The punitive reality is, we as a nation are still aw-shucks and having cold feet against gora culture. The upper crust of Pakistan is more solecistic and culturally crude, and have no fear to express the benighted side of their personalities. #BoycottCannoli Trends as Islamabad Cafe Owners Mocked Manager’s English.
Moreover, let us show you the rotten side of the sophisticated people of Islamabad. Two of the owners of Cannoli by Cafe Soul, a high-end restaurant in the federal capital, are under fire for making fun of their manager for not speaking the English language properly.
Brief Info about the Felony
Two oafish ladies can be seen mocking an innocent manager of their café’ because they were bored to death and the easy way found is to ridicule their employee. Stomach-churning and ill-bred behaviours.

The owners of the restaurant, Uzma Chaudary and Dia Haider, purportedly recorded a 1-minute video clip as they were ‘bored’ and decided to humiliate their employee, Awais Aftab, who failed to impress the ‘English-speaking elite’. A video of two restaurant owners in Islamabad making fun of their manager’s broken English has been doing the rounds on social media.
The Disconcerting and Bizarre Dialogue Between an Employer and Employee
The video opens with a woman named Uzma and her friend Dia, who decide to introduce the audience to their restaurant Cannoli’s staff because they are “bored”.
“Awais,” calls Uzma, and the camera pans to a suit-clad man who nervously says “Hi”.
“He’s our manager,” she says. “Dia, would you like to ask him a few questions?”
“How long have you been working for us?” Dia asks.
“For the last nine years,” Awais answers.
Dia adds that Awais was one of their first hires when they opened their cafe. When asked how many classes he took for English, Awais says he took three classes and each class spanned six months.
After introducing their names, the two of them started the impertinent session to scorn him.
The owner, laughing riotously at the situation. Reacting to the answer, the first woman said, “Shabash” while the other continued, “this is our manager who is been working with us for the last nine years and this is the beautiful English he speaks.”
While one was persistently mocking the manager, the other woman ended the clip by saying ‘this is what we paid you for.’
The recent viral clip knocked for six by many of the social media users, as the elites mocked and posted the clip assuredly of the man who gave nine years of his life to their business. The ladies have no fear and reluctance to show the ugly side of their freaking minds.

The guy has been running the restaurant for 9 years with the same communication skills and making money for these pathetic ladies. The last thing we want is a fake apology with dupattas on their heads.#BoycottCannoliIslamabad#Shameful pic.twitter.com/oMStIR3f2d

This is the most disgusting thing I have seen on Twitter today belittling the staff if they can’t speak English. I don’t know when would this vicious upper class come out of this English language complex & stop judging people on their Eng language skills#boycottCannoli #cannoli pic.twitter.com/acRtsp6FEx

They said they don’t need to prove that they are “kind employers”. Yeah, well-said but we are not reluctant in calling them MUPPETS!
