    Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) on Wednesday challenged the Protection of Pakistan Act 2014 in the Supreme Court, Express News reported.
    A senior member of the JI had confirmed to The Express Tribune that his party will request the SC to strike down the whole law.
    The new law, which Human Rights Watch (HRW) says violates the country’s international legal obligations, is tough on terror and doubles the maximum sentence for terrorist offences to 20 years. It also allows security forces to hold suspects for up to 60 days without disclosing their whereabouts or allegations against them.
    President Mamnoon Hussain had signed the Act into a law on July 11. The Act is applicable for the next two years.

    JI runs on the religious card, if they have any shame they would disassociate from terrorism that is damaging Pakistan.
