A week later, the judiciary is weakened and in disarray. Jails are overflowing with lawyers and activists. Fundamental human rights continue to be suspended. A general is still the president. The channels are off air, and will remain so till the Pakistan Broadcasters’ Association, and the various print journalism unions succumb to PEMRA’s demands. Laws are being amended, and politicians are either under house arrest or have gone underground. Students are protesting.
Pakistan is still in a state of emergency.
This is a nation that goes round and round in political circles.
