    Do you really think, anyone here will endorse me? This forum is also used for propaganda against its own sitting govt (you can see FB posts adn suspended Twitter account).
    But, change is evident in our society. People start to criticize the role of army. One major thing is DHA and Cantt when normal people pass by these housing societies and sees the diffference of life. Politicians ko tau badnaam kiya hai inho nay.

    Sir with due respect, the whole constitution also states that army is under the Civillians power and they have to comply the govt orders. Isn't it?
    Ab tau apko consitution yaad agaya ...

    I agree with you that Pakistan is for every Pakistani regardless of religion.

    Islam tells us that if you murder/kill one human, you killed entire humanity. So extremists are not following Islam, they are takfiris.

    Now read this whole clause. Don't alter the facts and law

    A High Court shall not exercise any jurisdiction under Article 199 in relation to any area in which the Armed Forced of Pakistan are, for the time being, acting in aid of civil power in pursuance of Article 245:

    Provided that this clause shall not be deemed to affect the jurisdiction of the High Court in respect of any proceeding pending immediately before the day on which the Armed Forces start acting in aid of civil power.

    (4) Any proceeding in relation to an area referred to in clause (3) instituted on or after the day the Armed Forces start acting in aid of civil power and pending in any High Court shall remain suspended for the period during which the Armed Forces are so acting.]

    Can you elaborate the section along with sub-section as quoted to a layman like me?

    Also, but LHC praised and supported what Pakistan Army did in this subject so I wonder, being naive of legal matters, how one Court can miss what you quoted as such?

    Funny how the same judge who was part of countrywide sit-ins, property damage, disruption and rioting during lawyers protests, is behaving like holy cow.
    Back in 2009 him and 100 judges removed by Musharraf, were restored due to Coas kayani arbitration. Now he says army should not arbitrate

    To all the dimwit idiots out here, acc to Pakistani law a prisoner after released has to be given some kind of monetary relief like a bus ticket home, the command of the situation was given to the rangers by the govt, this is rangers handing out that legal busticket home to the released protestors acc to Pakistani law, now shut it u bigots...

    Come out of this colonial mindset quick, no one takes a yes sir seriously, this country will be run only as Pakiatanis want it, the world will take us seriously with our own unique identity, if they have a problem with it they can go to hell....

    Errr.
    Article 245 when implied, completely removes high court powers to interfere.
    Article 199 requires an applicant asking the court yo take action. The high court cannot take any action by itself, I needs a claimant.
    In Faizabad case there were two disputing parties, the government of Pakistan and Dharna leaders. None asked the high court to interfere, and yet they did.

    Honestly I still don't get ...... why ....... the need to object on what role Army played ........ then.

    The area got cleared and Army got involved ...... without sending in the force to make way for police and LEAs.

    The main goal was to get the area cleared ........ protesters weren't listening and agreeing to whatever the government was negotiating with them. Finally the city administration (no senior high ranking official involved) is tasked to do a halfhearted clearance operation (to prove that we are complying with court's orders), which the sitting interior minister later disowned publicly in the media. The result chaos and more agitation ..... now the government straight away jumps to order Army to get involved ..... (I hope you see the problem) .... the Army gets involved (contrary to what most are not getting here) ...... and they solve the issue without any further confrontation and agitation ......... when a serving Major General has signed the settlement document then how is it that Army didn't act on Government's order and didn't play its role to establish law and order and avoid chaos?

    Was it really necessary to send in troops? When the goal can be achieved without it?

    The govt poked a bee hive. Even majority of the parliament was against this amendment let alone the general public.
    They touched a very sensitive issue without keeping in mind the outcome.

    The way the matter was handled was exactly how it should have been handled, the turmoil was spreading throughout the country.
    The bottom line is that you cannot use force against the general public. It is not bowing to some fringe elements, when in fact the fringe elements were those who passed this law which was not only repugnant to the spirit of Islam( in total violation of the constitution) but also against the wishes of the majority of the public.

    Armed forces are beyond the jurisdiction of a high court under article 199
    . I don't know under what authority justice Shaukat of Islamabad high court is even talking about army in precious court time where he should be doing something productive.

    Ending sit-in: LHC judge applauds army for saving country

    LAHORE: Just a day after an Islamabad High Court (IHC) judge came down hard on the army’s mediation to defuse the three-week-long-sit-in on the Faizabad intersection in the federal capital, his counterpart in Lahore believed otherwise.

    Justice Qazi Muhammad Amin Ahmed of the Lahore High Court (LHC) was all praise for the military on Tuesday, saying that its timely intervention saved the country from a huge catastrophe and prevented more deaths.

    “There would have been more deaths if the armed forces had not intervened timely,” Justice Ahmed observed. “Everyone knows that the army has saved the country from a huge catastrophe.”

    Exactly, finality of the Prophethood is the cornerstone of the faith of a Muslim and this is one thing about which there is no difference of opinion among the sects in Islam. Furthermore even if it were apparently the brelvis, they constitute the largest portion of the population that remains calm and peaceful for 99.99% of the time. I had a little difference of the leadership of Khadim Hussain because of his abusive language which is totally unacceptable for a religious leader but there are no two opinions about their stance.

    Army did an excellent job to quell it otherwise it was spreading at mind boggling pace with each city being shut simultaneously. People had just started to attack the members of the PMLn and it was just the start.
