August 08, 2009: Pakistani Governments are failed to
convince the International communities on the Principal
stand on the Kashmir dispute, said by the Lord Ahmed of
Rotherham Life Peer, House of Lords, UK, on the 4h day of the
Youth Parliament session, while talking on the Kashmir issue.
He further added that the role played by the Governments in
Azad Jammu and Kashmir is also questionable. During the
question answer session he showed his commitment to file a
petition against Gen Musharraf in UK and the evidences and
proofs are being compiled to make the case stronger.
The resolution moved by Mr. Ansar Hussain (YP12-NA01)
pointing towards the democratic dispensation to immediately
take concrete steps for granting constitutional recognition
and provincial status to Northern Areas of Pakistan in
compliance with the Supreme Court’s decision in AL-Jihad Trust
case so as to bring the region out of the political limbo in
which it has been entangled since its unconditional accession.
Majority of the members agreed on the point that people of
Northern Areas are deprived of their basic necessities and
they deserve to enjoy their fundamentals rights and after
debate this resolution was adopted by the house.
Mr. Essam Rehmani (YP51-SINDH03) moved the resolution about
the potential of Pakistani Youth that is not being utilized at
optimum and the system is forcing them to leave the country
and work abroad. Members urged the Government of Pakistan to
develop more opportunities of jobs and employments so that
brain drain dilemma can be stopped. Members of the house
adopted the resolution after debate.
There was also a debate generated on the resolution moved
by Mr. Niaz Muhammad (YP-BALOCHISTAN02) that Board of
Intermediate and Secondary education Quetta should not put a
compulsion on young girls to give pictures on Admissions forms
as Balochistan Tribes do not allow photographs of girls to be
on forms, and due to this condition young female ratio of
education will be decreased. During the debate many members
gave alternate solutions to cater this issue so that the issue
of women education and gender discrimination could be sorted
out. The house rejected the resolution after debate.
Patterned after the National Assembly of Pakistan, the
Youth Parliament Pakistan consists of 64 young men and women
represent the four provinces, FATA, FANA, Azad
Jammu and Kashmir and Islamabad Capital Territory in
proportion to the population of these units. The Youth Parliament follows its own
two-Party System, an elected Leader of the House
or Youth Prime Minister, Leader of the Opposition,
a Youth Cabinet, a Shadow Cabinet and
