Islamabad, Feb 1: Pakistan opposition party Tehreek-e-Insaf members on Wednesday protested in the tiol Assembly after they were not allowed to table a resolution against US President Dold Trump, who has recently drawn criticism around the world over his controversial visa ban on seven Muslim-majority countries. President Trump on Friday put a four-month hold on allowing refugees into the US and temporarily barred travellers from Syria and six other Muslim-majority countries, saying the moves would help protect Americans from terrorist attacks. The bans, though temporary, took effect immediately, causing havoc and confusion for would-be travellers with passports from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. The draft resolution signed by PTI members against the Trump administration had sigtures of Pakistan Peoples Party’s members as well. When the opposition members sought permission to table the resolution, Deputy Speaker Murtaza Javed Abbasi turned it down, Geo News reported. The Deputy Speaker suggested the opposition to give a notice to presenting the resolution or consult the government on it. At this, PTI lawmakers stood azt their seats and protested against it.
