Chaudhry Aitazaz Ahsan, a prominent figure in Pakistani politics and the legal fraternity, has made a passionate call for the supremacy of law and the Constitution in a recent video clip that has gone viral on social media.

In the clip, Ahsan urges like-minded lawyers to assemble before the Supreme Court of Pakistan on a daily basis, in what appears to be a bid to uphold the rule of law and defend the Constitution.

Ahsan's plea has garnered widespread attention, with many Pakistan Tehreeke-Insaf (PTI) workers sharing the clip on social media platforms in a bid to rally support from the general public and the legal community.

Ahsan's stature as a respected legal expert and political figure makes his call for action particularly significant, and his message has resonated with many who share his commitment to upholding the principles of justice and the rule of law.

As the video continues to circulate online, it remains to be seen whether Ahsan's call to action will inspire a groundswell of support among the legal community and the public at large. However, his message serves as a powerful reminder of the importance of defending the Constitution and upholding the rule of law in a society that is facing numerous challenges and uncertainties.

A conspiracy to create division among the judges of Pakistan's apex court has come to light, with Chaudhry Aitazaz Ahsan allegedly playing a central role in the plan. This scheme aims to create disunity between the bar and bench, further exacerbating polarization and disharmony in all segments of society.

Many have pointed out that this scheme bears striking similarities to the Lawyers Movement, a campaign to restore the judiciary, particularly then Chief Justice of Pakistan Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry, who himself was a Provisional Constitutional Order (PCO) judge. The movement was a rallying cry for the rule of law in the country.

However, despite the movement's initial success in restoring Iftikhar Chaudhry as the chief justice of Pakistan, it dissipated suddenly without any clear future strategy. Now, it appears that some of the same individuals who were involved in the Lawyers Movement may be behind this new scheme to create division among judges.

The repercussions of such a scheme could be far-reaching and detrimental to Pakistan's legal system and society as a whole. It is crucial for all stakeholders to remain vigilant and work towards a more united and just future. As this story continues to develop, it remains to be seen how those involved will respond to these allegations and what actions will be taken to safeguard the integrity of the judiciary and the rule of law in Pakistan.

Chaudhry Aitazaz Ahsan's role in the Lawyers Movement has been a topic of controversy among Pakistan's legal community and political leadership. His actions during the movement, including a meeting between Chaudhry Iftikhar and Asif Ali Zardari, have been scrutinized, and his character has been viewed with suspicion.

In the aftermath of the movement, Ahsan was reportedly on the verge of leaving the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) due to feeling ignored by the party leadership. However, at the death anniversary of Shaheed Benazir Bhutto, Mr. Zardari gave Ahsan a platform to speak at Garhi Khuda Bukhsh, leading Ahsan to change his mind and renew his pledge to remain loyal to the party.

Despite this show of loyalty, Ahsan's controversial past continues to follow him, with many questioning his true motives and allegiances. As Pakistan's legal and political landscape continues to evolve, it remains to be seen what role Ahsan will play in shaping the country's future.

Chaudhry Aitazaz Ahsan, a well-known figure in Pakistan's legal and political circles, has come under scrutiny for his apparent double standards. Despite providing legal services to Nawaz Sharif in the past, Ahsan has been openly opposing the PPP's negotiations with the PML-N on certain political issues.

Ahsan's love for Imran Khan, who was removed from the post of prime minister through a no-confidence motion, has seemingly increased significantly since then. He has moved from making statements in favour of Khan to demonstrating his support.

Many have questioned Ahsan's motivations for supporting Khan and the Chief Justice of Pakistan, given that he is still affiliated with the PPP. Some speculate that he is trying to draw the attention of his party leadership through these political stunts. However, it remains to be seen whether Ahsan's efforts will succeed in meeting his ulterior motives. The controversy surrounding his actions has once again brought the issue of political allegiances and double standards to the forefront of Pakistani politics.
