dated September 15, 1955: Uproar in Pak Assembly

Mr. M.A. Khuhro, speaking in the Pakistan Constituent Assembly on September 13, accused Mr. Suhrawardy, who was then the Chief Minister of united Bengal, as being responsible for the Calcutta riots in 1946 in which thousands of Hindus lost their lives. Mr. Suhrawardy, who is at present the Leader of the Opposition in the Constituent Assembly, had severely criticised Mr. Khuhro for his "reign of terror" in Sind. Mr. Khuhro said that the 1943 Bengal famine and the 1946 killings were great black spots on Mr. Suhrawardy. When thousands of lives were being lost, he was "dancing in Calcutta clubs." he said. There was an uproar and the Speaker wanted the word "dancing" to be withdrawn. Mr. Khuhro did not withdraw until he had protested that dancing was a common word in modern society. There was further uproar when Mr. Khuhro went on levelling charges against Mr. Suhrawardy. The climax was reached when Mr. Suhrawardy entered the House and Mr. Khuhro repeated his charge that everyone in this subcontinent knew he (Suhrawardy) gave "shelter to goondas in his bedroom." Mr. Suhrawardy said it was a "lie of the deepest dye".
