On August 7, Pakistan’s Parliament met for a joint session to discuss India’s decision to scrap the special status that was accorded to Jammu and Kashmir. While the Parliament eventually managed to pass a unanimous resolution condemning India’s decision, the discussions leading up to it saw some rather inflamed exchanges.

In his speech, Pakistan Muslim League member Mushahidullah Khan addressed minister Fawad Chaudhary as “dabbu” (colloquial term for timid), leading to a heated war of words. “I had put you on a leash in your house,” Khan said, indirectly calling Chaudhary a dog.

The two politicians ended up shouting “shut up” to each other several times, ignoring requests from the chairman of the senate Sadiq Sanjrani to maintain decorum.
