Popular Pakistani TV host and social media influencer Waqar Zaka’s hilarious commentary on sprinter Najma Parveen went viral on the Internet. This took place when Pakistan’s athlete was taking part in women’s 200m round 1 heats at the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games. Najma finished at the last spot in the qualification round with a dismal timing of 28:12.

Zaka has been doing funny commentaries on his social media accounts for the Pakistani athletes while they’re in action at the ongoing Games. He began his video while requesting everyone to cheer for Najma, however, he hurled a few sexist remarks at the fellow athletes participating in the event.

“Ye ladkiyan hain ki nahi hain (Are they even girls or not?),” remarked Zaka when the camera panned into athletes like Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce (Jamaica), Rafaéla Spanoudaki-Hatziriga (Greece) and Lisa-Marie Kwayie (Germany). 

He later asked, “Hamaari behen ka muqabla ho kinse raha hai (Who is our sister competing with?),” “Ye kya item hai bhai? (What is this ‘item’?),” reckoned Zaka commenting on the looks and physique of Najma’s competitors.

Waqar Zaka commenced cheering for Najma Parveen once the race started only till the point he could spot her on the TV screen.

“Chalo bhaago Najma (Run Najma). C’mon Najma,” cheered Zaka before she was trailing at the last spot.

Bhaag Najma bhaag. Sabse peeche ho gayi kya? Najma kahan hai? (Run Najma run. Is she the last? Where is Najma?),” Zaka was left bewildered. 

Zaka’s search for Najma’s appearance on TV didn’t end here as he continued: “Najma kahan hai? Najma meri behen. Cooking kar rahi thi? Kinko bheja hua hai? Najma kahan hai bhai? (Where is Najma? Najma my sister. Was she cooking? Who have we sent? Where is Najma?)”

The 35-year-old further leaving the netizens in splits with his commentary. Zaka continued tickling the funny bones of people as he kept asking, “Pakistan ki sab se tez bhaagne wali khatoon hai lekin yahan nahi bhaag saki. Kahan hai Najma? (She is the fastest running woman in Pakistan. Where is Najma?)”
