At a time when the bravery of martyr Aitzaz Hasan, the teenager from Hangu district, is being discussed Worldwide, nationally, the supporters of Taliban Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, Jamaat-e-islami and Deobandi Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (JUI-F) legislators in the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (K-P) Assembly barely took out time to laud his heroic efforts.
Members from both the treasury and opposition benches, who rarely spare an opportunity to talk endlessly on the most frivolous issues, did not pay much attention because of having links with notorious Taliban, when Pakistan Peoples Party lawmaker Nighat Orakzai raised the issue on a point of order.
Orakzai asked the government to give an award to brave teenager Aatizaz Hasan for his outstanding gallantry when he saved countless lives by embracing a suicide bomber. Following Orakzai’s remarks, speaker Asad Qaiser asked Minister for Information Shah Farman to speak on the issue. Farman informed the house IGP Nasir Khan Durrani has recommended Hasan for a civil award. He then went round in circles over the issue of terrorism and did not condemn the attacks outright. Later, as no other legislator wanted a discussion on the subject, the speaker moved to the house’s agenda for the day.
