Moreover, the members also observed two-minute silence on the move of PPPs minority member Pervaiz Rafique for the departed souls. Earlier, Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah Khan presented the resolution. Members from all political parties whole heartedly condemned the incident at the holy site and said the terrorists could not shatter resolve of the Pakistani nation for removing menace of terrorism from the society through their coward actions. They said killing of the innocent Muslims at the mosques and mazaars, worship places, shrines, markets and other such places was worst type of crime against humanity and those involved in them could not be Muslims. They also stressed the need to work unitedly against the terrorists by ignoring political, sectarian and all other differences. Leader of the Opposition Ch Zaheer-ud-Din, while presenting views on the resolution, termed the attack on Data Darbar as attack on spirit of Islam. Islam gives a message of peace and Data Darbar is a place of peace; which is why the terrorist have attacked on it to damage the very sprit of peace, he observed, while asking the government for making fool proof security arrangements for religious places, schools and shopping centres. To him, the provincial government had completely failed in providing security to the people. He remarked that the attack on Data Darbar was even greater than 9/11, as it was an assault on the spirit and heart of the proponents of Islam, Pakistan and Punjab. Today mosques, schools and police are not safe anymore, he noted, adding relentless acts of terror in Punjab reflected provincial governments failure which must be admitted. It is well justified and fair to demand resignation from the Provincial government, he observed. PPPs Parliamentary Leader in the Assembly Senior Minister Raja Riaz Ahmed said attack on the Data Darbar was a big challenge for the provincial government. However, he praised the successful operation against terrorists by the security agencies in Swat and said the Punjab government should follow the precedent and work with more dedication and commitment to root out terrorism. PPPs Shaukat Basra demanded termination of the IG Punjab. If Datas Nagri (area) is not safe, then the rulers have no right to stay in government, he added. Rana Sana highlighted efforts of the provincial government to fight against terrorists and said the government would leave no stone unturned to capture the perpetrators and all other culprits involved in the terror incidents.
