Yusuf Raza Gilani

The State of Limbo

Yusuf Raza Gilani’s imprisonment on a contempt of court charge lasted a little over 30 seconds, the conviction was enough to set off a legal and political firestorm. Gilani’s defiance is pure political bluster, he will be history sooner rather than later. With his legal status as PM in limbo, Pakistan also remains in a state in limbo. Clearly not comfortable or his usual confident self, Aitzaz Ahsan is going through the motions expected of him as Gilani’s defence counsel. Grappling with one’s conscience as opposed to the responsibility towards one’s client is always a lawyer’s dilemma. Once a client’s brief is accepted, notwithstanding any reservations about duty towards a client being in conflict with moral convictions, the counsel must staunchly plead the case of the client, or at least make a credible pretense of doing so.

Today at Davos

Despite dire predictions about continuity as PM due to the unbecoming shooting off his mouth that has left even his coalition allies aghast, Yusuf Raza Gilani is gracing the World Economic Forum (WEF) Annual Summit 2012 at Davos, coincidentally the man who could well replace him in the future as the PM of Pakistan is also in town. The Davos Summit is mostly participated in by leading world celebrities in govt, business or industry, academics, NGOs, sports, philanthropy, entertainment, media, etc. Imran Khan has been invited in his own right by the WEF. At least 75-100 Heads of State or Government come to the Summit, many countries send their Foreign, Finance, Trade ministers etc. Pakistan has been represented by the President or the PM for over 20 years, in 2010 Gilani came to DAVOS as the PM. Asif Ali Zardari declined his turn in 2011. No second guesses about the US$ 60 million question as to why Switzerland is a no-go area for our President.
