PESHAWAR, 16 May: Bills to repeal Frontier Crimes Regulations (FCR) and introduce Riwaj Act in FATA were tabled in the National Assembly on Monday.

Federal Minister for States and Frontier Regions (SAFRON) Abdul Qadir Baloch presented both the bills in the Lower House of the Parliament. The minister said the bills have been forwarded to the law and justice and other related committees. A heated argument was also witnessed between the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman and Member National Assembly from FATA Al-Haaj Shah Jee Gul Afridi on the bill concerning abolishment of the FCR. Fazlur Rehman said the bill is not in accordance with the commitment made with them by the government. He feared that the bill may further deteriorate the existing conditions in FATA. Shah Jee said the JUI-F chief wanted to push back the tribal areas by several centuries, adding that he will never be allowed to do it.

The Qaumi Watan Party (QWP) chief Aftab Ahmed Khan Sherpao said anyone who has objection over the bill should record their opinion in the concerned standing committees.
