Pakistani Americans hail formation of parliamentary committee over Panama Issue

WASHINGTON: Members of the Pakistani American Community hailed Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif’s address in parliament to respond to concerns over Panama Papers and formation of a parliamentary committee to probe the controversial issue.

Perturbed over the state of affairs in their motherland, many prominent members of the Pakistani American community in the metropolitan Washington area and from neighbouring states of Maryland and Virginia called for avoiding steps that could derail the hard-earned democracy after years of dictatorial governments.

A leading member of Pakistani-American doctor’s association, APPNA, Dr Talha Siddiqui hailed a decision by the Prime Minister to clarify his position before the parliament which, he said, was a supreme legislation body and should be allowed to address and decide on issues of national importance.
