The Sindh Assembly on Wednesday passed a resolution on Namoos-e-Risalat (S.A.W) unanimously.

The house in its resolution also condemned sacrilegious sketches made in France.

Earlier, provincial minister Syed Nasir Shah tabled the resolution in the legislature. TLP’s Mufti Qasim Fakhri, PTI’s Ghaffar Bilal and GDA’s Nusrat Sehar also tabled separate resolutions.

The house while condemning sacrilegious sketches in France also demanded of the federal government to take steps for prevention of the insulting caricatures.

“It is a very important and sensitive issue and the entire house has been united over the matter,” Speaker Agha Siraj Durrani said in the assembly session.

The house also prayed for those martyred and injured in recent countrywide protest sit-ins.JamatIslami’s MPA Abdul Rasheed also tabled a resolution in the house for removal of the Federal Interior Minister Sheikh Rasheed Ahmed.He also demanded lifting ban on the proscribed TLP and implementation of the agreements signed on Namoos-e-Risalat (S.A.W).

It is pertinent to mention that session of the National Assembly called to vote on the expulsion of the French ambassador from Pakistan — one of the key demands made by the proscribed Tehreek-i-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) — was held in Islamabad on Tuesday.

The government had called the session to debate the French envoy’s expulsion, and a PTI lawmaker presented a resolution in this regard.

However, before a vote could take place on the resolution, the speaker announced the formation of a special committee to discuss the matter and asked the government and the opposition to engage with each other to develop consensus on the issue.
