    Lok Sabha passes strongly worded resolution against Pakistan

    1.51 pm: Pakistan has been given a strong message, says Khurshid

    Minister of External Affairs, Salman Khurshid, has said that the strongly worded resolution against Pakistan’s resolution condemning the death of Afzal Guru, was a strong message to Pakistan. ”Pakistan has to be given the message that it cannot continue to inflict injury on the Indian state”, he said.

    “These are not just strong words, but honest words. We hope this will be understood in the right context across the border”, he said.

    1.27pm: Pak has no right to interfere in India’s affairs says Speaker Meira Kumar and passes resolution condemning Pak’s statement on Afzal Guru’s hanging

    The draft prepared to condemn Pakistan’s resolution on Afzal Guru’s execution, reportedly mentioned that Kashmir is a part of India and Pakistan has no right to interfere in the affairs of India.

    “We are deeply concerned by the resolution passed by the Pakistan parliament. I request the Speaker to move a resolution rejecting Pakistan’s,” says Kamal Nath.

    Speaker Meira Kumar said that Pakistan is committed in helping India stop terrorist activities and a statement like this goes against the same.

    “India strongly condemns Pakistan’s interference in India’s internal affairs. The whole of Jammu and Kashmir, including the part illegally occupied by Pakistan is a part of India and we ill not tolerate Pakistan’s interference in its issues. We ask the national assembly of Pakistan to desist from making such comments in future,” says Kumar.

    She warns Pakistan, amid loud hooting, that such incidents will not bode well for diplomatic relations between the two countries.

    12.08 pm: Parliament to pass resolution condemning Pakistan resolution on Afzal Guru

    The Parliament is likely to pass a resolution condemning Pakistan’s unanimous resolution which condemned the hanging of Afzal Guru. CNN-IBN reported that Yashwant Sinha would stand up to condemn the Pakistan resolution, and all parties would join in.

    The Lok Sabha has already been adjourned twice as a result of the Pakistan resolution.

    In the Rajya Sabha where the motion is currently being debated, BSP leader Mayawati said, “Every country has a right to run its government according to its convenience. What Pakistan has done is not right and our party condemns it. The central government should not be so soft hearted that Pakistan attempts to stand on our head”

    BJP leader Murli Manohar Joshi said that whatever Pakistan does in case of terrorism it has one motive, which is to challenge India. “At one time it used to say it is a fight for freedom It is in a way trying to attack India. There is no limit to inhumanity of Pakistan. What they did with Chamel Singh’s body reflects an uncivilized government”.

    Meanwhile Sanjay Raut of the Shiv Sena said that the resolution was another slap on India’s face by Pakistan. “They need an answer in the language they understand”.

    11.34 am: Lok Sabha adjourned till noon

    House is adjourned after Opposition MPs keep disrupting question hour.

    11.31 am: Lok Sabha resumes but opposition insists on special discussion on Pakistan

    The Lok Sabha has resumed proceedings, but BJP MPs are refusing to allow question hour to continue. The main opposition party wanted question hour suspended to have a special discussion on Pakistan’s resolution condemning the hanging of Afzal Guru.

    PC Chacko who is in the chair is attempting to maintain order, but is not succeeding.

    11.08 am: Pak resolution an official stamp of approval on terror says BJP

    Leader of opposition in the Rajya Sabha Arun Jaitley said that Pakistan’s resolution in Parliament which condemned the hanging of Afzal Guru was an official stamp of approval on terror. Making a statement in the upper house of Parliament, Jaitley said that “If India can be kicked around in this manner internationally then there is something seriously wrong with our external affairs policy”.

    “Earlier our Prime Minister had said that he was willing to go the extra mile with Pakistan. But after the statement yesterday in Parliament our Prime Minister should not even go an extra yard. Pakistan should go two extra miles”, he said.

    Jaitley added that the decision was also a confirmation of India’s worst fears that the military, ISI and entire polity of Pakistan were all behind terror attacks on India together.

    The Lok Sabha was adjourned till 11.30 am following uproar over the same incident. The BJP had asked for the suspension of question hour to discuss the incident.

    Two days before it completes its five-year term, the Pakistan National Assembly or lower house of parliament passed the resolution moved by Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman, who heads a special parliamentary panel on Kashmir.

    Besides condemning the hanging of Guru, 2001 Parliament attack convict, the resolution expressed concern at the situation created in Jammu and Kashmir by the execution.

    The House called for Guru’s body to be handed over to his family. Guru was hanged and buried within Tihar Jail in Delhi in February.

    Shame on our MPs for not being in full attendance during this discussion in Parliament. The opposition benches were just 3 or 4 rows IIRC.

    For me, the resolution to condemn the Pak resolution was not enough. It was an occasion to reaffirm the 1994 resolution and commit to the nation the pledge to seek the return and reintegration of the regions Pak occupied from the state of Jammu and Kashmir which includes the valley and the areas of Gilgit Baltistan. Any talk about that would have actually helped rather than a hollow condemnation of Pak assembly resolution by a Parliament that was not even half full.
