ISLAMABAD (92 News) – A war of words broke out in the Senate on Friday between PML-N leader Mushahidullah Khan and Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) leader Mian Attique Sheikh. The bitter words exchanged between the both senators during Senator Mushahidullah's speech on the government's handling of the coronavirus pandemic. Senator Ateeq interrupted with a snide comment, which angered the PML-N leader. Their fight devolved into curse words being hurled at each other. They also threatened each other. "Ateeq Shaikh is still thinking that MQM is in power. You are murderer of 260 people, you are also goon," he said. Ateeq Shaikh said Mushahid Ullah abused him to which the PML-N leader replied that he will let him know what real abusing is and challenged him to lodge an FIR against him. Mushahid Ullah Khan also warned Ateeq Shaikh that he will see him outside the session. Senate Chairman Sadiq Sanjrani to stop the fight but to no avail. Leader of the Opposition Senator Zafarul Haq asked Chairman Sanjrani to stop the fight and take steps to prevent such an environment from being created. They then grew even more abusive, with most of their conversation censored. Some of the more colourful threats included "I'll hang you upside down" and "I'll set you on fire". The two also quarreled in the Senate two days earlier.
