It’s commendable and appreciable that government has decided to establish Military Courts manned by the military personnel, in order to dispense speedy justice for terrorism related cases. The decision was made after lengthy deliberations and consensus in all parties’ conference. In this regard some amendments are also required in our prevailing laws, and it’s up to the government that the sooner they will make them the better. Now the military courts are going to be established, the onus is on all the stake holders, including army to make sure that everything remains under the constitution and the military courts don’t become the source of destruction. It is imperative that only specific, hard core criminals, should be trailed and give strict punishments instead of victimise innocents in the name of speedy justice.
