It’s not unusual for people to invite political leaders to inaugurate an event. However, when a Pakistani minister recently went at the opening ceremony of a shop, he set social media abuzz of his unusual style: cutting the ribbon with his teeth! Now, a video of the incident has taken the internet by storm, with many users poking fun at him.
Fayyaz-ul-Hassan Chohan, Minister for Prisons and spokesperson for the Government of Punjab, was invited to cut the ribbon for an electronics shop in his Rawalpindi constituency on Thursday. However, as he tried to cut the tape, it didn’t go as planned. After attempting to do it a few times, the minister looked around embarrassed, leaving onlookers chuckling.
Then, he humorously resorted to cutting the tape with his teeth, and everyone broke out in laughter.

The minister shared the video himself and explained why he choose to cut the ribbon this way. Saying the “scissors were blunt and bad”, he said the “owner set a new world record to save the shop from embarrassment”.
