Twitter mocking Murad Saeed on Pashtun accent
ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Communication Murad Saeed on Thursday was addressing the exploitation of Pashtun people’s grievances at the hands of Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) and called their support for Pashtun Tehreek Movement (PTM) as hypocrisy.
Twitter immediately went on a trolling spree as Saeed read out Zardari’s statement in his Pashtun accent, citing that PPP had defended drone strikes in FATA as ‘collateral damage’.
This is in response to Bilawal talking about the problems faced by the people of Waziristan, Murad Saeed is highlighting their hypocrisy. Attatched is a trimmed out portion of the speech which relates to this: pic.twitter.com/vAQrWOodWN

Twitter was divided as trolls went to poke fun at his accent, while some netizens expressed disgust at the trolling and braced the federal minister for speaking the truth.
In case you’re wondering what are the first two words Murad Saeed, our Federal Minister for Communications and Postal Services, has given tongue to in this video, know that they are ‘collateral damage’. Poor Murad! This kid is getting spoiled in our #PMSelect‘s company. 😄 pic.twitter.com/MXQGvd3hyp

There’s no point in making fun of somebody’s accent/English/pronunciation. If anything, it reflects that the one criticising has nothing substantial to offer. #BilawalBhuttoZardari #MuradSaeed https://t.co/STksirQGpK

Making fun of accents is so 2012. Murad Saeed pronouncing something wrong in English shouldn’t be a problem since it’s not his mother tongue. If this is some kind of standard you set for politicians then you’re still stuck in colonial era sir.

Don’t know about Shehryar but I see only Asad Umar and Murad Saeed deserving to lead PTI after IK, both started from PTI and have no baggage.. Also liberals hate both of them to an unimaginable level
