Former prime minister and senior leader of PML-N, Shahid Khaqan Abbasi went into a heated argument with the Speaker National Assembly Asad Qaiser during a session at Lower House yesterday in Islamabad.
According to the reports, a debate was going on in the National Assembly regarding the protection of the sanctity of the Prophethood of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) which was adjourned until Friday.
A separate resolution was also presented which called for the formation of a committee to debate on whether or not the French ambassador to Pakistan should be expelled. This resolution was declared as accepted by the speaker after a voice vote.
During this debate, former prime minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi reached near to the speaker’s rostrum and exasperatedly slammed Abbasi, the reasons not known yet.
“You are making it controversial. Don’t you have any shame?” shouted Abbasi.
In return, Qaiser asked Abbasi to “mind his language”. “You always behave like this.”
Abbasi replied: “I will remove my shoe and hit you with it.”
The speaker responded by saying: “I will do the same; do not cross your limits. Please return to your seat and speak there.”
Twitterati shared their different views over the heated arguments between the two leaders:
Shameful language used by PMLN’s Shahid Khaqan Abbasi against Speaker NA. For someone who pretends to care for supremacy of parliament, his thuggish behaviour towards the Honourable Speaker shows his total disrespect for Parliament.

Niazi’s illegitimate government understands the same language that Shahid Khaqan Abbasi used today and showed the rulers a mirror.#WelldoneShahidKhaqanAbbasi
