The opposition parties in senate have demanded the Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan to resign after the Islamabad court attack on Monday.
Opposition senators lambasted the government over the worst incident of terrorism in federal capital in which a group of gunmen killed a judge and 12 others in Islamabad district court.
Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Senator Raza Rabbani demanded resignation of Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali after the incident. “The district court remained at the mercy of terrorism for 45 minutes, what was the Quick Response Force of the interior minister doing,” Rabbani said in his scathing remarks at the floor of the upper house.
“Chaudhry Nisar should clarify which version of Sharia the Taliban are demanding,” the PPP senator asked. No bargaining will be allowed over the present constitutional system, he said.
Senator Hamza at the floor of the house said the Taliban should be defeated in battlefield. He called the dialogue the weakness of the government.
Later, the opposition senators staged walkout from the house.
