DG Rawalpindi Saif Anwar Jappa criticised for Dance Video f

“Come on, we all want to dance a little sometimes.”

Saif Anwar Jappa, the Director General of the Rawalpindi Development Authority, has found himself at the centre of a social media controversy.

A video is circulating, showing Jappa energetically dancing in his bedroom.

It has ignited a discussion on the balance between the personal expressions of public officials and their professional duties.

The video went viral shortly after Jappa’s recent appointment as the Rawalpindi commissioner.

The clip features Jappa in a light-hearted moment, carefree and in his element.

He danced to the beats of a song cherished by many in Pakistan. It was ‘Jhanjhar Di Pawan Chankar’ by the late Noor Jahan.

The response to the video has been divided. Some liked it for revealing a more human side of a senior official.

One person said: “Come on, we all want to dance a little sometimes.”

Another wrote: “He cannot dance just because he is a senior official?”

One user commented: “He is a better dancer than our film heroes.”

Another stated: “Nothing is wrong here, every human has the right to enjoy their life.”

A user said: “This is cute and wholesome.”

However, it has also faced significant criticism.

People argued that during a period of important public challenges, such leisurely displays are inappropriate.

Others mentioned Saif Anwar Jappa’s age and how the dance did not suit his personality or his rank.

One viewer criticised: “He should be preparing for the next life, not dancing like a stage dancer.”

Another wrote: “Making a fool of himself. No one would respect him after this.”

One said: “This behaviour reflects a lack of professionalism and seriousness.”

The video has triggered a wider conversation about the conduct and expectations of public officials.

Some question whether personal expressions like these undermine the seriousness with which they should approach their responsibilities.

One user noted:

“Public officials are expected to uphold a sense of decorum and dignity 24/7.”

His enthusiastic performance, complete with exaggerated gestures and gyrations, has garnered appreciation.

One person wrote: “Nice moves. Gotta appreciate it.”

Another joked: “I wouldn’t mind seeing more of this.”

One asked: “What does his personal life or hobbies have to do with his professional life?”

While some viewers found Saif Anwar Jappa’s dance entertaining and enjoyable, others expressed concern and disapproval.
