Karachi: Pakistan’s Sindh province Home Minister Dr Zulfiqar Mirza has criticised the judiciary for setting free scores of terrorists due to lack of substantial evidence against them.
Speaking in the Sindh Assembly, Mirza said over 320 persons, including 120 terrorists have been released following court orders in 2010-11.
He said that the law enforcement agencies’ anti-terrorism efforts were being marred by the judiciary, with the later faltering on several occasions.
“Judicial activism has been more problematic for us. Anti-state elements, anti-people elements, foreign sponsored terrorists and agents, everyone is getting away with the help of judiciary,” The Daily Times quoted Mirza, as saying.
The minister said that the judiciary’s inaction has disappointed security officials fighting the war against terrorism.
