The guy claimed General Asif Ghafoor was his mamu lol
We’ve all given hilarious excuses and statements to get out of a tight spot in order to save ourselves. One guy was seen in a video rant making similar excuses. This guy came up with a similar method of getting away after he made a violation of a traffic rule that carried a maximum penalty of around Rs. 2,500/-. Instead of his statements actually working, they backfired in the funniest way possible after his video got viral and he, became, the joke of the day.
This guy was caught after a traffic violation and made the hilarious excuse that DG ISPR General Asif Ghafoor was his mamu
In his rant he can be seen claiming that the Prime Minister Imran Khan is his friend as well as Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Bajwa and wazir-e-aala! He then went a couple steps further by stating that Gen. Asif Ghafoor is his maternal uncle and so is Colonel Farooq.
Also, this isn’t all! He claimed he himself is a Captain in the Army.
عمران خان اور جنرل باجوہ میرے دوست ہیں اور جنرل آصف غفور میرے ماموں ہیں… چالان ہونے پر دیکھئے کیسے یہ شخص دھمکیاں دے رہا اور سبکو اپنا رشتہ دار بتا رہا pic.twitter.com/5N31wNThlM

People were not impressed by the rant, naturally and called his usage of General Asif Ghafoor and other higher ups as personal connections a display of typical Pakistani behavior
This is peak Pakistan. A guy driving a Suzuki Mehran is threatening to involve the Army Chief and Prime Minister of the country for a traffic violation that carries a maximum of PKR 2,500/- penalty. https://t.co/hdWsXYh0Tw

For many, it was just the perfect joke material for him claiming to be the nephew of someone like DG ISPR Asif Ghafoor sahab

Pakistanis, as is famously acknowledged even by our perpetual enemies – Indians, can be funny in times of distress. Anyways, jokes apart, I think it is really important to realize that great connections with people in big offices aren’t worth more than the law itself. Using personal connections to get out of tricky situations has become a norm in this country sadly because of the corruption that reeks Pakistan. Hope to somebody see that be put to an end for good.
What do you think of the whole situation? Is the DG ISPR your mamu too? Let us know in the comments below.
