Federal Minister for Energy Hammad Azhar urged TV news show host Shahzeb Khanzada on Saturday to end the former’s life.
“I can’t bear going on your show again and you-know-who says I must,” he said to Shahzeb, while intercepting him outside his home when he was taking his early evening walk.
“Take this, and be careful, it’s loaded,” he said, while handing over a Glock pistol to Khanzada. “Just make it quick.”
“The alternative is something I can’t bear anymore,” he pleaded to Khanzada. “The clips are going to go viral, patwaris are going to stitch those clips with my own statements made on your program. That is, if your own producers don’t do it already.”
“And of late, even the party support base doesn’t defend me anymore,” he said.
“Please, I beg you, finish me,” said a teary-eyed, shivering Azhar.
“No,” said a cold-eyes Khanzada. “You’re coming on my show.”
