Chairman Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf Imran Khan has said his party will reinitiate movement for the restoration of all deposed judges including Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry from November, 3.

Imran Khan said this while addressing a press conference here Tuesday. He held recovery of those persons who were detained illegally on the false charges of terrorism after 9/11 incident could not be ensured unless the judiciary was restored in the country.

People could not expect any justice from the sitting judiciary nor did they accept the authority of PCO judges, PTI chairman underlined.

Hitting hard PPP for his backing out from promise on restoration of deposed judges he said PPP on one hand joined us in chanting slogans for reinstatement of deposed judges but it forgot this promise after coming into power.

He alleged the way the former president Pervez Musharraf served US interests to secure his government, the incumbent government was also pursuing this policy.

“We are not supportive of terrorists and extremists. But government is promoting extremism by killing people of the country through military operations”, he regretted. It should have now become clear on the government that use of force was no option to resolve this problem. We will have to bring the militants round the negotiating table, he urged.

The in-camera session of parliament for formulation of policy on terrorism was held without the element of seriousness, he said adding the presence of parliamentarians in the last days of the session was next to nil. Government had informed the politicians sitting outside the parliament a day before session deliberately so that they could not attend it, he charged.

No Jirga could succeed in the efforts for establishment of peace in the region unless Taliban were made part of this process, he maintained. US should have no objection if Karzai or Pakistan started talks process with Taliban, he added.
