CJP wants end to imported PMs

Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry on Thursday said if parliamentarians were not prevented from holding dual nationality, the influx of imported prime ministers would continue.
A three-member bench headed by Chief Justice Chaudhry heard the proceedings of the dual nationality case. No one appeared before the court on behalf of MNA Farhat Mehmood and MPAs Nadia Gabol and Dr Ashraf.
Anwar Mansoor, the counsel for Rehman Malik, told the SC that they could not present nationality renouncement form because the British lawyer was on leave in Spain. The court said it has been asking for nationality renouncement form of Rehman Malik for the last 11 hearings. Petitioner Waheed Anjum presented evidence regarding dual nationalities of MPA Tariq Alona and MNA Zahid Iqbal by submitting photocopies of their passports. He said MPA Nadia Gabol and MPA Khadim Nazir also had British nationality. Waseem Sajjad, counsel for Farahnaz Ispahani, said lots of the overseas Pakistanis would be affected if the court continued to interpret in this particular fashion. The CJP said law allowed the general public to hold dual nationalities but it prevented parliamentarians from holding dual nationalities and they could not amend the constitution for interests of 10 to 15 people.

    If Pakistan is not good enough for them to be Pakistani nationals, then its shouldn't be good enough for them to be its parliamentarians. You can't be a national of one country and be making laws for another country. Just doesn't make sense. Just look at the case of the traitor haqqani. He was Pakistan's ambassador and getting paid 2 million dollars a year from US govt. Where do you think his loyalties were and where do you think he is today. Case closed.

    this must be done, in order to stop further Shokat Aziz’s, more A. Rehman Malik’s, Haqqani’s and Isphahani’z…..so on

    The logic is inescapable; People in the service of the state and privy to secret and vital information must be loyal ONLY to Pakistan and serve Pakistan's interests.

    No average citizen has access to sensitive data and none swear an oath of
    allegiance to Pakistan on obtaining a CNIC or passport. Perhaps we should have such an oath. But given the casual attitude to keeping your word in society today, would it be worth it?

    The fact is though that holding or not holding a passport of a foreign country is no indicator of a possible traitor. Memogate is the tip of the ice berg, I am sure

    These dual colored rodents skim the nations wealth on one hand and pass information
    to their alien masters to maintain their foreign citizenship.This action by Supreme Court full bench should come into action.

    It;s not possible for a person to be loyal to two countries at the same time. It's even against the oath they take when becoming the citizen of some country.

    It is a strange paradox while Pakistan welcomes money remitted from Pakistani.s holding dual nationalties it debars them from being elected. Their remittances are crucial for our economy.
    Haqqani is not a traitor.He served his master as Gilani did. Haqqani may have been lobyist for USA but traitor he is not. We have enough of them in Pakistan itself.
