Haven’t we all seen or heard of intolerant, rude and snobbish bosses who always make our life (specially Mondays) worse than hell? Haven’t we seen organizations bearing crude men just because they happen to be in ‘important’ positions? Well, what happens to those employees who have zero tolerance to those creatures every day and still don’t want to lose their job? They do what Mohammad Hanif Gul, a Grade-20 officer at Pakistan’s Railways did – apply for two years paid leave! Yes, that’s exactly what this crying official did when he couldn’t bear his boss.
In his leave application which has (obviously) gone viral, Mohammad Hanif Gul cited it “impossible” to work with the new Federal Minister for Railways, Shaikh Rashid Ahmad.
It was due to Gul’s “non-professional” and “ill-mannered” attitude which compelled Mohammad Hanif Gul to call it quits for a shocking 730 fully-paid leave!
According to the AML leader viral application, it was not possible any longer to work under Railways Minister Sheikh Rasheed Ahmed who took over as the new Railways minister on August 20, 2018.
Ahmed became the new Railways Minister after Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s historic victory in 2018 elections. He is also the founder of the political party, Awami Muslim League.
In the letter written to Railways Ministry chairman, Mohammad Hanif Gul has requested a leave of 730 days since he would not want to work under the new minister due to his intolerant behavior.
Here’s the leave application which has gone viral on social media:
Many Twitter have responded with mixed reactions on the absurdity of this leave request. Have a look at some of them here:

“I am in shock…”
I am in shock…😮
Can someone tell Mr Mohammad Hanif Gul that when you don't get along with your boss and all measures have been exhausted, you resign. Ye aap ke baap ki ministry nuhi hai ke 730 days leave full pay pe mil jaye! pic.twitter.com/rZ58Jqanvs

Resign, or deal with the might and plight of @shkhrasheed.
Don’t live for two years on my dime.

This user found it funny:
LOL. The new railways minister has forced the chief commercial manager to go on a 730-day leave (I suppose on day 731 he will retire) for his rude and non professional behaviour. Bye bye Pakistan Railways in Naya Pakistan. pic.twitter.com/mxw6QVJDhE

However, the jolt came when the former ambassador of Pakistan Husain Haqqani came to the defense of the ‘alleged’ senior official:
Ignorant rants abt #Pakistan Railways official Hanif Gul asking for 730 days leave over Minister’s bad behavior, here are civil service leave rules. He can ask for earned leave. Focus on minister known for bad manners. Dont dump on decent civil servant https://t.co/NWNW2uaUtp

This isn’t the first time Sheikh Rasheed has got involved in a dispute. In a recent incident, a traffic warden knocked over parked motorcycles to clear his path in Rawalpindi’s Bohra bazaar. The traffic warden was later suspended for this:
In this clip you will find
1. A traffic warden basically pushing motorcycles on the road to make way for a minister's mobile and govt car (they end up getting damaged)
2. A minister in an expensive govt car with security detail
3. The minister is none other than Sh Rashid pic.twitter.com/0QSrCkkpx1

As per reports, it is still not known if the application has been accepted or not.
