On a private news channel in Pakistan recently, a debate between two panellists from opposing parties turned into an ugly brawl. Sher Afzal Marwat, a lawyer who back Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) and Pakistan Muslim League - Nawaz (PML-N) Senator Afnanullah Khan locked horns, literally, following their disagreements during the programme. In the video, Sher Afzal Marwat — in a maroon shirt — was the first to get up from his chair and slap Afnanullah Khan.
Mr Khan, too, sprung into action and pushed his opponent as the anchor attempted to calm them down. A few seconds into the video, the two were on the floor behind the news desk while the anchor and crew members tried to separate the two.
A user on X, formerly Twitter, shared the video in which the two leaders went no-holds-barred at each other. "If you abuse the Murshid, the disciple will answer. And the answer is made! Someone is going to understand them in their language! To catch or to leave," read the text accompanying the video.
Apart from exchanging blows, the two also used expletives for each other. Underneath the video were some hilarious reactions.
"I have concluded that the show should be repeated. This is how everyone says our Baba lives," wrote a user.
"Don't mess with Afzal," wrote another user.
"Champion @sherafzalmarwat," said another PML-N supporter.
Following the debate, senator Afnan wrote on X saying that he believed in non-violence but he was also “Nawaz Sharif's soldier”.
“The trick that has been put on Marwat is an important lesson for all PTI and especially for Imran Khan, they will not be able to see the shape, they will have to wear big black glasses,” he wrote.
