After a clear violation of Pakistan's sovereignty by US forces on May 2, 2011 when they did an operation to kill Al-Qaida Leader Osama Bin Laden in Abbottabad without bringing it in notice of Pakistan's government and agencies, every patriotic Pakistani has rose a voice against it. There is a huge rage and disturbance in the people of Pakistan. Many political and religious organizations in Pakistan have come on roads to protest on it. First time, army chief has also shown a strong reaction and a clear stance on it by saying that such actions won't be tolerated any more on the soil of Pakistan. However, like always, PPP led Government of Pakistan is silent and confused on the issue and they have totally failed to take the public into confidence. Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilana and President Asif Ali Zardari are totally mute on this issue of national interest.
Shah Mehmood Qureshi who is former foreign minister and a senior leader of PPP, today strongly condemned this US action inside the territory of Pakistan and demanded resignation from Prime Minister and President of Pakistan after this failure of our government. This was stated by him in a press conference in Lahore. Shah Mehmood Qureshi further said that he will take up this issue in PPP Central Executive Committee (CEC) meeting and will decide his future plan of action accordingly.
This strong stance of Shah Mahmood Qureshi may further pressurize the government. Today, a high level meeting of president Zardari was held with Army Chief Genral Ashfaq Parvez Kiani to discuss about Abbottabad operation and about Pak-America relationships after this action. It's stated by the analysts that PPP government will have to finally bow down in front of public demands to have clear policy about Drone Attacks and such US led actions inside the borders of Pakistan. If PPP fails to have clear stance on such issues, it will not only lose public support (which is already very little for PPP these days) but also may lose the support of it's own party leaders like Shah Mehmood Qureshi, Raza Rabbani etc.
