The honorable Chaudhry Mohammad Wasi Zafar–formerly of the PPP and now a PML(Q) elected member of the Pakistan Parliament from NA-76, Faisalabad (Zafarwal, Chak No.562 GB, Tehsil Jaranwala)–seems to be a passionate man, rather quick of temper, and always ready to ‘defend’ his democratic right to be abusive. In doing so, he has sometimes been known to take the law in his own hands (literally)… and he can; after all, he is Pakistan’s Federal Minister of Law, Justice and Human Rights.

Now, it seems that the ISI is after him (thanks to Watandost for pointing me here). I am not sure how to react. On the one hand, someone should look into the Minister’s temper tantrums. On the other hand, the ISI has no business whatsoever doing this (haven’t they messed enough with our politics already!). Supposedly, the Prime Minister has tried once, but obviously was not persuasive.

But lets start from the beginning. I am willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. Maybe, there were compelling circumstances in each case. But the news trail does seem to build up. Here is a sampling:

On 29 October, 2004, The Nation reported that “the Senate witnessed unprecedented uproar Thursday when Raza Rabbani-led opposition members and Minister for Law and Justice Wasi Zafar entered a verbal scuffle and used abusive language against each other over the consideration of the uniform bill forcing the Chair to adjourn the session…”:

The uproar erupted when the opposition started chanting loud slogans against Law Minister Wasi Zafar who was speaking on the floor about the consideration of the bill uniform. The slogans infuriated the minister who also retailed [sic] in the same way. Meanwhile, Raza Rabbani and Wasi Zafar started direct exchange of harsh words…. The law minister left his seat and rushed to the opposition benches after having a verbal clash with ARD parliamentary leader in Senate Mian Raza Rabbani… The situation got very tense when the minister and opposition members came eyeball to eyeball abusing each other and pointing fists. Some of the treasury and opposition members including Leader of the House Wasim Sajjad, Mushahid Hussain and Shahzad Waseem tried to quash the verbal brawl but the situation remained uncontrolled.

Then, on April 12, 2005, The Nation again reported on the Minister’s tantrums, this time in discussing the Gujranwalla Marathon race, where “Law Minister Wasi Zafar and Hafiz Hussain Ahmed, entered into serious verbal clash in National Assembly after they reportedly abused each other at House Business Advisory Committee meeting.” Reportedly the exchange of abuse was very colorful in teh choice of gaalian.

On 11 August, 2005, The News International reported that “Mujeeb Khan, a PIA passenger received injuries when Umair, the son of Federal Law Minister, Wasi Zafar, gave him a drubbing… at the entrance to the Jinnah International Terminal.” This happened in the presence of the Minister.

…the unpleasant incident occurred when Federal Law Minister Wasi Zafar, along with his son Umair, reached the Karachi airport to get PIA flight PK-306 for Lahore. When the minister, along with his son, entered the departure lounge, the Airport Security Force (ASF) personnel allowed him and his son to proceed to the reporting counter without the routine body search passengers are required to go through. At this, another passenger, Mujeeb, who was booked on flight PK-370 for Islamabad, objected to allowing the minister’s son without body search, sources said. Umair, the son of federal law minister after hearing, Mujeeb’s comments turned back and attacked him with punches and kicks and injured by beating him up badly, sources added.

Soon after that, in September 2005, news reports in Pakistan and abroad were recounting how Wasi Zafar had a brawl in the Marriott Hotel in Islamabad where he beat up a waiter in the presence of other ministers, including Minister Naourez Shakoor.

Eyewitnesses said … the minister used abusive language and slapped the poor waiter across the face many times, but the minister refused to comment on it when contacted…. It was reportedly around 12pm when the minister and his family entered the dinning hall of the hotel and placed an order for their dinner. President General Pervez Musharraf’s senior staff member Col Hassan and other dignitaries were present there. Some sort of delay in serving the food led to the beating up of the waiter, who tried to argue with the minister, eyewitnesses said. [According to eye witnesses] the waiter, in a humble manner, tried to argue, resultantly inviting the wrath of the minister. “You are arguing with me,â€Â? Wasi shouted at the waiter. The thundering voice of the minister failed to “shut the mouthâ€Â? of the waiter as he continued citing reasons for being late. It further infuriated the minister, who started using abusive language and then slapped the waiter.

On March 27, 2006, The Glasshouse (a blog on Pakistan politics) wrote:

According to news reports [Minister Wasi Zafar] occupied a seat on a PIA flight which had been allocated to another passenger. When a young passenger brandishing his boarding card politely asked him to vacate the seat, the Federal Minister for Law, Justice and Human Rights not only broke loose with the foulest words possible in the Punjabi language but threatened to rearrange the lad’s face. The shell-shocked young man had to be comforted by a helpless member of the cabin crew who found him an alternate seat.

