Islamabad: A video of a journalist getting by a Pakistani leader during a TV debate has gone massively viral online. Masroor Ali Siyal of the Imran Khan’s ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf party attacked a fellow panellist and journalist Imtiaz Khan Faran during a live TV show on Monday night, media monitoring website Journalism Pakistan reported.
In the video, the two were first seen arguing verbally before Siyal got up and attacked and manhandled Imtiaz Khan, president of the Karachi Press Club.
Siyal was captured on camera first pushing Khan to the ground, and then punching and slapping him. The two were separated by other guests on the show and crew members.
Funnily enough, shortly after the fight, Siyal took his seat on the panel again beside Imtiaz. A few minutes later, the Karachi Press Club president also came back to the studio and the taping of the show resumed like nothing had happened.
Here's the video:
