So, here’s the deal:
Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry, the Chief Justice of Pakistan (“non-functional”), will address the Lahore Bar Association tomorrow at 5 PM.
He is travelling by road, in virtual defiance of the veiled threats by the Government (worded as an inability to guarantee his security).
Apparently, when he last went to Peshawar, the 2.5 – 3 hour journey took him 9 hours!
So, realistically, given that at least two other cities along the way plan to honour him, he probably won’t get to Lahore before 6 or 7 PM.
The current plan of the political parties is to gather together at the Data Durbaar chowk by 5 PM.
See if you can make it.
