Second Session

Mr. Mateeullah Tareen (YP04-Balochistan03), Mr. Hazrat Wali Kakar (YP02-Balochistan), Mr. Rafiullah Kakar (YP06-Balochistan), Mr. Usman Jilani (YP13-KP03), Mr. Inam Ullah Marwat (YP14-KP04) and Ms. Sharmeen Qamar (YP43-PUNJAB26) would like to move the following resolution: “This House is of the opinion that immediate step shall be taken for the repatriation of Afghan refugees. The Residential and Proof of Registration cards issued to Afghan refugees had expired on 31 December, 2012. As decided by Tripartite Commission (2 delegates each from each from Afghan, Pakistan and UNHCR) the refugees repatriation should have started by the end of 2012 but this did not happen. Refugee camps have become safe havens for the terrorist and banned outfits. These camps are producing man power for the TPP and outlawed organizations. Moreover, they are burden on the limited health, education, water and sanitation facilities of the host community. Therefore, government shall take steps for the removal of Afghan refugee camps and their immediate repatriation.”

Ms. Sharmeen Qamar (YP43-Punjab26) would like to move the following resolution:“This House is of the opinion that the Right of assembly and Right to protest are fundamental human rights. But at times such protests are turned into a mob of loot and arson by rabble rousing speakers and hate speech mongers with grave consequences for life and public-private property. This resolution asks the house to legislate that all losses incurred as such will be recovered from the organizers along with full enforcement of rule of law.”
