PESHAWAR " In the wake of a consensus between the NWFP Government and the banned Tehrik Nifaz Shariah Mohammadi (TNSM) headed by Maulana Sufi Mohammad regarding judicial system, the former announced an end to every sort of un-Islamic acts with immediate effect. Expressing satisfaction over the consensus with the banned Tehrik Nifaz Shariah Mohammadi (TNSM) Chief Minister Amir Haider Khan Hoti said, "There is nothing new in the proposed Shariah Regulations but amendments suggested in 1994 and 1999 regulations." He also said that maximum emphasis was being laid on the implementation of already framed laws according to the constitution. Similar views were expressed by the representatives of the banned TNSM and other politico-religious forces. The agreement signed by the two sides was made public during a press conference here at Frontier House Peshawar on Monday. In the presence of Chief Minister Amir Haider Khan Hoti, Information Minister Mian Iftikhar Hussain read the text of the declaration before the media persons. Besides others Pakistan Peoples Party Parliamentary leader Syed Zahir Ali Shah, Provincial Senior Ministers Rahim Dad Khan and Bashir Ahmad Bilour, Forest Minister Wajid Ali Khan, Finance Minister Engineer Humayoon Khan and several others were also present on the occasion. Before making it public, the text of the declaration was thoroughly discussed in a well-attended Jirga held with Chief Minister Amir Haider Khan Hoti in the chair. The Jirga along with elected parliamentarians including federal and provincial ministers from all over Malakand region, was also attended by leading figures from most of the political forces except Jamaat Islami as its leaders were on boycott. Amongst them were present Senator Maulana Sami Ul Haq chief of his faction Jamiat Ul Ulema Islam along with ex-MNA Maulana Hamid Ul Haq, Senator Maulana Gul Naseeb Khan and Senator Maulana Rahat Hussain of JUI (F), former Federal Minister and Provincial President of Pakistan Muslim League (QA) Engineer Amir Muqam, PML (N) Sahibzada Sabir Shah, Pakistan Peoples Party (Sherpao) Sikandar Hayat Khan Sherpao and Bakht Baider Khan. A majority of the leaders from both ANP and PPP from all over Malakand were visible in the Jirga. The text of the declaration, as read out by the NWFP Information Minister revealed that the judicial system in Malakand would be in accordance with the Shariah Mohammadi as prescribed in Fiqqah (Islamic Jurisprudence). The sources of Fiqqah (Islamic Jurisprudence) are Quran, Sunna, Ijma and Analogy and there will not be any decision against it. An appellate court (Dar Ul Quza) known as Sharia Appellate Bench will be established at Divisional (Malakand) level and its decision will be final. The implementation of the Shariah judicial system will be made all over Malakand Division and Kohistan District of Hazara will be included after return of peace with consultation of Maulana Sufi Mohammad. In this respect, an appeal was made to Maulana Sufi Mohammad to call off his "peaceful protest" and extend cooperation to the government in return of peace in the whole of Malakand Division. The declaration on behalf of Government is signed by provincial ministers Mian Iftikhar Hussain, Syed Zahir Ali Shah, Haji Hidayat Ullah Khan and Engineer Humayoon Khan, Secretary Home and Tribal Affairs Fayaz Khan Toru and Secretary Law Mohammad Farooq Sarwar. Maulana Mohammad Ali Naib Amir, Badshah Sarwar member of Shura and Amir Ezzat Khan spokesman represented the banned Tehrik Nifaz Shariah Mohammadi in the agreement. Terming the consensus between the government and Maulana Soofi Mohammad as historic, the Chief Minister said that it was endorsed and accepted by most of the political forces. He was of the view that this decision was in line with the wishes and expectations of the people from Malakand Division as there was a vacuum since long. In this respect, he reminded that this part of the province was merged in the country in 1969 and its people were uncomfortable with the existing civil laws framed some 100 years back. He said that the first ever attempt was made in 1994 and second in 1999 by the successive governments. However, due to lack of implementation procedure, the people became unhappy. Now through the proposed regulations, a procedure according to the wishes of the people was suggested for early implementation of the already existing laws, which Amir Haider Khan Hoti believed would ensure early and speedy justice. The NWFP Chief Minister said that now after this announcement, Maulana Sufi Mohammad was going to lead a delegation to Swat, where he would request the other side for return of peace. He said that the government was determined to go for earlier implementation of the regulations. In response to a question, Chief Minister Amir Haider Khan Hoti set aside the impression that this agreement was in dissent to the constitution. "The 1973 Constitution is very clear that no law will be contrary to Quran Wa Sunna." He said that under the new regulations, the appellate Bench would be established at Malakand Division. Similarly, the civil cases could be disposed of in a period of six months and criminal cases in a four months' period. In fact, the regulations were meant to ensure easy and speedy justice to the people. He in this respect, called upon the people from all over Malakand Division particularly leaders and stalwarts from all religious and political forces, to help in the return of peace and tranquillity in the region. He also hoped for an extension of the 10-day ceasefire announced by Tehrik Taliban Swat chapter. Answering a question, the Chief Minister clarified that the existing Judicial officers would perform in Malakand Division after promulgation of Nizam-i-Adal Regulations 2009. He said that most of the existing judicial officers had already got the required training. He said that in this connection a Task Force would be established for early implementation of the new laws. The Task Force would comprise Federal Interior Secretary, NWFP Chief Secretary, provincial Home and Law Affairs Secretaries, provincial presidents and one representative each of ANP and PPP. The Chief Minister made it clear "From today, the forces in Malakand particularly in Swat will re-activate instead of being pro-active." Elaborating his point of view he said that forces would not go for action but they would definitely go for re-action if attacked. He also said that this decision was not made under pressure but it was in line with the needs of the people as they were making such a demand since long. He said that the government would not allow the sabotaging of these developments.
