What are the advantages and disadvantages of martial law in Pakistan?
In Pakistan, the saying that “Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely” applies truly to the letter. So far, almost all civilian governments have been corrupt with Nawaz Sharif and Asif Ali Zardari competing against each other to be on the top. But whenever Martial Law has been imposed, the corrupt do shudder but just for a short while. When things settle down, things return to the same original situation. During Martial Law, people in uniform have had a field day when the military was in power in the past. Martial Law has shown to be disadvantageous when the chief of the armed forces who also becomes the Chief Martial Law Administrator, happens to be a goon. This was evident in Yahya Khan.
Importance Of Martial Law In Pakistan:
President Marcos imposed martial law on the nation from 1972 to 1981 to suppress increasing civil strife and the threat of a communist takeover following a series of bombings in Manila.
