Yesterday Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf completed its 100 days of being in power. Prime Minister Imran Khan is scheduled to be addressing the nation later today on the progress of his new government.
The 100 days of Imran Khan’s government have been nothing short of a roller coaster
First they were accused of taking so many U-Turns but then Prime Minister Khan gave a speech where he owned the U-Turn taking, claiming it as a sign of leadership.
Their ad to celebrate their 100 days is causing a bit of controversy
Because there were so many U-Turns throughout these 100 days, be it about Atif Mian’s appointment to the Economic Council or in the aftermath of Aasia Bibi’s case, PTI decided to post an advertisement in today’s newspaper that says ‘Hum Masroof Thay‘, or ‘We’ve been busy’ for the English language papers.
Some people thought that was literally the ad and got a bit offended.

But then someone pointed out that the page needs to be turned over for their full message

The other side of the newspaper says, “humari kaarkardagi ke liye gawahi hazaaron alfaaz ki,” further explaining what this means. The ad states, “Pakistan mein hukumat ne na sirf pehle 100 dino ke tay kardah ehdaaf hasil kiye hain balke naye Pakistan ke roshan mustaqbil k liye awaami-o-quami taraqqi ke kaye ezaafi iqdamaat bhi uthaye hain“.
All of this basically is a way for the Government of Pakistan to say that they’v been working tirelessly to fulfill their promises to the people

On the U-turns, this one explained everything
– We did not recover #TahirDawar before he could be killed
– We kept Transferring police officers in defense of Swati vs Bajaur family
– We could not do anything for Ex-FATA in 100 days
– We kept taking #UTurns #PTIGovernment #Pakistan
