KARACHI: The Sindh Assembly while passing resolution to condemn the recent string of attacks on religious scholars and attacks on shrines in Sindh and urged the Pakistan Muslim League –Nawaz (PML-N) to discontinue its patronisation of militant organisations.
An attack on a shrine in Shikarpur earlier this week was the latest in a series of attacks on shrines and religious scholars. A resolution against the attacks was moved by the ruling Pakistan Peoples Party’s MPA Imran Zafar Leghari where they said the recent attacks in Sindh were carried out by banned organisations and were a continuation of the vicious campaign against the Hazara community in Balochistan.
In a surprising move, lawmakers of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement, who have recently split from the government and taken up seats in the opposition, supported the resolution.
However, no lawmaker from any of the other opposition parties including that of the Pakistan Muslim League-Functional (PML-F) and National Peoples Party (NPP), who have recently announced electoral alliance with PML-F, were present in the house.
Law on organ transplantation
With transplantation of human organs and tissues devolved to the provinces in view of the 18th Amendment, the provincial assembly on Wednesday passed a law for regulation, removal, storage and transplantation of human organs and tissues for therapeutic purposes.
The law notes that transplantation of human organs or tissues or removal of any part of the human organ for the same purpose will only be carried out by recognised professionals from the body of the deceased ensuring that a written certificate has been obtained from an evaluation committee.
