JUI-F leader receives traffic challan from Swiss police in Peshawar


Jamiat-e-Ulema Fazl (JUI-F) leader Arbab Farooq has received a traffic challan from the Swiss government, a private media outlet reported Monday.

According to reports, Farooq had paid a visit to Switzerland some five to six months ago where he had unintentionally violated a traffic rule.

“I have received a letter from Swiss authorities stating that I committed a traffic violation somewhere on the road,” he said in a video message, adding that he was fined for 105 Euros.

“I believe this is quite a commendable act that portrays how they follow traffic rules so rigorously.”

He added that Pakistanis should also abide by traffic rules and develop a praiseworthy system like Switzerland.

“I will pay the fine. I call upon fellow citizens to follow the traffic rules of the country and show the world that we were law-abiding citizens.”

It would improve the image of the country, Farooq added.
