The Supreme Court verdict came at a time when the country is facing serious economic problems and witnesses massive violent demonstrations against power shortages throughout Pakistan. Pakistan is apparently heading towards an all out civil war.

In Punjab, where many areas are without electricity for 12-18 hours a day, the violent protests have attacked the houses of several parliamentarians from the ruling Pakistan People's Party, accusing the party of indifference while the energy crisis mounts.   Punjab is home to more than half the country's 180 million people. Demonstrators also have burned and smashed up private property, cars, police stations and government offices.
