The Lyallpur Case

WE have already congratulated the authorities concerned upon their just and statesmanlike action against the three Lyallpur pleaders. The action is, indeed, a true evidence of the working of the spirit of conciliation in high places, one of the truest we have seen so far. If this spirit is faithfully adhered to, and the policy foreshadowed both in the reductions recently made in the more important martial law sentences and in the present action is carried to its logical consequences, we have not the smallest doubt that the normal relations between the Government and the public will speedily return. What precise measures the Government should take we have already ventured to indicate.
