Friend of the dictators, enemy of the people!

Rulers of Pakistan now consider it as their right to break the law and this law breaking culture has permeated in all walks of life down to the masses. Justice Munir and Sharifuddin are responsible for “institutionalizing” the violation of constitution and creating the culture of might is right in Pakistan. They gave the dictators the legitimizing tools for making the constitution their handmaiden.
Here are some quotes from what has been written about Sharifuddin Pirzada:
“Every military regime that came into power by overthrowing democratically elected governments benefited from Pirzada’s legal expertise. He served a litany of dictators, from General Ziaul Haq to General (retd) Pervez Musharraf.” 
“He served as attorney general for former president Yahya Khan and his predecessor Ayub Khan, Pakistan’s first military ruler, whom he also served as foreign minister.
In 2014, he was the head of former president Pervez Musharraf’s defence team as the military ruler faced treason charges relating to his imposition of a state of emergency in 2007.
Pirzada himself wrote the legal order for Musharraf’s emergency rule, updating a similar one he prepared for Gen Ziaul Haq after his 1977 coup.” 
“On August 31, 1967, Ayub delivered himself of the following gem on Sharifuddin Pirzada, his foreign minister: “He is on the run in foreign countries most of the time and often purposelessly, is very suspicious by nature, has hardly any communication with the staff, chases small things most of the time and is frightened of taking a definite stand on any issue. There is also some suspicion that he is not above telling a lie. So I am in a fix as to what to do with him”. 
“he wrote oaths for judges sworn in by Zia and Musharraf that omitted the commitment to protect the constitution, and drew up documents based on the so-called “doctrine of necessity” to legalise both rulers’ coups.” 
“Mr. Pirzada is the lawyer for President Pervez Musharraf, who turned to him when he decided he would get rid of a Supreme Court that was threatening to derail his re-election for a second term. By Mr. Pirzadas account, delivered as he sat on a brocade-covered couch in his living room, he met with Mr. Musharraf and his cabinet on Nov. 2, the day before martial law was imposed.
“Syed Sharifuddin Pirzada, the top legal aide of the president and the architect of almost every PCO promulgated by dictators in the past, continues to enjoy the status of a federal minister in the present PPP-led coalition government.Though he was formally removed as senior adviser along with other advisers and special assistants of the past military regime in March, when Yousuf Raza Gilani took over as Prime Minister, Pirzada is still serving the present democratic regime as Ambassador at Large with the status of a federal minister.”
