    26/11 case: Lashkar camps' photos among evidences given to Pakistan court

    ISLAMABAD: Photographs of Lashkar-e-Taiba training camps in Sindh and motorboats used by the 10 terrorists who attacked Mumbai are among evidence presented to an anti-terrorism court conducting the trial of seven Pakistanis charged with involvement in the 2008 strikes.

    Officials of the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) presented the evidence to anti-terrorism court judge Chaudhry Habib-ur-Rehman during a hearing conducted behind closed doors in Adiala Jail in Rawalpindi on Saturday.

    The FIA officials presented photographs of the LeT training camps and motorboats to the judge.

    The motorboats and other items, currently in the custody of the FIA custody, were recovered in January 2009, media reports said on Sunday. The articles presented by the FIA officials were made part of the judicial record after an initial examination by the judge.

    The FIA officials told the court that the terrorists involved in the attacks trained in the Arabian Sea on boats named Al-Hussaini, Al-Atta and Al-fouz.

    They also trained in LeT camps in Mirpur Sakro area of Thatta district in Sindh and Yousaf Goth and Landhi areas of Karachi, the officials said. These training camps covered an area ranging between 25 acres and 48 acres, the officials said.

    One of the seven suspects currently on trial, Hammad Amin Sadiq, had confessed that the 10 attackers had been kept in the training camps before being sent to Mumbai, the officials said. Sadiq acted as a facilitator for the attackers while they were in Sindh, the officials said.

    Among the seven Pakistani suspects is also Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi, the LeT's operations commander.

    Special Prosecutor Chaudhry Zulifqar Ali had told PTI on Saturday that the FIA officials recorded their statements and provided details of 350 articles found in the LeT training camps, including life jackets and a "pink foam" or pink coloured packaging material.

    The "pink foam" has emerged as a crucial piece of evidence in investigations of the Mumbai attacks on both sides of the border. Indian investigators found samples of the material at three sites where attackers planted bombs in Mumbai in November 2008.

    Samples of the "pink foam" were also found in the boat used by the attackers to travel to Mumbai and in a rucksack used by Ajmal Kasab, the lone surviving attacker who was hanged in Pune's Yerawada jail last month.

    In Pakistan, sleuths found the pink foam at the LeT training camps in Sindh.

    Special prosecutor Ali requested the court yesterday for an early disposal of the high-profile case, saying it had been unnecessarily delayed. He noted that anti-terrorism courts in Punjab had begun hearing even ordinary terrorism cases on a daily basis but the high-profile Mumbai case was still being heard only once a week.

    The judge remarked that hearings were being fixed according to the availability of the defence lawyers, who were not available for daily hearings.

    The next hearing of the case is scheduled for December 22.

    *****************************************

    The truth will be out.

    But the Pakistani Judiciary is afraid that they will be slaughtered by the very LeT!

    And the CJ is taken by many in Pakistan to be a punk!

    What justice can be expected when the ex CJ does an honour killing himself!

    Ex-CJ Abdul Hameed Dogar kills his own daughter in the name of Honour

    The Chief Justice of Pakistan Abdul Hameed Dogar has killed his own daughter Farah Dogar in the name of Honour. And right now he is roaming freely on the streets of Islamabad in his bullet proof BMW with the full support and backing of his long time friend and ally, Asif Ali Zardari. The President of Pakistan has assured him that no harm would come to him and has proved this by ensuring a total media blackout of the news. But the most surprising thing is that even the Western media is not running the story. WHY? Even when a small village girl in the remotest valleys of Swat or barren lands of Choolistan is harmed the news becomes an overnight sensation on both local and international media. But now when the upholders of the law and justice have flauntingly ravaged the life of poor Farah Dogar, there is absolutely not a single word being uttered. Then what about the human rights organisations, NGOs, women’s rights activists. Where are they? What are they waiting for? Do they also only go after soft targets? It is only now upon us, the public to spread the news of the fate of the poor young lady who was a victim of honour killing only because she married against the wishes of her family. We must spread the news before the killers get the time to chop up the dead body of the poor girl into thousands of tiny pieces and feed them to the dogs. And, if there is no dead body, then there is no case in Pakistan.

