Almost as soon as pictures of PM Nawaz Sharif in the ICU were made public, people started noticing something different. While many had been critical, even unnecessarily abusive at times, of his scheduled surgery, no one expected it to turn into a ‘HairGate’.
Here’s how Pakistanis have been reacting:
Being the controversy loving nation that we are, people started speculating about the Prime Minister’s seemingly ‘fuller’ hair.

Well the man was sleeping (sort of) during surgery. We can give him the benefit of laying.
This guy even questioned London’s existence as the hub of fake surgeries

And conspiracy theorists were having a field day
Ball by ball commentary by Maryam Nawaz on father's operation shows it was a hair transplant, not a heart surgery.#DramaOfFakeSurgery

Maryam Sharif was even called out for being the ‘show runner’ of this HairGate
Yeah, we’re calling it HairGate.

Interesting how he saw Maryam Sharif’s “solid face” via her tweets.
And then Shahbaz Sharif was dragged into this hairy mess

Yes, because a man changing his tie in a 4 hour window totally means he’s lying about heart bypass surgery.
This guy went into the details of surgery to prove it was fake.
#DramaOfFakeSurgery In case of open-heart surgery, patient can't travel by plane for six months. How can our PM be back in PK in 15 days?"

Too many shits given bro.
But the most interesting feedback was suggestions for Prime Minister Sharif to have an alternative career choice once he retires
That is if he retires. And that is a very big IF.
