The talks between the Taliban and the Pakistani government have given rise to another issue prevailing over the country since its independence. The issue is whether Shariah Law should be enforced in the country. The latest statement by the TTP spokesman Shahidullah Shahid is like a stone in the river of peace talks. He has claimed that the TTP have also been battling for the complete enforcement of the Shariah Law in the country.
In a statement, Munawar Hasan said that the Constitution clearly accepts the Holy Book of Isam, the Qur’an and Sunnah as the supreme law of Pakistan and pledges that no law can be enacted in the country that violates the Qur’an and Sunnah. ‘If the rulers enforce the constitution in its true spirit, not only will it steer the country from the quagmire of problems but also fulfill the objectives of Pakistan’s creation,’ stressed Munawar Hasan in a statement.
Futhermore the General Secretary of JI, Liaquat Baloch, completely ruled out the imposition of Shariah through the battle using gun and killing of innocent human beings. ‘The Constitution of Pakistan was chalked out in the light of Qur’an and Sunnah and, in this way, Shariah is very much already in place in the country,’ he explained. The opposition leader of the National Assembly, Khursheed Shah said a system based on the Qur’an and Sunnah is already pretty much in force in Pakistan. ‘We pray for the success of govt committee engaged in peace talks with the Taliban,’ he said.
