Syed Qaim Al Shah, Pir Mazhar-ul-Haq, Zulfiqar Mirza, Tarique Masood Arain and Nisar Ahmad Khuhro all the Pakistan People’s Party leaders in the Sindh Assembly were indifferent about the fact what their “Jayalas” were doing to the former chief minister of Sindh Dr. Arbab Ghulam Rahim.
Qaim Ali Shah had the audacity to say that it was the public reaction and it was basically a tit for tat for the former chief minister. When Arbab Ghulam Rahim came to the assembly to cast his ballot, he was beaten hard and abused harsh by the hyper-active activists of PPP, and they blamed Arbab for the murder attempt of late Benazir Bhutto in Karsaz, Karachi, last year.
Now that is not the way to express the anguish and anger against the political opponent. At one side, the co-chairman of PPP Asif Ali Zardari is showing brotherhood with every living thing in sight, and on the other hand, his party workers are mocking the so-called national reconciliation.
Though after the incident, Dr. Arbab overplayed the whole incident just to garner some badly needed sympathy comments and coverage, which he duly got, but the essence of the thing is that PPP should not repeat the blunders of their opponents of past.

This is something that should never have happened in Pakistan in the twentieth century. In the nineteen fiftees, Shaikh Mujeebur Rahman (founder of Bangladesh) also attacked the deputy speaker of the East Pakistan assembly, which led to the poor man’s death. It seems the PPP jiyalas are ignorant of history. Asif Zardari has no control over the PPP and if this kind of thing is repeated, he should resign and hand the party over to someone who can control the hooligans.
hey Mr Jan Mohd ..u must either be Musharaf or Shujat hussain …couse no other Pakistani can call the last regime as “gentlemen gvt”.
This is shame for all anti-Musharraf people (they should die in â€Chulloo Bhar Paniâ€) and the so-called bloggers (writers) on this site who tirelessly were writing against PML Q and Musharraf regime.
The latest is Geo, Ary and other channels are â€˜banned in Pakistanâ€™ in the amid of newly formed coalition govt. last week (Aagey Aagey Dekhye Hota Hey Kia!!).
The times of gentlmenâ€™s govt has gone and the times of Ghunndey, Badmash, Chor, Dakus come back and we the stupid Pakistanis has brought them back and now we will suffer the consequences.
Musharraf Tujhey Salam ( You were really great leader, We will always remember you)
