PM Imran Criticised For Inviting Alleged Sexual Harasser Ukhano At Bani Gala
Prime Minister Imran Khan held a meeting with digital influencers including vloggers and YouTubers on Sunday. The meeting has generated a controversy as people on social media have criticised the presence of an alleged sexual harasser, Ukhano, at the meeting.
A statement released by PM Imran Khan official Facebook account read, “Prime Minister Imran Khan meets a group of digital media representatives & experts.”
Twitterati have criticised Prime Minister Imran Khan for inviting Youtuber Umar Khan aka Ukhano at the meeting. They asked as to why the prime minister was meeting such controversial personalities. Ukhano was accused of sexual misconduct on social media by a number of women in July last year. Another YouTuber Juniad Akram who also attended the meeting was accused by multiple women of sexual harassment.
"Khan shouldn't have invited Ukhano because he was accused of harassment"
dude is doing business with a country that's selling, raping and murdering people. What do YOU think he gives a shit about? :p

What could be the rationale behind attending an event where someone like Ukhano is invited? If anything, I believe protesting against PM Imran Khan's event for content creators would've attracted more eyeballs toward sexual misconduct in the YouTube industry pic.twitter.com/wSHSSLdRJL

Who else here knows about Umar khan aka #Ukhano, standing next to our PM @ImranKhanPTI? Umar has a history of online harassment where many girls came forward & provided proofs of his filthy actions on internet under #MeToo

Imagine studying at Oxford, winning a cricket world cup, meeting Diana, building hospitals, forming a party, campaigning politically for 20 years and then becoming Prime Minister of Pakistan only to stand next to Ukhano 🙃🙃🙃🙃🙃🙃🙃🙃🙃🙃🙃🙃🙃🙃🙃🙃🙃🙃🙃🙃🙃🙃🙃🙃🙃🙃🙃🙃

Twitterati also called out some other YouTubers who were invited by the aides of PM Imran Khan.
So #Pakistan’s PM @ImranKhanPTI invited some of the the country’s leading social media influencers at his office, some of them notably @u_khano, @junaidakram83, @rahimpardesii & @iHalalFeminist are quite problematic ones. Ukhano & Junaid Akram have been accused of harassing women https://t.co/Tep8FaYdGO

What kind of influence will ukhano and kind of, bring? These good for nothing kind of vloggers always stood away from any political activity, stayed quite at the moments of several moral crises. Idk why everything around IK is so messed up.

The responsibility for inviting dirt bags like Ukhano and Junaid lies on @arslankhalid_m and @sayedzbukhari. You think IK even knows what the f a ukhano is and that he's sending unsolicited nudes on insta. Is there something in the water at LUMSU that makes people act this way? https://t.co/90XU8R0i2u