    I will now tell you the story of the young couple. It was a fine sunny afternoon when I came across a young couple in the streets of Islamabad. The boy was handsome, nearly 6 and a half feet tall and she barely managed to reach his shoulders with high heels but had her womanly charms and the couple seemed perfect for each other. I noticed that the two were pleading to the crowd of people and no one paying heed. I might have dismissed them as a new breed of beggars but their get-up and attitude said otherwise. Curiosity got the better of me and I tried to skim through the crowd to see what the commotion was all about. As I neared the couple I heard the girl weeping and begging the crowd for anyone’s help to be a witness for their wedding. Obviously, the two were going for court marriage and required witness signatures, but the reluctance of everyone from such a huge crowd was puzzling, which became obvious next second when I heard the girl’s name: Farah Dogar. It clicked with a flash that she was none other but the Farah Dogar of FSc Marks infamy. She was crying that they were short of one witness but no one dared to help them, knowing fully well that she was the daughter of the Chief Justice of Pakistan who also happened to be the best friend of Asif Ali Zardari. I couldn’t stand the plight of the young couple and decided to help them. I quickly walked to the couple and pulled them out of the crowd which clearly had nothing better to do than get a quick-fix and pass their time. I got the two into my car and agreed to sign as a witness if they would tell me their story.
    Their story was as simple as it gets – boy meets girl, the two fall in love and girl’s father disapproves. There have been countless movies made both in Bollywood and Lollywood on the exactly same story. The two had met while they were studying in the university. The boy, Zeeshan although had the credentials for a model, also belonged to a well-off family. His father was a Federal Secretary and had been a close confidante of the President Musharraf. Zeeshan’s family, although had no objection to the marriage, had been trying to convince him not to pursue Farah, however, they were not giving him any stiff resistance. Farah’s family on the other hand was a completely different story. Her father had openly threatened to get Zeeshan killed if Farah didn’t stop seeing him. And he might have already done so, if Zeeshan hadn’t been the son of a Federal Secretary. Zeeshan then told me that his father was an honest officer and his family did not have fortune other than the government allotted plot. Thus in his opinion it was his middle-classness which was the hindrance. I smiled at the innocence of the boy in these matters. Turning a middle-classer into an ultra-rich-classer is a matter of months in this country, if really warranted. It was not his father’s middle-classness but Chief Justice Abdul Hameed Dogar’s feudal lordness which was the reason. Chief Justice Abdul Hameed Dogar is one of the biggest landlords of Pakistan and he would rather kill his daughter than to marry him to someone outside the family for the fear of losing part of the family land, no matter how paltry that might be. It was the centuries old tradition that the land must remain within the family, whatever the cost to the females might be.

    I tried to explain to the couple that if they went ahead with the marriage, the Chief Justice of Pakistan, Abdul Hameed Dogar would have them killed. And he would have full support of his long time friend Asif Ali Zardari. However, the couple was of the view that if they were to marry they would be safe as in this case Farah’s share of the property would go to Zeeshan in case she is killed and in case both are killed the property would automatically go to Zeeshan’s family. Thus Chief Justice Abdul Hammed Dogar and his family wouldn’t dare touch the two, out of the fear of completely loosing Farah’s property. In their innocent minds they had a fool proof plan. I couldn’t argue with their logic, but unfortunately, things in Pakistan do not follow logic.

    Oh, how I lament that moment when I gave in to their incessant pleading and signed the marriage certificate as a witness. Afterwards, I took them to my lawyer and got them registered, something which was not easy, because of Farah Dogar’s father’s reputation. No one in Pakistan wants to mess with a Chief Justice of Pakistan. However, I was able to get the process finished in a typical Pakistani fashion. Seemingly, money helps overcome all the fears. At the end of the day I gave the couple my card and advised them to keep in touch and apprise me of any incidents.

    A couple of days later I was invited by the couple. They had arranged a meeting of their close friends to discuss their next move. They hadn’t told anyone that they had gotten married. When I arrived, I found it unsurprising to find the children of the elitist gentry sitting there. From the daughter of a Lieutenant General to the son of a business tycoon were all there. Everyone in the gathering was of the view that the couple should take the first flight out of the country and disappear for good. And I agreed.

