Pak NA condemns US congressional hearing on Balochistan

Islamabad, Tue, 14 Feb 2012 ANI

Islamabad, Feb 14 (ANI): Pakistan's National Assembly has unanimously passed an opposition-sponsored resolution to condemn the recent US congressional hearing on Balochistan, saying that the initiative would jeopardise the healing process of the already strained ties between both countries.


The foreign Office soon echoed the lawmaker's stance by lodging a formal protest with the US.


Leader of the Opposition Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) took the government to task for what he stated was its disregard of the issue, while proposing the resolution to condemn US "interference" in Pakistan's internal affairs.


"It seems we are ignorant of our sovereignty," The Express Tribune quoted Nisar, as saying.


He also questioned the justification provided by the US administration that the Congress committee holds hearings of issues related to human rights violations across the world.


"Why did the committee not take any action during the regime of former dictator Pervez Musharraf when Akbar Bugti was killed, (Jamia Hafsa) students were killed and when drones kill innocent people?" Nisar asked.


He hailed clarifications provided by the army chief that the military has no role in Balochistan policy matters and the Frontier Constabulary (FC) inspector general's claims that missing persons were not in the FC's custody.


"We always blame the armed forces but we should praise their response as well," Nisar added. (ANI)
