Senate Sardar Yaqoob Khan Nasar, is a close ally of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and one of his rather embarrassing claims to fame are his controversial comments on “poor people” which he expressed in the a meeting of Senate Fucntional Committee on Devolution in 2016.
he stated ‘the poor are born to serve the rich,’ the comment adhered to a massive shock and backlash from the attendees. the statement came following a discussion with PPPs Senator Taj who stated that the rich are exploiting the poor.
“We have sent hundreds of thousands of Pakistanis abroad to work as labour and send foreign exchange; [apparently] in the national interest and claimed that soon it will be proved that offshore companies were also made in the national interest. The poor of this country will never get to decide their own fates,” Senator Haider said.
In response to which, Senator Nasar reportedly proclaimed, “This is a system created by God, and He has made some people rich and others poor and we should not interfere in this system.”
the comment triggered a debate in which the other side persisted that economic systems are man made and wrong to which he replied
“once in China all people were considered equal, which did not work out well”.
“Those who cannot get an education and cannot earn more have no right to live the life of a bureaucrat,” he further added.
this debate says a lot about the man set to be our next president.