    Today morning when I received a phone call at 5am, I had an eerie feeling that it wouldn’t be good. It was from one of Farah’s friends, daughter of a media tycoon. Her message was brief. The couple was caught while trying to board a flight. Their names had been put on Exit Control List. Farrah was killed by the hands of her father two hours after capture, while Zeeshan has been confined to the darkest corners of the infamous jail. Zeeshan’s family members have been threatened with death and President Asif Ali Zardari, who had first helped his old friend by putting the names of the innocent couple on the Exit Control List has now put his whole might behind imposing a total media blackout in Pakistan. She said that the media bosses have been threatened with such dire consequences that not a single newspaper or news channel is willing to run the story – the biggest story of HONOUR KILLING – of the century.

    And now, unless we the public do something, no one would ever know the fate of poor Farah Dogar. And then what about Zeeshan, who is still alive at the time I am writing this for the world.

    O you NGOs, civil rights advocates, international media, bloggers, tweeters will anyone help the soul of Farah Dogar? Will anyone take this darkest of all atrocities to the echelons of justice? O will anyone come forward to ensure this crime is not buried along with the body of Farah the Martyr?

    The Chief Justice of Pakistan

    His only weaknesses it is believed was a heightened degree of haughtiness and a weakness for fancy official cars, but then these are very common failings among officialdom in Pakistan, a country where every general is driven in a Mercedes.

    In the CJ’s defence it ought to be said that the post of Chief Justice is comparable to that of his constitutional associates - the prime minister and president. And for my part I would not begrudge any chief justice a fleet of Rolls Royces if in return he improved the rule of law and the quality of justice in Pakistan.

    There is also now a Musharraf-orchestrated complaint that the CJ’s son Dr Arsalan Iftikhar was appointed to a government post that he was unqualified to hold...

    Now to the amazement of most Pakistani citizens we discover that our Chief Justice was summoned to and later confined in the Army House, Rawlapindi, like some recalcitrant schoolboy and browbeaten for over five hours by Musharraf and his minions - including Shaukat Aziz and ‘two senior PML(Q) party members’ – who all badgered him to tender his resignation. The CJ resisted these bullyboy tactics and refused to bow to this pressure.

    Some seven hours later the CJ, it appears, was reluctantly released, but when he tried to return to his office at the Supreme Court, he was stopped on the road by a police superintendent and forcibly escorted by an official posse which drove him directly to his residence. By doing so, the regime unwittingly revealed to all that a police superintendent can have more legal powers in Musharraf’s Pakistan than the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court.

    And so to the present. While there has been no official order of ‘arrest’ or ‘detention’, the CJ continues to be detained in his residence, which remains surrounded by police. His phones have been cut and he has been prevented from communicating with anyone, including members of his family.

    In the meantime Musharraf and his underlings continue to blather on about the unquestioned legality of his action. As the lawyer Anees Jillani points out in today’s Dawn that under articles 209 (4) and 209 (6) of our much tampered Constitution:

    The president, if he comes to know about a judge’s alleged misconduct through information received from the SJC or from any other source, can ask the Council to “inquire into the matter” to determine whether the judge is guilty of the charge…After inquiring into the matter, the Council shall report to the president as to whether the judge has been found to be guilty of misconduct, and it shall be the Council that will advise the president as to whether the judge should be removed from office. If so advised, the president may remove the judge.

    Opposition leader Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan has stated that the detained CJ is now under tremendous pressure of intelligence agency officials who are demanding his resignation.

    According to told Dawn:

    [Nisar Ali Khan] said the Chief Justice House was swarming with intelligence officials and the CJP, along with his family members, were confined to one room. He said even his house in Quetta had also been sealed.

    In your Blogger’s view Musharraf arrogantly believed that he would have no difficulty in getting the CJ’s resignation. Sadly for him the CJ has proved to be man of sturdier character.
    ____________________________________________

    Having failed to get the CJ to resign the dictator has sailed into uncharted constitutional waters by sending a reference against the CJ to the Supreme Judicial Council after having unlawfully detained him.

    Unfortunately the judges of the Supreme Court have a poor track record of standing by beleaguered colleagues. We will soon see what stuff the present lot of judges are made of, particular those currently sitting on the Supreme Judicial Council

    If Musharraf can brutalise and unlawfully detain the constitutional head of Pakistan’s judicial system just imagine what he can do any ordinary citizen of the country.

    God help us!
