Pakistan Today (Karachi) - - KARACHI - ON­LINE

Pakistan Mus­lim League-Func­tional law­maker Nus­rat Sehr has for­given pro­vin­cial min­is­ter Im­dad Patafi af­ter he apol­o­gised to her for us­ing abu­sive lan­guage against her in an assem­bly ses­sion on Satur­day. Im­dad Patafi stood from his seat, came over to Nus­rat Sehr and apol­o­gised, putting an ajrak on her head and say­ing, “I re­pent for what I have done. I have com­mit­ted a mis­take. For­give me as a sis­ter would.” Sehr for­gave the min­is­ter for his de­plorable be­hav­iour, and hoped that no mem­ber of the assem­bly would ever treat any fe­male mem­ber of the assem­bly as he had done. Ac­cord­ing to sources, when Nus­rat Sehr came into the Sindh Assem­bly on Mon­day, assem­bly mem­bers gath­ered around her seat and ex­pressed their sol­i­dar­ity with her. Nus­rat Sehr thanked Bi­lawal Bhutto Zar­dari , Bakhtawar Zar­dari, and the Pakistan Peo­ple’s Party lead­er­ship for en­sur­ing that she was re­spected and apol­o­gised to.
