Pakistani leader(PPP) Aitzaz Ahsan addressed a joint session of the parliament on Thursday and claimed that Pakistan faces global isolation due to the freedom it has granted to its non-state actors. He said that such actors have been continuing protests, organising rallies and giving speeches in Pakistan’s capital city of Islamabad, Faisalabad and Karachi.
Aitzaz further expressed his disappointment at Pakistan’s denial of having any involvement in the terror attack in Uri and slammed the government by saying that it was not a categorical response. He raised his doubts in the parliament when he went on to say that the state is not aware of the involvement of these non-actors in the attack.
He even accused the Pakistani government of being the sole cause of global isolation. Talking about Nawaz Sharif’s failure as a Prime Minister, he said that Pakistan’s isolation was Nawaz Sharif’s personal failure. A special Parliament session is taking place in Pakistan on the back of the surgical strikes conducted by India across the LoC in Pakistan, eliminating a significant number of terrorists. India had earlier, warned Pakistan against harbouring terrorists on its soil, following the attack on the Pathankot Army camp. But the attack in Uri, which claimed the lives of 19 soldiers saw India isolating Pakistan on a global scale. India’s suite was followed by other SAARC countries, who denied participating in the SAARC summit in Islamabad this year.
