Another morning, another political fiasco taking Twitter by storm. Imran Khan’s latest comment on Maryam Nawaz has sparked a raging debate on Twitter. Some are defending IK by arguing that other politicians have also resorted to making personal remarks in the past, while some believe two wrongs don’t make a right. Read on to know Twitterati’s opinion on the incident.
It is not uncommon to target women when two political parties at war can’t make sensible arguments against each other. PMLN leaders have been found doing so on multiple occasions as well. Following suit in his recent Multan Jalsa, Imran Khan made a distasteful personal comment on Maryam Nawaz and caused a frenzy on Twitter.
Here’s how Twitter is reacting to all of it.
Imran Khan Comments On Maryam Nawaz’s Marital life
Imran Khan, in his Multan jalsa, called out Maryam Nawaz and advised her to focus on her married life as she obsessed about taking IK’s name in every jalsa of PMLN. However, this might seem like a normal everyday thing to say, but it came as a shock to youth that wholeheartedly supports IK.
Rana Sanaullah Crosses The Limit By Offering To Pay For Imran Khan’s Honeymoon
On the contrary, Imran Khan has time & again faced numerous filthy comments from PMLN’s leaders. Rana Sanaullah calling him out as “budha” and then offering him a honeymoon package isn’t something to let go of either. However, people have failed to point it out, maybe because IK is a man (not a woman).
Users Tweet In Favor Of Imran Khan’s Comments
No need to be apologetic about what IK said today, PTI folks. Take them hypocrite bit**** on & smash their faux morality outta every pore of their disgusting existence! Maryam is obsessed with IK. No two ways about it!
What IK said is nothing compared to PML (N)’s derogatory remarks about his personal life. Imran Khan has feelings like the rest of us, so if you continue to attack a man’s wife, he will eventually respond. “Jeisa karogy wesa bharogy” It’s as simple as that!
What IK said about Maryam Nawaz is justified just because Jemima and Bushra Bibi were ridiculed and made fun of by the opposition in a similar manner, then isn’t Imran Khan same as the opposition in character and tongue? What makes him stand out distinctly from the opposition?
Also what IK said has nothing to do with being an Aurat/Mard. Its a juggat. Will Smith ban rahay hain sab.
I don’t support what IK said today! But why is Maryam Nawaz holier then any other women? Why didn’t you tweet when Rana SanaUllah and Fazlur Rehman talked ill of women who attend PTI’s sit-ins? You don’t get to lecture anyone on morality when your own values are compromised.
People Speaking Against Imran Khan’s Comments
You’d think Imran Khan’s supporters would at least have some shame to simply ignore what IK said about Maryam today. But no, they are not only defending but celebrating it. Imran Khan and his supporters find newer lows to stoop to every single say.
What IK said was in a bad taste. But probably we wouldn’t be here if someone had condemned the attacks on her wife and asked maryam to refrain from it. The abuse is a two way street one cant take it for all of the time and stay silent.
What Ik said about Maryam wasn’t good he shouldn’t have said that but wait who says “Pinki peerni” to Bushra Bibi? Who has nothing to do with politics, where was your morality then??
This is the lot that is the actual Nawaz cult! That has lost every sense of morality and objectivity in their hate and frustration about IK having public traction! What IK said was wrong and should not be defended in the same manner saying ghatya things to IKs wife! no ifs & buts.
Two Wrongs Don’t Make A Right
Women targeted by noon league: jemima, benazir, bushra bibi but none of them said anything now suddenly sab k andar ki aurat ki izzat jag gaya.
What IK said about maryam was unnecesary and wrong. But are the daughters and sisters of Shareef family respectable only? Not bushra bibi, sheerin mazari or murad saeed sisters? What a hypocrisy shown by these sold journalists.
I am neutral about Politics. But what IK said about Maryam Nawaz is really pathetic… Moral values and ethics should be held superior to political differences.
Pakistanis suddenly realizing women should be respected because what IK said about MNS. chalo isi bahane ppl maybe realize respecting women, give IK credit for that! p.s. personal attacks on women *and men* both should be condemned. IK has been consistently targeted by MNS.
Celebrities Speak Against The Use of Foul Language!
Have always been majorly against the use of foul language but why weren’t you outraged when his wife, PTI’s female MNAs, Murad Saeed’s sisters and more women were targeted? Repeatedly?!! Again, not saying it’s right but selective much?
Iffat Omar shows aggression on Imran’s comments for Maryam Nawaz.
This is low, even by his own level!
We believe that social, political, and professional disputes shouldn’t be based on one’s personal life. Regardless of gender or age, nobody has the right to throw dirt on someone else. If IK was offended by the bullying & personal attacks on him, he should’ve taken action differently rather than publicly humiliating a woman. Also, the supporters and facilitators of both parties should criticize opposing parties by using better words and refrain from derogatory remarks.
With that being said, justifying Imran Khan’s comment by quoting politicians from Noon League is just adding fuel to the fire. The supporters of Imran Khan expected better from him, hence, the disappointment. So, we reiterate that two wrongs don’t make a right.
