ISLAMABAD - Assuring Pakistan's continued support to Kashmiris for their right to self-determination, National Assembly (NA) on Monday unanimously adopted a resolution and urged the international community to take effective steps for safeguarding the human rights of Kashmiri people.

The resolution, moved by Minister for Kashmir and Gilgit-Baltistan Affairs Chaudhry Barjees Tahir, stressed the importance of sustained international engagement to facilitate a just and peaceful solution of the Jammu and Kashmir. The resolution lauded the valiant people of Jammu and Kashmir for resisting Indian occupation despite brutal atrocities being perpetrated by the Indian security forces. The house also reiterated its continued political, moral and diplomatic support to the just struggle of the people of Jammu and Kashmir towards achieving their right to self-determination enshrined in numerous UN resolutions.

The house also expressed concern over the violation of the human rights of Kashmiri people including the denial of their inalienable right to self-determination.

Denouncing the killing of the innocent Kashmiris, continued arrests and detention of Kashmiri leaders, the house called upon India to release all political prisoners, especially the leadership of Kashmiri people.

The house also called upon India to put an end to the sufferings of the people of Jammu and Kashmir by completely repealing all draconian laws implemented in Indian Occupied Kashmir.

It also reaffirmed that elections held in Jammu and Kashmir are not a substitute to the plebiscite under UN auspices in accordance with the UN Security Council and UNCIP resolution. The house also called upon the UN to enforce implementation of the relevant UN resolutions promising the right to self-determination to the people of Jammu and Kashmir.

The house also passed another resolution condemning suicide attack on Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (Fazl) Maulana Fazlur Rahman, considering it a part of internal and external conspiracy against democratic system and Pakistan. "It is an attempt to push Pakistan towards civil war just like Libya, Iraq and Syria," says a resolution, asking the government to conduct judicial inquiry and submit report in the house. The house also asked for compensation for martyrs and injured in this incident. "Those who were responsible should be punished and exposed," says the resolution.

The lawmakers from both sides of the aisle strongly condemned suicide attack on Maulana Fazlur Rahman, terming it a planned conspiracy to weaken democratic system.

"This attack is a part of conspiracy to unstable Pakistan and its democratic system," said Opposition Leader Syed Khursheed Shah, strongly condemning attack on the JUI-F chief. "They want to weaken our country so that we could not protect our geographical boundaries," Shah said asking the government to enhance intelligence system to avoid nefarious aims of enemies of country.

Taking the floor, JUI-F chief Maulana Fazlur Rahman considered it an international conspiracy against Pakistan to create situation like Iraq and Syria by targeting religious and political figures who believe in peace.

"The back-to-back attacks on me are an attempt to silence moderate religious voices," said Maulana, who received much applause and desk-thumping, on his arrival in the house.

He said that there had been chaos in the Islamic world for the last few years.

Maulana further said that lawlessness prevailing in the Middle East is being introduced in Afghan areas and Pakistan's Pashtun belt. "It is time to think that war on terror is the need of the US and we are only being pushed for it," he said, adding Pakistan's wish for peace, democracy and constitution are irking international forces. "They want chaos and unrest in a bid to pave way for interference," he said.

He also said that these forces have been promoting Jewish culture in the country for the last two years. He also cited the example of recent establishment of Israel's stall at an event of Islamic International University (IIU) and said it was also a part of Jewish agenda.

The JUI-F chief, in a covert attack, said that he with other moderate political forces exposed the London plan against Pakistan. He said that they were raising mantra of 'Jewish lobby' and now it has been exposed.

He also held bureaucracy responsible in some context for promoting international conspiracy against Pakistan.

Taking the floor, Opposition Leader Syed Khursheed Shah mentioned an incident of London and termed it an attempt to Kashmir solidarity by a political party. "This was part of conspiracy which promotes the Jewish agenda," he said without naming any political party.

Adding his share, Minister for Defence Khawaja Asif clearly referred to sit-ins of protesting parties PAT and PTI, and said these forces are not in favour of seeing Pakistan as stable country. "It is part of conspiracy being hatched for the last 12 years," he added.

Other lawmakers including Rashid Godil, Sahibzada Tariq Ullah, Aijazul Haq, Ghafoor Haideri and Abdul Qadir Baloch also condemned the incident of attack on Maulana Fazlur Rahman.

Earlier, Khawaja Asif also appealed to MQM to end tension with PPP over the issue of Khursheed Shah.
