The court disqualified Gilani two months after finding him guilty for contempt of court after the former premier refused to press corruption charges against President Asif Ali Zardari.
The conviction resulted in a token prison term that lasted only 32 seconds.
Many saw yesterdayâs events as yet another installment of the battle taking place between the countryâs top institutions.
Church leaders hailed the courtâs decision, yet warned that democracy itself is under threat.
âIt is a good decision; he should have resigned before. The whole country is suffering. The economy has crashed, the energy situation is worse and targeted killings continue on a daily basis,â said Father Samson Shukardin, Hyderabad diocese's vicar general.
âWe respect the decision irrespective of our personal views,â said Father Emmanuel Yousaf Mani, national director of the Catholic bishopsâ National Commission for Justice and Peace.
âThe government should select a new premier quickly and all parties should unite for the survival of democracy, which we achieved after a long struggle. Failure to do so will cause anarchy,â he said.
âWe are in a state of turmoil and the poor are desperately waiting for relief.â
