Abstract

Lawyer’s movement galvanized the all circles of the society due to its multidimensional aspects; the lawyer’s movement was unique as compared to other movements in our political and constitutional history. Undoubtedly, the lawyers were the torch bearer of this movement but the success of the lawyer’s movement would be dependent upon the support it received from the civil society and the media of Pakistan. When chief justice was sacked, the legal community from all over the country started peaceful, non-violent and selfless struggle for the independence of judiciary and rule of law which was supported massively by civil society and projected by vibrant media.
