NA Condemns Execution Of JI Bangladesh Leader.

National Assembly adopted a unanimous resolution condemning execution of leader of Jamat e Islami Bangladesh Matiur Rehman Nizami.
The resolution was moved by federal minister for science and technology Rana Tanvir Hussain.
According to the resolution, Bangladesh is breaching the accord signed with Pakistan in 1974 under which victimization of those who expressed support for Pakistan during 1971 war was barred.
Leaders from different parties condemned the policy of vengeance being pursued by Bangladesh government.
Speaking on the occasion, Federal Railways Minister Khawaja Saad Rafique said the government of Sheikh Hasina Wajid is sowing seeds of hatred between Pakistan and Bangladesh and our foreign office should proactively take up this matter with Bangladeshi government.
Earlier, at the start of session, national assembly offered Fateha for Matiur Rehman Nizami.
According to Mehmood Khan Achakzai, head of Pakhtunkhwa Mili Awami Party, there are more than two thousand Jamat e Islami workers languishing in Bangladeshi jails.
He suggested that a delegation be setup to raise the issue with Bangladesh before further executions are carried out by Sheikh Hasina Wajid's government.
The house also passed three bills including the state life insurance corporation (reorganization and conversion) bill 2016, the credit bureaus (amendment) bill 2016 and the securities and exchange commission of Pakistan (amendment) bill 2016.
