investigations to unveil the facts and the hidden faces. The
Resolution jointly presented by Mr. Nishat ul Hassan Kazmi
(YP20-Punjab01) and Mr. Mohsin Saeed (YP29-Punjab10) to
condemn the recent violence in Gojra and asked the Government
to highlight fact and personalities behind this tragic
incident was unanimously approved by the house. All members
were of the view that people involved in such brutal acts
belong to no religion.
Another resolution was approved by the house that was
presented by Ms. Hira Batool Rizvi (YP 15-NWFP03) to urge
Government of Pakistan to exercise its jurisdiction to examine
the legitimacy of the Petroleum Development Levy Ordinance as
it violated the rights of the citizens to life, liberty,
safety and social justice. Youth Parliamentarians forced
Government to stop adding difficulties and pressures on the
people of Pakistan in the disguise of taxes.
The motion moved by Mr. Raheel Sher Khan Niazi
(YP43-PUNJAB24) to discuss the Government’s strategy regarding
the rehabilitation of IDPs focusing only on short term

the future destination rather than to debate on the past
issues. Youth Prime Minister said, during his speech that
Pakistan is created in the name of Islam where every minority

doubt, loopholes in the system but Government is determined
the overcome the deprivation of minorities.
