Pakistan took a big step after chief of army staff General Raheel Sharif approved the death sentences of 11 convicts who were accused of committing heinous crimes related to terrorism, after completion of their trials by military tribunals.
In less than two months, it is the second time when the army chief has confirmed death penalty to the terrorists. Earlier, on March 15, the officer approved the death sentence to thirteen hardcore terrorists.
The convicts were identified as as Muhammad Umar, Hameedullah, Rehmatullah, Muhammad Nabi, Moulvi Dilbar Khan, Rizwan Ullah, Gul Rehman, Muhammad Ibrahim, Sardar Ali, Sher Muhammad Khan and Muhammad Jawad were involved in the henious crimes of kidnapping and eventually killing of the civilians, attacks on armed forces and other security forces like Law Enforcement Agencies (LEAs) and more henious crimes like attacking and destructing schools and communication infrastructure.
These convicts were arrested from different areas of Pakistan and claimed to be the members of the outlawed Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan.
After the terrorist attacks on an army school in December 2014, army courts were set up for the speedy trial of the terrorism-related attacks.
The fruits of these efforts did ripe and justice was delivered in this case.
