Human rights lawyer Shazhad Akbar is spearheading a movement against the US assassination drone strikes in the Pakistani tribal areas. Earlier this year he won a major legal battle when a top court in Pakistan declared that drone strikes are amounted to war crime and directed the government to use all available means to stop such illegal strikes. However, according to Shazad, Islamabad has failed to implement the court order. Anger is growing with every passing day in Pakistan over the continued US drone strikes. Last week several religious and political parties held a massive protest in the north western city of Peshawar blocking supply lines of the US-led forces stationed in Afghanistan. Despite strong public opposition, the US has expanded drone campaign to beyond the tribal areas. The development has prompted the provincial government in the North West of the country to file a legal case against the CIA for killing innocent people. The Pakistani government is under pressure to take a decisive action against US drone strikes. Many experts here believe that authorities need to come up with a clear plan to stop the United States from violating the country\'s sovereignty and territorial integrity.
