PM commends army’s role in Murree tragedy, directs committee to bring out facts
ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan said on Monday directed the investigation committee formed to probe into Murree tragedy to bring out facts as soon as possible.
A meeting of government leaders and spokespersons was held under the chairmanship of the prime minister in which briefing was given on the current political situation and Murree tragedy.
The meeting also discussed matters regarding foreign funding cases. Adviser to the Prime Minister on Parliamentary Affairs Babar Awan and State Minister Farrukh Habib briefed the meeting on the foreign funding case, while Finance Minister apprised the participants of the economic situation.
Babar Awan said that the PTI provided details of its donors to the ECP and the election commission should also bring out foreign funding sources of other parties. He said that the Finance (Supplementary) Bill 2021 will be approved this week.
A spokesperson for Punjab Government Hassan Khawar apprised the meeting about the Murree tragedy.
Earlier today, Prime Minister Imran Khan said the extremist agenda of India’s government of Narendra Modi was a ‘real and present threat’ to the peace of the region.
He urged the international community to take note of the targeting of religious minorities in India.
“It is high time [that] international community take note. Acted under the extremist ideology of the BJP Modi government, all religious minorities in India have been targeted with impunity by Hindutva groups,” he tweeted.
The prime minister also pointed out that the silence of the Modi government over the call of Muslim genocide by extremist Hindutva leaders put a question on its support to the call.
“The continuing silence of Modi government on the call at an extremist Hindutva summit in December for the genocide of minorities in India, especially the 200 million Muslim community, begs the question whether the BJP govt supports this call,” he said. TF REPORT
