ISLAMABAD – A long controversy finally came to end as all the political parties on Friday extended the mandate of military courts for 18 months.
According to PakistanTribe correspondent, earlier the beginning of 2017 put an end to the controversial military courts due to the presence of ‘sunset clause’ in the amendment (for two years) but the wave of terrorism continue to surge, giving rise for the need of the new strategies.
The military courts were established after the gruesome terrorists attack on the Army Public School (APS) Peshawar, leading to coherently devising National Action Plan (NAP) by both the civilian and military leadership in order to eliminate the evil of terrorism in the country.
Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam (JUI-F) Chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman said that the need for military courts has arisen so as to eradicate terrorism from the country.
While talking to media, JUI-F Chief pointed out that seminaries of every school of thoughts in Pakistan are with the law, constitution and democracy, adding that bringing religion and state against each other is not in the interest of the nation.
However, Fazlur Rehman warned that controversial words regarding religions should not be made part of the law.
He said that, “We all are on ‘a single page’ for bringing peace and tranquility in the country. All the political parties are united for the prevalence of peace.”
