    Alliance led by Pakistan Muslim League proposes two years extension to Military Courts

    LAHORE: A four-party alliance led by the Pakistan Muslim League (Quid-e-Azam) has proposed at least two-years extension to military courts in its nine-point recommendations.

    The PMLs proposal came a day after the PPPP gave its conditional consent to one-year extension to the military courts.

    Matching with the PPPPs nine suggestions, the Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT), Sunni Ittehad Council (SIC) and Majlis Wahdatul Musalmeen (MWM) led by PML proposed that military courts should be given an extension for two years and a parliamentary committee be constituted to monitor the cases sent to these courts.

    The alliance gave nine-point recommendations after the meeting attended by PML leaders Chaudhry Shujaat Husain and Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi, PATs Khurram Nawaz Gandapur, Sahibzada Hamid Raza of SIC and Nasir Sherazi of MWM at the Chaudhrys residence here on Tuesday.

    The alliance has also proposed that the Model Town tragedy in which 14 PAT workers were killed in June 2014 should also be listed among major terrorism incidents such as blast at Sehwan Sharif, Quetta High Court attack, Gulshan Iqbal Park Lahore suicide bombing, etc and these cases should be tried in the military courts.

    PAT had nominated Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif and some federal and provincial ministers in the FIR of Model town killings.

    We are positive that one day justice will be done in the Model Town case. Like other terrorism incidents, the Model Town episode was also an act of terror and we strongly demand that this case should also be tried by a military court, PML's Senator Kamil Ali Agha.

    Agha told Dawn after the meeting.

    Mr Agha said the alliance had proposed at least two-year extension to military courts so that during the period judicial reforms could be introduced enabling the traditional courts to deal with such cases. That would eliminate the need for military courts once for all, he added.

    He said the PML would present its recommendations to other parties as well to evolve consensus before tabling these in the parliament.

    The PPP had proposed one-year extension to military courts that should be presided over by sessions judges along with military officials. We think our nine points are more relevant than the PPPs as these address the real issues of the criminal justice system, Senator Agha said.

    The alliance has also proposed that terrorism should be defined, explained and debated in the parliament, no political party or worker be victimised and political workers freedom of expression and medias independence should not be affected under the proposed amendments.

    It also suggested that public protest against price hike, governance, load shedding, law and order, unemployment and extra-democratic steps of the government, besides difference of political opinion and protest against local administration, should not be considered anti-state acts or terrorism.

    The alliance also proposed that all stages -- from verdicts of the military courts to decision on the appeals -- should be completed in the shortest possible period.

    Chaudhry Shujaat was critical of those making extension to military courts an issue. We will not allow any attempt to make it (military court extension) an issue, he said, adding military courts were needed because to convict culprits under ordinary laws was not possible and there had been examples of amending such laws in many countries, including US.

    The PML-N government had established military courts for terrorists trials for two years in Jan 2015, in the aftermath of the Army Public School carnage in Peshawar.

    India is hatching conspiracies against the KalaBagh Dam and constructing unjustified dams on Pakistan;s Rivers: Moonis Elahi

    LAHORE: Leader of the Pakistan Muslim League Chaudhry Moonis Elahi has said that the only way to achieve prosperity and national progress lies in the early construction of the Kalabagh dam, India is hatching conspiracies against the Kalabagh dam and constructing unjustified dams on Pakistans rivers.

    Moonis Elahi said unemployment and uncertainty are plaguing young Pakistanis while youth-friendly policies were pushed forward during his partys tenure.

    Moonis Elahi added that 40 million acre feet of water was flowing into the sea while Pakistan can produce 50,000 megawatt electricity, priced at Rs2.5 per unit only. He said such use of resources could potentially save US$10 billion annually.

    With reference to the PML-N, Moonis Elahi said that distributing laptops and loans to the youth on interest did not provide relief the real relief lay in the provision of cheap electricity.

    Ch. Moonis Elahi invited the people of Sindh, Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa and Balochistan to discuss the issue of the Kalabagh dam in order to resolve any uncertainties.

    PAK Military vows to defeat designs of hostile agencies

    ISLAMABAD: Top military commanders have said that hostile agencies are trying to undo Pakistans gains in security and development, especially the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor. However, they pledged to defeat such designs through a whole of the nation approach.

    The forum reiterated the resolve of the Pakistan Army to play its due role towards defence and security of the motherland. Sacrifices made by resilient people of Pakistan and its brave security forces shall not go waste, InshaAllah, the militarys media wing said after a corps commanders conference held at the GHQ on Thursday.

    The huddle came hours after Pakistan and India established a hotline contact through the directors general of military operations (DGMOs).

    ISPRs Director General Maj Gen Asif Ghafoor said Pakistans DGMO strongly rejected Indian concerns over the movement of terrorists along the Line of Control (LoC). The Indian army [has been] asked to look inward and share evidence, he said in a post on microblogging site Twitter.

    The corps commanders also said that it was for the government to revive military courts which had ceased to function in January after completing their two-year tenure.

    The forum expressed its confidence in the performance of the military courts. However, the decision for reinstatement of the military courts rests with the government, the ISPR said quoting the top commanders.

    The conference, presided over by army chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa, took place in the backdrop of the parliamentary parties meeting on the revival of the military courts that had been established in the wake of the Dec 2014 terrorist attack on a military-run school in Peshawar for the speedy trial of hardcore terrorists.

    These courts had been set up as a part of the National Action Plan (NAP) against terrorism. Except for the main opposition group, the PPP, all major parties have agreed to re-establish them for another two years.

