ISLAMABAD: PML-N lawmaker Javed Latif on Friday admitted that he had used indecent words against PTI lawmaker Murad Saeed. Talking to reporters outside the National Assembly, Latif said he would not go into the details of whether what he said "was right or wrong", but acknowledged that he should not have passed indecent remarks. A day earlier, PTI lawmaker Murad Saeed punched Latif in his face after he swore at the PTI lawmaker.

Footage of the incident showed Saeed attempting to assault Latif as the latter was leaving Parliament premises. Talking to media after the scuffle, Latif passed slanderous and offensive remarks about Saeed's sisters.

Deflecting criticism for his lewd comments, the MNA also accused PTI Chairman Imran Khan of stoking hatred among his MNAs. "Khan made a statement that he would have gone 10 steps further had he been there. Are these the values he imparts on his workers?"Latif said during his 'apology'. "Instead of teaching Saeed, Khan is justifying Saeed's actions," Latif said. The PML-N lawmakers are 'good' at passing slanderous remarks at women lawmakers.

PML-N leader Khawaja Asif also has some history of making disagreeable and insulting comments towards women in the House. Asif once called Begum Mehnaz Rafi of the PML-Q, who walked with a limp, a 'penguin'. Although he was reprimanded by women parliamentarians across the board, it did not seem to make any difference to the politician who according to Nawaz Sharif was "brain of Pakistan".
