OUR STAFF REPORTER LAHORE - Justice Azmat Saeed of the Lahore High Court on Friday issued notice to the federation and Attorney General of Pakistan for July 7 on a petition filed by Ameer Jamaatud Daawa (JD) Hafiz Muhammad Saeed against unabated US drone attacks in Pakistan as well as to seek complete execution of the resolution the joint session of the parliament had passed on May 14 last to warn America that if drone attacks continued, NATO supplies from Pakistan to Afghanistan would be blocked. The petitioner also prayed to the court for laying bare to public any agreement reached by any government with America regarding permission to launch drone attacks. During the course of hearing, the court remarked that the state was responsible to tell facts to the nation. Hafiz Saeed had filed the petition through his counsel Advocate AK Dogar praying to court to pass directions to the federal government to stop pre-emptive drone attacks which he said was an attack on the sovereignty of Pakistan. AK Dogar said innocent citizens were being killed in drone attacks and the government is not serious in taking any steps to put a full stop to the gory US drama of death. Saeed said a joint session of the parliament held on May 13 and 14 had passed a resolution with full consensus that one sides drone attacks from US will not be allowed in Pakistan by the Government. He said in the resolution it was pledged Pakistan government would also cut NATO supplies to Afghanistan though its territory if the US continued drones attacks in the country. He said next day on May 15 about 10 people innocent people were martyred by US by a drone attack in Miramshah, headquarters of North Waziristan, in Pakistan, in complete disrespect of the resolution. Ever since drone attacks in Waziristan and other tribal areas are being carried out by American and the government of Pakistan has taken no steps to control the attack or implement the parliaments resolution. About the statements of state functionaries including prime minister, he said presence of America in Pakistan and orders passed by the rulers for release of Raymond Davis clearly show that they are not interested in stopping the drone attack or take any stand in the face of USA aggression. Citing provision of the law and articles of the Constitution, Hafiz Saeed said it is responsibility of the government to protect life and property of the citizens by exercising all powers and taking all steps. He said it is also duty of the government to protect sovereignty and solidarity of country in case of any attacks on its territory or dignity. Referring to the statement of Iranian president about the evil designs of America in the region against the Pakistans nuke, it is mandatory for the government to implement the resolution passed in joint session of the parliament in greater national interests. The petitioner prayed to the court to issue directions to the federal government to implement the resolution to stop the drone attacks or cut the NATO supplies of US to Afghanistan by Pakistani land so that American take a lesion out of it. The petitioner with reference to Article 19 of the Constitution contended in the context of any agreement with US on the drone attacks that the state is bound to tell the people as their basic right, about any agreement whereof sovereignty and independence of the people was jeopardised. But in our case the situation is quite amazing as the people are being kept in the dark about the agreement with America on drone attacks while the people are being ruthlessly killed by the attacks. The petitioner contended that America is slowly reaching to the atomic assets of the country and the cautioned passed to Pakistan by the Iranian president is very vital in this behalf. In this situation, it is imperative to get the Parliamentary resolution implemented.
