According to a news item in DAWN (28th June, 2009), Sheikh Ala-ud-Din of PML-Q Forward Bloc on Saturday must have made history in the Punjab Assembly when he walked
out of the house in protest against something that was never said. The
offended MPA thought that his fellow parliamentarian Mohsin Leghari
had insulted Lahore when he quoted from Shakespeare’s Julius Caeser.
After that, Dr Asad Ashraf, another member of the assembly criticized
Mr. Leghari for calling himself Caeser (which he hadn’t). Apparently
the good doctor knew that the word caesarian (as in “caesarian
section”) was derived from Caeser (who had been “ripped” from his
mother’s womb). It’s good to know that there are politicians in this
country who have heard of Shakespeare, leave alone quoting from his
works. But then, Mr. Leghari apparently thought that all members of
the Punjab Assembly are graduates in English Literature.
