Jadhav to be hanged even against govt's will: Siraj2017/05/22
LAHORE: Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) Ameer Siraj-ul-Haq Sunday said Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav will be hanged whether the government so wishes or not.
Talking to media on the occasion of Jamiat Intra-Youth Elections here, he said, "We do not accept the so-called world courts. We are not the servants of international courts."
Replying to questions from newsmen at the JI Youth election camp at Mohlanwal on Sunday, he said that Kulbhushan was a terrorist and had been deputed for sabotague, and hundreds of innocent people had been killed in the terrorist activities carried out by him. He said that Pakistan was a sovereign state and was not slave of any world power.
Sirajul Haq said that the country was in the hands of hijackers who were controlling its policies with the help of their ill-gotten wealth and the blessings of the international establishment. These people were carrying out the exploitation of the poor masses and the lot of the poor could not change in the presence of these people.
Sirajul Haq assured the young men that in the next elections, the JI would issue fifty per cent its tickets to the youth and added that the JI alone could ensure a bright future for the young generation. 
Earlier, while addressing the central advisory council at Mansoora, Sirajul Haq said that the past and the present rulers had driven the country into the mire of problems and the JI was striving hard to steer the country out of it through democratic mans. He said the present regime had not provided any relief to the masses during its four years rule. He said that the Panama leaks, Dubai Leaks and the London leaks had fully exposed the past and the present rulers. JI Secretary General, deputy chiefs, present and former members of the assemblies of the party and district heads attended the meeting.
Sirajul Haq said that conspiracies were going on to derive the country of its ideological foundations. However, he said, the JI was trying its best to foil these conspiracies with the support of the religious parties. He said that the unity of the religious parties would be a great divine blessing as the secular and liberal parties would not be able to face them.
The JI, he said, wanted a change through peaceful democratic means as it believed in the power of the masses. He said that the international institutions including the World Bank, Transparency International, PILDAT, had admitted the honesty, sincerity and democratic character of the JI. He said that if the masses supported the JI in the 2018 elections, it could bring the plunderers to accountability. - NNI

State misuse of cyber crime law to stifle dissent: Babar2017/05/22
ISLAMABAD: The increasing misuse by the state of the cyber crime law as evidenced in the intimidation and harassment of social media activists for allegedly criticizing national security policies is a matter of serious concern and must be stopped.
In a statement Sunday, Spokesperson Senator Farhatullah Babar said that the misuse and overuse of blanket orders issued last week by the Interior Ministry to take action against social media platforms in the name of national security is not acceptable.
It is disturbing that in a short span of time nearly one thousand cases have been registered against social media platforms. In addition provisions of the cyber crime legislation have been arbitrarily interpreted to impose new restrictions on the right to freedom of expression in the name of national security, he said.
He said that freedom of expression was already under threat from non-state actors in the name of faith and ideology and by preventing discussion on misapplication of faith related laws. It was now increasingly threatened by the state also in the name of 'national security' disregarding freedom of expression guaranteed under Article 19 of the Constitution.Silencing political dissent in the name of security or ideology is not acceptable, he said.
There is also need for appropriate legislation under Article 19 so that freedom of expression was not unduly stifled behind vague and undefined terminology.
Publicly voicing concerns about national security narrative of the state is not undermining the security. On the contrary, by presenting alternate opinions it strengthens national security and should be welcomed, he said.
It is unfortunate that the government has chosen to respond to increasing opposition to its policies by stifling dissent in the name of national security.
The policy of clamping curbs on social media platforms and freedom of expression is undemocratic, against the Constitution and is counterproductive and must be reversed. - NNI
