Senator Faisal Vawda stood by his statement in his press conference, the other day, saying on Thursday that he would accept that his head was chopped off rather than compromising on his honour and dignity.

Talking to a private TV channel, Vawda said he did not mention any judge by name but stated that if anyone “pulls down my turban [dignity], I will make a football of his turban”.

Vawda said that he was being singled out. He pointed out that in the past, PTI’s Raoof Hasan had called the judges touts, but no suo moto notice was taken. He added that the Sindh governor, Attaullah Tarar,

Talal Chaudhary and Mustafa Kamal were not called. “I'm being singled out,” he added.

He said that he was ready if someone wanted to hang him for raising questions. He also said that by the grace of Almighty Allah he had been given the opportunity to appear before an honest chief justice, where he would be able to present his stance.

Vawda said that if a judge openly hurled accusations at him, he would demand proofs. “If you give me love, I will give you double love [in return]. But if you bully me, I'll double bully you,” he said.

The senator said that he would raise the questions, when Rs2,700 billion were stuck up because of the stay orders. He stressed that the law should be the same for everyone. “The law for you, is the law for me. The same law will also apply to the judge,” he said.
