Resolution moved in Punjab Assembly against Shiv Sena’s extremism


LAHORE: A condemn resolution on Monday has been filed in the Punjab Assembly against Indian extremist formation, Shiv Sena.


The resolution demands the government to convince United Nations (UN) of terming Sena, a terror outfit and thus ban it.

The resolution has been moved by Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) MPA Faiza Malik. The resolution states that the house condemns Sena’s extremist activities. It also terms Sena a threat for the region.

The development has come in after Sena s blind-enthusiasts stormed Board of Control for Cricket In India (BCCI) today after arrival of Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Shahryar Khan in India. The meeting was scheduled between the Khan and BCCI president for much talked about cricket series between the two sides.

The resolution states that Muslims and people who endorse other faiths are no longer safe in India.

Earlier, a Muslim man was lynched to death in Dadri on suspicion of storing beef in his house. He fell victim to the extremist elements on mere suspicion. Weeks after the sad incident, Indian Prime Minister (PM) Narendra Modi termed the act ‘saddening’ when the meat was revealed to not be beef.

Separately, a Muslim youth was tortured in Indian state, Himachal Pradesh for allegedly smuggling cattle including cows. A senior leader of India’s ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) said that Muslims could continue to live in India, but they will have to stop eating beef

In March, the state of Maharashtra toughened its ban to make even possessing beef illegal, a move seen by religious minorities as a sign of the growing power of hardline Hindus since nationalist Prime Minister Narendra Modi came to power, AFP reported.

Sena had also attacked Pakistan s former foreign minister Khurshid Kasuri s book launch in Mumbai. Observer Research Foundation (ORF) Chairman Sudheendra Kulkarni had to attend the launch with a face covered in black ink. Later on, Indian newspaper s headline read, “Courtesy Shiv Sena” in photo credits of the front page.

Why going far in the past when today two Muslim youth were reported tortured in police custody. Reportedly, the boys were beaten and asked by policemen to take up residences in Pakistan. The so-called secular India has resorted to attacks, insults, torture and suppression in the recent past.

Adding to the unjust self-ruling, concerts of revered singers including Ghulam Ali who is adored across the boundaries were cancelled. Delhi Chief Minister (CM) Aam Aadmi Party s (AAP) Arvind Kejriwal clashed with the approach and cited on social media platform that he is Ali s fan. Kejriwal invited Ali for concert in Delhi in December this year.
