Islamabad, Sep 13 : Amid vociferous protests by opposition members, Pakistan President Arif Alvi told Parliament that Islamabad has always answered India’s aggression with “responsibility” and that Kulbhushan Jadhav’s presence in Pakistan is evidence that India has always sponsored terrorism in their country.

With opposition members shouting “Kashmir ka sauda namanzoor, Selected government namanzoor”, almost drowning out his speech, Alvi on Thursday also warned the international community that “any negligence” in countering alleged genocide in Kashmir “will pose a serious threat to international peace”.

“We have always answered India’s aggression with responsibility in a bid to ease the already volatile situation. When India violated Pakistan’s airspace [in February this year], the Pakistan Air Force (PAF) responded with great valour and showed the military forces’ operational preparedness to India,” he said.

He said Kulbhushan Jadhav’s presence in Pakistan is evidence that India has always sponsored terrorism on Pakistani soil. “He has confessed that he is a serving officer and was sent to ignite tensions in Balochistan,” Alvi added.

Alvi said that “a Hindu extremist mindset had taken over India” and the world would have to confront these fascist policies. He alleged that the “religious extremism of the RSS was fast reshaping the face of Mahatma Gandhi and Jawaharlal Nehru’s India and had made the lives of minorities and moderates of India unsafe”.

He claimed that the geographical significance of Pakistan has focused the world’s attention on it. “Pakistan is world’s seventh and Muslim world’s first nuclear power. Our nuclear assets are a deterrent to the aggressive designs of our enemies,” he said.

He blamed “certain bad decisions” taken in the past as responsible for “the curse of terrorism” in the country.

Opposition members kept shouting anti-government slogans throughout his speech, and even tore papers and threw them in the air.

They also blocked Alvi’s vision with placards inscribed with slogans like “Kashmir ka sauda namanzoor” (No deal acceptable on Kashmir).

Washington, May 31 : A high school teacher from the US state of Colorado was shocked to receive a medical bill of $840,000 for his treatment for COVID-19, local media reported.

The bill received by Robert Dennis, a Centennial High School teacher, covered Dennis’ time at Denver’s Sky Ridge hospital, where he was put on a ventilator in the intensive care unit for two weeks, reports Xinhua news agency.

However, what was not included was Dennis’ three weeks at Spalding Rehabilitation Hospital, or his wife’s trips to the emergency room when she was also fighting the virus.

The couple estimated that their total bills would top $1.5 million.

The couple had insurance and they planned to call to make sure that they were covered.

“Seeing that number yesterday for the first bill, it took your breath away again,” the wife said.

“It’s scary. I don’t care how much you have covered. It’s scary to see that kind of number and not really know.”

KENDRICK SAMPSON

Los Angeles, May 31 : “Insecure” actor Kendrick Sampson says he was hit by rubber bullets and even a police officer’s baton while protesting in California.

The “Vampire Diaries” star took to Instagram to show videos from marches in the Los Angeles area, reports usatoday.com.

“They’re gonna arrest all of us,” Sampson said in one video clip, adding: “Just to let y’all know, they’re telling us to disburse, but they boxed us in.”

The protests stemmed from the death of George Floyd, who died after a Minneapolis police officer placed his knee on Floyd’s neck for several minutes.

In one video, LAPD officers can be seen firing rubber bullets to try and regain control at Pan Pacific Park.

“They shot me four times already. I already got hurt and I got hit with a baton,” Sampson said on Instagram.

Another video showed the actor backing away from the police, as he appeared to be hit by an officer’s baton, reports deadline.com.

aceY’all ain’t see no police f***ing up white folks when they took guns to the statehouse,” he said, while referring to an incident in Michigan over coronavirus restrictions, not in California.

“Ya all didn’t see police attacking white folks, beating em up with batons, shooting them with rubber bullets when they brought guns to f***ing state houses. We came up here with no weapons, with masks.a And we’re the ones who are not peaceful,” he added.

The actor also tagged “Black lives matter supporters”, and tweeted for elected officials to “defund police”, citing brutality in multiple cities across the US.
