DUBAI- The Walima ceremony of ex-governor Sindh Dr Ishratul Ebad’s son turned into a political gathering as political stalwarts including former president Asif Ali Zardari, Bilawal Bhutto, Murad Ali Shah and other party leaders attended the event.
The walima ceremony of Arbaz-ul-Ebad was held at Asateer Atlantis in Dubai’s Jumeirah area on Thursday and personalities from politics to show-business became part of the glittering ceremony.
Other PPP leaders including Rehman Malik, Babar Awan, Owais Muzzaffar and Sharjeel Memon attended the event.
On the other hand Awami Muslim League Chief Shaikh Rasheed Ahmed, Arbab Ghulam Rahim, MQM’s Saleem Shehzad and renowned media giant Dr. Aamir Liaquat along with Waseem Badami were also among the guests.
There were reports of arrival of former president Gen. (retd) Pervez Musharraf, being invited. However, Dr Ebad said Musharraf would not be attending the event as he had attended the ‘Mehndi’ function.
With presence of political cream of the country, the ceremony looked more like a corner meeting where everyone was exchanging views regarding Pakistan’s political situation and especially the arrival of Asif Zardari in Pakistan.
The federal government recently replaced Dr. Ishrat ul Ebad with Saeed Uz Zaman Siddiqui as the new governor of Sindh.
