Pakistan’s property tycoon, Malik Riaz, was mocked at on the social media after he mispronounced ‘quarantine’ as ‘Katrina’ in a live TV show.
The programme was aired on Dunya News. The clip went viral on the social media like a wildfire after his pronunciation gaffe was spotted by a user and other Twitterati chipped in with their own brand of humour.
The anchor, Ajmal Jami, however demonstrated his best to control his reaction after Malik Riaz mentioned ‘Katrina’ couple of times – when he was actually trying to say quarantine.

Recently, the National Crime Agency (NCA) of the United Kingdom on Dec 3, 2019 announced it has agreed to a settlement of £190 million with Malik Riaz Hussain to resolve an investigation into his assets in Britain.
In a press release, the NCA said it had agreed on a settlement with a “family that owns large property developments in Pakistan and elsewhere.” The settlement, it added, was the result of a probe into Hussain’s British assets and includes 1 Hyde Park Place, a property valued at £50 million, and the money in all the frozen accounts.
These assets, it said, would be returned “to the State of Pakistan.” A senior communications officer for the NCA confirmed to Newsweek Pakistan via email that “all the assets have now been returned to Pakistan.”
In August, investigators from the NCA had secured nine freezing orders covering £140 million in funds in U.K. bank accounts. At the time, the agency had said the accounts were frozen because the money was “suspected to be derived from bribery and corruption.”
Legal experts say the freezing orders were on the cash and assets, and not any particular individual. The settlement, they added, is a civil legal procedure that is not considered admission of guilt.
