LAHORE: Leader of Opposition Mian Mehmoodur Rasheed on Monday submitted a resolution in the Punjab Assembly condemning the hanging of two opposition leaders in Bangladesh.

The resolution calls the executions “tragic, brutal and biased”. It states that executing those who believed in the ideology of Pakistan was regrettable.
