After Dr. Firdous, Twitterati Now Wants Sacking Of Shireen Mazari

Dr. Firdous Ashiq Awan was recently sacked from the post of special assistant on information and broadcasting to the Prime Minister Imran Khan. Lt Gen (Rtd) Asim Saleem Bajwa replaced her on an immediate basis. However, no specific reason was mentioned for her removal.

Now, Pakistani citizens want the removal of Shireen Mazari with #sackshireenmazari going viral on Twitter. According to sources, Pakistani citizens have already been happy with Mazari’s performance. Moreover, her recent remarks on Tariq Jameel’s controversial speech has further angered Pakistani citizens.

Last week on Thursday, Maulana Tariq Jameel was invited to the Ehsaas Telethon. He was asked to initiate a collective prayer for the general public. Maulana Tariq Jameel was also asked to guide people on how to take precautionary measures amid the coronavirus pandemic. However, in the latter part of his speech, Maulana Tariq Jameel spoke about his dissatisfaction regarding morality in Pakistan. He displayed his dismay over the clothing choices of women and their desire to dance.

Ever since the transmission concluded, #tariqjamil and #molanaTariqJameel have been trending on social media. His prayers and speech have attracted two-pronged reactions from social media users.

Shireen Mazari speaks up on women rights

Human Rights Minister Shireen Mazari also took a dig at Maulana Tariq Jameel for his remarks. Through a personal twitter account, Mazari stated that the misogynistic and ignorant comments blaming women and youth for the ongoing coronavirus crisis were absolutely unacceptable.

Mazari tweeted: “Simply absurd 4 anyone under any guise to even suggest the COVID19 pandemic is a result of women wearing short sleeves or because of private schools/universities misleading the youth. This simply reflects either ignorance about pandemics or a misogynist mindset. Absolutely unacceptable”.

She further added: “We will not accept the targeting of women on the pretext of such ludicrous accusations. We in Pakistan have fought hard for claiming our rights as enshrined in the Constitution of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan”.

Soon after, Maulana Tariq Jameel apologized publicly on Twitter for his speech. Mazari also acknowledged his clarification. However, as per Mazari, she never criticized Mowlana Tariq Jameel for his comments.

Mazari later tweeted about the capture of the man who had killed his seven-year-old niece in Peshawar.

Twitterati unhappy with Mazari’s performance

Regarding the killing of the 7-year-old girl and comments on Maulana Tariq Jameel, Twitter criticized Mazari for her incompetency. Pakistani citizens are unhappy that Mazari has not done anything in her role as human rights minister yet she is criticizing Mowlana Tariq Jameel. As a result, #sackshireenmazari has been trending on twitter.
