Sexist remarks of Imran Khan about Maryam Nawaz has set the social media on fire. Thousands of tweets pouring both in favour of Imran and Maryam.
Imran Khan in rally in Multan on Friday cautioned Maryam not to call his name with so much passion that her poor husband Capt Safdar might mind it.
This sexist remarks also brought Bushra Bibi, Khan’s wife, into the ring if mudsling.
The whole leadership of PMLN started taking in Imran for making a sexist remark on their chief party leader.
Interesting tweets were also made. Like Khanza said: “I as a women strongly Agree with Imran Khan, as he didn’t say anything wrong, Just Cautioned Marym not to Say his name. As an Asian society his husband might mind this and her family may be harmed.. #امپورٹڈ_حکومت__نامنظور #ملتان_جلسہ #MaryamNawazSharif
Similarly, another user said: “When you don’t stop running your filthy mouth constantly attacking Imran khan, it gets you in trouble. Tell this to your Beti #MaryamNawazSharif Next time she’ll think thousands time before spewing sh**. #ImranOPhobia
Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif said: “بیٹی مریم نواز شریف کے خلاف قابل افسوس زبان درازی پر پوری قوم خاص طور پر خواتین پرزور مذمت کریں۔ کم ظرفی کے اظہار سے ملک وقوم کے خلاف آپ کے جرائم چھپ نہیں سکتے۔ مسجد نبوی کی حرمت و ناموس کا پاس نہ کرنے والوں سے ماؤں، بہنوں، بیٹیوں کی عزت وتکریم کی کیا توقع ہوسکتی ہے۔
Madiha said: “The words have been used for Maryam Nawaz by Imran Khan, are true reflection of struggle, anxiety and dirt, working women face in this society.

My sis, mother & yours getting abused on social media.
Not just an individual.
Bushra Bibi has been targeted in a really worse way by anti imran khan groups but in my personal opinion khan sahab shouldn't have said that about maryam nawaz. I know she's obsessed with him but khan sahab shouldn't answer such people and give them value.— Sir Saith Abdullah (@SaithAbdullah99) May 20, 2022
Maryam openly attacked Bushra Bibi in her recent speech. How many lifafa journalists condemned this language?— J. Sleepy Latte (@naanchannay) May 20, 2022

#ImranKhan is on the receiving end of public backlash after making sexist remarks against #MaryamNawazSharif. Speaking at a jalsa in Multan, the former PM said that Maryam uses my name with the kind of 'josh' and 'jazba' which might make her husband insecure. pic.twitter.com/JbH2LAeZcj— RASALA.PK (@rasalapk) May 20, 2022

So people are venting their anger as well as well as taking each other’s leadership. PMLN does not want to go Imran off the hook on this sexist matter. PAK DESTINY
