ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Law and Justice Dr Babar Awan has said that there is no general in Pakistan who wishes to pursue Martial Law. He added that the ones in the past who were in favour of Martial Law are now either in graveyards or in the UK.

Awan was addressing a press conference in Islamabad on Friday. He said that the constitution or democracy are not in danger and that the current government will complete its tenure. He vowed that next elections would be held constitutionally.

Awan's statement comes against the backdrop of MQM chief Alatf Hussain's statement calling on 'patriotic' generals to take 'Martial Law like' action against corrupt politicians.
