Military courts formed to save democracy, eliminate terrorism: Rashid

pervaizzzzzzzzzzzISLAMABAD, Dec 28 (INP) : Federal Information Minister, Pervaiz Rashid said on Sunday that in the past military courts were formed to end democracy, however, this time their purpose was to save democracy and eliminate terrorism.

In a statement the information minister said there were elements in Pakistan who wanted to impose their agenda by the barrel of a gun which was unacceptable. Rashid said if fear was exhibited at this time, terrorists would turn the country into a graveyard. “We have to save our future generations from these animals.” He said democracy and terrorism are the two opposites.

The information minister added that peace in Kabul was as important as peace in Islamabad. Rashid said both countries would fight terrorism together as peace was a common asset of this region. He said Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif played an important role in bringing Afghanistan to a common thinking with Pakistan against terrorism.

Pervaiz Rashid expressed the  hope that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan would return to Parliament and would work with the government to strengthen democracy.
