ISLAMABAD: The National Assembly on Thursday adopted a unanimous resolution condemning the Indian aggression along the Line of Control (LoC).

The resolution was moved by Minister for Science and Technology Zahid Hamid which was endorsed by the house unanimously.

Following is the text of the resolution:

“This House unanimously condemns the unprovoked aggression by Indian military forces across the Line of Control in recent days. It also condemns the attacks on the Pakistan High Commission and the demonstrations outside the PIA offices in New Delhi, and the efforts to prevent the Friendship Bus from proceeding to Pakistan. It deplores the unjustified public vilification of Pakistan in the Indian media.

This House endorses the Prime Minister's forceful statement urging effective steps to ensure the ceasefire on the LoC; not to allow the situation to drift; and to take steps to prove the atmosphere by engaging constructively with a view to building trust and confidence. This House accordingly calls upon the Government to clearly convey to the Government of India the necessity to respect and uphold the Ceasefire Agreement of 2003 in letter and spirit.

This House also reiterates that Pakistan shall continue to extend diplomatic, political and moral support for the just and legitimate struggle of the Kashmiri people for the realisation of their right to self-determination, as enshrined in the UN Security Council Resolutions.

This House forcefully reiterates that while Pakistan is committed to working for peace with its neighbors, it remains steadfast in its resolve to fully defend its sovereignty, territorial borders and national interests. It salutes its brave and valiant Armed Forces and assures them of its fullest support in achieving this objective.”

I think the Pakistan NA should realize what'll happen to their country if India shows it's "Aggression". They should keep quite and be content with the fact that in India the civilian government calls the shots and hence Pakistan was spared after murdering 5 Indian soldiers. Had it been military running the country the esteemed members of NA (Not Applicable) would not have roof on their heads.

A typical Pakistani over-cleverness to be seen as victim after perpetrating crime. I only hope Manmohan Singh and company makes note of this as these are state actors.
