Establishing Military Court for speedy prosecution of terrorism cases to try terrorist is the only solution to eradicate and eliminate terrorism from Pakistan

Such announcement at govt. level undoubtedly has opened more room having a serious discussion among politicians whether in-office or disgruntled, descendants or against the govt. debating and objecting over the constitution of Military Court (MC) asking to revamp the existing court instead to form Military Court.

Some stating there are Civil & Anti-Terrorism courts already on payroll of the govt. paying a huge sum but if such courts are not functional and delivering desired result then close it and send the judges back to their home instead to award them heavy salaries and perks.

Why MC? However on rising terrorism everyone are on the same page to crush the terrorist and their bases following serious public demand to hang the terrorist with no second opinion referring the recent brutal attack in Army public school Peshawar that’s killed more than 200 lives where 132 alone were children on the very first day of attack on 16th Dec 2014.

Certainly giving a fresh impetus to the govt. to take drastic action against Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) to erase them as it has been unmanageable and uncontrollable. 

As Taliban or terrorist they are neither Muslim nor associates with any specific belief or religious institution where of course no religion does endorse such barbarism, inhumanity and brutality what TTP has imposed on us, said a senior analyst.

We are witnessing since decade the country has been engulfed with terrorism & extremism and despite consecutive army operation the militancy has not been subsided but every time the terrorist & ratio of militancy emerging with a new heights and impact that’s certainly devastating the state and its sovereignty. It is therefore a clarion call or has been imperative being the only priority before us to tackle TTP element with iron hand.

The Juries and administration of Pakistan army are of the view that despite pronouncing death sentence - the convicted criminals have not been executed.- There are 8k declared death sentenced criminals languishing in different jails in the country but the govt. always remained silent and avoided to implement the court verdict on different plea.

Apart from, a strong perception for the judges sitting in the courts are also not good among general public where the cases are not handled or disposed off timely but goes prolong and eventually the culprits either gets bail or evidences are washed off or the evidence holder is killed so delay in prosecution & judgement thereof gives birth further criminality. Also there is practice where politicians breeds criminals, they support criminals, they feed and fund the criminals.

So terrorist and its sympathizers or stakeholders who support terrorism and extremism in the country before the law are equally responsible they will be tired with the same parameter, said COAS during his Corps commanders meeting.

And if we see even since 16th Dec 2014 – Has govt. & the Courts operating in the country really executed the death sentenced convicts those need to push towards death gallows and the appeal referred to the President of Pakistan from death sentenced convicts why have not been rejected so far.
So it’s a govt. lethargic and glacial attitude who never wanted to eliminate TTP and there is substantial support from terrorist sympathizers who don't want to hang or remove terrorism from the country on different pretext. And this is the reason that the country now is burning and bleeding where innocent lives are lost and nothing is secured.

Just a lame excuses among politician says - does military court guarantee that its working parameter will be limited to only terrorism or to the extent of terrorist as the apprehension showed by Asif Ali Zardari (Acting chairman PPP & Ex-president of Pakistan) while celebrating death anniversary of his wife Benazir Bhutto at Naudero Sind - if they are not involved in terrorism then why afraid? Political analyst uttered.

The intention behind the suspension of execution to the convicts basically unearths the reality - such high profiled criminals (imprisoned) are used by politicians as trump card they use criminals for their ill motives. And the reason justifies that on the name of moratorium the execution of convicts remained suspended but now it is revived to hang the terrorist - no more delay or deferment at all, clarified premier Nawaz Sharif.

There should not be any moratorium on execution of convicts requested by European Union and U.N.O secretary general who directly phoned to the premier to halt death sentenced execution.

We are very much clear that capital punishment to the terrorist does not violate international law. We respect international community and oblige UN Human Rights obligation but Pakistan is passing through very critical situation - so far we have lost 70k lives where our soldiers & civilians have been martyred – A peaceful Pakistan is in the best interest of the world, govt. spokesman said.
We have outlined policy and procedure to counter terrorism and extremism & 15 committee have been tasked with execution action plan consisting 20 points to handle terrorist rigorously. We honored the requests of European countries and that’s the reason Pakistan People Party (PPP) kept the death warrant on hold for executing convicts.

But PML-N now breaking the iceberg and keen to handle Taliban factor with capital punishment so that people of Pakistan can live in their own homeland peacefully and we will eliminate terrorism from the country. It has been cancer & we can’t afford cancerous growth anymore we will remove its abscess from the root, assured the APC team categorically by premier Nawaz Sharif.

Further, referring the handing over of 22k terrorist to the govt. by Pakistan army COAS Raheel Sharif mentioned that political leadership did not ensure capital punishment but freed the culprits, so how we can curb over the rising militancy in the country, COAS shared his concern with the team of All Party conference (APC)..
As a last resort from PML-N govt. concluded its week long APC agreed unanimously to constitute ‘’Military Courts’’ (MC) across the provinces immediately to handle terrorism & extremism and hanging the terrorist with no more moratorium.

The motive to build military court is to confirm early disposal of terrorism cases - enabling the country to ensure peace, safety and security to the people of Pakistan who are not safe in their own country. The children are killed even in school, nobody safe both in office, market, walkways and at religious centers too.

The country has been implicated in high security risk - it looks we are living in war-torn area but Pakistan army will entail the existence of military court, start its proceeding and award capital punishment to the terrorist.
Again, more than 70k life have been lost in the war on terror - we are at war – we have lost our civilian and soldiers who martyred combating with Taliban – a name that’s has been cursed from every corner who are damaging the country and its economy due to scale of bomb blasts and suicide attacks, the reason where no investor inclines to do any investment in the country, our identity and ranks among international arena has been degraded whereas we are peace loving nation, said premier.

It’s not a time to discuss whose war is this – it is our war and we have to confront, counter and retaliate with the same tone and effect - it is our collective demand (attaining the consent of all political parties gathered at one table) and decided to go for military courts - therefore military courts to be constituted in the country where terrorist and terrorism will be handled with renewed vigor and rigorous, it has been indispensable and we will do it, said COAS

Now to validating the proposal of MC in the country for two years - special amendment in the constitution (of course) will be taken care as the same political pundits who have acceded to constitute military courts - will endorse the bill while presenting into the parliament – and primarily the military courts will focus to try terrorist, mainly tackling the issue related to extremism & terrorism for its complete elimination that has been penetrated in the country, said premier Nawaz Sharif.
