Shaukat Yousafzai gettin trolled for his comments

Ex Minister for Health Khyber Pukhtunkhwa, Shaukat Yousafzai, recently stated that before PTI’s tenure, doctors and engineers were unemployed and used to sell pakoray. Such a disparaging comment coming from a political representative, goes without saying, ignited heated conversations and people were pissed.


During a press conference, Shaukat Yousafzai made some remarks about doctors and engineers being unemployed before PTI’s tenure

He said ” dekhein ye credit bhi toh PTI ko jata hai na ke itnay doctor bharti kiye hain, pehle toh saaray berozgaar thay, pakoray nahi baichtay thay, aap ko nahi pata? Pakoray nahi baichtay thay Khyber bazaar mein engineers, doctors”.


Obviously, the doctors and engineers of Pakistan didn’t appreciate Shaukat Yousafzai commenting on their profession like this

As offensive as it sounded, people were furious about such a belittling remark and wanted him to apologize immediately.


As Pakistanis have a knack for trolling everything they also made the most out of Shaukat Yousafzai and his remark by LITERALLY celebrating pakora day


People are fully supporting the pakora celebration and they have absolutely no chill


There’s no way people are letting go of this

Not anytime soon though.


They’re even reminding Shaukat Yousafzai of the time he became famous all around the world for another press conference

Here’s a blooper from social media managers that went really viral earlier this year, and people thought it was the perfect time to bring it back.


However, there was also an underlying motive to show support to pakora sellers and appreciate them for the hard work they put in to earn their bread

As hurtful as it is for doctors and engineers, it is equally offensive for the pakora sellers to have their profession demeaned. Hence, the celebration appeared more as a solidarity with every occupation.

The remark by Mr. Yousafzai was met with a lot of criticism from everyone and they channeled their anger into a celebration. It seems like the politicians need to be considerate and careful about what they speak and what spark can be created from their careless comments. A lot of people were of the view that politicians, in general don’t seem to respect other occupations and comparison to a pakora seller implied the profession wasn’t a respectable one.

After this crazy pakora day celebration, everyone’s wondering what’s next. What do you think about this comeback? Let us know in the comments below.
