NA resolution condemns Imran Khan for cursing parliament

Another opposition parliamentarian, Shiekh Rasheed, was also named in the resolution for his statements undermining the authority of parliament.

The resolution says that Imran Khan and Sheikh Rasheed in this way have made intentional attempts to damage respect and dignity of the House of which they also happen to be members.

"When a Parliament, which must protect nation's interests, passes a person-specific law allowing a disqualified person guilty of Rs 3 bn money laundering, tax evasion, concealment of assets, forgery & perjury to become head of a pol party, then such a law is a "laanath" on Parlliament".

"There is no difference between Imran and Nawaz", he said.

Following Sharif's disqualification from office in a Panama Papers case related to his family's offshore assets and companies previous year, the Supreme Court had barred him from holding any public office.

"Today, judges of the Supreme Court must be feeling bad about what was done with the PPP (in the past) which is a patriotic political party and wants prosperity and progress of the country", he said. "No other system can work in the country", it added.

Chairman Imran Khan criticized the federal government for failing to implement National Action Plan (NAP).

In a press briefing on Sunday, Khan, who has an global reputation as a ladies man and at home is seen more as a religious conservative, said he has been a staunch opponent of Pakistan's participation in the war on terror since it began in 2001 following the 9/11 attacks on the US.

He further termed his use of the Urdu damned "a mild word to use" challenging anyone who disagreed with him to conduct a public poll to gauge what people thing of "such a Parliament" going so far as to guaranteeing that most would condemn it.
