ISLAMABAD- Former interior minister Rehman Malik has said, Supreme Court (SC) should order for hearing  Benazir Bhutto assassination case on day to day basis. This case be tried in military court if government needs so.

“It is requested to apex court to hear Benazir Bhutto assassination case on day to day basis and give decision on it as soon as possible. If government needs so, then Benazir Bhutto murder case should also be tried in military court,” he said this while addressing a press conference outside the parliament house today.

He held military courts have been set up to gear up trial in terror related cases. A bill will be passed in the parliament to give military courts a legal shape. Parliamentary committee will oversee the military courts . Politicians have chartered out a mid way for hearing the terror related cases by lending support to military courts , he added.

Military courts don’t mean that we don’t trust on other courts of the country, but these have been set up to accelerate the pace of trial in terror related cases. The terrorist cases can be tried in civil courts, session’s court and high court if security is provided to judges, prosecutors and witnesses, he observed.  Judges and witnesses are killed in broad day light, therefore, security be provided to them, he demanded.

The links of Peshawar school carnage go to Afghanistan, he said adding Fazlullah monitored Peshawar tragedy and he had been giving instructions to terrorists. He stressed that Afghan President Ashraf Ghani should hand over Moulvi Fazlullah to Pakistan within 24 hours. The role being played by army in these hard times is highly commendable, he remarked. He underlined that concessions be extended to backward areas of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. If jobs are provided to jobless persons there, then terrorism can scale down.
