Islamabad – Staff Reporter:
Minister for Information and Broadcasting Syed Shibli Faraz has demanded of the PDM to apologise for an irresponsible statement of former Speaker National Assembly Ayaz Sadiq regarding release of Indian Pilot Abhinandan.
Speaking at news briefing in Islamabad this afternoon, he said Ayaz Sadiq needs to apologise on floor of the parliament for his irresponsible statement to appease India. He said Ayaz Sadiq’s controversial statement was much celebrated in the Indian media.
Referring to downing of Indian fighter jet and capturing of its pilot in February last year, Syed Shibli Faraz said it was a great day in Pakistan’s history, when India’s so-called military might was badly exposed at the hands of Pakistani heroes. He said Prime Minister Imran Khan had decided to release the captured Indian pilot as a response from a responsible state, because neither Pakistan nor India can afford war. He said that the decision to release Abhinandan got worldwide acclaim. He, regretfully, said that the opposition is making national pride controversial and trying to portray country’s victory as defeat.
The Minister said they are criticizing state institutions to protect their personal interests and to win some concessions for their corrupt leadership.He said oppositions’ prime objective is to create chaos and sabotage economic stability in the country, but they should keep it in mind that the people of Pakistan will never let this happen. He said gone are the days when protection of personal interests was the main objective of Pakistan’s politics. He said now Pakistan’s politics will remained focussed on protecting national interests of the country.
