JIT has now become controversial. There were many points on which objections have been put before the Supreme Court. We request the apex court to not consider the unauthorized points of JIT’s report. Supreme Court said there were no findings of the report. An investigative team on which already many objections can be raised, why was its charge given to Wajid Zia who’s PTI Chief Imran Khan’s cousin? This raises the point that the JIT’s tilt is towards Pakistan Tehreek e Insaf and it’s no more neutral.
Asiya Naz- Leader PMLN
JIT’s report has no binding on Supreme Court. Our opponent party demanded Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif’s resignation. But they should know that the PM will not resign as we have reservations on many points and we’ll not accept the opponents’ demand. Our PM presented himself and his 3 generations for accountability, even when his name was also not mentioned in the case. The opposition is just trying to halt the ongoing development, health and education projects and is conspiring to derail the country from path of progress. The PM will not resign at any cost as he has come to power by acquiring the mandate of 3/4th majority.
Shaheen Shafeeq- Leader PMLN
JIT’s complete report is public and everybody can read it. We have strong belief in transparency of Supreme Court. We will accept the court’s verdict. We are very much hopeful that Supreme Court will decide the case on basis of justice.
Topic: India's CFVs along LoC, threat to regional Peace
Pakistan Army has warned of more strong and effective measures in case of any deliberate attempt to target Pakistani side of the Line of Control (LoC) by Indian troops. The warning came from Director General Military Operations (DGMO) Pakistan Major General Sahir Shamshad Mirza, during his weekly hotline contact with his Indian counterpart on Monday. The Director General notified Pakistan’s demarche to his Indian counterpart to protest deliberate targeting of Pakistan Army’s vehicle, resulting in martyrdom of four soldiers and injuring one soldier and a civilian passerby.

Firing across Line of Control had never been an extra-ordinary incident earlier. But as soon Modi’s party gained power in India, it has now become an unusual and extra-ordinary. Indian government’s attitude is getting more and more aggressive with each passing day. Earlier, when ceasefire violations were carried out, they used light and conventional weapons but now Indian side is using heavy weaponry. They are not only hitting the army personnel but also targeting the innocent civilians without any discrimination. Such incidents also affect economy of the country.
