Ruckus in Pakistan Parliament
The Pakistan Parliament on Wednesday witnessed war of words after PML-N senator Mushahidullah Khan called federal minister Fawad Chaudhry a “dog”. The remark was made during the joint session of the Parliament which was convened in the wake of India’s decision to abrogate Article 370 that granted special status to Jammu and Kashmir. The senator was criticising the PTI government over the recent developments in Kashmir.
As Khan was speaking in the House, Chaudhry interrupted him by making some comments and the senator, in turn, called the minister a “dabbu” (timid), Express Tribune reported.
The ruckus in the parliament started after Khan condemned the government headed by Prime Minister Imran Khan and said that he had failed to take his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi head-on. Khan claimed that when his party chief Nawaz Sharif ruled Pakistan, both Atal Bihari Vajpayee and Modi had travelled to the neigbouring country to discuss the ‘issue of Kashmir.’
“You shameless person. I had tied you up at home and you came here dog!” Khan told Chaudhry amid the ruckus. As soon as the senator made the derogatory remark, an infuriated Chaudhry tried to pounce on him, but other lawmakers held him back.
“Can someone switch him off… he’ll take some time in learning how to respect others,” Khan said in a jibe at the minister.
