Queen Elizabeth’s jubilee: Pakistan prime minister receives backlash for celebrations
Islamabad: Pakiatan Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif is receiving backlash from former premier and cricket hero Imran Khan’s supporters for feeding the cake to the British diplomat on Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations.
The Pakistani prime minister was invited to the British High Commission as a chief guest at an event to celebrate the monarch’s 96th birthday and her 75 years on the throne.
Shortly after pictures of the event surfaced online, Imran Khan’s aide and former human rights minister Dr Shireen Mazari was quick to attack the prime minister.
“Picture says it all. Imported Crime Minister with family and assets in UK degrading office of PM! I guess he doesn’t know the difference between expressing a dignified friendship between states and sheer sycophancy! Humiliating!,” she wrote while commenting on a picture of the prime minister feeding the cake to the British High Commissioner.
Imran Khan, who claims he was removed as prime minister through a US regime change policy, declares his political opponents slaves of the US and the West.
Khan is a father of two sons who live with his former wife Jemima Goldsmith in the United Kingdom.
Meanwhile, The National Monument in Islamabad was lit up to celebrate the 96th Birthday of Her Majesty The Queen, her Platinum Jubilee, and also to celebrate 75 years of of UK and Pakistan’s relations.
