Nisar demands investigation into verbal war

Nisar calls for house committee to investigate "MQM's use of derogatory language" outside parliament house.

Express December 31, 2010

ISLAMABAD: Opposition leader, Chaudry Nisar Ali on Friday demanded a house committee to investigate MQM's use of derogatory language outside the parliament house.

He was addressing the National Assembly during a session on Friday.

The war of words between the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) took an ugly turn on Wednesday, with politicians from both sides making personal attacks on one another.

Expressing his disapproval, Nisar asked the media not to air such language. The opposition leader said that a line should be drawn between abusive language and criticism. Waseem Akhtar from the MQM made a similar demand. Akhtar also apologised for using derogatory remarks against PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif.

Speaking on the same issue, Gilani said parliamentarians should show responsibility while speaking at any forum, adding that losing one's temper is against the political attitude. “Politics is all about patience,” he said.

Gilani said the nation has put responsibility on the shoulders of politicians and they should prove their commitment.

This is Chowdhry Nisar who started it all without any provocation . It is very good Waeem Akhter apologized for his bad remarks , though he just reciprocatd , any how it is time Nawaz Sharif and Nisar should also apologize , We sould let go these things and concentrate on real issues like petrol hike .
Ehsan Haq | 10 years ago | Reply What would you call this. Innocence? Ingenuity? Villain? He himself is a troublemaker. He should better watch his statement which actually instigated the whole trouble. And to investigate what? The whole nation watched all the episodes of this drama. His intention might be to perhaps blame the media for showing the real ugly faces hidden behind thick layers of make-up.
