Pakistan has committed to upholding its constitutional duties in response to the events of May 9.”I would like to reiterate what we have said in the past, that Pakistan is a country of laws,” the FO spox continues. “Pakistan is a country of laws.”A day that was also known as “Black Day,” May 9 was the day when protests broke out in response to the detention of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan. On Thursday, the government of Pakistan committed to follow all constitutional obligations when taking action against the individuals engaged in the attacks that occurred on that day.
During her weekly press briefing in Islamabad, Foreign Office Spokesperson Mumtaz Zehra Baloch made the comment in response to statements from rights bodies and US lawmakers who asked Pakistan to uphold its pledges in light of the fact that thousands of supporters of the PTI had been imprisoned in connection with the disturbances that occurred on May 9.The PTI claimed that its employees, especially women, were being harassed in prisons, but a committee that was appointed to assess their conditions disputed the claims. The committee was constituted to investigate the complaints. The female employees of the PTI have stated on their own that they were not harassed when they were incarcerated.
“I would like to reiterate what we have said in the past, that Pakistan is a country of laws,” the spokesperson added. “I would like to reiterate what we have said in the past.””.it is a country that has human rights and fundamental freedoms guaranteed by the constitution, and we are a democratic setup with a free and independent judiciary.””The Government of Pakistan will continue to follow its obligations under the law, under the Constitution,” the FO spokesperson explained further.The Army denies the allegations.It is essential to point out that the Pakistan Army has also refuted these charges and stated that actions are being taken based on “irrefutable evidence.”
“Unfounded and baseless allegations on Law Enforcement Agencies and Security Forces for custodial torture, human rights abuses and stifling of political activities are meant to mislead the people and malign Armed Forces in order to achieve trivial vested political interests,” the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said in a statement after the conclusion of Formation Commanders Conference at the GHQ, Rawalpindi. The conference was held at the General Headquarters in Rawalpindi.
The forum, while condemning the events of the 9th May Black Day in the strongest possible terms, reaffirmed their firm resolve that those responsible for the desecration of Shuhada Monuments and Jinnah House as well as the attackers of military installations would definitely be brought to justice in a timely manner under the Pakistan Army Act and the Official Secret Act, both of which are derivatives of the Constitution.
