Quote-tweeting Imaan’s assertion, Shireen stated:” I’m ashamed you’d resort to such low, personalised, unsubstantiated assaults — particularly since as a lawyer you need to know [that] with none proof hurling such accusations is defamation.”
I’m ashamed you’d resort to such low personalised unsubstantiated assaults esp since as a lawyer u shd know with none proof hurling such accusations is defamation. When all substantive issue-based criticism fails this stage of a base private assault is obvious shameful. https://t.co/drbLN5bq9w

“When all substantive issue-based criticism fails, this stage of non-public assault is obvious shameful,” she added.
Earlier within the day, Imaan had tweeted that if the nation was to be run by witchcraft, why was an enormous quantity of taxpayer cash being wasted on the prime minister’s outsized cupboard?
She was repeating an allegation that has just lately been pushed regularly by the federal government’s critics: the unsubstantiated declare that Prime Minister Imran Khan depends on witchcraft and divination to make key choices relating to the affairs of the state.
Specifically, the jibe appears directed on the prime minister’s partner, who was a pir (non secular individual) earlier than her marriage to Imran Khan.
Pirs in native tradition are believed to train supernatural powers and be capable of divine the longer term with their ‘non secular perception’.
اگر ملک کو جادو ٹونے سے ہی چلانا تھا تو پھر اس قوم کا پیسہ اتنی بڑی کابینہ پر کیوں ضائع ھو رہا ہے۔
ملک کا مذاق جادو ٹونے سے اڑایا جا رہا ہے اور آپ چاہتے ہیں کے جادو کرنے والوں پر بات بھی نا ہو۔۔۔ ایسا تو ہر گز نہیں ھو گا

“The nation has been made a mockery of with [the use of] witchcraft — how can it’s that we don’t speak about those that observe it,” Imaan had stated in her tweet.
Hers isn’t the one assertion to have attracted the anger of these supportive of the federal government prior to now day or so.
Journalist and tv present host Asma Shirazi has been on the centre of a raging controversy which has seen her being focused with advert hominem assaults and accusations of partiality in the direction of the PML-N after she wrote a column for BBC Urdu that featured comparable insinuations.
