A horse has been sent to the Emir of Qatar Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al Thani as a gift from PM Nawaz Sharif.
Yesterday a letter surfaced which is believed to be a notification of a federal ministry. The letter said, “A special aircraft (C-130) carrying a horse will travel to Qatar on February 01, 2017,”. It also added, “The horse is a gift from the Prime Minister of Pakistan for the Emir of the State of Qatar,”
When spokesman for the Pakistan Air Force was contacted for the authenticity of the report and the letter, he has denied and said no PAF plan had been used for airlifting the horse to Qatar.
There was a sign og a deputy chief of protocol on the letter and the title of the letter was “Flight clearance for C-130 special aircraft carrying horse as a gift.”
The letter has created quite uproar in opposition party and more specifically Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf. The party members have claimed that this horse was sent as a gratitude to the Emir of Qatar for his help in Panamagate case.
However, PML-N and its party members have totally denied and called the news a hoax.
