Zartaj Gul just went after Maryam Nawaz
After the news broke out yesterday that Maryam Nawaz had been arrested by NAB from Kot Lakhpat jail while she was on her way to visit her imprisoned father Nawaz Sharif, the opinion on social media about the arrest was divided. While some people were happy that she had been arrested, others had reservations about the timings.
The Minister of State for Climate Change Zartaj Gul was incredibly happy about the arrest of Maryam Nawaz and had some choice remarks about the PML N leader
واہیات بیانات دینے والی، بھارتی امنگوں کی ترجمان کو نیب نے گرفتار کر لیا ہے! یہ بھارت کے لئے دھچکا ہے۔
The hysterical loser, India's major supporter in Pakistan #MaryamNawaz has been hauled up. This is a body blow for the Indians and a victory for #Kashmiris!#StandwithKashmir pic.twitter.com/Mdt3oCyrcY

She straight up called Maryam Nawaz a hysterical loser and an ally of India which in the current socio-political climate is a very dangerous term to associate with anyone.
She made Maryam Nawaz’s arrest about Kashmir somehow and said that the arrest was actually a way of standing in solidarity with the people of Kashmir
Quite a few people thought her comments were a little… much.
The Minister of Climate Change certainly needs to check the climate in her head. Her language is an environmental disaster. https://t.co/lLmnubNLrh

As a minister control you emotions and state the real facts she is arrested for which is corruption.

Others were a little more direct with what they thought of her

A few people were hoping it was a fake account but it wasn’t. Unfortunately
This has to be a fake account it should be a fake account https://t.co/1y0ggTnnFT

And of course, a few people did side with Zartaj Gul and stated that they could see some type of sense in her tweets and could understand why she might have said what she said
The rhetoric may be hostile, but Zartaj is not wrong. Maryam's words are clearly of benefit to the enemy. https://t.co/5Xrh9e8ny2

But unfortunately it wasn’t a fake account but the ministers own account which makes things worse. You would expect representatives of the government to exercise a little more control on their social media which is public. While she had every right to be pleased with Maryam Nawaz’s arrest for her own reasons, celebrating and making far off connections about the arrest was a little uncalled for.
What do you think of the State Minister for Climate Change tweeting so recklessly? Let us know in the comments below.
