PML-N leader Captain (retd) Safdar on Friday explained why he kissed the hand of PDM President and JUI-F chief Maulana Fazlur Rahman.
Talking to newsmen here after a court appearance, Capt (r) Safdar said that he kissed Maulana’s hand because the PDM president had talked about the Khatame Nabuwwat.
A viral video of Capt (r) Safdar kissing the hand of Maulana Fazl gained immense traction on social media since Sunday. The picture went viral on Twitter with Maryam Nawaz sitting beside him attracted amusing yet hilarious reactions. The image was clicked during the meeting of PDM leaders when they gathered for a political rally in Bahawalpur. This is not the first time Safdar has attracted media attention. Back in October last year, Captain had been arrested by the Karachi police from a hotel in Karachi. Safdar had chanted PML-N’s political slogan “Vote ko izzat dou” (respect the vote) while laying flowers wreath at Quaid-e-Azam Jinnah’s mausoleum, and the act had prompted criticism from PTI Sindh’s leadership.
PTI leaders had approached the police seeking registration of a case against the PML-N leader for breaching the sanctity of the Quaid’s mausoleum. PML-N vice-President had claimed that the police had broken into her room and arrested her husband. “Police broke my room door at the hotel I was staying at in Karachi and arrested Capt Safdar,” Maryam said.
