"Naujawan Parliamentarian", Chaudhry Abid Sher Ali
In his op-ed “Siasat ya ikhlaqi pasti ka safar”, Pakistan’s apex investigative journalist , Ansar Abbasi has taken the usual route of claiming high moral ground, given the fake degree holders reason to think and then supported the likes of Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan and Abid Sher Ali in their crusade against “fake degree holders” in parliament.
Ansar Abbasi writes “Parliamentarians kee jaali degrees kay khilaf awaz uthanay par National Assembly kee standing committee on education kay Chairman, Chaudhry Abid Sher Ali ko nishan-e-ibrat bananay ka kaam pehlay hee shuroo ho chukka hay magar yeh naujawan Parliamentarian is baat ka tahiya kiye huay hay kay who parliament ko dhokay baazon say paak karey ga”. It is all the more natural for Ansar Abbasi to support Abid Sher Ali that he is acting upon the investigative journalism of Ansar Abbasi and his colleagues. With the corruption charges against Chaudhry Abid Sher Ali it is all the more important for Ansar Abbasi to give as much support to him. If Abid Sher Ali gets tainted because of his acts elsewhere, it will be Ansar Abbasi who will fail in his continuous attempts to give parliament, politics and democracy a bad name!
