A digital clock called “Curfew Clock” has been installed in the federal capital, which shows the number of days, hours and minutes since India has kept occupied Kashmir under curfew.
The video of the curfew clock that “challenges the world conscience” was tweeted by Central Film Censor Board chairman and Information Minister’s Office director Danyal Gillani.
Pakistanis on Friday came out in hordes on Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan’s call to observe “Kashmir Hour” to show solidarity with the people of Indian occupied Kashmir (IoK).
People of the Muslim-majority troubled valley have been held hostage by Indian occupying forces since August 5 when New Delhi abrogated Article 370 of its constitution to rob the disputed territory of its autonomy.
Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan has ordered to amend the
parliamentary procedure of issuing production orders that are necessary for a
detained lawmaker to attend assembly sessions, a private media outlet reported
“Money launderers and financially corrupt individuals should
not be facilitated via production orders,” the premier reportedly said while chairing
a cabinet meeting to discuss corruption inquiries and the economic situation of
Stating that people facing corruption inquiries cannot be
awarded the status of political prisoners, PM Imran ordered the Law Ministry
for further action and possible amendments to the law, reports said.
The move comes after National Assembly (NA) Speaker Asad
Qaiser issued production orders for former president Asif Ali Zardari, who was
arrested by the National Accountancy Bureau (NAB) last month.
Similarly, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz’s (PML-N) Hamza
Shehbaz and Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) leader Faryal Talpur were brought to
the Punjab and Sindh assemblies, respectively, after the speakers concerned
issued their production orders.
Earlier in the day, an appeal submitted to the Supreme Court
(SC) also challenged the production orders of opposition leaders arrested over
corruption allegations. The application challenged the production orders issued
by speakers of the national and provincial assemblies.
The appeal also sought nullification of the production
orders citing that such orders can’t be issued when the accused is under
physical remand of a law enforcement agency.
