ISLAMABAD - Haider Abbas Rizvi of Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) on Thursday said that TNSM chief had negated the dignity of the Parliament and the Constitution by terming them as un-Islamic. He said this while participating in the debate on Presidents address to the joint session of the Parliament. What will be legitimating of the House after terming it un-Islamic? When we opposed resolution of Nizam-e-Adl Regulation and on this some parties in the House termed the MQM as an agent against Pakistan. These parties are changing their views about Nizam-e-Adl Regulation now, he added. He contended that after passing the Nizam-e-Adl Regulation (NAR), Talibanisation has been legitimised. He said that TNSM chief Sufi Muhammad had also termed the Supreme Courts as un-Islamic and judges and lawyers as 'infidels. I want ruling of the Speaker and we need to be told whether the Parliament, Supreme Court and Constitution are Un-Islamic or Islamic. Mr Speaker you are custodian of the House, please tell us, all the people who are sitting here are 'infidels. If we are infidels, then we should be allowed to sit with minorities, he added. Arguing further about the issue, he said, We dont need a certificate from anyone about our faith. If Muslims mean Taliban who cut throats of others and whip lashes, then we are better as infidels, he said. He also said the MQM, from the very day the Nizam-e-Adl Regulation (NAR) was brought before the House, had expressed apprehensions that Taliban would not stop there and now the fears have turned out to be the reality as they have reached Buner. Today Taliban are in Buner, tomorrow they would reach Haripur, the district lying on the other side of Islamabads Margala Hills, he said. Talking of Balochistan issue, he said that situation there is very serious and the government must take steps for provincial autonomy. He said that 18th Amendment bill of MQM, which had been referred to the Standing Committee of the Parliament, should be brought in the House for discussion. He also questioned whether an agreement could be reached with TNSM, which is a banned organisation. The government should have at least de-notified that order before their agreement, he added. He also said that the resolution of the Parliament and recommendations of the Parliamentary Committee were mere jokes. He quoted the 6th point of the report, That dialogue must now be the highest priority, as a principal instrument of conflict management and resolution. Dialogue will be encouraged with all those elements willing to abide by the Constitution of Pakistan and rule of law. He said that all political parties signed the report of Parliamentary Committee. The report was bulldozed to bring the resolution of Nizam-e-Adl in the Parliament on the same day. Haider Abbas said the MQM members were constantly receiving life threats but added that for the sake of the country and Islam, they were ready to die. He praised the media and urged the government to resolve the issue of wage board award, which the journalists have been demanding for the last eight years. Later, Acting Speaker Faisal Karim Kundi gave the ruling in which he said that that 1973 Constitution was Islamic and all institutions working under it were also Islamic. He said the people living in this country were Muslims and they do not become infidels if someone calls them so. Sahibzada Fazal Karim said that Taliban were tempering with the teaching of Islam and earning disrepute. Taliban are doing exactly what US cant do in Pakistan, Sahibzada said while taking part in debate on presidential address to joint session of the Parliament. He said 160 million people of the country have totally rejected the taliban-branded Islam that meant to disrupt peace and tranquillity besides hurting sentiments of other sects and casts. Taliban, he said, were tempering with the Islamic teachings and earning disrepute for Islam and Ummah alike. We cant allow this to happen and we fully support Governments efforts to knock out terrorism in all its forms and manifestations, he said. We cant allow this to happen and fully support the governments efforts to knock out terrorism in all its forms and manifestations, he added. He said that Taliban have challenged the writ of the government. We will fully support the government if any one challenges the writ of the government, he said. He also said that Pakistan is being pushed towards civil war and in this regard Ulema should play their role. He further said the worlds notorious spying agencies like MOSSAD and RAW were hatching conspiracies against Pakistan in Afghanistan. We need to be vigilant as USA and the Western powers intend to weaken Pakistan financially and militarily, he added. Nadeem Afzal Chan of PPP said that it is not time of blame game. He added that Opposition should bring its own policy in the Parliament for discussion if it wants to change the governments foreign policy. He said that Charter of