  2. Did you ever bothered to observe any thing like this in any US or international media heading; A US Senator badly exposed his illiteracy in Urdu, failing to read out his speech in any forum at Islamabad……….basically Pakistani netizens are mentally subservient to west and can be characterized as suffering from chronic inferiority complex……sabir shah should have proudly delivered his speech in his national language.

    • Are You telling me there are no people who can speak English in Pakistan???? Basically he is illiterate like Nawaz Sharif. SHAME on Pakistan it is now a laughing stick of the world.

  3. Let the foreign minister be shown the disgrace this person brought to our country. There was no harm he should have given his speech in Urdu or Pashto as there is always an interpreter but the moderator had to be informed in such a case. Whosoever nominated him must be taken to task. Free joyride and in return disgrace brought back on a global platform
