Unending rowdy behaviour



July 24, 2022

The current spate of publicly demeaning and insulting prominent personalities appears to be on the rise. In an intriguing display of despicable public morals PMLN bigwig Ahsan Iqbal was jeered and heckled at a restaurant in Sargodha’s Bhera services. Viral videos of the incident circulating online showed women and teenagers chanting anti-government slogans and hurling abuses at the minister, loudly calling him “chor”. Ahsan Iqbal naturally castigated this incident but announced foregoing legal action against the perpetrators. In a surprising twist, however, the family involved in the incident expressed remorse and shame over their actions and apologised to him. Though the matter ended amicably but it left a very bitter taste reminding segments that matter in the country that matters have simply got out of hand as was borne out of the reaction of the current opposition leaders who advised the PMLN leader to wear a burqa while going out in public as people are against them adding that there is nothing wrong in expressing views, whatever their nature and locale. These leaders insisted that a thief would be called a thief and if this term is not liked then an alternate word be suggested for it. This attitude is indeed alarming. TW
