It was imposed by General Muhammed Zia-ul-Haq.Politician, Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, took over in 1971, General Zia overthrew Bhutto and imposed Martial Law. The government resumed in 1988 following General Zia's death. My personal opinion on martial law is that sometimes its necessary.Like in case of disaster, if martial law didn't exist it would be chaotic. At the same time,it does exist with many negative effects on the people. Other people think martial law is not simply an emergency declaration. It is the suspension of civil rights and assumption of all authority by the police or military, which in a democracy are supposed to be under civilian control.
