ANKARA, 4 June 2010: Both the Houses of Pakistani Parliament on Thursday unanimously passed an identical resolution to condemn Israel’s naked aggression and attack on Freedom Flotilla. The resolution read as under:
“This House strongly condemns the naked act of aggression and state terrorism by the Israeli Government against the Freedom Flotilla carrying relief goods to the valiant Palestinian people, which constitutes a blatant violation of international law and human rights and is in fact, a crime against humanity.
This House expresses its whole-hearted support for the Palestinian people in their just struggle for self determination, freedom and basis human rights.
This House salutes the bravery and commitment of the activists who had volunteered their services for this humanitarian peace mission which was subjected to the dastardly Israeli attack.
The House calls upon the Government of Pakistan to seek OIC, Arab League and UN intervention to end the inhuman blockade of Gaza. It also calls upon the international community in general and the UN in particular to ensure that the blockade is lifted and the free movement of goods and supplies to Gaza ensured.”
The House lauded the bold steps taken by the Turkish government on the issue and also sought a similar proactive role from other Muslim states.
