Islamabad: The Senate on Thursday passed a unanimous resolution strongly condemning recent provocative statements made by Indian leaders, including the threat of incursion against Pakistani territory.

A report on Radio Pakistan said the resolution, which was moved by Leader of the House Raja Zafarul Haq, said Pakistan rejected India’s hegemonic mindset.

The resolution said that the House emphasises that Pakistan would never allow its territory to be violated by India under any pretext, and that Pakistan’s armed forces are capable of giving a befitting response to any such incursion.

The resolution stated that Indian statements confirmed the Pakistani government’s apprehensions about Indian intentions to destabilise the country, and that the people of Pakistan stand shoulder to shoulder with their armed forces.

The Upper House of Parliament urged the international community to take notice of India’s provocative statements, which did not bode well for regional peace and affected prospects of sovereignty and stability.

The resolution stated the Indian provocations which undermined Pakistan’s anti-terror campaign are also aiding and abetting terrorists in Pakistan.

During the debate, the senators dubbed Indian PM a terrorist and mastermind of stupid statements. They also held him responsible for Samjhota Express incident and Gujarat carnage.

The Senate said that Modi is killer of Gandhi and Indian people will soon besiege him. Indian interference in Balochistan and other areas of Pakistan is intolerable and the UN should take notice of it.

Meanwhile, the National Assembly on Thursday also passed a unanimous resolution condemning irresponsible and hostile statements against Pakistan from the Indian leadership.

The resolution, moved by Finance Minister Ishaq Dar, affirmed that Pakistan will never allow any country to violate its territory under any pretext.

It said people of Pakistan and armed forces are fully capable of protecting sovereignty, and territorial integrity of Pakistan and would give a befitting response to any hostility from India.

Through the resolution, the National Assembly urged the international community, especially the United Nations, to take notice of such provocative statements by Indian leadership which not only negatively impact but are a direct threat for prospects of regional peace and stability.

The resolution said statements by Indian leaders call into question India’s desire to establish good neighbourly relations with Pakistan.

The House took serious exception to statement of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his visit to Bangladesh in which he acknowledged Indian Government’s conspiracy and involvement in the events of 1971 in the then East Pakistan.

The resolution said such statements confirm Pakistan’s belief about past and present Indian involvement in destabilising Pakistan.

The resolution said it was an irony that Modi was making a case for India’s permanent membership of UN Security Council while it has been violating UN Security Council’s resolutions on Jammu and Kashmir as well as interfering in the internal affairs of other states in violation of the UN charter.

It regretted that the Indian Prime Minister made such a statement in Bangladesh, which is aimed at stoking hatred against Pakistan. Indian attempts to sow seeds of discord between people of Pakistan and Bangladesh will never succeed.