And that brings us to the current fascinating story about and ISI getting involved. The best account I found was in the Daily Times (26 June, 2006) which reports that “Inter Service Intelligence (ISI) has discreetly launched an investigation into reports of misuse of million of rupees meant for victims of human rights abuses by Law Minister Wasi Zafar. An ISI officer reportedly visited the ministry offices on Friday to collect information and documentary evidence.”

The ISI investigation has been ordered from the ‘top’ after it was reported that the minister had mistreated a woman bureaucrat who refused to approve funding from the human rights fund for 560 applicants who belonged to Zafar’s constituency of Jaranwala Tehsil, Faisalabad. Sources said the ISI might not have interfered in the affairs had damaging findings of the auditor general of Pakistan not been made public. The AGP has confirmed reports of the misuse of HR funds, along with the fresh disclosure that last year a total of 365 people successfully applied to get funding from the Ministry of Law, Justice and Human Rights, out of which 305 belonged to Jaranwala tehsil.

The sources said the ISI official had asked why the sudden row had developed between Zafar and the woman bureaucrat, senior joint secretary Saira Karim…. The minister allegedly accused Karim of trying to “collect documentary evidenceâ€Â? against him. Karim then got herself transferred from the Law Ministry to the Establishment Division, but Zafar brought her back and ordered an inquiry against her under the Removal from Services Ordinance. He was then reportedly told that only the president had the power to sack someone in BPS 21. Zafar later ordered another inquiry, only this time to be told that only the prime minister was authorised to order such an inquiry against a senior official. Zafar did not give up and his ministry is still busy in inquiring into allegations that Karim funded bogus NGOs, a charge she denies.

So, there it is. Not a pretty story. I am still not sure why is the ISI and not some other agency taking the lead; why is this not being done at the level of a parliamentary enquiry. And why are the President and the Prime Minister quiet. They should at least send Mr. Wasi Zafar to temper control counselling.

    Amazing!! My question is why is this guy still in power and not been released of his duties, do we need more evidence. Great to post such an article and expose the reality of law and order as well as human rights reform situation. The fact that it took the Auditor General had to be involved prior to even an inquiry against him.

    And of all the portfolios, we give him ‘Law, Justice, and Human Rights’… so he can trample on all three.

    “I don’t know and I don’t care”. Many of us who read newspapers remember these words which are reminiscent of our Honorable Law Minister …. about the scene at ASF check post at the Karachi Airport where the accompanying son of Law Minister, who also consider himself above the law, used abusive language and physically assaulted a fellow passenger who rightly pointed out to ASF personnel that the son of the Minister is not a priveleged person and should go through regular security check…. When somebody asked the Minister why he did not intervene, he uttered these great words…

    So Sir! the question is not… shouldn’t there be an investigation? It is the other way, why should there be? Dare to ask this question to the Honorable Law Minister.. I can bet what the reply would be “I don’t ….. “

    Pakistani I think he breaks the law when he by passes airport security. Secondly, ironically enough this guy is minister justice which he really reflects in his actions when he starts pulling his rank on a poor waiter by physically abusing him, moreover, he takes an assigned seat of another PIA passenger and rather then apologizing or moving to his own seat starts to abuse the passenger, what bullshit ? Howcome we don’t hear such absurd news here in the USA the media, public would crucify any gov’t official who is so blantantly arrogant about his position. I think he is in enough violation and one is not just merely passing judgement.

    This guy is hilarious! Do we have the folks at Cutting Edge (on Business Plus TV) should do a comedy skit on this guy…he is too funny. Once they do a skit of him on TV lets post it online (youtube.com) and this guy will be the laughing stock of the planet and he will die of a shame (and a heart attack) Hopefully!!!

    It is ironic that people in this position abuse it. Could anybody else get away with this unsocial behaviour? If he is let free what message are we giving to the common citizens. Should not say much about this person in case we have an encounter with him.
    When my parents migrated in 1966 to Pakistan the Indian minister said to them that he was sorry that my parents were chosing a place to live where there was no law. Sometimes I feel that maybe he was right.

    I am impressed you were on to him and wrote such a detailed and research post on him.

    Good work.

    Arsalan, I agree this guy has a track record and I am as angered as the next guy. But should we not wiat for the result ofteh trial before passing verdict on teh punishment. And for the punishment, doesn’t ‘hanging’ seem a little harsh for what he has done!

