“Modi, Modi” chant in Pakistan’s parliament embarrasses Imran’s party
Pakistan's foreign minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi and Modi
The name that echoed in the National assembly of Pakistan on Monday was 'Modi, Modi.'
A debate was happening on the issue of Islamophobia and Charlie Hebdo published cartoons, middle of which assembly members chanted 'voting, voting' followed by sloganeering on the name of Prime Minister Narendra Modi started.
A resolution condemning Emmanuel Macron, French President has been passed by the Pakistan National Assembly for refusing its proposal of condemning a French publication for displaying caricatures that depicted Prophet Muhammad.
The announcement that was made by Shah Mahmood Qureshi, Foreign Minister of Pakistan that the opposition and government have taken a unanimous decision of condemning Charlie Hebdo French magazine for its publication of caricatures on Prophet Muhammad and “resurgence of Islamophobic acts” across several countries.
The members of the opposition disrupted Qureshi's speech repeatedly when he started speaking about resolution, movement of Balochistan, and how Azadi slogans were raised. Members shouted 'voting, voting' when Qureshi discussed the issue of Islamophobia and 'Modi, Modi' echoed in the assembly when he blamed Modi for Balochistan Azadi slogans.
The initial discussion revolved around the Charlie Hebdo cartoons, Islamophobia, and the demand for voting first by opposition parties. The situation went out of control when ministers of Balochistan raised slogans about Balochistan's independence. And they did not stop even though the government of Imran Khan accused them of being friends with Modi and 'traitors.'
The opposition was accused by Qureshi of following “India’s narrative” when the opposition commented on the failed attempt of Imran Khan's government of removing Pakistan from the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) 'grey list.'
The Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “spirit has been transferred into him” said the Pakistan Foreign Minister while pointing to PML-N Khawaja Asif. “Modi ka jo yaar hai gaddar hai, gaddar hai (the friend of Modi is a traitor)” slogans echoed in the assembly when PML-N and Nawaz Sharif were accused of colluding with Modi by Qureshi.
After the mention of PM Modi's name in Pakistan's National assembly, it appears that India is being alleged of creating problems for Pakistan from Balochistan's side.
