A panelist on Pakistani channel GTV fell off the chair during a live debate on Kashmir, a video of which is doing the rounds on various social media platforms. And netizens can’t just stop laughing as the neighbouring country, it seems, is teeming with funny characters.
What’s surprising in this video is how the panelist, identified as Mazhar Barlas, a journalist, just disappeared from the screen. The reactions of the other panelist and the anchor are, however, worth noticing. The other panelist attempted to appear unfazed — her brows were lightly furrowed when this untoward incident occurred. The camera quickly focussed on the anchor, who bit his tongue and then looked down making a plain face.
The incident came close on heels of Pakistan Railway Minister Sheikh Rasheed getting an electric shock during his speech criticising India on the Kashmir issue. Incidentally, the television debate was also on Kashmir, which has made many ask on social media why such mishaps take place every time Pakistan take up the issue of Kashmir.
And on other occasions, too, there’s no dearth of real-life mishaps events leading to laughter on social media
