ISLAMABAD - Condemning the statement of Defence Minister that 3,000 youths from Swat and other parts of the country are under detention without legal recourse, Chairman PTI Imran Khan has demanded of the Supreme Court to take suo moto action against the minister. In a statement Pakistan Tehreek-I-Insaf (PTI) leader Imran Khan Thursday condemned the statement of Defence Minister that 3,000 youths from Swat and other parts of the country are under detention without legal recourse. He said findings of the Eisenhower Research Project based at Brown University has confirmed that the denial of fundamental human rights including access to legal course result in extensive violent response and terrorism against the civilian population caught between two opposing forces. The PTI Chairman demanded that the Supreme Court should take suo moto action against the defence minister and ask him to provide details of the detained individuals and why they are being denied access to justice. The Pakistan Tehreek-I-Insaf Chairman stated that the findings of the Eisenhower Research Project have vindicated the Pakistan Tehreek-I-Insaf stance that the war on terror has only brought economic and social destruction. He said the report also destroys the myth that the US invasions led to democracies in the region with warlords continuing to hold power in Afghanistan with US support neither bringing democracy nor improving the human rights status of the people. The PTI Chief said another research conducted by Rand highlights the fact that alternate approaches have been much more effective than military responses at eliminating terrorism. They include criminal justice responses and attempts to address the well-being concerns of both combatants and the broader populace that might support them. The study found that 40 percent of the 268 terror groups were eliminated through intelligence and policing methods; 43 percent ended their violence as a result of peaceful political accommodation; 10 percent ceased their violent activity because they had achieved their objectives (victory) by violence; and only 7 percent were defeated militarily. The PTI Chief concluded that a political settlement of the war on terror is the only way forward to save Pakistan from further social and economic destruction.
