Faisal Vawda, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf MNA, wants a severe punishment for Ahsan Iqbal who is a Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz politician.
Ahsan Iqbal was arrested by the National Accountability Bureau for alleged involvement in corruption related to the Narowal Sports City project.
In a tweet made after his arrest, Faisal Vawda wrote in the tweet that Ahsan Iqbal should be hanged for 3 days as he has brought the country to the brink of destruction.
This tweet got a heated response. Journalist Talat Aslam stated that Vawda mocking Ahsan Iqbal for corruption was peak irony and peak Naya Pakistan.
This is not the first time that Faisal Vawda has made such controversial and morally questionable statements. The MNA has once before said that 5000 people should be hanged in order to secure the future of Pakistan. He said,
“If we hung 5000 people right now, if it was in our hands, the fate of millions of people would change.”
