 Supreme Court of Pakistan
The Court has a number of de jure powers which are outlined in the Constitution of Pakistan as well as de facto powers which many have considered remarkable given the nation's history of military rule during which part or all of the constitution has been suspended.
The de jure powers of the court as outlined in the Constitution must be seen in the context of Pakistani political history during which the army has seized power, declared martial law and suspended the constitution.
Pakistani legal theorists have posited that Pakistan's grundnorm, the basis for its Constitutional convention and system of laws, continues in effect (and the Supreme Court therefore retains its authority) even when the written constitution is suspended by the imposition of a military dictablanda.

Pakistan has lost national consensus for many reasons but the big reason is that it has not been able to defeat India within a reasonable period of time.
If Pakistan can create a strong lobby and a climate of opinion in India that realizes the benefits of growing friendly cooperation with Pakistan and if it is more conducive to achieving their other objectives, they may sanction paying a price in Kashmir.
Pakistan's India policy has been flawed: that there is no military solution to the Kashmir imbroglio is a conclusion that was arrived at after 1965 and 1971 Wars, though for a time only.

 India - The Constitution
It is distinguished from many Western constitutions, however, in its elaboration of principles reflecting the aspirations to end the inequities of traditional social relations and enhance the social welfare of the population.
The constitution provides for three categories of emergencies: a threat by "war or external aggression" or by "internal disturbances"; a "failure of constitutional machinery" in the country or in a state; and a threat to the financial security or credit of the nation or a part of it.
Among its constitutional powers are approval and removal of members of the Council of Ministers, amendment of the constitution, approval of central government finances, and delimitation of state and union territory boundaries (see State Governments and Union Territories, this ch.).
