Under no circumstances should our politicians go below a certain level of decency while talking about their political rivals. But we have seen several such examples where not only the decent language was not used, it was rather naked abuses. Similar scenes were witnessed in Punjab Assembly and the National Assembly where members used vulgar language even though a large number of female colleagues and a sizeable number of other ladies were also present in the guest galleries listening to this vocabulary of our MPs. If such a language were to become part of our political idiom, what message would we be leaving for our next generations? The latest such example is Punjab president of the Pakistan Peoples Party, Raja Riazs assertion calling Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz) as 'Zina League departing from all existing political norms and models of decent language. Of late some political parties have started exploiting personal matters of their rival leaders. Although Ch Nisar Ali is blamed for starting it when talking to media in front of the Parliament buildings, he mentioned some personal matters of MQM chief Altaf Hussain, yet what Babar Ghauri, Waseem Akhtar and Haider Abbas Rizvi said about Punjab and Punjabis was also unbearable. This was not the end of it. Such rowdy scenes are part and parcel of parliamentary politics across the world, yet there is hardly any room for bypassing all norms of civilised society with uncontrolled verbal vomit. In no way could this be termed as a healthy beginning in our polarised national politics and there is a dire need that the top leadership of all political entities take notice of it and adopt corrective measures failing which more and more dirt in form of abusive language would be added to our day to day political activities. Perhaps the Pakistan Election Commission and not the Pakistan Telecom Authority should be placing a strict ban on the kind of language that can be employed by candidates.
