To revolt is a natural tendency of life. Even a worm turns against the foot that crushes it. In general, the vitality and relative dignity of an animal can be measured by the intensity of its instinct to revolt.

Musharraf will distort the Constitution before lifting Emergency

General (Retired) Musharraf is all set to issue three orders on Saturday or Sunday to lift the state of emergency and revive the Constitution, but not before pushing through several amendments to the basic document through his special PCO powers.

Highly placed sources said that legal experts in the Law Ministry have drafted relevant orders, which have been cleared by the authorities concerned.

The first order would pertain to Constitutional amendments, which have already been discussed at the highest level and approved by Constitutional experts.

The amendments would incorporate the establishment of a federal court in Islamabad to streamline the system pertaining to the superior judiciary.

The second order would deal with the revocation of the emergency order of November 3, and again the President would promulgate it.

The third order will provide the revival of the Constitution that was put in abeyance on November 3, but the restoration of the Constitution would come into effect with amendments.

Are we surprised that a dictator would do such a thing?
