Islamabad, April 26 (IANS) Microblogging site Twitter was abuzz soon after Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani was convicted Thursday by the Supreme Court. A tweet said: "We need to respect & protect democratic values, not the individuals."


Maleeha Manzoor tweeted that Gilani appeared before the court, "respecting the judiciary and constitution, like a democratic chief executive".


Gilani was Thursday morning convicted for contempt of court by the Supreme Court that gave him a 30-second symbolic sentence for refusing to write to Swiss authorities to reopen a corruption case against President Asif Ali Zardari.


Shabbir Hussain Imam spoke up against dynastic politics, tweeting: "Pakistan May Allah protect Pakistan from dynasties. We need to respects & protect democratic values, not the individuals."


Saad Khan was quite critical when he alleged: "President Zardari to reward PM Gilani by gifting him one of his Swiss Bank Accounts."


Chahat tweeted a couplet to drive home the point: "Iss Dour K Rasam Rawajo se,Insaaf K Pehre Darun Se,Khoon Se Lipti Adalat Se..Baghi Hon Mein Baghi Hon Ju Chahe Muj pe Zulm karo".


Morial Shah, however, felt that people will now decide on the Gilani government, saying: "History and the court of the people will vindicate #FightForPakistaniDemocracy".
