NA demands judicial commission to investigate Badami Bagh riots

National Assembley

Pakistan, Islamabad News – The National Assembly on Monday unanimously adopted a resolution demanding the government form a judicial commission to probe the riots in Badami Bagh Lahore, besides expediting the payment of compensation to the victims families.

The resolution was moved by Minister for Interfaith Harmony Akram Masih Gill, which was later adopted unanimously by the house.

The house also expressed sorrow over the torching of over 170 houses of Christians following the allegation of blasphemy against Sawan Masih. Terming the incident as a national disaster, the house condemned any act of blasphemy against any religion across the world.

The National Assembly also demanded of the government to proceed against the people responsible for the riots. The house also asked the government to ensure early reconstruction of damaged houses.

Opening the discussion, Asiya Nasir of Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) said at the moment, the minorities and other citizens only need protection for their lives and properties. “ Parliament should ponder over these issues instead of legislation and other routine business” she said.

Mentioning to Badami Bagh arson in Lahore, Nasir said the Punjab government was exporting extremism and terrorism. “The administration seemed to be helpless to control the rioters,” Nasir said.

She said the PML-N leadership was responsible for the offence and that the Punjab government should mend its ways and policies for the sake of minorities protection.

Asiya Nasir asked the PML-N leadership to explain as what steps were being taken in Punjab to root out extremism from the province.
