Punjab Education Minister Is Too Shy To Say The Word ‘Pregnant’

Punjab Education Minister Murad Raas left Twitterati amused with his refusal to use the word ‘pregnant’ in a tweet announcing that female teachers in the province who are expecting a child will have a choice not to get vaccinated.

All Public and Private Female teachers of Punjab that are on the family way may not get Vaccinated as per choice,” he wrote on Twitter.

Social media users questioned as to why the minister did not say ‘pregnant women’ and instead used the term ‘on the family way’ to refer to pregnant women.

Some Twitter users found it unfortunate that even the word ‘pregnant’ was considered a taboo.

 

 

Others said it took them a while to understand what the minister actually meant by ‘teachers that are on the family way’.
