ISLAMABAD (Staff Report) – PTI’s chief whip in the National Assembly Shireen Mazari on Wednesday served a legal notice to Defense Minister Khawaja Asif for ‘sexist and derogatory remarks’, demanding Rs 100 million for ‘grave mental torture’ and a public apology.

The legal notice stated that the comments passed by the minister were wholly discriminatory and bigoted. In the suit, Mazari also accuses the minister of specifically singling her out because of her gender and maliciously attempting to malign her reputation.
