Pak Executed 332 criminals, militants since 2014

gallowsPakistan announced this week that authorities have executed 332 criminals and militants since lifting a moratorium on the death penalty in 2014, the first time an official tally has been released.

The South Asian nation unveiled a sweeping plan to curb militancy after Taliban assailants gunned down more than 150 people, most of them children, at an army-run school in Peshawar on December 16, 2014.

In a written reply submitted to the parliament on Friday, the Ministry of Interior and Narcotics Control said 332 people had been executed in the country.

However opponents of the policy stress that Pakistan’s legal system is unjust. Human rights activist Asma Jahangir,said that the government is hanging petty criminals but known terrorists on death row are awaiting their punishment for years.
