joined by family farms from. some of them to see you why is this sentence so significant well it is significant symbolically because you see that the military is so powerful in pakistan the military dictators broke the constitution they suspended the constitution there were true government elected civilian governments so and the judiciary always supported the military actions of the coups and the suspensions the 1st time we see that the judiciary actually stood up against the military and say it is wrong and we hand over the death sentence to the former military dictator but who is much of so hugely significant and also symbolically significant so the judiciary might have stood up to the army but then given by the power that the army exercises in pakistan what are the chances the sentence are likely to be counted out well the chances are already low in my opinion 1st it's a split decision and also musharraf has the right to appeal against the would act
5:33 pm
superior court the supreme court for example so i know it is likely that the supreme court will have a different decision but we're not sure about it but there is a legal of course from a shot off and he needs to follow that his supporters will not come out to the streets and you know a protest against the wording this is not going to happen so all he needs to do is now to follow the legal procedure the army would try its best to make sure that the money that musharraf is not because that will give out a very bad message to the public and it will show that the military speak will not show its weakness british right and that's very believe it for the time being seamus i'm speaking to us about this sentence handed down to pervez musharraf thank you so much thanks very much and you can find out more background on this story on our website dot com what's last shot. police in india are facing criticism for the
5:34 pm
heavy handed response to students protesting a new citizenship law the citizenship amendment act provides a pathway to indian citizenship for religious minorities from neighboring countries with the exception of muslims students of delhi's jummy i mean yes the university parts of which were answered by police are among many across the country that have joined in protests against the law and then on images like these have sparked outrage in india bottle and wielding police snatch a student. their excess of force only stopped when confronted with incredible bravery part of what eyewitnesses say was a day of violence against you hoots. that culminated in officers firing tear gas on paul testers inside the jamia millia islamia university in delhi before raiding the campus. so we were waiting on
5:35 pm
the police t.v. when the police came we did at least know we asked if it was the crowd but it came out to new york was it the police started beating us and abusing us the aftermath in the library speaks to the chaos scores where injured police sent out a public relations officer to clean up the mess. when we started pushing the protesters back from the road stones were pelted from both sides so tear gas was used at that time the rowdy elements went inside the university in the police chased them in there because a lot of stone pelting was going on we were doing a thorough investigation with the investigation and. to sit down protest opposition leaders blame the government for the heavy handed response. that had me summit on the government has attacked students by entering universities so we will fight for the constitution of india. we have said it time and again we will fight
5:36 pm
against the government picking up nothing you will be hostility to the citizen law keeps gathering steam across india in west bengal and lead up mamata banerjee led protests critics say the act which grants a route to citizenship for non muslim migrants threatens india's secular foundation but perhaps it will be the sign of on rest spreading among student bodies that will give no government most cause for concern. and the variance of these protests has prompted it just prime minister narendra modi to respond and he calls the outcry unfortunate and deeply distressed distressing here short people that no indian has anything to what he regarding this act he also added that this is the time to maintain peace unity and brotherhood and joining me now is how to ensure director of human rights watch menard she dunkerley read only prime minister more the has appealed for calm in the midst of these violent protests do you think the
5:37 pm
extent of the opposition has caught the government by surprise. i do hope that that is the case that the prime minister now recognizes that there is public opinion against this and that he does the right thing in india versing these policies in a democracy it's very important for. for an elected leader to heat protests. are making this about politics but do you think that these protests that we are seeing across the country represent the large majority view on the citizenship amendment act. it is hard to test that the question the question really is that there has been. a very significant number of voices students who are out on the streets. the government has made
5:38 pm
a difference in lux on this issue initially it was all about trying to control immigration which of course is a is also a problematic because it is immigration trying to intrude immigration based on religion but the bigger concern really is how this amendment bill is tied to a national citizenship process now when happens in a citizenship issue process is that if a non muslim cannot produce the paperwork they were automatically get down to citizenship while a muslim would not be able to now in a country where we know for a fact that they provoke is extremely hard to produce this this leads to concerns that a significant chunk of india's population may be denied citizenship and that really is the basis for the protest now the government needs to write very only it and see
5:39 pm
it as policies and to understand that people are objecting to this kind of violation of the constitution but what about the form of objections that have been a lot of biden's police officer also been injured in these protests what would you say to that. but of course we would call upon all produce just don't do only engage in peaceful protest and not in nationwide's but there are the issues involved here the culture of street violence unfortunately has been building up for some time lost the lead in fact the budget the supporters this is been the time when you know when the g.o.p. supporters are gone and vandalized movie theaters are our reporters readings are you know targeted production of movies are our. allies spend they have actually attacked muslims on the street claiming that they were illegally trading in b. if our part attacked people who have loved you have now this kind of street

violence in egypt little antiviolence we have been saying for the longest day is something that needs to be contained this culture has coming because because the way to peace refused to act against the supporters vendetta against in this kind of violence now the same thing is happening here there are numerous protesters also saying that they did not commit the violence it was done by b.g.p. supporters quickly to make them look bad now is how to tell in any any of these circumstances what exactly has happened but certainly what should happen is is is a is a coming of situation affairs investigation and for the for the b.g.p. leadership and particularly the prime minister who is after all the primacy of all of india due to come out not doing it in politics and hardwick nice and there is no shame in a democracy where leaders listen to people's voices and it was close right next younger that's very relieved for the time being thank you so much for speaking to us if.
