New Delhi, News24 Bureau, June 25: How many more examples do one need from Pakistan that they care less for even the common manners and etiquettes on public platforms. How else does one then explain an ugly scuffle that takes place in a LIVE TV show? And this is exactly what happened and it was shared by a Pakistani journalist.
A debate on a Pakistani news channel turned into a battleground as the two panellists, one from Prime Minister Imran Khan's PTI and the other from Karachi Press Club were seen shouting and then 'beating' each other.
It was a LIVE show, 'News Line with Aftab Mugheri', where Masroor Ali Siyal, a leader from Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan's Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and Karachi Press Club President Imtiaz Khan exchanged heated arguments and started fighting immediately thereafter.
Within moments the debate changed its avatar and became a battleground where the two panellists were seen fighting and scuffling each other. And all this was happening in the LIVE show and the two cared little that the show was LIVE and that they were visible on the national television.
It did present a very ugly scene as Masroor Ali Siyal could be seen and heard threatening Imtiaz Khan. Imtiaz too lost his cool and answered back in a high pitch. This irritated Siyal and he held Imtiaz's hand and pushed him back.
All this while the host was sitting and when he saw the matter going out of hand he simply walked away.
After being scuffled Imtiaz too got up and attacked Masroor Ali.
What followed was even more hilarious as the Twitterati set the social media on fire with their sarcastic comments and trolls.
As the fight was on between the two there were others in the studio who were heard telling them to stop all this.
The Karachi Club president was then heard threatening the PTI leader that he will file a case over the incident.
The journalist who shared the video, Naila Inayat made a cryptic comment, " Is this Naya Pakistan? PTI's Masroor Ali Siyali attacks president Karachi press club Imtiaz Khan on the live news show.
