Islamabad, Nov 4: Pakistani lawyers called for a countrywide strike tomorrow against the imposition of emergency rule by President Pervez Musharraf, a leading lawyer said.

''We are launching our struggle from tomorrow. Lawyers will be observing a strike tomorrow. We will be holding protests and boycotting courts,'' Hamid Ali Khan, former president of the Supreme Court Bar Association, told Reuters today.

A lawyers movement emerged as the vanguard of an anti-Musharraf campaign after the army chief suspended the country's top judge in March, in a move seen as an attack on the independence of the judiciary.
