ISLAMABAD, Feb 18 (APP): Minister for Tourism Maulana Atta ur Rahman said February 18, which the government has decided to celebrate as Democracy Day, was a great event for the nation, marking end of a dictatorship and beginning of democracy.

Recording his reaction over Day of Democracy, JUI (F) MNA elected from District Tank, who recently assumed the charge as Federal Minister for Tourism, Maulana Atta underlined the need for giving democracy full room to flourish in the country.

He also called for implementation of 1973 Constitution in its true essence.

The minister termed it a step of the government towards Islam and democracy for approving Shariah based judicial system (Shariah Adl Regulations 1999) in Malakand Division.

“We felicitate the people of Malakand and government of NWFP for this success,” the minister said.

Maulana Atta said a cleavage created in Federally Administered Tribal  Areas (FATA) after FATA Regulation were repealed in 1993 as well as non-implementation of Shariah system in 1994 and Shariah based judicial system in 1998.

The minister said people pinned high hopes on Muttahida Majlis Amal (MMA) Government in 2002, which passed a Hasba Bill and invited opinion of the rest of the country in this respect.

But the then president Pervez Musharraf challenged Hasba Bill in the  Supreme Court that was passed by NWFP provincial assembly, however, the apex court did not rejected the draft, but found some of its clauses contrary to the Constitution.

The minister said then MMA Government as well as its leadership accepted the objections raised by the Supreme Court on Hasba Bill and got it passed again by the NWFP assembly. But, again then federal government challenged the bill in the Supreme Court and impeded its approval.

Non-implementation of agreements, opposition to Hasba Bill by Pervez Musharraf and then federal government led to the unrest in Malakand Division, Maulana Atta said.

The minister said implementation of Shariah based judicial system in Malakand agency had paved the way for Islamic system in rest of the country. “Islamic system is the basic right of the people and it rules their hearts and minds.”

He stressed the need for evolving national consensus through National and provincial assemblies on the laws finalised by the Islamic Ideology Council as question arouse as to what school of thought the Shariah based judicial system may be conformed with.  “Guidance could also be sought through Hasba Bill in NWFP.”
