PPP MNA Shagufta Jamani has objected to the call to prayer (Azaan) given in the Parliament lodges as it disturbs her. While speaking in the parliament, Shagufta Jamani said that the Azaan given by muezzin disturbs her.
She said it can be her personal opinion but she develops a state of averseness when she hears the Azaan given in the parliament lodges. Her speech was broadcasted on the state channel, PTV. Arsalan Ghumman, a member of PTI, shared the small video clip on his Twitter account.
Her remarks have left social media users upset. She is being criticized and slammed on Twitter. Sharing the video, Ghumman wrote: “PPP National Assembly member Shagufta Jamani said that the sound of Azan in Parliament Lodges was boring. I would like to hear Fazlur Rehman’s comment in this regard.”
پیپلز پارٹی کی رکن قومی اسمبلی شگفتہ جمانی کا پالیمنٹ لاجز میں آذان کی آواز آنے کو بیزاری کہہ دیا۔
میں اس حوالے سے فضل الرحمان کا تبصرہ سننا چاہونگا۔

He further said: “Steps have also been taken in India to stop the call to prayer. Maybe the message came from there.” However, a few netizens believe she might be calling to change Muazzen in the parliament lodges.

Senate Chairman Sadiq Sanjrani administered the oath to the ministers as President Dr. Arif Alfi excused himself from performing his constitutional duty. Interestingly, this is the second time that President Dr. Arif Alvi failed to perform his duty for the new government. Earlier, he skipped Shehbaz Sharif’s oath-taking ceremony as the prime minister owing to “medical discomfort”. However, the President approved the appointment of the ministers.
As per details, 14 federal ministers are from PML-N, nine from PPP, four from JUI-F, two are from MQM-P and one belongs to Jamhoori Watan Party. The cabinet took oath approximately after a week of Shehbaz Sharif becoming a minister.
