Another call for expanded use of military courts in Pakistan

The International News reports from Lahore:
Pakistan Muslim League (PML) leader Ch Pervaiz Elahi has said that every oppressed and helpless person has pinned hopes on military courts for justice whether it is the children abuse case in Kasur or an incident of lawlessness.

Talking to the media after sympathising with parents of children in village Hussain Khanwala in Kasur, he said the scandal was an ample proof of failure and bad governance of inefficient rulers in every sector. “We established institutions for the welfare and protection of children but Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif has left them at the mercy of criminals,” he added.

Expressing grief over the martyrdom of Provincial Minister Col (R) Shuja Khanzada and others in a suicide attack in Attock, he said the most tragic aspect of the incident was that he remained buried under the debris for many hours and his nephew Sohrab Khanzada appealed to the Army Chief on the media to do something as the Punjab government was doing nothing. Supporting the demand for the Kasur tragedy case trial in military courts, he said,”We will continue our struggle till justice was provided to the victims.”
