PostSubject: Traubles in Pakistan   November 6th 2007, 5:05 pm

LAHORE, Pakistan (CNN) -- The United States has urged
Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf to sever his links with the
military and reinstate civilian rule.

Police confront lawyers protesting aginst the state of emergency in Lahore on Monday.

"Our hope is that he will restore democracy as quickly as possible," U.S. President George W. Bush said Monday after a White House meeting with Turkey's prime minister. Musharraf's government will discuss a timetable for parliamentary elections Tuesday, Pakistan Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz said in a a report from The Associated Press. Aziz made the comments as the U.S. and other Western allies stepped up pressure on the army chief to return to the path of democracy. Some said they were reviewing aid to the Muslim nation.

Musharraf suspended the constitution last Saturday ahead of a Supreme Court ruling on whether his recent re-election as president was legal. Bush urged Musharraf to hold parliamentary elections as originally scheduled in
January. But there did not appear to be a unified position among senior government officials on when the vote should be held.

Pakistan's attorney general said it would take place as scheduled, but then conceded there was a chance of delay. Musharraf imposed emergency rule in Pakistan on Saturday, saying the suspension of his country's constitution was made necessary by the growing threat of terrorism and out-of-control judicial activism. By imposing a state of emergency, Musharraf suspended Pakistan's constitution and put elections that had been scheduled for January on indefinite hold. Press freedoms have been curbed and independent television stations taken off the air.

Bush said Monday he recognized the threat Musharraf faces from extremists, citing past attempts on Musharraf's life, but said the emergency measures "undermine democracy." "We expect there to be elections as soon as possible and that the president should remove his military uniform," Bush said. Musharraf is also Pakistan's military chief. Pakistan is a nuclear power and a key U.S. ally in the war on terror.

Senior U.S. officials said U.S. Ambassador to Pakistan Anne Patterson
and other senior ambassadors -- including Britain's -- met with Musharraf on Monday to raise Washington's concerns with the "heavy-handed" measures taken in Lahore, where police, wielding batons, clashed with lawyers and journalists Monday outside the courthouse.

Senior Pakistani officials said the figure of 1,500 detainees is an underestimate and that several thousand lawyers across the country of 160 million people have been detained. They added that police stations are packed with the detainees, forcing the government to use schools as temporary holding cells.

Political opposition figures have also been rounded up. Qazi Hussain Ahmad, president of the country's largest Islamic party, said he has been placed under house arrest. Ahmad, a prominent opposition leader and head of the Religious Party Alliance, is confined to his home in Lahore.

The Associated Press reported that Pakistan's opposition groups believe about 3,500 people are detained. Others under arrest include more than 60 members of former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto's Pakistan People's Party, a senior police official said. Bhutto's spokesman called Musharraf's declaration an "act of terror" against civil society and predicted it marked "the beginning of the end of Musharraf." Unlike other opposition leaders, Bhutto remains free and her spokesman denied reports she may have struck a deal with Musharraf. He said Musharraf "would face a severe backlash" if he
arrested Bhutto. Bhutto condemned the arrests of her party members at a news conference Monday in Karachi and said she will head to Islamabad on Wednesday for a meeting of Pakistan's opposition parties. She also called on world leaders to put pressure on the Pakistani president to reinstate the constitution.

Britain called on Pakistan's government to release all political prisoners detained under the emergency. A spokesman for Prime Minister Gordon Brown said Britain is reviewing its aid program to Pakistan, worth $493 million over the next three years.

Pakistani Interior Minister Aftab Ahmed Khan Sherpao said elections would not be held until "things become normal." While Musharraf said the suspension of the constitution was made necessary by the growing threat of terrorism and out-of-control judicial activism, opponents said Musharraf was trying to avoid a Supreme Court decision expected in the coming days possibly ruling him ineligible for the presidential term he just won.

The United States postponed a Pentagon official's visit to Pakistan this week for a yearly meeting with his Pakistani defense counterpart. Opposition parties had petitioned the Supreme Court to declare Musharraf ineligible for a third term as president because he remains the head of the country's military.

Sana tulad rin ng Pakistan matuto tayonhg habulin ang mga pinuno natin na gumawa ng mali sa Bayan. Tularan natin sila na kakasuhan ang mga Lider kahit wala na sa puwesto.

Sa atin kasi napatunayan na nagkasala pinatatawad agad kasi dating presidente. Pasaway talaga.

I don't agree with what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it. - Voltaire
