PTI government smells rat in Sohail Warraich's book's derogatory cartoon  of PM Khan -- matter is being investigated

By Raza Ruman

The controversial cartoon in which Prime Minister Imran Khan is shown sitting in the feet of Army Chief Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa in the cover page of Jang/Geo journalist Sohail Warraich’ book has raised many eyebrows in all quarters and also questions as why the trusted fellow of Mir Shakilur Rehman felt the need to target Khan and Gen Bajwa.

PM’s special assistant Shahbaz Gill on Wednesday aptly questioned ‘has Mr Warriach been forced to have this caricature in which PM Khan is humiliated on the cover page of his book.”

Gill also questioned that if Warraich didn’t do it under compulsion then it’s his terrible mindset which couldn’t be understood before.

There has been a lot of bashing on social media against Warraich for the cartoon he had on the cover page of his book which he did so to get worldwide publicity of his book. One will be astonished to know that this isn’t a book but compilation of his published columns.

Some twitter user said Warraich did so only to have cheap publicity to his so called book titled — Yeh Company Nahi Chaley Gi (this company won’t work).

It is learnt that the entire print order of the new Warraich volume had been “confiscated” and he had been forced to delete his promotional tweet.

Speaking to the BBC, Mr Warraich said: “I also learnt that a caricature of Prime Minister Imran Khan, sitting on the floor close to Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa’s chair, is termed derogatory. Normally, caricatures are drawn, and taken, in a lighter vein and this was precisely the spirit behind this one as well. However, if it is taken as offensive, it can be changed.”

Let’s see how Jang/Geo group goes further in its war against the establishment. PAK DESTINY
