Parliament’s joint session on Kashmir continues

Islamabad: Lawmakers continued the debate on Wednesday in the joint session of parliament that was convened after India revoked the special status of the occupied territory.

The session that began on Tuesday saw fiery speeches from the opposition and treasury banks.

Prime Minister Imran Khan, opposition leader Shehbaz Sharif, and PPP president Bilawal Bhutto Zardari delivered speeches on the first day of the session.

The prime minister reported on the session of his recent talks with US President Donald Trump about Kashmir and Afghanistan.

When Shehbaz Sharif criticized the government for what he saw as his mediocre response to Indian measures in Kashmir, Imran Khan responded by saying that it had only been 11 months since his party came to power and called the attention of the PMLN leader on the atrocities of India that took place during the PMLN. power restriction

However, the prime minister made it clear that Pakistanis would rather be Tipu Sultan than Bahadur Shah Zafar if India decided to take the path of war.

The session resumed Wednesday with Senate President Sadiq Sanjrani in the presidency.

Human Rights Minister Shireen Mazari, Raja Zafarul Haq, Asif Ali Zardari, Sirajul Haq, Mushahidullah Khan and Raza Rabbani also delivered speeches during the session.

Sirajul Haq

Jamaat-e-Isalmi Ameer Sirajul Haq said in his speech that 100,000 people have lost their lives in occupied Kashmir in a short period of time.

He warned India against the division of the territory, adding that peace in the world was linked to peace in Kashmir.

He called on the government to convene an international conference to highlight the issue of Kashmir.

Sirajul Haq said that, whatever needs to be done for Kashmir, Pakistan will have to do it by itself.

“The government should not rely on ads from the United States,” he said.

He demanded that the United Nations set up an Independent Investigation Committee to investigate human rights violations committed in Indian occupied Kashmir (IOK).

Participating in the Kashmir discussion in the Joint Session, he said that the UN committee would use all international forums to highlight the seriousness of the Kashmir situation.

He said that the revocation of the state of occupied Kashmir and the reversal of India’s previous international commitments were unacceptable.

The annexation of the disputed Kashmir would pave the way for genocide and ethnic cleansing of cashmere, he added.

Dr. Shireen Mazari said the Indian measure also violated the ruling of the Indian Supreme Court.
