Punjab Assembly passes resolution to ban ‘objectionable’ concerts

Courtesy: Tribune: LAHORE: The Punjab Assembly has passed a resolution seeking a ban on organising ‘objectionable’ music concerts in private and public academic institutions.

The move comes weeks after three students were killed in a stampede at a concert in Lahore.

The resolution is among eight presented on Tuesday, which has been specified as a private members’ day. Five resolutions were passed, two are pending while one was disposed off.

Seemal Kamran, an MPA from the opposition Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid, moved the resolution against concerts. Deputy Speaker Rana Mashhood asked Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah Khan if the treasury members opposed the resolution.

Sanaullah replied in the affirmative, after which Kamran was asked to argue the merits of her resolution.
