ISLAMABAD - Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) protested in the National Assembly on Monday against the statement of Tehreek-e-Nifaz-e-Shariat-e-Mohammadi (TNSM) chief Maulana Sufi Muhammad that superior courts (Supreme and high courts) of the country were un-Islamic and demanded Speakers ruling on it. Dr Farooq Sattar of MQM on a point of order said that his party wants ruling of the Speaker about Sufis statement as he has termed the state structure and judicial system of the country as un-Islamic. He also said that the NWFP government and the TNSM have signed the Nizam-e-Adl Regulation and National Assembly has supported it by passing a resolution. He further said that the TNSM chief has also termed many clauses of the Constitution as un-Islamic asked the House, Please tell us whether we are part of the Islamic or un-Islamic Parliament? He also said, One man has challenged our faith and we must respond to it. Responding to the criticism of MQM, Advisor to Prime Minister on Interior Rehman Malik told the Lower House that the whole country is being run under the Constitution. He said that he had asked the NWFP government to provide him the original text of Sufi Muhamamds statement. He also said that Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani wants reconciliation between the MQM and ANP and in this regard the heads of both the parties, Altaf Hussain and Asfandyar Wali, have held telephonic conversation. He assured the House that the matter would be resolved within 24 hours. Federal Minister for Privatisation Naveed Qamar said that Pakistan is an Islamic country and it is being governed under the Constitution. We are Muslim and for that matter we do not need any Fathwa from any one. While discussing the Presidents address to the joint sitting of the Parliament, Marvi Mamon of PML-Q said that writ of the state has been damaged in Balochistan, NWFP, FATA and PATA. She said that the PML-Q supported Nizam-e-Adl Regulation only for peace in Swat. We do not accept Talibanisation under the garb of this regulation and their interpretation of Islam. Sher Muhmmad Baloch of PPP said that the National Assembly has passed resolution unanimously about Nizam-e-Adl Regulation. It is decision of the Parliament and no one can challenge it, he added. He appreciated the role of the President and the Prime Minster to unite different political forces of the country for peace and stability. He strongly condemned the killing of Baloch leaders in Balochistan and termed it a part of a conspiracy against the country. Sardar Bahadur Ahmed Khan Sihar of PML-Q said that Pakistan could be pulled out of crises by implementing the Charter of Democracy in its true sprit. This document can create political harmony among all political parties. The CoD should be brought in the Parliament for its implementation. It is need of the hour to establish Truth Commission for reconciliation among all political parties and seek apology from the nation for the misdeeds made by them in the past. Jamashid Dastti, Yasmeen Rehman, Jam Mohammad Yousaf, Dr Ayatullah Durrani also participated in the debate. Meanwhile, Sheikh Waqqas Akram of PML-Q staged a walkout from the National Assembly in protest against loadshedding in his constituency and unavailability of the concerned Minster in the House for answering his question. On a point of order, he said that 20 hours loadshedding in 24 hours in his constituency has seriously affected industries, especially textiles (Power looms). Federal Minister for Labour Syed Khurshid Ahmed Shah told the House Minister of Water and Power should have been available to satisfy the concerned member. He said that the government is taking steps to overcome the loadshedding. Online adds: Treasury and opposition members of National Assembly from South Punjab have demanded for a new province in the name of South Punjab besides drawing the attention of the house to a sense of deprivation prevailing among the people of Southern Punjab and stressed the sense should be removed. Participating in the debate over presidential address to the joint session of parliament, minister of state for industries and production, Dr Ayatollah Durrani said president Asif Zardari announced the largest economic package for the backward province Balochistan. President avoided the politics of inflexibility, he added. Sardar Bahadur Khan Sehar said provincial autonomy was not only enough but regional autonomy was also needed. Injustice is being done to South Punjab consistently, he added. Jamshid Dasti demanded southern Punjab be made a separate province. Moulvi will come if justice is not provided.