  13. August 26th, 2006 1:51 am

    Haha.Quite right sir, i was too early to pass judgement. But what i meant to say was that we should have a mechanism for bringing such people to justice, it is not fair to ordinary people to suffer at the hands of politicians who deem themselves to be superior human beings. It is just the absurdity of their actions, and the fact that they go completely unchallenged that can get to one at times.

    August 26th, 2006 12:06 pm

    Arsalan,

    This kind of behavior is best described in a hilarious poem quoted eslewhere on ATP by Adil Najam. It sounds like a mixture of Punjabi and Urdu (shall we say Unjabi or Purdu). It is worth repeating here:

    Luch lafang elect hooa hai annay wa
    Beeba fir reject hooa hai annay wa
    Sui maiN dhaga daalnay wali naukri pay
    Anna hik select hooa hai annay wa

    Each time I read it I burst out laughing all by myself.

    No wonder, I never feel like visiting Pakistan since I left in 2001. Its not a country.. its a planet.. Animal Planet.

    It has to be, where else you could find a competent minister as Chaudhry Mohammad Wasi Zafar.

    And I am Ashamed that he is a fellow Punjabi.

    What about the idiots who have put him in there in the first place and are refusing to let go of him (even though he should be prosecuted for his crimes) even after he did what he did? So why should he not do what he does? Who is going to stop him? I think the General and PM are bigger criminals for letting him hang on to his present position.

    First of all, its really good to see these issues being brought up time and again.
    I was just wondering, isnt it so that these incidences define our society? I bet he isnot the only doing all this. But these is another side of it as well. I think we as a nation havebeen brought up, to always aspire for “VVIP” treatment. So who so ever is in the driving seat, tries to get it either by hook or by crook.It is said that “its the deeds of the nation which form the leaders”. So unless we as a nation not try to change our attitude, these type of leaders will keep creeping up the fronts.
    And aziz bahi, not visiting pakistan isnt the solution. Depsite all this I am always more than eager to go back to pakistan after my every visit. Beacause while living overseas, we can see that there are rewards of hard work and honesty. So we should go back and educate our families, friends and all others.

    Hi ALL
    I just wana say one thing how much we are sure about the news published in the news papers, I was at the airport when that incident happens minister son doesn’t by pass the security only law minister did, and that I think his protocol, that guy mujib khan abuse the minister and only then his son over rect. I agree that he over reacted but wouldn’t u? I am not protecting the minister but I know for sure that news does not show the full picture.

  21. December 29th, 2006 12:14 am

    [...] Here at ATP we try to be as fair and even-handed as possible. We have praised the police in a number of posts when it has done well (here and here). We try to highlight what is blatantly wrong (here and here) when we see it. Silly attempts to spread lies is one thing; disappearances are quite another. They do not do anyone any good and cause irreparable harm to the reputation of the country, and to all of us. To those who worry about Pakistan’s image internationally, we have asked before, and we ask again: Who is giving Pakistan a bad name? [...]

    Thanks for putting this link up there. For those who claim that the Chief Justice’s removal is just about dealing with corruption, how about also including Mr. Wasi.
    By the way, accoridng to a statement by the Law Minister, Mr. Wasi, the sacking is legal. WHY AM I NOT SURPRISED?

    Here is what our great law minister is saying now (The News):

    “ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Law Wasi Zafar has said that attaching the word of ‘Chief Justice’ with name of Justice Iftikhar is incorrect.

    Talking to Geo News the federal minister said that there is no chief justice except the acting chief justice and it is erroneous to attach the word ‘Chief Justice’ with Justice Iftikhar.”

  26. March 13th, 2007 2:17 pm

    Did anybody heard to this stupid minister comments in VOA discussion with The News Bearu Chief last night?

  27. March 13th, 2007 2:35 pm

    [...] Not surprisingly, it involves our Law Minister, Mr. Wasi Zafar. We have often read various reports about public displays of misbehaviors by Federal Minister for Law Wasi Zafar. But this is quite unbelievable. [...]

    It is truly horrendous to hear what the dumb minister said.
    “If you show me the arm then I will give the whole big arm to you and your family” translated into Punjabi we know how dispicable it sounds.

    This guy/animal is crazy. He aint got no sense.
    AAAA why he got angered. Read
    He was angered because of a story headlined “Law minister facing long arm of the law” that Ansar had filed and was published in The News on August 13, 2005. It said the prime minister and Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain would decide the fate of the law minister for his son’s thrashing of a PIA passenger in his presence at the Karachi airport.

    Is he really that stupid/naieve not to know the meaning of the term ‘long arms of law’. How can he be a minister for justice?

