Islamabad: Pakistan government Monday said terrorists' trial by military courts was no violation of rights, media reported Tuesday.

The government urged the Supreme Court Monday to respect its decision of trying terrorists in military courts because these had been set up under the 21st Amendment in consultation with all political parties after it had been left with a very limited choice, Dawn online reported.

The courts were created in accordance with the procedure established by law to try the accused, said a 43-page rejoinder submitted by the government a day before the hearing by the apex court of a set of 13 petitions challenging the amendment.

All the provincial governments supported the amendment and almost endorsed the points highlighted by the federal government in its reply to the challenges.
