PA resolutions seeks ‘Nishan-e-Pakistan’ for Jamaat leaders in Bangladesh

Punjab-Assembly

LAHORE: Punjab Assembly on Tuesday passed two resolutions – one against drone attacks in Pakistan while the other strongly condemning executions of Jamaat-e-Islami leaders in Bangladesh.

The resolution against the drone attack was tabled by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) legislator and leader of the opposition in Punjab Assembly Mian Mehmood-ur-Rasheed.

It condemned the drone strikes being carried out by Pakistan. It stated that the attacks violate national sovereignty and demanded the federal government to lodge a protest with the United States and call a meeting of the national leaders and devise a strategy against the attacks.

Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) MPA Allauddin Shaikh presented the resolution against the executions of Jamaat-e-Islami leaders in Bangladesh.

It states that JI leaders are being executed for the pro-Pakistan stance and should be honored with Nishaan-e-Pakistan award.

A US drone strike near Pak-Afghan border in Noshki, Balochistan, purportedly left Taliban supremo Mullah Akhtar Mansour and another man dead on Saturday.

Pakistan has repeatedly staged its protest against the United States for carrying out the attacks in the country due to the fact that many innocent civilians alongside terrorists are killed in the drone strikes.
