issue in a democratic manner. He said that violence should be avoided, as it would further deteriorate the situation. Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf Chairman Imran Khan said that timing of the decision was significant. He said that Zardari managed the court decision due to fear of long march and sit-in. He said the decision could cause damage to democracy and the country. Former Foreign Minister Mian Khurshid Mahmood Kasuri expressed sorrow over the disqualification of Sharifs. He said the consequences would result in political instability at the time when the country was facing serious internal and external challenges. He stressed upon the need of unity among political forces to combat the situation. He said that even after the judgment of the SC, political forces could still find a way out. Jamiat Ulema-e-Pakistan President Dr Muhammad Zubair said that President Zardari had taken revenge from Sharifs for opposing NRO. He said that disqualification of Sharif brothers could prove dangerous for the democracy. He said President Zardari and the PPP would be responsible for worsening of the situation. ANP spokesman Zahid Khan said the decision came at a time when there was need of national reconciliation. He said that it was the right of the people and not any court to reject public representatives. He said the decision could prove fatal for democracy. He stressed upon the leadership of both the parties (PPP and PML-N) to avoid confrontation. He said people of Punjab had given mandate to the PML-N and it should be respected.
