The incident was brought to light following a complaint from Defense Minister Khawaja Asif, who raised concerns about the presence of unidentified individuals within the premises. Asif emphasized the importance of stringent security measures to safeguard the National Assembly building and its occupants.

During discussions in the National Assembly, Asif proposed reinstating the previous system for issuing passes to Members of the National Assembly (MNAs) to ensure that only authorized individuals have access to the premises. He also voiced concerns about disruptions caused by individuals in the gallery who engage in chanting slogans, which undermines the sanctity of the House.

Overall, the Speaker’s decision and the concerns raised by Defense Minister Asif underscore the importance of maintaining robust security measures within Parliament House to uphold the integrity and dignity of the legislative process.
