Supreme Court's judicial activism now seeks another victim : Raja Pervez Ashraf

By Yasser Latif Hamdani

I hold no brief for the Prime Minister of Pakistan. He may be completely corrupt. However I do have a problem with our Supreme Court ordering his arrest when a bunch of hooligans have laid siege to the capital.  In other news- Karachi Stock Exchange crashed - you guessed it- as a result of this ill-timed and ill-advised order by the Supreme Court.

In Pakistan nothing is unscripted. That is our tragedy. Powers that be have scripted our decline through out. Now see as we fall to yet another depth of national humiliation and ignominy.

Judicial Activism may have been coined to describe US Supreme Court's eagerness to protect and expand the civil rights of US citizens, but in Pakistan Judicial Activism will prove to be the death knell of our state.
