During a session of the senate on Friday  Federal Interior Minister Rehman Malik defending his earlier decision to ban motorcycles said that the parliament had failed, reported.

Senator Raza Rabbani objecting to the federal interior minister’s claim said that the parliament had not failed and that the parliament cannot give stamp of approval on weak legislature.

Rehman Malik stood by his action saying that the decision of the Sindh High Court was respected but added that the move to ban motorcycles off the road was correct as motorcycles provide an easy mode of transportation to the terrorists and were used in most terrorist activities.

Malik further said that he would appeal in the Supreme Court against the Sindh High Court’s decision to over rule the ban imposed on motorcycles during the first day of Muharram.

Senator Babar Awan also criticised the decision to order all motorcycles off the roads in Karachi and termed the move as illegal.

The Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) staged a walk-out from the senate over the situation in Karachi and the party’s Senator Maulana Abdul Ghafoor Haideri said that the government had lost its writ in Karachi and that the government was not serious about improving the situation in the port city.
