The Bilawal Zardari iftari was more dramatic than the story of the House of Stark tbh
Bilawal Zardari claimed the role of gracious host this past weekend and held an iftari.
Oh and not just any run of the mill iftari, at that. Bilawal invited leaders of all major opposition parties in the country and welcomed them into Zardari House in Islamabad to discuss ways of opposing Imran Khan’s current government.
Among the guests were Maryam Nawaz Sharif, the daughter of Nawaz Sharif as well as her cousin, Hamza Shahbaz and the leaders of multiple other opposing political parties.

It was a bit of dramatic gathering as Maryam and Bilawal, both the children of prominent politicians and new leaders of political parties in Pakistan came together in front of the media.
It wasn’t the first time they met but lmao, this rain entrance of Maryam and Hamza’s was pretty much the most dramatic way the evening could have kicked off.
There is something very dramatic, almost filmi, about a storm in Islamabad as Maryam Nawaz Sharif and Bilawal Bhutto Zardari meet officially pic.twitter.com/w4p8oC5wmB

Oh and this rain clip wasn’t the only moment of the night that had people talking. In fact, the entire Iftari was pretty much a breeding ground for trolls to take over.
The children of three of the most powerful families in Pakistan came together last night and all Pakistanis did was make memes.

Yep. The Internet took control last night and poked fun at multiple instances of the Iftari, and it was just too entertaining to watch.
There were some sexist jokes as well

^ New Snapchat filter?
Bilawal, Maryam and Hamza have been being called out for only coming together in this iftari to figure out a way to protect and steer their families wealth
Obviously, given that they are the heirs of three of the most influential political families in the country, people have been criticizing them for their capability to either help the cause to a newer stronger Pakistan or take their own money and run.
But also, lol.

Must have been a hell of a convo with these three on the couch.

Bilawal: Make sure the discussion we do must remain secret.
Marium: Establishment must not know what we are discussing.

It was definitely interesting to see the kin of such impactful leaders in Pakistan get together under one roof to discuss the future of our nation. Of course, one can really never know the true intentions of a Pakistani politician and because of that, we can’t say for certain what will actually come out of this event.
All we can say is that seeing all those people in one room may have been a great opportunity to crack a joke or two but once all the dust settles, it’s interesting to think of all the things that can be done at the hands of these three. We’ll just have to sit and watch it all unfold and perhaps see a new kind of image arise from these individuals and their last names.
Have you seen the news of the iftari? What did you think of it? Let us know in the comments below.
