Islamabad: Pakistani parliament on Thursday unanimously passed resolutions condemning recent anti-Pakistan statements made by the Indian leadership.

The resolution was tabled in the National Assembly by Finance Minister Ishaq Dar. Addressing the assembly, Dar said that Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi openly accepted India’s role in breaking up Pakistan in the 1971 war, Geo News reported.

Dar urged the UN to take notice of the Indian leadership’s “hateful” statements, adding that Pakistan was continuously working to establish peace in the region, but foreign hands were involved in terrorism and suicide bombings in Pakistan to sow instability in the country.

The Indian prime minister’s statement of admission made this clear, he added.

Earlier, the Senate of Pakistan also approved a resolution against statements made by the Indian leadership.

The Senate resolution was tabled by the Leader of the House, Senator Raja Zafar ul Haq. The resolution likened Modi’s statements to an attack on Pakistan. It reiterated that the Pakistan Army was fighting a war against terrorism and was fully prepared to respond to any form of aggression.

The response comes in light of the Indian prime minister’s statements relating to the 1971 war during his visit to Bangladesh earlier this month.
