Royal Rumble in Pakistan's Parliament

Royal Rumble broke out in Pakistan's Parliament and distinctly non-parliamentary language filled the air. This unsavoury clash between the Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) and Mutahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) legislators revived memories of similar transgressions in the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE). 

Royal Rumble between PML-N legislators and MQM members broke out during a fiery speech by Opposition Leader Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan, who launched an attack on MQM and demanded that Dr Zulfiqar Mirza bring his briefcase of evidence against the MQM to parliament rather than taking it to London. He also demanded a debate on the charges made against the MQM.

Things got worse with the PML-N MNA’s Abid Sher Ali and Hanif Abbasi and some MQM MNAs almost coming to blows.
