After the demise of former first lady and wife of former Prime Minister of Pakistan Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif’s ailing wife, Begum Kulsoom Nawaz, a burning debate over social media fired up. It started when a known supporter of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf and anchorperson and actor Hamza Ali Abbasi, within few moments after the news had broken, took to the twitter in a piercing tone. He shared mere condolences emphasizing to not sympathize with Sharif’s family and use it as an excuse to dismiss the family’s wrongdoings.
Actor Hamza Ali Abbasi on Tuesday took to Twitter to express his opinions regarding former first lady Kulsoom Nawaz’s death following a months-long battle with throat cancer. He started by saying that people should not disrespect the deceased by saying that Sharif family members serving sentences should be released.
While PTI leaders seemed to demonstrate an understanding that someone’s passing is not a time to do politicizing, Hamza clearly missed that memo. Thankfully, many on Twitter wasted no time in reminding him of the same.