Democracy (CoD) was signed only by two parties and all other parties should also sign it. He said that the issue of Balochistan is very important and it would be resolved as top priority. He also said that the government should give the provincial autonomy to the provinces. Chan said people who had got large amounts of money borrowed from banks written-off should pay them back. MNA Attiya Inayatullah said that war on terror is the US war, not the war of Pakistan and we should not give them blank cheque. Rana Tanvir Hussain said that there is no progress for the formation of the committee for repeal of 17th Amendment. He said that government should resolve this issue immediately. Fauzia Wahab said that the economic situation of Pakistan had improved considerably over the last one year. She said at present the country had foreign reserves worth 11 billion dollars and the economic indicators are also positive. She said the foreign remittances, which were dropping, have increased by 20 per cent in comparison to that of the last year and Pakistan currency has also stabilised. She said the Friends of Democratic Pakistan conference in Tokyo on April 17 generated 5.28 billion dollars, which will be spent on development of infrastructure in the country and for the welfare of poor people of Pakistan. She said the opposition has been insisting on implementation of Charter of Democracy while the fact is that it is under CoD that leader of the opposition has been made the Chairman of the Public Accounts Committee. Fauzia Wahab said it does not matter what does Sufi Muhammad say but there is a need to find out on whose behest the unrest is being created and who is encouraging turmoil in Swat. She lauded the statement of Nawaz Sharif about the growing trend of Talibanisation and said all political stakeholders need to be united to meet the challenges from the enemies of Pakistan. PPP lawmaker, Farah Naz Isfahani, played down the argument of MNA Dr Attiya Inayatullah and said decision to wage war on terror was aimed at safeguarding Pakistans own interests, not that of America. She urged all the political forces to forge unity at this critical time. She voiced concerns over sectarian violence in the country and surge in target killings of the members of Shia community, which she said, constituted around 25 per cent of the total populations. MNA Engr Khurram Dastgir appeared annoyed over publication of certain facts about happenings in Pakistan in the western press. We are told by American and UK media about what is going on in Pakistan, he stated. He underscored the need for holding serious dialogue with America to know how long this war on terror would many militants they need to hunt many drone attacks they are to carry out in Pakistan. He said Pakistan had the full right to ask NATO and ISAF to stop cross border infiltration as vehemently as they did. MNA Kishan Chand Parvani expressed concerns over safety status of the minorities. He said funds would not simply matter if lives and properties of the people were not safe. He suggested the formation of a Minorities Commission to settle the issues of Minorities. Shakeela Khanam Rashid welcomed the address of the President to the joint session. She wanted more sympathetic approach towards the people of NWFP, who always stood by Pakistan in its hour of need. Akram Masih Gill urged all the parliamentarians to take steps against terrorism, which taking place all over the country. He said minorities were facing severe sense of insecurity. Minorities, he said, were kept away from governments posts and representations in the Senate. He said seats had been reserved for women and technocrats in the Upper House, but it was disappointing that there was no seat for minorities. MNA Mehbubullah Jan said MQM needed not get worried over Nizam-e-Adl Regulations in Swat. MQM should understand this regulation and help us restore peace in this restive town. After Nizam-e-Adl Regulation no killing had taken place in Swat, he added. Taking part in the debate, Sheikh Rohail Asghar hoped that President Asif Ali Zardari would successfully steer the country out of the present crisis. Until and unless the person who killed Nawab Akhbar Bugti and defaced the Constitution would not be punished, the situation in the country would not improve, he said. MQM parliamentarian Salahuddin said that President Asif Ali Zardari has fulfilled the requirement of the Constitution and addressed the joint sitting of the Parliament twice in six months. He said that MQM was the only party in the House that opposed the Nizam-e-Adl Regulation on principles. Raza Hayat Hiraj while taking part in the debate said that every member knows the situation in the country and if I suggest for forming a committee to resolve the problems of the country, nobody would support me. The speech in the Parliament should not be meaningless debate, we should find out the ways to resolve all the problems facing the country, he added.
