‘Sexist & indecent’: Twitter fires back at Pakistani PM as he calls MALE opponent ‘madam’

Imran Khan unloaded on Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, chairman of the opposition Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), while speaking to a crowd of supporters on Wednesday.

I came to power through struggle and hard work unlike Bilawal Sahiba [madam] who, using the will of her mother, became the head of political party.

Khan, a former cricket player, apparently tried to add insult to injury as he accentuated Bhutto’s privileged background. The PPP chairman was born to a family of former President Asif Ali Zardari and murdered ex-Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto.

Before joining Pakistani politics, Bhutto preferred to keep a low profile, focusing on finishing his history degree at Oxford University. This year, the 29-year-old politician is running for parliament for the first time.

Footage of Khan attacking Bhutto spread quickly on social media, stirring up quite a backlash.

Some slammed the “poor and misogynist” remark while others even went as far as to call it “fascist.”

As the day progressed, Khawaja Asif, a former defense minister, also joined the online brawl, claiming the jibe represented Khan’s “real language.”

Bhutto himself responded to the insult later in the day, writing, “What was that about small men in big offices?”

However, some netizens gave Khan the benefit of the doubt, arguing it was simply a slip of the tongue.