    I personally think that what so ever mentioned above about His Highness Mr.Wasi Zafar, the honourable Law, Justice and Human Rights minister, about his worng doings from time to time till the recent misbehave on VOA with journalist is nothing more than that HE knows very clearly that in PAKISTAN there is NO LAW, NO JUSTICE and NO HUMAN RIGHTS just a Ministry with such a Minister….
    Bat karni mujhai mukhkil kabhi aisi too na thi
    Jaisi abb hai teri mahfil kabhi aisi too na thi..
    May ALLAH forgive US and give us few HUMAN BEINGS who can rule on US…
    What so ever is happening in PAKISTAN now a days, is simply a SHAME, SHAME, SHAME on all fellow Pakistanis…

    wasi zafar (he doesnt even deserve a salutation) is a typical product of fuedal culture prevalent in our society. unfortunately, being a minister wont change his feudal mentality. He will also easily get away with his misdoings as most of the people who he is accountable to are no different than him. I wish i have a jadu ka chirah and just one wish and I will have all such people eliminated from our country.

    [...] The last week has been a whirlwind of disturbing development. Starting with the removal of Chief Justice Chaudhry Mohammad Iftikhar by the President, things just kept going from bad to worse. Protesting lawyers were mistreated, as was the Chief Justice, Minister Wasi Zafar embarrassed himself as well as the nation yet again, and most recently we saw that not just the judiciary but also the press is under stress as private TV channels are told to cool off and the GEO TV news show by Kamran Khan was banned.

    True to his character, Mr Wasi Zafar is once again in the limelight due to his foul mouth during the present crisis after an incumbent Chief Justice has been rendered ‘non-functional’ by the mentor of Mr Wasi Zafar. It is very well known that someone else who could compete with him due to his foul mouth is also in the Government and who also, like Mr Zafar, is a turncoat.

    People of pakistan are feeling shame that what kind of people are ruling on us. We are not allowed to say anything against to president , as he is not answerable. We are not allowed to speak any words against pakistan army. Invisible hands of agency has been doing all in pakistan. Who are they. What are their names, Who lead agencies. President and his staff never read newspapers since they come into power. They do not know about street crime, corruption, inflation is rising. President Musharaf never took action against anyone except ex prime minister jamali and now CJ of pakistan. Never took action against any corrupt official, minister. He is the most powerful president pakistan ever have. But he never tried to become president of people of pakistan. Any of the family members of President read these blogs. Can they forward our feeling to presiden, Why i am still positive about president , I do not know, Allah Bless us . Pakistan zindabad

    This is all but yet another reflection of us, the Pakistanis. This guy has not arrived from some other planet; he is one from amongst us. Its power that speaks in our country and perhaps we don’t mind it. I know all the people who have posted here have spoken their hearts out and this is some thing that is so satisfying. I wonder if there was only one person (Mr. Mujeeb) at the airport when those two guys were allowed unchecked. Why there was no one else to speak out or at least support him? All of them would have known that this is illegal and yet they were quiet. I, even being so far from my country, know what’s happening there and realize what should be done against such people. Why then our top leaders – who certainly know what’s happening around them and are definitely not as dumb as not be able to grasp what should they DO – don’t act? I guess this continuous suffering for us is a wrath of ALLAH, which is a direct result of our own endless sins. May ALLAH forgive us all.

Stop criticising and make some step for something positive in Pakistan. Despite running away to some other country like a coward and critising from there, do something and contribute some positive things.

    Wasi Zafar is an illiterate petty crook (a degree does not guarantee education). This is sprawled all over him. He is represents an illegal Government. His boss came into power through a miltary coup, abrogated the constitution of Pakistan (a crime which carries capital punishment) and considers himself above all laws and norms (national, international, human and ethical).

    So what do you expect from this guy? I hope he is made to crawl back into his Chak in Jaranwala soon.

    May God have mercy on the people of Pakistan who hav been rendered slaves by these bunch of crooks.

    It is not Wasi Zafar’s fault. Culture evolves! The President of Pakistan has always portrayed himself as a bully, talks about knowing the language of bullets and commando tactics.

    The Minister’s follow the same culture. Look at Kasuri, Wasi Zafar, Durrani? Ever questioned why they behave the way they do?

    are untouchables, after all the president claims to have the best

    Wasi Zafar is great cancer specialist and has done a lot for promotion of cancer prevention.Who so ever makes nasty comments about him would get squashed by his son Umair And his nephew arshad.He has mashallah kept such a good health by playing Badminton and Golf.

    ….not only broke loose with the foulest words possible in the Punjabi language but …

    I cannot imagine what words he could have used in Punjabi?

    Too many come to mind !

    Seriously, this man should get a restraining order, should travel in cargo hold and a Court’s “permission” to speak.
