Pakistan Muslim League-Functional (PML-F) has threatened to walk out of the coalition government if Pakistan Peoples Party leadership does not visit Kingri House to apologise to Pir Pagara Sibghatullah Shah Rashdi for its members passing derogatory remarks about Shah Mardan Shah, the late Pir Pagara.

The leaders of PML-F met at the Kingri House on Monday night and Senator Muzaffar Ali Shah Ali and Imtiaz Shaikh briefed the media. They said that the PPP leaders have always criticised PML-F MPAs in the sessions of Sindh Assembly whenever they raised issues of public interest.

“Our members will continue the boycott of Sindh Assembly sessions and ministers will not work until PPP leaders come and apologise for their remarks.”

PPP’s Shazia Marri had called Shah Mardan Shah a GHQ agent. Although Marri later apologised for her remarks but the PML-F haven’t pardoned her yet.

    She is a very aggressive person who needs to watch her mouth, especially as a spokeswoman for the PPP.

    The problem is most of the peaple in assemblies are not politicians. A trained and experienced politician would know what not to say and its implication.

    It is true but it’s kind of funny coming from her considering the fact that her own father was member of Zia’s Majlis-e-Shura

    Atleast Pir Saab always talked about Pakistan and never did politics on ethnic lines, never took any government position, instead provided the Hur battalion regiment for our wars with India. It was your leader Mr Zardari who was giving out extensions to General Kiyani, so lets not start on who is GHQ agent and who is not.

    Pir sahib himself has said many a times that “I am a GHQ man”. It is the truth and nobody should be maligned for telling the truth. When it comes to PM, the whole rightwing is against Pir. While the biggest of all political Pirs is above criticism. If one is in politics then they are offering themselves for criticism. If you cannot take the heat get out of the kitchen.

    65,000 hurs fought the indian army along with the pakistan army in 1965 and 1971. Pakistan army captured the Kishangarh fort miles in india.

    Can any political party even give a few hundred people to the pakistan army to fight along with them against pakistan’s enemy.

    That is why the army respects Pir Pagara and the Hurs
