ISLAMABAD: Foreign Minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif was on Thursday furious over the remarks of the opposition parties for parliament during the Lahore protest. He called for summoning the opposition leaders to the parliament and demanded that they be arrested and brought to the parliament if they wouldn’t come otherwise.

Talking in the National Assembly, Asif said that the opposition had crossed all limits last night. He said that the opposition leaders clearly seemed frustrated after they had failed to pull the masses to their protest.

“Parliament has given you the respect that you have today. Votes were cast in your favour in order for you to become a member of this parliament,” he said.

Opposition Leader Khursheed Shah agreed with Khawaja Asif, saying that he couldn’t even repeat the words used for the parliament by certain leaders in the Lahore protest on Wednesday. “Shame on everyone who uses that word”, he said.

However, the speeches by the senior parliamentarians failed to move Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan who defended his ‘laanath on parliament’, saying in a series of tweets today that parliament deserved the curses after having allowed a person to head a political party despite being disqualified by the apex court.
