Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Education Department's New Logo Is Causing People To Make Some Queer Connections

By Sajeer Shaikh | 1 Jul, 2017

Pakistanis love a good debate. Just log on to Twitter and you’ll find yourself immersed deep within threads upon threads filled with arguments intellectual discussions. That’s probably why it isn’t too surprising that Pakistani Twitter hopped aboard the speculation surrounding the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Education Department’s new logo for its Elementary and Secondary Education systems.

 

For those of you who don’t know what it looks like, the new KP logo is a blend of four colors, bearing a close resemblance to what a rainbow-colored logo would look like.

Here’s the new KP logo, in all its four-colored glory:

Seems pretty innocent, right? Well, not a lot of Pakistanis agree to that. In an unsurprising turn of events, people started likening the four-colored logo to the seven-colored LGBTQ flag.

Questions were raised about the logo

The KP Education Department was asked to Google what the LGBTQ flag looked like

Additionally, even PTI supporters couldn’t muster up support for the logo

Moreover, Pakistani journalist, Ansar Abbasi, also considered the prospect to be ‘dangerous’

Everyone had the same question in mind: are we leaning towards supporting the LGBTQ community?

The backlash made the KP Education Department tweet out several clarifications about their logo

They believed that the backlash against the new KP logo was baseless propaganda

As news caught on, others stepped in to defend the logo as well

Some people actually asked some pretty valid questions

And some called the entire situation a non-issue

Whereas some believed that changing the logo would solve the entire issue altogether

While it’s pretty evident that the new KP logo is three colors short of resembling the actual LGBTQ flag, many seem to legitimately believe that it symbolizes an underlying support for the LGBTQ community. Clarifications being offered by the KP Education Department aren’t being fully accepted either. What do you think about the new logo? Share your thoughts with us in the comments below.
