In a ceremony dedicated to honouring Pakistan's martyrs, participants advocated for the severe punishment of those responsible for the May 9 incident.
Families of the martyrs and prominent figures from across the nation attended the event, aiming to pay tribute to the sacrifices made by Pakistan's heroes.
Judges and lawyers from Pakistan's Session Court, High Court, and Supreme Court actively participated in the special ceremony.
They condemned the heinous acts of the May 9 incident and emphasized the need for military courts to swiftly and decisively act against the culprits.
During the ceremony, father of the late Captain Salman Sarwar, expressed his sentiments, stating that military courts should expedite proceedings against the perpetrators who desecrated martyrs' memorials on May 9.
He questioned the efficiency of the judiciary, asking whether it could deliver timely verdicts for such significant cases, while a regular case takes an extended period for justice to be served.
Former Justice Khwaja Naveed of the Sindh High Court addressed the gathering, highlighting the misconception surrounding military courts.
He stressed that military courts not only pronounce sentences but also provide the accused with ample opportunities for condition, distinguishing them from civilian courts. The key difference lies in the expeditious resolution of cases in military courts.
Former Sessions Judge Lahore, Majid Bashir, asserted that individuals are conspiring against the military.
He accused them of plotting against our rights, undermining our defense forces, and pushing an organized agenda to hinder our military capabilities.
He hailed the families of martyrs as Pakistan's Gold Star Families, urging respect for them wherever they go.
President of Youth Alliance, Kamran Saeed Osmani, declared complete support for military courts, stating that any civilian launching an attack on military installations or institutions should face trial in a military court.
He emphasized that this is not an inhumane proposition, as similar trials occur in other democratic states worldwide.
Osmani commented on the May 9 incident, asserting its significance as an attack by our own countrymen, which is utterly intolerable. He declared it the most significant assault on national security to date.
He questioned the delay in establishing military courts when they were needed, and now, when the families of martyrs demand justice, there should be no hindrance.
The ceremony concluded with participants collectively demanding strict punishment for those responsible for the May 9 incident.
