Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Wednesday said Pakistani liberals were ‘more dangerous than anyone else’ as they are always ‘thirsty for blood. The PTI chief’s remarks were strongly condemned by social media users who reminded him that religious fanatics and not liberals are a threat to the country’s stability. Twitter user Dr Nauman said,? “So according to Imran Khan Khadim Hussain Rizvi is not a threat to Pakistan but liberals are the biggest threat to this nation. I do not know to laugh or cry.” Another user Faraz tweeted,? “Imran angry at liberals for criticizing Khadim Rizvi. He spent 15 years bashing liberals for demanding action against taliban” Twitter user Imran Khan? tweeted, “Hello khooni liberals, if you want to be positive, drink B +ive.” Satirist account Ranting Pakistani tweeted,? “Imran Khan is right. Pakistani liberals are thirsty for blood. They are dying. All three of them.” Twitter user Kala Kawa? said, “So when the liberals do their dharna will they also find a surprise cache of tear gas and grenade launchers? Because they’d really put them to good use being such “khoonis” as per Hazrat Imran Khan Sahib.” Another user Anthony Permal responded to Khan’s remarks and said, “Correct. APS kids were massacred by atheist, Darwin-reading, pen toting Buzzfeed subscribers.” Activist Sehar Tariq? tweeted, “Pakistani Liberals: apparently thirsty for blood. Pakistani Conservatives: actually spilling blood and have already spilt the blood of thousands. You decide who’s more dangerous.” Twitter user Natasha? said, “Where the man who pleaded for leniency for Taliban says liberals want blood.” Journalist Muaaz Ahsan tweeted,? “I wish for once Imran Khan finds courage to lecture this “respect for human life” to the monsters who are actually killing ppl. Its easy cursing ppl who are just expressing their opinions and not carrying weapons, blocking roads and burning down public property.” Columnist Ayesha Ijaz Khan said,”?History will not forgive Imran Khan for the vile misinformation he knowingly propagates in order to deliberately confuse a semi-literate population. Instead of educating them, he misinforms them all in his quest for that illusive power. Shameful and disgusting.” Twitter user Daaniyal? said, “Religious extremists calling for extermination of other fellow law abiding Paistanis have just engaged the state in battle and bested it. Creating long term problems that may undo us. But yes, let me give a beatdown to liberals who are the real problem.” Published in Daily Times, November 30th 2017.
