The upper house of the parliament adopted a resolution over blasphemy, Senator Saleem Mandviwalla presented the resolution, calling for a stern action by the government of Pakistan. 

The resolution raised the demand for banning Indian products in Pakistan and taking up the matter with the United Nation and other such forums. It also demanded an emergency meeting of OIC over the matter.
