PBC calls for black day on May 12 carnage

ISLAMABAD – Pakistan Bar Council Vice Chairman Muhammad Ramzan Chaudhry has appealed the legal fraternity to observe a black day on Monday throughout Pakistan in condemnation of the carnage of May 12, 2007.

He has requested the members of the Bar as well as members of the civil society for observing nationwide black day on Monday. All bar associations throughout the country will hold protest meetings in their respective bar rooms to reiterate their condemnation of the tragic incident of May 12, 2007 when large scale killing of innocent citizens took place and numbers of lawyers were burnt alive in their offices.

The lawyers will hoist black flags at offices of their respective bar associations and would also hold protest meetings to strongly condemn the instigative conduct of the government of that time for letting the tragic incident to happen and inaction of successive governments to hold high-level inquiry for fixing responsibility and bringing the culprits to book and awarding them punishment under the law.
