Khawaja Asif and Sheikh Rasheed have vowed to tutor their brother-in-comment Talal Chaudhry on how to be a misogynist, pass anti-feminism comments and still get away with it shamelessly.
In a joint statement issued hours after Talal Chaudhry tweeted regretting his comments which “hurt” Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan, both Khawaja Asif and Sheikh Rasheed put their differences aside and said they were pissed off to see that their comrade, who has the potential to be the leading sexist, had succumbed to social media campaigns ridiculing him for his remarks at the appearance of Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan.
“To get away with such comment is not an uphill task; you only need to come up with such sexist remarks so often that you are an established misogynist. Public memory is short and people move on,” the statement read.
Khawaja Asif reminded Talal Chaudhry how he had braved formidable opposition onslaught with an unpleasant smile on his face after his tractor trolley comments.
“Koi Sharm nai hoti, koi haya nai hoti,” he said in the statement, referring to the matters related to degrading women.
“Talal Chaudhry is trying to play on either side of the wicket, which is not a good game strategy,” said Sheikh Rasheed.
According to sources, Imran Khan also smiled when he watched Talal Chaudhry’s comment in video footage and asked his party not to react to it. Instead, he said Talal should try his skills on Bilawal too.
On the other hand, Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari has criticized the party of Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan for not supporting her against Talal Chaudhry. He said the silence of Fawad Chaudhry on the issue was not meaningless.
