ISLAMABAD: Minister for States for Frontier Regions (Safron) and Narcotics Control Shehryar Afridi on Tuesday lashed out at PML-N leader Rana Sanaullah and challenged the former Punjab law minister — who is nominated in a drug case — to “face trial like a man”.
Speaking on the floor of the National Assembly, Afridi said Sanaullah did not want to face the court in the drug case filed against him by the Anti-Narcotics Force (ANF).
“I’ve been told that he is carrying around the Holy Quran with him. Rana sahib, learn to follow the Holy Quran. If you are speaking the truth, go to the courts and fight like a man. Don’t beat around the bush,” said a visibly charged Afridi.
He was referring to a previous National Assembly sitting where Sanaullah had brought a copy of the Holy Quran and sworn that he was innocent.
