Draconian Law changes in Pakistan

It is being widely circulated that the government in Pakistan is planning to make some far-reaching modification to the Pakistan Army Act whereby civilians could be tried in the military courts.

And given that civilan courts have no jurisdication over proceedings in a military court, it will give a literal freehand to the governement to persecute dissenters.

If it is true then it is nothing short of a true Martial-Law. What a shameful act!!!
