Fakhruddin G. Ebrahim, TI born: February 12, 1928 is a retired Associate Judge of the Supreme Court of Pakistan, and Senior Advocate Supreme Court, and peace activist. Ebrahim also served as the interim Law Minister from 18 July 1993 until 19 October 1993, and interim Justice Minister from 5 November 1996 until 17 February 1997. He is well known as the former Attorney General of Pakistan during the democratic government of former Prime minister Zulfikar Ali Bhutto and served as his close legal adviser throughout the 1970s. In 1988, he was also Governor of Sindh, appointed by the former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto during her first term.

Ebrahim was born in 1928 in Ahmedabad, in the state of Gujarat, British India to a Gujarati Muslim family. In 1945, Ebrahim attended the Gujarat Vidyapith where he earned his LLB with distinctions in 1949. While there, Ebrahim studied courses on philosophy and also attended the lectures given by Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, which played an important role in his advocacy for non-violence. In 1950, Ebrahim moved to Pakistan and attended the Sindh Muslim Law College, where he earned an LLM and was awarded an honorary Juris Doctor in 1960. In 1961, Ebrahim established his own firm while he continued to lecture at the Sindh Law College. In 1971, Zulfikar Ali Bhutto appointed him Attorney General of Pakistan. In March 1981, serving as an ad hoc Judge of the Supreme Court of Pakistan, he refused to take a fresh oath, under the Provisional Constitutional Order (PCO) promulgated by General Zia-ul-Haq along with Justice Dorab Patel and Chief Justice Sheikh Anwarul Haq. The PCO not only negated the independence of the judiciary but also prolonged martial law by nullifying the effect of a judgement giving General Zia's regime limited recognition.

Ebrahim served as the Governor of Sindh from 19 April 1989 to 6 August 1990. He was preceded by Qadeeruddin Ahmed and succeeded by Mahmood A. Haroon. Ebrahim established the Citizen Police Liaison Committee (CPLC) in 1989. The CPLC works in Karachi and assists citizens in registering the First Information Report (FIR) if it is refused by police for some reason. In 1996, Ebrahim served as law minister in the caretaker cabinet of President Farooq Leghari, following the dismissal of the government of Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto. Ebrahim heads the law firm of Fakhruddin G. Ebrahim & Company, a general legal practice originally established in Bombay (now Mumbai), India. The firm relocated to Karachi in 1951. Ebrahim has had long-standing ties with the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB). In 1995, the PCB initiated an inquiry, under the chairmanship of Ebrahim, to look into allegations made by Australian players Shane Warne and Mark Waugh surrounding the First Test between Pakistan and Australia in Karachi in 1994 and the ODI in Rawalpindi. The Australian cricketers had accused Saleem Malik of offering them bribes which they rejected. The inquiry was frustrated as the Australian players did not travel to Pakistan to give evidence, and thus the Inquiry had to rely on their statements together with the cross examination of Saleem Malik. In October 1995, Ebrahim concluded the proceedings by saying "The allegations against Saleem Malik are not worthy of any credence and must be rejected as unfounded." In December 2006, Ebrahim also served as the Chairman of the PCB's Anti-doping Appeals Committee, which acquitted Shoaib Akhtar and Mohammad Asif. Ebrahim was in favour of the acquittal and said, "This appeal committee [therefore] holds that will not be deemed to have committed a doping offence ... The ban and punishment imposed by the earlier tribunal is hereby set aside as being contrary to the provision of laws.

The Parliamentary Committee on Appointment of the Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) on Monday developed consensus on the name of Justice (retd) Fakhruddin G. Ebrahim for the position of the CEC, (9 july 2012) Ebrahim’s name had been proposed by the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) in May. The PML-N had proposed the names of Justice Shakirullah Jan, Justice (R) Fakharuddin G. Ebrahim and Justice (R) Nasir Aslam Zahid for the post. The government had proposed the names of Justice (R) Munir A. Sheikh, Justice (R) Amirul Mulk Mengal and Justice (R) Zahid Qurban Alvi.

aoa i just wanted to suggest that if in the next elections if u can issue all of the election polling stuff except the ballot papers to the presiding offiocers........wont it'll be easy for u and for us also.the ballot papers can be issued jst the day before the election. if it seems suitable to u then the polling days should be divided all over pakistan,specially for karachi (sindh( and for the FATA areas.in this way more police ,rangers or army could be made available for these areas. i really pray heartily that may ALLAH pak bless PAKISTAN.may it lives long n may the best leaders be bestowed upon us.ameen
