Govt of Pakistan seeks its Supreme Court’s intervention to postpone the Punjab elections considering war against India

Islamabad (Pakistan) – Pakistan’s Ministry of Defence has submitted a report regarding the Assembly elections in Punjab, Pakistan. The report states that there are obstacles like a political situation, terrorist attacks, and a possibility of war against India, during the Punjab elections. Hence, they are demanding the postponement of the elections. After this report three-member Bench headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Umar Ata Bandial and comprising Justice Munib Akhtar and Justice Ijazul Ahsan instructed to hold the elections on 14th May.

The report states that if the elections are held in the politically important Punjab Province then taking advantage of casteism, water problems and other reasons India can create instability in Pakistan. That will pose a new danger to Pakistan which is already suffering from the financial crisis.

Editorial viewpoint

Indians will be happy if India destroys jihadi terrorism and frees Pakistan-occupied Kashmir by waging a war against Pakistan, but will the Government dare to do so ?
