PM Imran Jokingly Body-Shames Firdous Ashiq Awan
Prime Minister Imran Khan recently body-shamed his special assistant for Information and broadcasting, Firdous Ashiq Awan, in front of members of his party and other government officials.
In a video doing the rounds on social media, PM Imran can be seen travelling with a group of government officials including Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar, Special Assistant to the Prime Minister for Information and Broadcasting Firdous Ashiq and Punjab Governor Muhammad Sarwar.
In a comment towards Firdous Ashiq, the premier said, “You should sit, lest there be a casualty.”
Firdous Ashiq did not reply but merely smiled, with some officials bursting into laughter moments later.

The PM’s comments have been taken as body-shaming, and his comment and the reaction to it from other party members has come under criticism.
