It is a fact that Federal Law Minister, Senator Babar, is a thorn in the side of all PPP haters, right from Justice Khalil Ramday (of the Supreme Court of Pakistan) to Justice Khwaja Sharif (of the Lahore High Court), from Imran Khan (of PTI) to Shahbaz Sharif (of PML-N), from Ansar Abbasi (of Geo TV) to Dr Shahid Masood (of ARY TV).
Why? The reason is simple.
Senator Babar Awan was a trusted friend of Shaheed Benazir Bhutto. He is a trusted ally of President Asif Ali Zardari.
He is brave, to the point, and aware of the Punjabi-dominated establishment’s conspiracies against the PPP.
Here are two video clips of Babar Awan’s speeches to public meetings in Punjab. While these clips have been used by the PPP haters to ridicule Babar Awan, we consider these clips as an evidence to Senator Awan’s commitment to the party and to democracy in Pakistan.
