Justice Markandey Katju: Terrible times are coming to Pakistan

Justice Markandey Katju writes: Strictly speaking, elections should have been held in early November 2023 as mandated by Article 224(4) of Pakistan’s Constitution, but we need not go into that. The Pakistan Constitution is more followed in its breach, and is often consigned to the dustbin. All opinion polls indicate that former Prime Minister Imran Khan’s Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) party enjoys support of about 90% Pakistanis, and will sweep the polls if there are free and fair elections.

Justice Markandey Katju: Happy Birthday, Captain Imran Khan

Justice Markandey Katju writes: Today, October 5, is the 71st birthday of former Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan, who lies incarcerated in a tiny, dingy cell in Adiala jail, having been imprisoned since early August. On this occasion, I wish to salute him. I do not know Imran Khan, have never met him, am not his friend or relative, and do not belong to his caste, religion, or nationality.
