LAHOREJustice Iftikhar Hussain Chaudry of the Lahore High Court on Tuesday gave another opportunity to the federal government to file reply to a petition against the unabated US drone attacks on the Pakistani soil. The petition filed by Barrister Javed Iqbal Jafree, prays for a judicial direction to the government for adopting all measures to halt drone attacks wherein lives of scores of Pakistanis have been lost besides injuries to thousands others. Earlier a deputy attorney general requested the court to adjourn hearing as reply from the concerned quarters of the government was awaited. The judge deferred hearing till May 5 and directed the DAG to ensure filing of the reply by that date. Arguing his case, Jafree blasted the Pakistani rulers alleging them of insensitive and apathetic towards the lives of the people and the vital national interests. He alleged the rulers are enjoying a lavish lifestyle having literally sold out sovereignty of the country to the US for the sake stay in power with its blessing. Jafree also prayed to court to ask federal government for a comprehensive report about agreement/treaty with America and Black Water, if any, with respect to drone attacks. Petitioner also urged the court to call for the details from the government as to the number of drone attacks carried out so far and the number of persons killed therein, and compensation provided to the victims. He stated that former dictator Pervez Musharraf is responsible for drone attacks in Pakistan as his unwise foreign policy had turned Pakistan into a weak state.
