Journalist ‘mocked’ for ‘humorously’ reporting in detail about army chief lunch

A journalist, named Saleh Zaafir, known for covering Parliament was trolled online for in-depth yet amusing reporting about Army Chief’s family lunch in Islamabad.

According to a report published in The News, its content reads: “Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa had Sunday brunch with his family at Islamabad Club and freely mingled up with other guests present in the club.

He picked his food by holding his plate and waited for in a queue to collect his egg omelet. He didn’t ask for any favour. Interestingly the club administration raised screen for separation of seating for the General and his family, but he asked for removal of curtain.

At around 12noon, General Bajwa came along with his family and sat on one of the side chairs. It was amazing to see that he and his family joined the other guests in taking the food standing in line for their turn,” the report concludes.

A number of social media users trolled the journos for reporting this humorously about the COAS gathering.

One user wrote: “General Bajwa waited in a queue to get anda and didn’t ask for any favors. RT IF YOU CRIED”.
