Using the word selected for Imran Khan has been banned and people are making jokes.
Ever Since Prime Minister Imran Khan took office he and his party have been facing a lot of criticism. Indeed this criticism is not unique to his party only but there’s a spotlight on this government because they have presented themselves as the only alternative and “hope” for the people of Pakistan from the usual, corrupt politicians.
A few days ago, the Deputy Speaker Qasim Khan Suri banned the use of the word “selected” for Prime Minister Imran Khan
It was reported that on June 23, 2019 the Deputy Speaker made his pronouncement during a session of the National Assembly.
Ever since, critics of the Government have been trolling the banning

However, some people also went a little too far with their criticism and took their trolling a little too far
Interestingly, all of them are ‘patwaris‘.

They even started sharing fake screenshots of a Google search about using the words ‘selected party in Pakistan’ which, as we have verified, does not give the answer PTI
