The Senate and the National Assembly on Thursday passed unanimous resolutions strongly condemning recent provocative statements made by Indian leaders, including the threat of attacks to Pakistan.

The Senate resolution, moved by Leader of the House Raja Zafarul Haq, rejected India’s “hegemonic mindset”, emphasising that Pakistan would never allow its territory to be violated by India under any pretext, and that Pakistan’s armed forces are capable of issuing a befitting response to any such incursion.

The resolution stated that India’s statements confirmed Pakistani government’s apprehensions about Indian intentions to destabilise the country, and that the people of Pakistan stand shoulder-to-shoulder with their armed forces.

Senate urged the international community to take notice of India’s provocative statements, which did not bode well for regional peace and affected prospects of sovereignty and stability.

The resolution stated that Indian provocations, which “undermined Pakistan’s anti-terror campaign”, are also aiding and abetting terrorists in Pakistan.

As the discussion concluded, Haq said Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s statements are in conflict with the United Nations (UN) Charter.

“On one hand, India is needlessly exerting for becoming a permanent member of the UN Security Council (UNSC) while it continues thwarting the UN Charter by carrying out human rights violations in Kashmir,” he said.

In the meanwhile, National Assembly on Thursday also passed a unanimous resolution moved by Finance Minister Ishaq Dar condemning “irresponsible and hostile statements” against Pakistan by the Indian leadership.

The resolution stressed resolve to protect Pakistan, reiterating Army’s capability of giving a befitting response to Indian aggression. It said that the statements called into question India’s professed desire to establish neighbourly relations with Pakistan.

The Lower House took exception to Modi’s statements during his visit to Bangladesh where he acknowledged the Indian government’s involvement in East Pakistan in 1971. It regretted Modi’s attempts at stoking hatred against Pakistan in Bangladesh, establishing that attempts to “sow seeds of discord” between Pakistan and Bangladesh would not succeed.

The resolution noted that such statements “confirmed Pakistan’s belief of past and present Indian involvement in destabilising Pakistan”. The resolution also highlighted India’s violation of UN Charter by interfering in internal affairs of other states.

  1. This was excellent time to remind India of the nuclear arms Pakistan has developed and should have warned them that in case they feel really adventurous then they might feel the warmth of atoms to cool their ardor a little bit.
