Minister Asad Umar Mocks Bilawal Bhutto’s Leg Injury
Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader and former finance minister Asad Umar has mocked Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairperson Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari over his leg injury, saying maybe Bilawal tried to kick the PTI government out of power and got his leg injured instead.
Asad Umar, who was speaking on a HUM TV show, said that Bilawal once said he could end the federal government with a kick, but you can see that the government is intact but Bilawal is being seen with a plaster on his leg these days. Maybe he did try to kick the government out?
Twitter didn’t think the comments made by the incumbent planning ministry were funny, as they called him out for his ‘raw sense of humour’.
Such raw sense of humor, if you don’t have it why try

Some say Asad Umar was getting cringe-worthy with every day.
To make fun of someone’s health is stupid and cringe when you try to make a joke out of it.

Gill mocks Ajrak mask:
On July 22 this year, Prime Minister’s aide on Parliamentary Affairs Shehbaz Gill mocked Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairperson Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari for wearing a cloth mask that was adorned with Ajrak pattern — a traditional block-printed Sindhi style.
Speaking on a TV show, Gill had said he had heard about the use of ‘province card’, but this was the first time that he saw a ‘province mask’ being played by the opposition.
He also drew an analogy between masks worn by people, including himself, and the cloths used to restrain calves from drinking milk. He, however, went a step further and said the mask worn by Bilawal, with the Ajrak print, is more close to the one used on calves, as both have ‘colourful’ print.
Apparently, the PM’s aide had failed to see a difference between any ‘old piece of colourful cloth’ and the Ajrak, a prominent symbol of Sindhi culture. His justification for the comparison was that both were ‘colourful’.
