What’s Jemima got to do with it?


KARACHI: The political atmosphere in Pakistan has been hostile, to say the least. And it seems there are no holds barred when it comes to attacking anyone associated with a political leader. That includes ex wives. After Imran Khan was ousted as Prime Minister, many devoted PTI followers took to the streets to protest his removal. PTI supporters in London took to protesting outside former PMLN leader Nawaz Sharif’s residence. In retaliation, PMLN – UK announced a protest outside Jemima Goldsmith’s house. When the news spread on social media, Twitter users were quick to express their displeasure about Jemima being targeted because of Imran Khan.

One Twitter user pointed how comparing protesting outside the Sharif residence and protesting outside the Goldsmith residence was like comparing apples and oranges.

Another Twitter user pointed out that holding a protest outside Jemima’s house made no sense considering how removed she is from PTI and Imran Khan.

Some questioned why go after Jemima when Imran Khan has other, more politically inclined exes.

Others pointed how this call to protest only cast PMLN in a negative light.

Twitter users also pointed out targeting women seemed to be a pattern for the political party in question.

Needless to say, Pakistanis are not happy about Jemima Goldsmith being targeted to get to Imran Khan!
