Judicial crisis in Pakistan started when former president Mr. Pervez Musharraf filed a petition against the chief justice of Pakistan Mr. Iftikhar Chaudhary. This action resulted in the movement initiated by all lawyers in Pakistan who stood against Musharraf and demanded restoration of suspended judges. This created instability in the country. The other political parties also supported the judges and resulted in various activities such as long march, country wide protests, political unrest, suspension of overall judiciary functions etc. Many of the analysts view the judicial crisis as one of the major reasons for the downfall and resignation of Musharraf. This crisis resulted in decline in investment and bad image of the country.Now with the new democratic government, almost all the judges other than suspended Chief justice Iftikhar Chaudhary are restored.
