After passing the resolution, the opposition Pakistan People’s Party leaders asked the government some tough question about its handling of the Kashmir issue. PPP Senator Sherry Rehman slammed Pakistan’s foreign policy, asking: “Why are we not able to mount a serious, sustained, protracted defence of the federation of Pakistan?”

“Kashmir is one of the most important issues for us regarding our foreign policy… You cannot build your foreign policy through one speech,” Rehman said, referring to Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s UNGA speech. Senior PPP leader Khursheed Shah said that it would have been better if the Prime Minister was also present during the session.

PPP leader Aitezaz Ahsan said that the day the Prime Minister utters Indian spy Khulbhushan Yadav’s name from his mouth, he will donate Rs 50,000 to a trust for blind persons. The joint session was adjourned for an undeclared period. On Wednesday, Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif told the joint session of Parliament that the Kashmir “liberation struggle” has taken a new turn after the “martyrdom” of militant commander Burhan Wani.
