I was watching the dramatic developments regarding Chief Justice of PakistanÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s case on GEO news today and wondering how much more we have to see after seeing police misbehaving with Chief Justice and his family.
Little did I know what was in store for me. During Kamran KhanÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s show, Ansaar Abassi – investigative editor of The News, Islamabad – brought viewers attention to a shocking incident which happened during a live Voice of America ( VOA ) radio show interview (Round Table) yesterday (Listen by clicking audio symbol below)
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.
Listen to the abusive language after the 34th minutes in particular. But also listen to the tone of the discussion of the entire interview in general. This, then, is our Federal Law Minister in action. Its worth hearing.
The Federal Minister said all this in response to a story by the investigative editor The News in which he wrote about the Law Minister’s “long arm of law.” Apparently he doesnÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t know the difference between long arm and giving “a big hand.”
Listen to the clip and judge for yourself. I am just speechless!
