Singer Salman Ahmad Under Fire For Misogynistic Post Against Bilawal Bhutto

Junoon band guitarist Salman Sufi has received backlash after he posted a morphed photo of Chairman Pakistan People's in a Twitter post.

The photo, posted on Tuesday, showed the PPP chief drenched in makeup with long nails and earrings and was captioned with insulting remarks.

The post invited heavy backlash from the social media users, renowned personalities, celebrities and the masses in general. However, instead of apologising for the unbecoming conduct, the singer took to Twitter the next day with the same photo, captioned, "why become a politician if you can't tolerate satire."

The singer has been receiving condemnation on the social media platform, with many reminding him that he was once liked by many. The following are some of the reactions from the Twitterati.

On July 1, Prime Minister Imran Khan faced criticism for insultingly mimicking Bilawal on the floor of the House. The premier, while addressing the lawmakers in National Assembly, mocked Bilawal’s statement on rains and flooding, mimicking the PPP chairman (also making fun of his Urdu) to say “when it rains, water pours down. When it rains more, more water pours down.” In November last year, PM Imran did the same at the inaugural ceremony of Havelian-Mansehra section of the Hazara motorway.
