PTI demands investigations for changing Khatm-e-Nabuwwat clause

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf leader Shah Mehmood Qureshi demanded that a special committee should be made to investigate and identify the person who changed intentionally or unintentionally Khatm-e-nabuwwat clause for nomination papers.

Speaking in the National assembly, the parliamentary leader said that Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif has also called for the sacking of member involved in changing the declaration.

He said that a blunder caused an uproar in the entire country, hence it should be found who is responsible for it.

Taking a jibe at the government over the walkout of Minister for Inter-Provincial Coordination Riaz Hussain Pirzada, he said that it is the very first time in the history of Pakistan that the cabinet member have walked out from the assembly proceeding.

“Where is this government heading,” he questioned. “how the country is being governed. The foreign minister is in US, today a cable will be sent by the US embassy to Washington telling the state department of how much disarray the Pakistani government is in.”

During the session, Pirzada, and other members of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz in protest walked out of session on the surfacing of an alleged Intelligence Bureau (IB) memo which claimed there are links between parliamentarians and proscribed organisations

The list named a number of key ministers, including Riaz Pirzada, Zahid Hamid, Baleeghur Rehman, Sikandar Bosan, Hafiz Abdul Kareem and Deputy Speaker of the National Assembly Murtaza Javed Abbasi.

Pirzada in his speech said that he is from a respectable family, and if he contacts with proscribed organizations, why is he given ministry.
