How to avoid getting slapped

Published: March 12, 2012

Recent events have led me to believe that this world is a very dangerous place. Teachers get slapped at polling stations, bouts of amnesia suggest that politicians don’t believe the accused is the accused at all and then politician’s claim the slap never occurred, contrary to video footage!

Even after you pardon the person who slapped you, there may be naysayers who say you were never actually slapped at all!!

How are we supposed to protect ourselves from the inevitable?

In these troubled times getting slapped has become a greater threat than ever before. While PPP’s Waheeda Shah seems to be the new ambassador of the art of slapping, we fear other politicians may follow suit.

When you meet a “Waheeda Shah” what would you do in the face of a slap? Here is a quick video to show you how to avoid getting slapped and how to react if you are ever on the wrong side of a rogue politician.

While the Shahs of this world cannot always be stopped, this video can be used to teach one-self about what to do in the extremely unfortunate eventuality of meeting her.

    Great job !! The more this is played up in the media the more difficult it becomes for the Waheeda Shahs of the world to operate.
    This should be taken a step further and those who supported her, for whatever reason, mostly from her party and her ilk should also be exposed and at least shamed, if possible. Recommend

    Wahida Shah should be allowed to slap when and whom she chooses to. Sometimes one is so furious only a ultay haath ka jhamper will do. I think all of us could do with learning how to ***** slap like a boss like Ms. Shah does. Imagine a world where muggers and robbers alike fear the great Shah Slap.Recommend

    You should not avoid getting slapped by a widow. It is her fundamental right to slap people at will.Recommend

    Other day I was watching a program in which Asma Jhangir “Sahiba” shown her ALL sympathies to Wahida Shah and talked such a non-sense that I was sooo amazed how confidently she claims to be a human right activist. Recommend

    Prepare to block and check your surroundings :) Remember ladies, there was a pen on that table. Jabbing that into Waheeda Shah’s eyes would be a good attack. Recommend
