The upper house of the Pakistan Parliament has unanimously passed a resolution condemning the recent murder of Sri Lankan national factory manager Priyantha Kumara, in Sialkot by a mob.
Chairman Sadiq Sanjrani said he would send a delegation of senators to Sri Lanka to personally hand over the copy of this resolution to the family of Kumara and express condolences with them.
The resolution, which was moved by Leader of the House Shahzad Waseem, read that the House condemned such acts of extremism and demanded that the government should take action against those involved in the incident.
It added that the religion had nothing to do with such incidents. Commenting on the adjournment motion, Senator Allama Sajid Mir said the Sialkot incident had brought disgrace to the country and Islam.
Priyantha Kumara who was employed as a manager at a factory in Sialkot, was brutally assaulted and killed and his remains were torched in public on the 3rd of December.
