Los Angeles, California: Friends of Pakistan has expressed concerned “at what's taking place in regard to the suspension of Chief Justice Iftikhar Mohammad Chaudhry, which has set off immense controversy and threatens to spiral into a constitutional crisis.” In a press release, the FOP President Sarfaraz Khan has stated: We would like to see this matter settled in a peaceful manner and within the constitution of Pakistan as soon as possible.
“Secondly, Friends of Pakistan also supports the freedom of the press and electronic media and we condemn the government for the police raid on the Geo TV Bureau in Islamabad and stoppage of one of its programs. The Government must find those who were involved in this planned attack and bring them to book.
