Pakistan Peoples Party on Tuesday issued a show-cause notice to its leader Nabeel Gabol for making an insensitive comment about rape in a podcast. In the video of the podcast, which went viral on social media, Mr Gabol used the example of rape to talk about being overpowered by the opposition and said some seriously disturbing things like “when rape is imminent, just enjoy it”.
The notice issued by PPP Sindh president Nisar Khuhro asked Mr Gabol to explain his remarks within three days. In case of non-clarification, it added, organisational disciplinary action will be taken against him.
“Inappropriate conversation and use of un-parliamentary words are not the policy of PPP,” according to a spokesperson for the party.
