ATTOCK

Various legal experts said that the decision of Supreme Court regarding legalising the military courts has proved that the government had failed to provide justice for the people and was unable to run the affairs of the country affectively.

“The government has failed to provide an affective justice system,” Advocate Syed Ayub Bukhari said while talking to newsmen here at his chamber. He said the government which always looked towards the army in all the critical situation and natural calamities could never provide relief for the masses.

District Bar Association Attock Vice President Advocate Ashfaq Ahmad also praised the verdict of Supreme Court, and said that it was need of the hour as terrorism, lawlessness, target killing, activities of the enemy of the country had paralysed the system. As thousands of people have lost their lives, terrorism has caused irreparable loss to the country, he said.

He said it was mandatory to trial the enemies of Pakistan in the military courts .

MPA Ejaz Bokhari when contacted regarding the SC decision in favour of military courts also supported the decision. He said that it was necessary in the present situation. He said this step was necessary to defeat militants and discourage terrorism in the country. He said that independent judiciary is the fundamental part of the Constitution but the extraordinary steps were necessary when very the situation in the country is critical.

Communist Party of Pakistan Chairman Engineer Jamil said that the decision was based on doctrine of necessity which is wrong, and added that soon the CPP would file review petition in the Supreme Court.
