An attack at the Chinese consulate in Karachi was foiled today by the Sindh Police and the Rangers.

The media quickly noticed that another individual was quick to arrive on the scene... PTI MNA Faisal Vawda.

Before we get talking about the MNA let's congratulate acting SP Suhai Aziz who headed the operation and has been lauded for her efforts to thwart the deadly attack in a timely fashion, with the IG Sindh recommending the SP for a Quaid-E-Azam police medal.

Okay now back to Faisal Vawda.

Shortly after the attack was thwarted, Federal Minister for Water Resources Faisal Vawda showed up to the site in a bulletproof vest and armed with a gun.

Unfortunately, the Minister's attempt came under heavy criticism on social media.

Twitter also did not shy away from seizing the opportunity to have a little fun with Vawda's... very proactive stance.

Via an unverified account on Twitter, Faisal Vawda responded to the criticism, claiming he was there "from start to finish" and that "As a Pakistani I didn’t shy away, it’s my right to use my licensed weapon for self defence. At least I’m not a coward like many hiding behind keyboards..."

He added, " As Federal Minister it is my domain to assist Federal agencies."
