The Pak Banker - - NATIONAL -

LA­HORE: The Pak­istan Tehreek-i-In­saf (PTI) on Mon­day sub­mit­ted res­o­lu­tions in the Punjab and Sindh As­sem­blies against Mut­tahida Qaumi Move­ment ( MQM) chief Altaf Hus­sain con­demn­ing his Au­gust 1 speech.

The res­o­lu­tion sub­mit­ted by PTI's par­lia­men­tary leader in Sindh Assem­bly Sa­mar Ali Khan said that, "The fed­eral gov­ern­ment must wake up to take ac­tion against the Bri­tish citizen who is con­tin­u­ously spew­ing venom against the sa­cred in­sti­tu­tions that form Pak­istan." The res­o­lu­tion de­manded that the Sindh gov­ern­ment should raise the mat­ter with fed­er­a­tion, Bri­tish gov­ern­ment along with the im­po­si­tion of a blan­ket ban on Altaf Hus­sain's public speeches.

On the other hand, the Punjab Assem­bly res­o­lu­tion moved by Leader of the Op­po­si­tion in the Punjab Assem­bly, Mian Mehmood-ur-Rasheed, says that the MQM supremo had asked Nato, United Na­tions and even ri­val In­dia to in­ter­vene in Pak­istan's in­ter­nal mat­ters, which is highly con­demnable. The res­o­lu­tion de­mands the fed­eral gov­ern­ment to take all pos­si­ble mea­sures to ar­rest Altaf Hus­sain and try him for vi­o­lat­ing the con­sti­tu­tion. Ear­lier on Sun­day Fed­eral In­te­rior Min­is­ter Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan had termed Hus­sain's speech tan­ta­mount to wag­ing war against Pak­istan.

Ad­dress­ing a press con­fer­ence in Is­lam­abad the fed­eral in­te­rior min­is­ter said, "The hate-in­cit­ing speech, made in a for­eign coun­try last night, crossed all lim­its. Heads of key in­sti­tu­tions were in­sulted." He added that, "Sar­cas­tic po­ems were read against the armed forces of Pak­istan and ac­cu­sa­tions were lev­elled against the army."
