Prime Minister Imran Khan’s decision to appoint singer Ali Zafar, who is an accused in a sexual harassment case, as the ambassador of the Namal Knowledge City has generated criticism on social media.

A user questioned the direction in which the country was headed.

 

Another user tweeted that the state machinery and the powerful people who supported Ali Zafar should know that they have silenced countless victims.

Activist Aimen Bucha wrote, “The Pakistani State really does hate women. It is not an Imran Khan problem. It is a patriarchal state problem. We saw this in the democratic and dictatorial governments which came before him as well”

Journalist Benazir Shah tweeted that it was a clear message to women in Pakistan.

Another Twitterati noted that the state appears to be supporting Ali Zafar since the time he was accused of harassment and asked if Zafar is going to become the president one day.
