Pakistani chef Gulzar has recorded a video in which he is hitting himself repeatedly over the head with a slipper, reacting to the government’s decision of allowing former premier Nawaz Sharif to fly abroad for medical treatment.
“I never comment on politics but today, I wanted to say something,” Gulzar said in the beginning of the video, adding that “I want to congratulate Nawaz Sharif on behalf of myself and millions of people as he got relief from the government.”
Gulzar then pulls out a slipper and before hitting himself over the head with it repeatedly, saying: “I wanted to express my happiness at the government and its institutions for giving relief to Nawaz. This is how I will celebrate my happiness–by hitting myself over the head repeatedly with this slipper.”
Gulzar then states that he expects that the rest of the people who are in jails will also get instant relief like the former prime minister and people who were committing suicide owing to inflation will also get justice.
He said, “People who are selling their children will also get relief”, before hitting himself again with a slipper.
Further criticising government, Gulzar said that women who were selling their dignity to run their household will also get relief due to this.
