Pakistan's military courts amendment and decision "a blunder"

“Parliament committed a blunder by allowing military courts, but the Supreme Court committed an even bigger blunder by allowing them on the pretext that [civilian] courts were not functioning properly. It is my suggestion to parliament that it should not allow 17 nominated individuals (judges) to amend the Constitution.”
