Comedian Ali Gul Pir thinks the feudal system needs to end if Pakistan is to progress. Pir expressed these views in a series of videos shared on his Instagram account.
He referred to the recent video of PPP MNA Ameer Ali Shah Jillani seen washing his feet with mineral water after visiting the flooded area in Sindh. Commenting on the video comedian shared his take on the existing feudal system in Pakistan.
“These are the leaders of Sindh. Who sip cold drinks, get fanned, and wash their shoes with mineral water while flood-affected homeless people sit on the floor.”
He added that he is not sure if its the latest video; the problem with the video is the ‘soch’ (mentality). He further referred to the murder of Nazim Jokhio, whose body was found at the Malir Farmhouse of PPP MPA for Thatta Jam Awais Bijar Khan Jokhio on Nov 3, 2021. Jokhio had upset the MPA after he tried to stop the foreign friends of the MPA from hunting the endangered Houbara Bastard.

Ali Gul Pir commented that Sindh and Pakistan cannot develop further until this feudal system ends. “Whether it is through education, equal opportunity or development. When people will be given the opportunity, they won’t fall for these tactics. If they have the right to make a choice, they will choose what they want,” he added further.
He made a especial reference to the people actively working on ground to provide relief to the flood victims. “There are a lot of good people who are doing good things in Pakistan during these floods; a lot of people are helping others out. I will share the names of those helping out and will dedicate a post to it. Let’s support the people doing good and donate as much as we can, so things get better for people,” he concluded.
