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.”

I have never liked Salman Ahmad and I never will. He is a horrible singer and a horrible person as well. https://t.co/tRohWJleRy

“It takes a lifetime to build reputation and just few seconds to lose it”. You just did that Salman Ahmad. Shame on you. https://t.co/GeOkbDnQ8k

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.
