A heated argument broke out on Friday during the session of Senate between Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz PML-N Senator Mushahidullah Khan and Muttahida Qaumi Movement MQM Senator Mian Ateeq Sheikh.

According to the details, the session was chaired by Chairman Senate Sadiq Sanjrani. However, it all started when Mian Ateeq interrupted in Mushahidullah Khan’s speech.

Their fight devolved into curse words being hurled at each other. They also threatened each other.

Other senators present in the session tried to intervene but to all in vain.

Leader of the Opposition Senator Zafarul Haq in Senate asked Chairman Sadiq Sanjrani to stop the fight between the two and take steps to prevent such an environment from being created. Senator Mohammad Saif said they were disrespecting the entire House.

Much of their arguments were censored due to their abusive language.
