PM Imran Says Nurses Looked Like ‘Hoors’ After He Had Painkiller
Prime Minister Imran Khan, while addressing a conference, has said that when he fell from the stage in 2013, the nurses at the Shaukhat Khanum Hospital, who took care of him, looked like hoors because he was under the influence of a painkiller.
The prime minister said the injection by the Shaukat Khanum Hospital nurse not only removed the pain but enabled him to make a speech as well. He said, “I was in deep pain due to injuries after I fell from the stage while campaigning during the 2013 election but the nurses who made my pain go away looked like hoors at that time.”
PM Imran said he repeatedly asked the doctor to give him more of that pain killer injection but he refused. At one point the prime minister recalled threatening the doctor to do his bidding but even then, he did not allow another injection.
The PM is being criticised for his remarks about the nurses by social media users who say the PM shouldn’t have sexualised them.
Which injection makes nurses look like “Hoors” to #PMIK ?
Is PM sending a message that Nurses are objects of sexual desire? The noble profession of “Sisters” who follow the tradition of #FlorenceNightingale to treat sick & wounded rebranded as “Hoors” by #Pakistan ‘s PM? pic.twitter.com/w58zNYdj2S

It is offensive and unbecoming of a prime minister of a country to refer to nurses who were treating him as objects of heavenly desire. His statement is highly controversial and mocks the dignified profession of nursing generally. https://t.co/GO7EyHmEaO
