  Orders of the Day

  Privilege Motion

Sitting No. Privilege Motion Status
9
I would like to move that Ministry of Interior, Government Pakistan as well as the Election Commission of Pakistan, despite being conscious that so far Islamabad Capital Territory Local Government Bill, 2015 has not yet been passed by the Senate, have commenced the process of election, by demarcating and declaring the local governments of Islamabad, vide notification dated 26-03-2015, as well as by notifying delimitation of the same, vide notification dated 15-06-2015, as well as by notifying delimitation of the same, vide notification dated 15-06-2015, respectively, under the powers proposed to be given under the ICTLG Bill 2015, hence undermined the authority of the Upper House(Senate), as the Bill has yet to be deliberated upon to inter-alia consider its validity qua existence of duly promulgated laws: i. Capital Territory Local Government Ordinance, 1979; ii. The Islamabad Capital Territory Local Government Ordinance, 2002; iii. and the Islamabad Capital Territory Local Government Election Ordinance, 2002; mentioned in section 129(Repeal Saving) of the ICTLG Bill, 2015

  Resolution

Sitting No. Resolution Type of Resolution Status
1 The Senate of Pakistan strongly condemns the killing of innocent people in Mastung on 29th May, 2015. While expressing its sympathy with the bereaved families, the House urges upon the government to make all efforts to apprehend the culprits and ensure safety and security o f the people Private Adopted
2 This House expresses sorrow over the loss of lives of the 18 persons in Shah Noorani, Tehsil Wadh, District Khuzdar due to the flood. The House urges upon the Federal Government to take immediate steps for rehabilitation of the affected persons and their families and provide compensation to them. This House also stresses to the Federal Government to establish a few storage Dams at Shah Noorani so that no such incident should take place in future Private Adopted
3 Taking cognizance of the grave crimes against humanity being systematically committed against the Rohingya Muslims at the behest of the Government of Myanmar, which is aided and abetted in this heinous campaign by groups of religious extremists in that country, the Senate of Pakistan strongly condemns these crimes and killings which tantamount to a genocide against a peaceful community, who are being persecuted on grounds of race and religion. The Rohingya Muslims are being literally pushed into the sea, their houses burnt and demolished, their women being raped, their children, women and men butchered as part of an organized campaign of ethnic cleansing. Moreover, they are being denied their fundamental rights as nationals of a country where they have resided for centuries. This is an issue of humanity, not merely one religion or ethnic group, and the international community as a whole must take firm and urgent notice of these serious and unprecedented violations of human rights since these are also a violation of the United Nations Charter, the UN Declaration of Human Rights, all international laws and covenants including the Convention of the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (CERD), and the Convention against the Torture (CAT). The actions of the Myanmar government are a gross violation of established human rights norms since these violations exhibit a consistent and persistent pattern. International law considers these activities as a violation of fundamental human rights obligations, as the State of Myanmar is not merely failing to protect the Rohingya Muslims but promoting deliberate policies of ethnic cleansing, mass deportation and socio-economic deprivation of this beleaguered community. Given this context, the Senate urges the Government of Pakistan to immediately take up the matter with the United Nations Secretary General. The Senate also urges the Government of Pakistan to coordinate with all other governments in the region and elsewhere for the protection of the rights of Rohingya Muslims, including directly approaching the Human Rights Council in Geneva. The Government of Pakistan may also consider dispatching relief provisions and financial support Private Adopted
5 This House condemns the recent disturbing pattern of provocative and hostile statement from Indian Leaders including threatening strikes against Pakistan territory. Such crude attempts by India at trying to bully and browbeat Pakistan are unacceptable and Pakistan rejects this hegemonic mindset. This House wishes to emphasize that Pakistan will never allow its territory to be violated by India under any pretext. The Pakistan Armed Forces are fully capable to give a befitting response to any incursion, and Pakistani people stand shoulder to shoulder with their armed forces. Such statements confirm Pakistan's apprehensions about India's intention to destabilize Pakistan. This House urges the international community to take note of such provocative statements which negatively impact on the prospects for regional peace, sovereignty and stability. At a time when the entire Pakistani nation particularly the Armed Forces are engaged in a battle against terrorism, Indian provocations are not only undermining Pakistan's anti-terror campaign but are actually ending up aiding and abetting the terrorist fighting against Pakistan Government Adopted
