Lahore: President of the National Party (NP) Senator Mir Hasil Khan Bizenjo on Sunday said Government and Army are paving way for a peaceful Pakistan so that generations to come can prosper. We are against using torture to end atrocities but we supported military operations against terrorists as we ran out of all other options.
State can only help provide economic, social and cultural rights to the subjects if it survives, he said while speaking at a National Advocacy Conferences on International Covenant on Economic Social and Cultural Rights organized by National Organization for Working Communities.
Mir Hasil Khan Bizenjo said that the victories of military has a positive impact on the moral of nation and that those militants who want to join mainstream can be given last chance. He said that has faced military courts and NP supported military courts to ensure peace but if these courts disappointed us we will again start our struggle.
Mr. Bizenjo called upon the government and PTI to end deadlock over election reforms as nation is passing through a critical phase. The veteran politician said that we welcome change in thinking of establishment which will benefit billions living in the region. The ongoing war is a text case for government and military in which victory is the only option, he said adding that the so called good Taliban were tools in the hand of enemies of Pakistan therefore they were also bracketed with the bad ones. “We must end terrorists as well as their lethal ideology otherwise the war would not be won,” he underlined. He lashed out at EU and UN for expressing their concerns on capital punishments terming it an unwarranted, ill-timed and groundless move.
