Pakistan: A planned emergency

The Pakistani Spectator on a ‘planned emergency’. “If we take a look upon proceedings of post 9th March scenario, and analyze the situation deeply the question blinks in mind ‘Are we being headed towards a planned and engineered state of emergency’. In past eras, emergency in any country was declared due to agitation by the general public. This may be the first time the emergency (if declared) will be imposed to extract some favourable and desired results.”
