Day to Day; Naeem Sadiq on The Speed of Justice, Mukhtaran Mai, and the Chief Justice

Here's the latest from Naeem Sadiq:
Day to Day

The Chief Justice's fresh petition that his case be heard on a 'day to day' basis has a historic significance. It is a personal acknowledgement by the highest Judge of the land that when an issue is really important, it must be heard on a 'day to day' basis. Thank you Mr. Chief Justice. We hope that you will soon be back on your seat, once again dispensing good justice to one and all. But may I remind you, that an equally important case of a woman who was gang raped on the orders of a 'Jirga' , is lying unheard in your court for the last two years. Her name is Mukhtaran Mai, and she too deserves a 'day to day' hearing.
