EFSAS comments on the nexus between Judiciary, Pak-Army and Hafiz Saeed


In October 2017, Pakistan Army spokesman Major-General Asif Ghafoor said, “…That the State was working on a ‘mainstreaming’ programme to induct members of armed groups into the political process….”. This would mean that terrorists and terrorists-linked groups would be integrated into the country’s mainstream politics with the aim, according to the Major-General during his press conference, …”to develop a constructive role for them…”. This integration plan was followed by MML’s and other Islamist groups’, foray into politics.