    The ISPR statement came hours after the PPP denied a government claim that an agreement had been reached on the revival of the military courts for two years.

    Decision for reinstatement of military courts lies with govt: ISPR

    According to the militarys media wing, the corps commanders discussed progress on the NAP and said that through Operation Raddul Fasaad (RuF) implementation of NAP needed to be speeded up jointly by respective stakeholders for durable peace and stability.

    Operation Raddul Fasaad launched last month after a string of terror attacks was discussed in detail. The RuF is a comprehensive across-the-board operation against terrorists and terrorism and not against any particular race, sect or group, General Qamar was quoted as saying.

    The commanders also acknowledged participation and support by Pakistan Air Force and Pakistan Navy in the ongoing operations.

    They also reviewed the geo-strategic and security environment with special focus on internal security, Pak-Afghan border situation, as well as Indian ceasefire violations along the LoC and the Working Boundary.

    The army chief also apprised the participants of his recent visits to the United Arab Emirates and Qatar, which, he said, remained successful in making positive progress.

    The commanders hailed performance of the security forces including police, intelligence agencies and other law enforcement agencies for effective response to recent terrorist incidents and security arrangements for the Pakistan Super League (PSL) final that was held in Lahore last week.

    Gen Qamar also informed the participants about discussion held during the last security conference with government authorities. These discussions included topics like phased fencing of the Pak-Afghan border, repatriation of Afghan refugees, judicial, police, madrassa and educational institutions reforms and restarting execution of convicts awarded the death penalty by the military courts.

    The military commanders also discussed the Dawn leaks issue. However, the ISPR would not provide further insight into the discussions at the GHQ. The meeting also reviewed the Pakistan Armys support in conducting sixth Housing and Population Census 2017.

    They said the army shall undertake the task of a population count as a national service.

    Census begins in 63 districts today

    ISLAMABAD: Pakistans largest-ever population census will kick off on Wednesday (today) in 63 districts of the country after a delay of 19 years.

    All arrangements have been put in place for the first phase of the census. The field staff has received the required material, Chief Statistician Asif Bajwa told Dawn.

    He said as many as 118,000 enumerators from different departments, including the Pakistan Bureau of Statistics (PBS), had been provided training. Moreover, 175,000 army personnel have also been deployed in the districts.

    The army personnel, he said, would be involved in enumeration as well as providing security to the surveyors.

    The first phase of the exercise will end on April 15. The second phase will commence on April 25 and end on May 25. In the second phase, 87 districts will be covered. Census reports will be completed in two months.

    The chief statistician said no change had been made in the original plan.

    Asked about reservations expressed by some political parties over the conduct of the census, the chief statistician said he couldnt stop anyone from issuing statements. We will follow the agreed scheme, he said.

    The major concern raised over the conduct of the census is from three provinces Sindh, Balochistan and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and related to internal migration. A similar concern has been voiced by temporarily displaced tribal people. It is not clear whether the internally displaced persons will be counted in their native areas or where they are living at present.

    The Balochistan National Party-Mengal and the Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan have filed petitions in the superior courts regarding their concerns on the census.

    The National Database and Registration Authority (Nadra) has blocked 350,000 computerised national identity cards (CNICs) ahead of the first phase of the census.

    Mr Bajwa claimed that most of the blocked CNICs belonged to Afghan nationals. However, he added, the census would cover all people living in the country irrespective of their ethnicity or nationality. Foreign nationals would also be registered.

    However, in the census reports only those Afghans will be counted who have valid Pakistani CNICs and the rest will be left out. The PBS will use Nadra database to check fake CNICs.

    On internal migration, he said people who had migrated from one province to another and stayed there for more than six months would be counted as part of the population of the host province.

    Meanwhile in a response to a letter of Chief Minister Sindh Murad Ali Shah, Finance Minister Ishaq Dar has sought to allay the concerns of the province.

    In a statement issued on Tuesday, Mr Dar said army personnel would work with civil enumerators to ensure a transparent and smooth census.

    Coordination and vigilance committees had been set up at the census district level to monitor the process and ensure accuracy of data collection, he said, adding that a transparent census was a national effort which could only be successful with the cooperation and support of all concerned.

    However, the minister said, public access to data at the census district level was not possible as the census data would not be processed at the district level. Also the law prohibits sharing of data before it is anonymised.

    Referring to the chief ministers proposal for the setting up of complaint redressal system, he said an elaborate complaint redressal system had been put in place. Control rooms have been established at federal, provincial, divisional, administration district and census district level to cater to the issues of non/over/under enumeration during the census operation.

    On the proposal of doing away with the condition of CNIC for the census, Mr Dar clarified that CNIC was not mandatory. Only CNIC of the head of the family or any responsible person is required to ensure authenticity of data.

    If a family member does not have a CNIC, they can provide other forms of identification to prove their identity. In the extreme case of no member of a family having a CNIC, the family would still be enumerated, he added.

    To further strengthen the transparency of the process, Mr Dar proposed the setting up of a committee of technical experts, nominated by the provincial governments, to monitor the data processing at PBS headquarters and ensure that all parameters of the data processing were being uniformly applied across the country.

    The first census in the country was conducted in 1951, the second in 1961, the third in 1972, instead of 1971 due to political turmoil, and the fourth in 1981. The fifth census, which was due in 1991, was conducted in March 1998 with the help of the army.

    The census is considered to be one of the basic elements for judicious distribution of resources, calculating representation in parliament, electoral processes, tax collection, tackling civic issues, including growing urbanisation, and evaluation of resources for infrastructure development.

    Under the constitution, the government is bound to conduct census every 10 years.
