ISLAMABAD - Chairman Senate, Farooq H Naek has criticised and challenged so- called theories of 'collateral damage and 'doctrine of necessity used by some of the big powers to justify and camouflage indiscriminate use of force causing loss of innocent human lives in armed conflicts. He stated this while addressing a panel discussion on 'International Humanitarian Law at the 121st Inter-Parliamentary Union Assembly in Geneva, according to a message received here Thursday. Farooq Naek emphasised the need to identify the proper application of humanitarian law while maintaining a balance between state security and individual liberty, respect for national sovereignty and making distinction between armed personnel and miscreants, adding that politically motivated application of this law has diluted its credibility. He said that International Humanitarian Law derives its ethos from the principals and fundamentals of Islam, adding that Pakistan fully supported the basic morality and objectives of necessitating the respect of basic human rights in conflict zones and armed conflicts.
