KARACHI (Our Staff Reporter):  TDAP chairman and patron-in-chief of United Business Group S M Muneer has said business community fully backs the decision to establish military courts and the decision of the Chief Justice to give preference to the terrorism related cases. While speaking to the business community, he said the resolve of the Prime Minister, Chief of Army Staff, top judiciary and leaders of the major political parties have positive impact on the sentiments of business community.

 He said that tough decisions have boosted the rating of PM and COAS, adding that masses will never forget those who remained steadfast and those who demonstrated laxity at this critical juncture.

SM Muneer said that US has termed capital punishment as internal matter of Pakistan while EU has expressed reservations which should be discounted as it is a matter of survival.

While lauding the improving political and military ties between Pakistani and Afghan leaderships, he said that Kabul seems serious to crush common enemy which will help uproot terror from Pakistan and Afghanistan resulting in rapid development of the entire region.

He demanded immediate steps to normalise situation in Karachi and Balochistan and take clerics of all school of thoughts on board to ensure religious harmony.
