Expressing his views in the Senate over the establishment of military courts, Raza Rabbani said neither terrorism could be eliminated through military courts, nor there is any mention of such courts in the Constitution of Pakistan.
He added that the role of military is clearly described in the Constitution.
“It is being said that the civil courts cannot take measures against terrorism and tomorrow it will be stated that a political government does not have the strength to resolve the crisis”, castigated the PPP Senator.
He lamented that the entire country has been transformed into a security state.
On the other hand, Aitzaz Ahsan has said that the military courts will only hear cases pertaining to religious terrorism.
He explained that only the cases of religious or sectarian terrorism will be referred to the military courts, even the Baloch nationalists’ cases could not be heard by these courts.
